City GuideAllentown
Surprisingly, this place was named after Allen. Its mighty industrial days may be behind it but Allentown, Pennsylvania (so creatively named after its founder, William Allen), isn’t taking it lying down.

Vestiges of its former manufacturing glory remain, along with the magnificently historical homes that went along with it, and the city is endeavoring to restore it all . This may sound like the plot line to a Charles Dickens novel, but what it translates into for you, the renter, is a bargain paradise. This is a small city of 122,000. Allentown has properties galore ranging from Victorian to Craftsman to row house to bungalow and back again for an average of $700 in monthly rent. Gloriously, they all place you a short distance from both the bright lights of New York City and the cheese steaks of Philadelphia. Can a better deal be had for night-clubbing cheese steak lovers on a budget? Decidedly not.

Neighborhoods

Allentown’s historical epicenter and modern commercial center is Center City. The historical districts of Old Allentown and Old Fairgrounds are here, but though blessed with some amazing architecture.

Downtown Center City is somewhat more livable, and can now boast loft apartments in converted old mills and high-rise buildings. They ring in around $700 for a 1BR or up to $1300 for a luxury 2BR. Also nearby, the 7th street district offers a decent amount of housing with eateries lining the streets. There are plenty of studio spaces here starting as low as $500 for efficiencies, ranging to around $800 for 3BR apartments, all typically in larger, renovated buildings.

West End Allentown is a major bright spot. The West End primarily includes neighborhoods west of 15th Street and houses here are mostly of the historical variety from the 1920s and 40s. The 19th street Theatre District is here as well as the popular weekend Farmer’s Market. If you’re looking for adorable sidewalk cafes, boutiques, and quirky bars, West End is as close as it gets - and its offerings are growing steadily. Hamilton and Trexler parks are nearby, as well as Union Terrace and the West Park historical district, meaning you’re never too far away from frolicking in the grass, gaping at stately mansions or taking in the latest regional theatrical production of Cats, performed solely by real, trained housecats (one can dream). One-bedroom apartments average around $550, with 2BR and 3BR apartments and townhouses ranging from $700 - $1400 depending on size and historical value. Single family homes can be had in the area for around $1500, varying up to $2,000 for the larger historical mansions.

I’ve secretly yearned for a buggie.

Allentown is well connected to New York and Philadelphia by interstates. Though Allentown is not currently connected by train, there are plans in the works for that and for now, there are multiple private bus lines running frequent routes into both Philadelphia and New York. Lehigh and Northampton counties are also served locally by the LANTA bus system. Unlike other parts of the East coast, having a car in Allentown is still incredibly convenient, if not necessary.

August 2019 Allentown Rent Report

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

Allentown rents increase sharply over the past month

Allentown rents have increased 1.3% over the past month, and have increased slightly by 1.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Allentown stand at $906 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,144 for a two-bedroom. Allentown's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, but trails the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across cities in Pennsylvania

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Allentown, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Pennsylvania, 9 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.1% 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, Norristown is the most expensive of all Pennsylvania's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,434; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Erie, where a two-bedroom goes for $719, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.5%).
    • Harrisburg, Norristown, and Pittsburgh have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.7%, 1.7%, and 1.4%, respectively).

    Allentown rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Allentown's median two-bedroom rent of $1,144 is slightly below the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 1.2% increase in Allentown.
    • While Allentown's rents rose slightly 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 Allentown than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,126, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Allentown.

    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.
