City Guide
Moving to Lansdowne

The Victorian homes and row houses of New England real estate dreams are abundant in this tree-lined borough of Philadelphia. Those looking for a picturesque town where there is always something going on and several big cities nearby will be at home in Lansdowne. Today, the stately Victorian homes are used as single residences as well as being split into smaller rental units. This eliminates the existence of tons of apartment complexes and instead provides renters with more unique rental options.


Rental properties are not scarce here, but can be easier to find depending on which of Lansdowne's three neighborhoods you opts for.

West Baltimore Avenue / Mansfield Road: The North Western portion of Lansdowne features mostly owner-occupied housing, but that does not mean that rental properties are the stuff of urban myths. If you are looking for rental property, whether it's studio apartments for rent or pet-friendly apartments, you will simply need more time and persistence. This neighborhood seems to specialize in the unexpected, with a favorite local pizza shop named not after any of Pennsylvania's famous Americans but after Massachusetts' Paul Revere. Paul Revere Pizza may seem oddly named, but its pizza is as much of a staple to the neighborhood as Reservoir Park.

North Lansdowne Avenue/East Greenwood Avenue: Separated from the above neighborhood by Lansdowne Avenue, it can be open to interpretation which neighborhood businesses on Lansdowne Avenue fit into. Lansdowne Theatre is featured on the bordering avenue, but this northeast section of Lansdowne claims it as its own. Currently, the focus of a major renovation project with a newly relit marquee and the location for Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar role in Silver Linings Playbook, the theatre embodies much of the cultural and historic vibes this 'hood has to offer. In addition to a bus route right down Lansdowne Avenue, the North Lansdowne Avenue / East Greenwood Avenue offers the greatest mix of renters and owners, creating a housing market with easy to find rental properties in Lansdowne.

Borough Center: With only three neighborhoods in Lansdowne, it might make more geographical sense to refer to this area as Borough South, but no one asked us. It could come as a pleasant surprise for potential residents that this area tends to have the most available places to live in when it is home to Hoffman Park, Shrigley Park and Pennock Woods Park, along with Darby Creek. The natural beauty and recreational opportunities provided by this neighborhood are only enhanced with the presence of the 20th Century Club, where performances are staged and private parties are held. Perhaps some are intimidated by this tiny neighborhood, which allows residents to walk the town, make use of public transport, enjoy nature, entertain like Gatsby and remain engaged in the borough's active community.

Living in Lansdowne

Olympic medalists Leroy Burrell and Bruce Harlan have called Lansdowne home. Not only does Lansdowne boast famous past residents, but the architecture could be considered the area's most famous feature. The works of architects Frank Furness and William H. Lee are featured in town, along with several places on the National Register of Historic Places. Lansdowne could easily be described as progressive in its use of public transportation, its walkability and green factors such as the existence of a weekly Farmers' Market during growing seasons. In today's world, it could be deemed progressive simply because it has yet to sign up for a reality show expose of its residents. It is recognized as one of the Classic Towns of Pennsylvania but remains very down to earth, even with such a fancy title so long as you remember how to spell its name correctly. A true sign of an outsider is one who spells the borough Landsdowne, which thoroughly annoys the locals who find superfluous "d's" most distressing.

Getting Around Lansdowne

Lansdowne offers so many options for getting around. The borough itself is frequently noted for its walkability while bus lines and rail lines provide opportunities to get out and about in the nearby big cities. Cars are not really a necessity, but many residents still opt for them. Cyclists also find it easy to get around in this bike-friendly borough, as they maintain the calf muscles we all covet.

**Lansdowne Lifestyle

When many small towns brag about culture, usually they mean a historical place and a theatre. Not so for this booming borough. Lansdowne is home to the Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra, Lansdowne Folk Club and Celebration Theatre. It also loves any reason to get together and celebrate. Even the crunchy granola residents of California may be shocked to hear of community events such as The Big Seed Exchange and Bike Repair Day. All are part of this area's interest in being green and staying connected. The City-Wide Yard Sale, Memorial Day Parade and Lansdowne Art Festival are more of the offerings of this quirky community south of Philly. Antiquing, shopping, dining and listening to live music are the simplest ways to describe the Lansdowne lifestyle.

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.

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.
