City Guide
Living in Ypsilanti

The culture in Ypsilanti is a lot more edgy than Ann Arbor. Where Ann Arbor talks about social change from ivory towers, Ypsi puts it into action. Ypsi was the first city in Michigan to elect a Muslim to office way back in the 1970s, and the first city in Michigan to pass a living wage ordinance in the 1990s. The city also passed an extremely broad ban on discrimination in housing and employment based on sexual orientation, body weight and gender identity/transgender status, and defended it twice against repeal efforts. This is a city that welcomes everyone and wants you to know it.

Moving to Hip Ypsilanti

So if you’ve decided that Ypsi is where you want to be, let’s just say congratulations. You’ve made a good choice. Now you need to start looking for an apartment to rent in Ypsilanti. Fortunately, Ypsi is the much cheaper alternative to Ann Arbor, so this is a better place to look if you have any challenging situations like bruised credit or irregular employment.

If you do have good rental history references and a decent job history, you shouldn’t have any difficulty finding a good apartment in Ypsilanti. If you do have any special circumstances, such as needing to bring pets or to be close to public transportation routes, you might want to check with an apartment locator to get their help in helping you find what you’re looking for. Yes, pet-friendly apartments in Ypsilanti are even available! You might have to pay an extra security deposit or slightly increased monthly rent, but there’s probably no need to leave your furry friend behind. You may even be able to find all bills paid apartments in Ypsilanti, because there's a pretty wide variety of housing.

Getting Around This Cool Town

Many people can choose to get by without a car in the Ypsilanti area. The Ann Arbor Transportation Authority, or The Ride, offers fixed-route buses, van pools, door-to-door service and express buses between and through Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. A lot of locals also choose to walk and ride bikes, especially during the times of year when there isn’t a lot of snow on the ground.  

It’s pretty rare that the cooler neighborhoods are also the cheaper ones, but Ypsilanti happens to be that exceptional community.

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.


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.
