City Guide
What to Expect

Beginning in 1992, downtown renovations sparked a revitalization of area businesses. Texans living in the further flung and more residential areas of Abilene now have a variety of entertainment, dining and shopping options right downtown.


As downtown Abilene develops, apartment and housing options for Abilene residents do as well. Most of the development is concentrated in south and southwest Abilene, near both Dyess Air Force Base and the recently-constructed Mall of Abilene. Large, well-maintained complexes just outside of the loop draw in many area residents. Complexes located on Cedar Run Road, Ridgemont Drive and Rolling Green Drive offer some of the most desirable rentals in the city. As one moves towards the southern suburb of Buffalo Gap, rentals tend to become more loaded with amenities.

The northeastern portion of Abilene also offers a variety of desirable housing options.

The south, southwest and northeast areas of Abilene all have similar rents, with prices ranging from $700 to 900 for a two bedroom.

Types of Rentals

The Abilene rental market, particularly rentals in the desirable southwestern portion of the city, is dominated by newly constructed condo and apartment complexes. These buildings offer apartments with varying amenities--many with onsite laundry, swimming pools and fitness and community centers.

Abilene's newer developments are rented predominately through real estate agents and management companies. Realtors can provide new residents with a larger variety of newer apartment options than going directly through management agencies.

Single family homes and privately owned rentals are most often listed through online apartment search databases or in the community's papers.

To secure a rental in new developments, private homes or apartment buildings, be prepared to cough up fees for background and credit checks varying from $30 to $50. Deposits on apartments in the area range from $200 to one month's rent based on the location and type of rental.


Downtown Abilene is ringed by Winters and Jake Roberts Freeways, which provide easy access to and from the major commercial district. Traffic and commuting times are generally low throughout the city.

Metropolitan Abilene is serviced by the CityLink bus system which has 19 routes operating throughout the city, from early morning into the late evening. Most bus routes intersect at the Downtown Transfer Station, allowing easy access from residential Abilene to downtown.

So welcome home to Abilene!

Rent Report

December 2017 Abilene Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2017 Abilene Rent Report. Abilene rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Abilene rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Abilene rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, but have increased slightly by 1.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Abilene stand at $650 for a one-bedroom apartment and $870 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September. Abilene's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 2.4%, as well as the national average of 2.7%.

Rents rising across cities in Texas

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Abilene, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Texas, 8 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.4% 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, Plano is the most expensive of all Texas' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,420; of the 10 largest cities in Texas that we have data for, Corpus Christi and Lubbock, where two-bedrooms go for $1,030 and $820, are the only two major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.3% and -0.2%).
  • Arlington, Fort Worth, and Dallas have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.2%, 4.8%, and 2.4%, respectively).

Abilene rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

  • Abilene's median two-bedroom rent of $870 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.7% over the past year compared to the 1.3% increase in Abilene.
  • While Abilene's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw more substantial increases, including Phoenix (+3.9%), Seattle (+3.5%), and Atlanta (+2.3%).

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.
