Moo-ving to Lincoln, Steak Capitol of the World

Lincoln is located along I-80, in the southeast quadrant of the state of Nebraska, between Omaha and Grand Island. Though Lincoln is known for its super-friendly, down-home neighbors, the city’s low cost of living and amazing steak makes Lincoln even more delicious. Ready to moo-ve? Let’s find you a great apartment in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Cow-muting in Lincoln, Sometimes You Hoof It

Although Lincoln is a capital city, it has a small-town vibe. Every neighborhood has a park and, no matter where you are in Lincoln, you’ll have easy access to golf courses, Cornhusker’s football games, minor league baseball, and even women’s roller derby. That being said, location does, as always, matter. Thankfully, almost everywhere in town hasan easy commute, just so long as you’re not taking public transportation.

Simply put, driving is easy in Lincoln. Normal traffic conditions permitting, Lincolnites can drive across town within 25 minutes. If you want to avoid potholes, a bike commute across town will take under an hour at any time on Lincoln’s extensive bike path system. Beware of travelling on the six Football Saturdays in autumn though, or you’ll find yourself somewhere in the middle of the 80,000 Cornhusker’s fans that flock from all over the state to turn the Cornhusker’s Memorial Stadium into the 3rd largest “city” in Nebraska.

Although cars and bikes are easy in Lincoln, public transportation can be a pain. The StarTran buses are clean and comfortable, but they only operate from 5:00 AM to 7:30 PM on weekdays, with reduced hours and routes on Saturdays and no service on Sundays. For those looking to transfer, you might want to reconsider. The buses go everywhere in the city, but connections to other routes are only made through one main hub, so your bus commute may be extra long depending on your destination.

Moo-vers and Shakers: Downtown & South Lincoln

South Lincoln consists of everything south of O St. and is the largest section of Lincoln. This area has many different looks to it depending on where you go, but the price of your house and average age of your neighbors tend to increase as you head further down south.

Lincoln’s downtown is mostly a commercial district filled with stone and column government buildings, so those looking for a happening residential area downtown should make their way toward Haymarket (see North Lincoln). Just south of downtown is the gorgeous Near South neighborhood where a 2BR apartment will typically cost you $600. Near South is filled with college grads, artists, and the Sunken Gardens, all surrounded by big trees and huge lawns. Another lovely place in South Lincoln is Irvingdale where a 2BR apartment in an ivy-covered brownstone will cost a similarly inexpensive $650.

Since the city of Lincoln has already annexed all the would-be suburban areas, your best bet to find something similar are the Far South and Southern Hills neighborhoods, just below Highway 2. Here, you’ll not only find a nice 2BR house or town home for an easy $600, but you’ll also come across small, well-kept yards, front porches, and that charming small town atmosphere. Unlike the aforementioned southern bit of Lincoln’s downtown, your neighbors will mostly fall into the younger/middle-aged demographics.

Cowntdown to Graduation: North Lincoln

North Lincoln encapsulates everything between south of I-80 and north of O St. This section is home to the University of Nebraska, and your neighbors here are guaranteed to be college kids, meaning long-lasting, loud college parties. However, rowdy nights aren’t the only thing you’ll find in North Lincoln. Some of the best art in town populates this area, offering everything from captivating performances to fascinating visual arts. And if you’re not one for the collegiate house-party scene, O St., between 9th and 17th, features some excellent venues to scratch that nightlife itch. Plus, if, like most Lincolnites, you can’t live without your Cornhusker football games, you can skip the traffic and parking snafus and simply walk or bike straight to Memorial Stadium. The most student-friendly neighborhoods are East Campus, with the historical “Professor Row” where no two houses look alike and University Place and North Bottoms.. All of these areas have 2BR’s available for an affordable $500.

North Lincoln also holds the residential section of downtown: Haymarket. For only $800, you can rent a 2BR in a large, brick apartment building surrounded by Lincoln’s most diverse neighborhood of young professionals, recent college grads, and artists. Special attractions here include college and minor league baseball at Haymarket Park, and the weekly farmer’s market.

