City Guide
Renting in Loveland

Loveland still has many homes from the '50s, but has seen a surge in new apartment complexes and housing communities in recent years. With only five square miles of area and a lot of people wanting to move here, you might need a few weeks to look around for the ideal place to rent. If possible, move to Loveland in spring or autumn, or even in the steamy days of summer, but try to avoid having to drag your couch through a February blizzard.

Like most places these days, you should be prepared to show apartment managers your proof of income, rental references, credit history and your childhood measles vaccination scar (Just kidding on that last one, we think).

Choosing a Neighborhood in Loveland

The Loveland Castle, or Chateau Laroche, just to the north of the city doesn't seem to be for sale or rent, with its towering gray stone walls and medieval parapets rising above the trees. So with that out of the way, where else can you look for home rentals in Loveland? Here are the the major neighborhoods in town:

Historic Downtown Loveland: This area has been revitalized since the mid-90s, with new, trendy cafes and shops emerging alongside down-home, old-fashioned fun. There are rental apartments that let residents enjoy a bit of urban lifestyle. There's even a classic Main Street running through the center of the neighborhood, as well as the Loveland Shopping Center, old red brick buildings, the city library, bar and grills, art galleries and ice cream parlors.

South Heights: This neighborhood in Loveland is close to downtown, but -- you guessed it, a bit to the south -- making it even closer to Cincinnati. The streets begin to stretch out in this area, with many homes from the '70s and '80s, as well as those in newer communities, having big, grassy yards. The rental apts in this area often are found in one of many sprawling complexes. South Heights also goes right up to the Little Miami River, and the major boulevard that runs near the water, Loveland Madeira Road, offers banks, restaurants, shopping and of course bowling, for those athletes among us.

East Loveland: For those of you who prefer to watch birds instead of your neighbors, this is the part of town for you. The East Loveland Nature Preserve has nature trails through green woods and O'Bannon Creek, which flows off of the Little Miami River. If you like to be outside but don't care so much for birds and squirrels, East Loveland also boasts McCoy Park, which is equipped with picnic tables, baseball fields and a playground. East Loveland, which sits just across the river from downtown, is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the city, with businesses sprouting up, from consulting firms to hardware stores.

Loving Life in Loveland

After you find an apartment to rent, don't stay home and be a couch potato. Any place in town is close to the center. And being set right on the river, Downtown Loveland is a great place to work off that steak and ice cream by hopping on your bicycle or unicycle and cruising down the Loveland Bike Trail, the local segment of the 68.5-mile long, paved Little Miami Scenic Trail. There are also local gyms to train in, pottery classes to attend, art studios that will help you decorate your new home with style and brick oven-fired pizzas to reward yourself for your cross-training and hiking. For cultural satisfaction, the Loveland Stage Company community theater offers plays, musicals, variety shows and dance lessons.

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.

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.
