City GuideWestlake
The lovely Cleveland, Ohio suburb of Westlake was called Dover until 1940, when it was renamed to avoid being confused with another Ohio town, also, unsurprisingly enough, called Dover.

Westlake became a city in 1957. With a post-World War II doubling of it’s population, it was no longer a village. Current population hovers at 32,000 residents, but the town began with just two families and an oxcart in 1810. Homesteaders cleared heavily forested land, providing fields for livestock, and water power for sawmills. A key agricultural enclave, Westlake was a large shipping outlet for grapes. Fruit of the vine, anyone? Today, the town grows more than just grapes. It houses a centrally located hub of housing, shops, and offices, as well as a core green space park filled with fountains, community areas, and even chess boards.

Living In Westlake

Along with Crocker Park, which stands as the largest development in the city, Westlake has encouraged business growth for major employers such as Hyland Software, Dave and Busters, and the University Hospital Health System. We wonder - do Dave and Busters employees play video games at least a portion of every work day? American Greetings, the bastion of Get Well, Happy Birthday, and Congratulations wishes on cards across the U.S., is also located here.

Only twelve miles from Cleveland, bike paths and pedestrian friendly sidewalks and trails make Westlake an easy community to get around. The town features a mix of condos for rent, duplexes for rent, and home rentals. If you’re looking for hi rise apartments, they’re in good supply too. A mix of single family homes, attached homes, and apartments of all types make up the character of Westlake. Most properties were built between 1970 and 1999, with a strong supply of newer homes and older, elegant properties available too. Six different wards, each rife with parks, recreation facilities, and community social life, make up Westlake. Lake Erie is near by, for boating, bathing, and wildlife watching.

Right in town, you’ll find The Westlake Recreation Center with it’s soccer and baseball fields, track, tennis, and fishing pond. Indoor facilities abound, including an aquatic center with a lazy river and water slides. There are three area golf courses, Lakewood Country Club, Meadowood, and Hilliard Lakes where you can swing a nine iron.

Neighborhoods

West Dover: Arguably the most buzz worthy neighborhood in Westlake, this established neighborhood has a low vacancy rate. Most homes here were built between 1970 and 1999.

Dover Village: This classic community features mid-century modern design unique enough to warrant city building guidelines to preserve it. The properties are both older and more luxurious than West Dover.

Crocker Park: Located downtown, this mixed use development features a variety of housing, as well as businesses, recreation facilities, and open space. Modern apartments and town homes are the primary form of residence.

Bretton Woods: This is a neighborhood of primarily detached houses, with some larger rental complexes mixed in.  While a river doesn’t run through it, the bucolic Schwartz Creek does.

Laurel Woods: This is the neighborhood for you if you want to reside in an area mixed with houses, apartment complexes, and town homes.

The Estates: Looking for luxury living in a central location?  The Estates is a planned community featuring a pool and tennis courts.

Tips for Renting     

Westlake residents spend a lean fifteen to thirty minutes commuting. While many drive solo to work, residents employed in-town can often bike to work, and residents of the Crocker Park area may have their workplace in easy walking distance to their home.

Start searching about a month or two before a planned move to the Westlake community. With many housing options available, vacancy rates are low in this desirable area.

January 2019 Westlake Rent Report

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

Westlake rents increase sharply over the past month

Westlake rents have increased 1.3% over the past month, but are down moderately by 1.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Westlake stand at $930 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,160 for a two-bedroom. Westlake's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.2%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

    Rents steady across cities in Ohio

    While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Westlake over the past year, trends across other cities in the state have varied. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Ohio, half have seen prices drop while others are seeing them rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.2% 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, Dublin is the most expensive of all Ohio's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,200; of the 10 largest Ohio cities that we have data for, 5 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Hamilton experiencing the fastest decline (-5.0%).
    • Dublin, Fairfield, and Cincinnati have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (5.8%, 3.0%, and 1.2%, respectively).

    Westlake rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have fallen moderately in Westlake, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Westlake is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Westlake's median two-bedroom rent of $1,160 is slightly below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 1.7% decline in Westlake.
    • While rents in Westlake fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.3%), New York (+2.7%), and Denver (+2.5%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Westlake than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,090, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Westlake.

    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.