Hate college parties next door but can’t afford South or East Lincoln? Try moving north of the Cornhusker Highway to largely undeveloped, retirement-friendly Autumn Wood, where $500 will net you a 1BR apartment in a large building. Not ready to retire? Try Bicentennial Estates where you can nab yourself a large suburban colonial-style home complete with a basketball hoop in the driveway for $900. If mobile home living is more your style, try Sunset Acres, a large neighborhood with an attractive price tag: $500 for a 2BR.

On the Udder Side of the World: West Lincoln

West Lincoln involves everything west of Salt Creek: wide open spaces, woods, fields and undeveloped private land. In short: this area is the country. It’s easier to rent a house way out here than an apartment, but for $1100, a 2BR in the neighborhood of Hitching Post Hills or Yankee Hill will make you feel at home.

The Links of Lincoln: East Lincoln

If you love golf, you’ll love East Lincoln. This area is the most expensive section in town, but with good reason: almost every block holds a golf course. In Crown Pointe, for instance, the residents here are all golf-loving folks with huge houses complete with bay windows, multiple-peaks and enormous, well-trimmed lawns. Those huge houses will cost you though; a 4BR house will run you around $1900.

Far From the Madding Cow’d: Northwest

Northwest Lincoln sits north of O St. and west of Salt Creek. This section holds the Lincoln Airport (though it’s less expensive to get a flight from Omaha), some fun lakes, and some very suburban neighborhoods. The Highlands area lies between the airport and I-80, while Arnold Heights holds former military housing right beside the airfield. In Highlands you can get a 2BR apartment near split-level, ranch-style tract homes for $700, and only a 1BR apartment in Arnold Heights featuring views of carports and single-level brick houses. For recently retired couples, a large apartment building near the stylish and huge homes in Capitol Beach could be your best bet. A 3BR apartment here will set you back $900. Don’t worry, that price includes a stellar view of the lake.

Now that you’re outfitted with all the right apartment hunting tips, it’s time for you to go out and grab you one, assuming you survived all cow-themed puns (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves). One more thing: if you’re a fan of the Boulder Buffs, you might want to leave your shirts at home when, but you probably already knew that.

January 2020 Lincoln Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2020 Lincoln Rent Report. Lincoln rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Lincoln rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Lincoln rents held steady over the past month

Lincoln rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, but are up slightly by 1.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Lincoln stand at $656 for a one-bedroom apartment and $864 for a two-bedroom. Lincoln's year-over-year rent growth lags the state and national averages, which both stand at 1.4%.

    Lincoln rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased slightly in Lincoln, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Lincoln is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Lincoln's median two-bedroom rent of $864 is below the national average of $1,192. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 1.2% rise in Lincoln.
    • While Lincoln's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.8%), Dallas (+2.2%), and Seattle (+1.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Lincoln than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,088, which is more than three-and-a-half times the price in Lincoln.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S. at this link.

    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.

    Apartment List has released Lincoln’s results from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters nationwide, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the country’s 111 million renters.

    "Lincoln renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "However, ratings varied greatly across different categories, indicating that even though renters love Lincoln, some aspects can be better."

    Key Findings in Lincoln include the following:

    • The highest-rated categories for Lincoln were affordability (A+), jobs and career opportunities (A), safety and low crime (A) and quality of local schools (A).
    • The areas of concern to Lincoln renters are pet-friendliness (D), state and local taxes (C) and weather (C).
      • Lincoln earned similar scores compared to other Midwestern cities like Omaha (B-) and Cleveland (C), but earned lower marks than Saint Paul (A) and Kansas City (B).
    • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

    Renters say:

    • "I love the growth in businesses for younger adults. Also, Lincoln is a great size: it has a small-town feel but is big enough to explore new things." -Stephanie R.
    • "Lincoln has lots to do and feels relatively safe. I don’t like the traffic issues." -Kathleen A.
    • "I love that Lincoln has a diverse music scene and great nightlife. I hate the subpar transportation services and lack of local shops." -Shanda S.
