City Guide
Independence
Neighborhoods in Independence

The key to finding a good place in Independence is knowing who you are and what you're looking for. While Independence may not have the amenities of Chicago, St. Louis, or well, even really Kansas City, there are neighborhoods that will play to the specific type of lifestyle you want to live.

Independence has a well-preserved and charming historical district located close to downtown. Okay, so this is not Michigan Avenue, and it certainly isn't Madison Avenue. But, the rents certainly aren't Michigan or Madison Avenues either. The Englewood Art District on the western edge of town and the nearby Historic Independence Square have several two and three bedroom rental homes that put you within easy walking distance to art galleries and independent restaurants and shops. The characteristics of this neighborhood--including the rental market dominated by older single-family homes. Prices here range from $550 to 750 for a two bedroom.

I've got two words for you: the mall. Along the southeast corridor of Independence lies a Shangri-La of suburban development. At the apex of this development are the shopping centers, restaurants and large bars that surround the Independence Center Mall. The highly desirable rentals in the south and southeast portion of town are characteristically new and well-maintained. Additionally, these apartments have a wider variety of amenities--including pools, exercise centers and community facilities--than other rentals throughout town. IRents ranging from $650 to 800 for a two bedroom.

The northern portion of Independence: A number of larger and older apartment complexes dominate the rental market in this part of town.

Transportation

Independence is serviced by the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority which operates two bus lines into and out of town. KCATA also provides Dial-a-Ride service for parts of the region that are inaccessible to fixed bus routes. And while you may not be commuting by bicycle, there are 15 miles of bike lanes for getting around town.

So, with all this information in mind, feel free to jump in and get started finding your perfect Independent pad!

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.

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.
