City Guide
Amarillo
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Amarillo is home to a large number of rodeos, equestrian competitions and motor sport expositions held annually in downtown Amarillo, including the Tri-State Fair and Rodeo and the World Championship Ranch Rodeo.

Nature-lovers take heart. Twenty-five miles south of Amarillo is the extensive and scenic system of canyons known as Palo Duro. The six miles of multi-use trails within the park can access Lighthouse Peak, the area’s signature feature.

So, about the weather. Amarillo has a semi-arid climate, and it’s centrally located in the flat, dusty, wind-swept plains of the Texas Panhandle. Consistently high and dry summer temperatures in the summer and blizzards in the winter make Amarillo a city of extremes. Well, the spring must be lovely then, right? Funny you should ask.

Neighborhoods

The areas of Plemons, Llano and Wolfin are located furthest southwest of the hollowed out downtown. Here, homes preserved by the National Register of Historic Places are occupied by mostly single-family owners. Rental options are occasionally available in private residences and the infrequent apartment building. While prices here are not outlandish when compared to, say, Houston, they are, on average, slightly higher than in neighborhoods to the immediate north. Expect to pay between $500 and $700 for a moderately sized two bedroom.

The Northwest side of town is home to a number of newly constructed rental properties that flank the city's many nationally renowned hospitals. Condo complexes and town house communities with gyms, community centers and pools range in price here from about $600 to $800 for a one to two bedroom. The area is also home to a number of conveniently located shopping centers and restaurants.

Further west, the near-suburban Soncy offers some of the most luxurious rental living around, complete with large, new developments priced up to $2,000 a month for a three bedroom.

The neighborhoods due north of Amarillo Boulevard is where rent is frequently the cheapest. The southern portion of the Old San Jacinto neighborhood is a good compromise for the area, as rent here generally falls between $500 and $600 for a two bedroom.

Home, Home on the Range

You can see how far Amarillo has come from its ranching roots when you consider the wide variety of new construction rentals. Townhouses, large apartment complexes and condos provide the most options in terms of space, amenities and price variance. Because management companies run these properties, metropolitan Amarillo real estate agents infrequently handle rentals. Applicants for apartments in these complexes can expect to pay between $30 and $40 for a credit check and sign leases of three to six months or a year. Privately owned apartments in single-family homes are frequently listed on Internet apartment searches (it's yer lucky day) and brokered directly through the owner.

Git Along Little Doggie

Interstate 40, the wide swatch of highway formerly known as Route 66, bisects the city and provides a fairly painless commute to downtown. Outside of saddling up your Quarter Horse, Amarillo provides little in terms of transportation for residents without automobiles. Amarillo City Transit operates eight bus lines throughout downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods.

As you can see, if you're ready for the rough, tough Wild West, Amarillo has a place to hang your hat in a variety of price ranges. So saddle up and get hunting, we’ll see you on the other side!

November 2017 Amarillo Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2017 Amarillo Rent Report. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Amarillo rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Amarillo over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 9 of the largest 10 cities in Texas for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.0% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Arlington, Fort Worth, and Dallas have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.9%, 5.2%, and 2.6%, respectively).

Amarillo rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

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.
