City Guide
Conroe
Living the Life in Conroe

The attraction of Conroe, Texas, is not so much what you find within the city limits as what sits around them. Conroe is close to major bodies of water, metropolitan cities and lot of natural forest. Maybe that is why the town experienced a population surge over the last decade and a half. Conroe is the county seat of Montgomery County and located just 40 miles outside of Houston. It is an hour away from the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Conroe itself is a medium-sized city with an independent school district and its own regional medical center. It is near the Lone Star College-Montgomery Campus and LSC University Center, as well.

Conroe offers a diverse range of real estate; anything from single-unit homes to condos for rent to apartments. The area has an above average rate of vacancy, meaning it shouldn't be too much of a challenge to find a rental property in Conroe that suits your needs in a short time. You might want to start looking two to three months in advance of your move. This will allow you to see a number of different property options before making a choice.

Rental proprietors are likely to be security conscious, requesting both deposits and advance rent payments. You can expect a full background check and employment verification, as well. When planning your relocation timeline, factor in the screening process necessary to do the identify verification.

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.
