Greetings, Wolverine State apartment hunters, and welcome to your Muskegon, Michigan apartment hunting headquarters! A beautiful and eclectic city situated on Lake Michigan’s eastern shoreline, Muskegon boasts not only some of the most scenic views in the Upper Midwest but also some of the most affordable and attractive apartments you’ll find anywhere.

Inexpensive apartments in Muskegon are a dime a dozen, with basic one-bedroom units starting in the $400-$500 range and upscale luxury rentals usually going for only about $800. Just because rentals in Muskegon are über-inexpensive, however, doesn’t mean they come equipped with the bare necessities only. Even at the most modestly priced apartments, amenities often include on-site laundry facilities, spacious interiors (800-plus square feet), patios/balconies, fitness centers, walk-in closets, and covered parking.

If you’re looking for a pet-friendly (including dogs allowed), furnished, or short-term rental, meanwhile, you’re in luck, because plenty are available in Muskegon. Just be prepared to spend an extra $25-$50 a month in rent if you’re leasing a furnished apartment or bringing a furry four-legged roomie along. Feel free to shop the market thoroughly for the best leasing deals since waiting lists are rare and dynamite move-in specials pop up frequently throughout the year.

As always, we recommend spending plenty of time in a neighborhood, getting a feel for its residents and its vibes, before considering an apartment lease there.

One thing you’ll notice pretty quickly about Muskegon is that the city is home to quite a few eccentrics and artsy types, giving the “Riviera of the Midwest” a chic, SoCal-meets-Portland sort of feel. The city plays host to a vibrant arts and music scene anchored by the eclectic Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp and a slew of galleries, museums, and theaters. Factor in numerous shopping districts, annual festivals, parks, trails, and lakeside beaches and we guarantee you’ll never run out of things to do in Muskegon.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
