City GuideAkron
Akron began as a canal town. Known as the “Rubber Capital of the World,” Akron is no longer home to the many tire companies it once nurtured, but instead is home to more than 200,000 residents who love this city for its plethora of activities, friendly neighborhoods and that oh-so-friendly Midwestern attitude we all know and envy.

When it comes to important contributions to society, Akron has no shortage. The “City of Invention” (Yes, this city has several nicknames) has given America some of its most beloved possessions: Quaker Oats, an abundance of rubber, and Lebron James. So pack the car (check the tires), hit the highway and see just what Akron can contribute to you.

Neighborhoods: History meets Re-invention

Although the areas around here may be offer something a bit different from the others, that feeling of small town America is prominent as ever. The history is rich in this Ohio city, and the tire companies have certainly left their mark (yes, Goodyear and Firestone seriously have their own namesake neighborhoods), but there is no doubt that being neighborly is essential to being an Akronite.

Highland Square: The streets here are lined with unique shops, such as boutiques, antique and vintage stores. It’s a lively and active neighborhood made up of older, often Craftsman-style homes and apartment buildings from the 1920s. Just as the type of housing here ranges in size, so does the price tag. It is in close proximity to downtown and to University Park

Goodyear Heights: Named after the tire company that once called Akron its home, Goodyear Heights has single-family housing surrounded by an easily walkable area. Goodyear Heights also features Metropolitan Park, which provides plenty of outdoor space for jogging, biking and the like. Housing and apartments are older here (built in and around the 1940s), and the “affordable housing” idea that the community was built on is still relevant today.

Downtown: As with most cities, Downtown Akron is the city’s business and commerce center. Downtown has seen a resurgence – or reinvention (see what we did there?) – in the past few years as old warehouse buildings near Canal Park have been converted into new, modern lofts and luxury apartments. In addition to these newer, swankier pads are older, single-family homes. There are tons of activities to keep you busy as well. Whether dining out at one of the restaurants/bars, taking in a concert at Lock 3 Park or exercising on the nearby bike paths, living here means never having a dull moment.

Northwest Akron: The area of Northwest Akron features a large amount of single-family homes, mostly on large lots, as well as apartment buildings in Portage Path and near the North Hawkins area. Community centers and parks pepper the area.

Firestone Park: As one of Akron’s largest neighborhoods, Firestone Park has everything a nuclear family could ever want: various stores and even a few parks. We’re under the impression that you’ll have a difficult time finding a good reason to travel elsewhere.

Elizabeth Park: Located within walking distance to Akron’s downtown, this area is perfect for those who want a little suburb and a little city. Developed around the old Ohio & Erie Canal (many residents have old canal locks in their back yards), the homes here were built either in the 1920s or in the housing boom of the 1940s. While Elizabeth Park does feature many single-family homes, it is also very possible to find townhomes, apartments and larger homes for rent. Thanks in part to the bike and hiking paths in the area, Elizabeth Park is a scenic neighborhood that isn’t just a cozy spot to settle into, but an active one too.

Get Your Motor Running

Just as you’d expect from a city that built its reputation on tires, the main form of transportation here is the automobile. Public transportation options (the METRO bus system and trolleys) are available, however, but most residents rely on their own set of wheels and two major interstates (I-76, I-77) to navigate through the city. Those going to and from the downtown area, or any major business district, rely on the Akron Innerbelt, a six-lane highway that also connects drivers to the other interstates.

With countless entertainment options, housing in every type of neighborhood and plenty of parks and green spaces, it’s easy to see why so many Akronites proudly reside here. What are you waiting for? Reinvention is just one apartment search away. Get hunting!

August 2019 Akron Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Akron Rent Report. Akron rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Akron rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Akron rents decline sharply over the past month

Akron rents have declined 0.8% over the past month, but have increased marginally by 0.9% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Akron stand at $617 for a one-bedroom apartment and $817 for a two-bedroom. Akron's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.3%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across cities in Ohio

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Akron, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Ohio, 9 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.3% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

    • Looking throughout the state, Columbus is the most expensive of all Ohio's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $966; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Youngstown, where a two-bedroom goes for $729, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.5%).
    • Cincinnati and Lorain have both experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (1.9% and 1.8%, respectively).

    Akron rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Akron's median two-bedroom rent of $817 is below the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 0.9% increase in Akron.
    • While Akron's rents rose marginally over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Dallas (+2.1%), and New York (+1.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Akron than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,126, which is more than three-and-a-half times the price in Akron.

    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.
