City Guide
Ardmore
Moving to Ardmore

Ardmore has higher home purchase prices than most of Pennsylvania, but why be a cheapskate? Besides, when you look at the country as a whole, they're fairly reasonable. Sure, if you are looking for apartment rentals or duplexes for rent, you will pay more here than you will in some other areas. But you know what they say when it comes to real estate: location is everything! Because Ardmore is a small town with an excellent location, you're going to pay for the privilege of living here. So suck it up and pull out your checkbook!

The areas closest to Lancaster Avenue are going to cost more. This area is extremely walkable, and you can probably get by without a car. The farther away you venture, the less you'll pay, but if you need to add a car payment, gasoline, and insurance to that... well, you can do the math! It's good to look at all of your options and to think about what you'll need to access most often. Paying a bit more for rental properties in Ardmore might make sense if you plan on taking the bus in town and to Philadelphia, because you'll be closer to those amenities.

Neighborhoods in Ardmore

Ardmore is comprised of three designated neighborhoods, each with unique features. It is important when choosing between neighborhoods to think of your own individual needs before committing to one location -- after all, you don't want to end up in a densely packed walking area having to maneuver a giant pickup truck every day!

North: The northernmost section is bordered by West Lancaster Avenue. This is where you'll pay the most for rental properties. This area is considered a "walker's paradise" because everything you want will be within a half mile or so. Be sure to pack plenty of walking shoes! This neighborhood is a great bet for those who want to be close to the action and not worry about car maintenance.

East: To the east is the neighborhood around East Lancaster and Cricket avenues. Housing is less expensive here, so keep this neighborhood in mind if your apartment search in Ardmore has been limited due to a lower housing budget.

South: The southernmost neighborhood, also located to the east, is Ardmore Park. This is the largest neighborhood in the town, and because of its size, it's less walkable than the other areas. This can be a good thing, because if you have a set of wheels, you can save on your rental fees. Even if you don't, though, you won't necessarily be left behind in the dust; there are some bus stops along Hathaway Lane. Check out Marrone's Pizzeria for dinner.

Living in Ardmore

There are plenty of great places to eat in Ardmore, such as Laxmi's Indian Grill, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Cafe San Pietro and Felicia Pizza Kitchen all within yards of each other. Grab a slice or a whole pie at Marrone's Pizzeria or try the lo mein at Pak Yue Chinese Restaurant.

For those who love a day out grabbing some morning brew before partaking in retail therapy, check out Sabrina's Cafe for some liquid energy, followed by shopping at places like Gap or Urban Outfitters. And for the less chain-inspired shoppers out there, check out some of the local thrift shops such as Browse Around Thrift Shop and Junior League Thrift Shop.

With three distinct neighborhoods to choose from and lots to do within easy reach, you're sure to love this gem of a town! If you get bored - not much of a possibility with all there is to do here - you can take a bus into Philadelphia for a wide variety of cultural and sporting events, amazing restaurants and all types of entertainment. Living in Ardmore is a win / win situation!

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.
