City Guide
Morrisville
Moving to Morrisville

The majority of homes in Morrisville are single family, but if you want to rent an apartment in the area, the task wont be impossible. Its essentially a college town, so turnover is high, with an annual residential turnover of 35%. Whether youre looking for a house or an apartment, the homes there are nearly equally either rented or bought, so renting is a definitely possibility in Morristown.

Morristowns rental prices are about average for a one bedroom or studio, you can expect to pay about half of the rates in larger cities which is similar to suburban areas located close to big cities or universities throughout the country. The area is a good mix of families with children who are associated with nearby universities and graduate students (some undergrads) who are looking not to live right on campus so whether you are married with kids or looking to build a community of young people for yourself, Morrisville could be just the right place for you.

If you want to move to Morrisville, you better come prepared. Gather up your financial documents -- bank statements, pay stubs, tax returns, and be prepared to have a credit report run. Also, make sure you have a bunch of cash on hand. Moving will be expensive -- especially if you use a real estate broker. You might also want to consider hiring professional movers so that you can ensure that all of your stuff gets there in one piece.

Neighborhoods

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.
