City GuideGalveston
Howdy, Lone Star leasers, and welcome to your Galveston apartment hunting HQ! Located on the picturesque Texas Gulf Coast just 45 miles southeast of Houston, Galveston Island boasts an unbeatable tropical climate and a wide range of apartments to meet the needs of all its residents. Interested in joining the nearly 50,000 proud islanders who call Galveston home? Uh … yeah! Luckily, you’ve come to the right place, because we have the answers to all the questions that have surely been driving y...
I’m confused. Are Galveston and Galveston Island the same place?

Not exactly, but for all practical purposes, yes (Now you’re really confused, aren’t you?). Technically, Galveston Island consists of two cities, Galveston and Jamaica Beach, but since all but about a thousand people on the island live in Galveston City, we’ll just assume you’re in the market for a rental in that part of town. Got it? Sort of? Good enough.

What’s the atmosphere in Galveston?

Galveston serves up a plethora of attractions, including miles of pristine beachfronts, a water park, numerous historical museums and neighborhoods, and the world-renowned Moody Gardens.

What are the neighborhoods?

The downtown area, including the Strand, features a variety of renovated 19th century and brand-new high rises, lofts, and condos and also puts tenants within walking distance of countless pubs, clubs, eateries, boutiques, art galleries, shops, and office buildings. Other popular areas include the storied San Jacinto and the Kempner Park neighborhood. No two areas are exactly alike, but rest assured they all have an ample number of rentals just waiting for renters like you to sweep them up.

Will I need a car to get around the island?

Obviously, the easiest way to navigate the streets of Galveston is with your own set of wheels, but many apartment dwellers rely on nothing but their own two feet to get around. The most bustling parts of town – the Strand, the historic downtown district, and the Seawall Blvd. area – are extremely walker-friendly and are located in close proximity to a variety of apartments. The Island Transit city buses run a limited number of routes as well, but keep in mind that the further you get from the inner core, the less likely you are to be able to rely on public transit.

Is there anything special I need to know about renting in Galveston?

As long as you’re looking to rent an apartment and not a house (and no, we’re not just saying this because we’re apartment geeks!), your renting adventures will be mostly smooth sailing. Rental houses, unfortunately, are often difficult to score in the city. Apartments, by contrast, are easier to come by. Waiting lists are rare, and landlords run move-in specials frequently, so as long as you have a decent renting/credit history (or a respectable co-signer) and a regular source of income, you’ll have your choice of apartments in paradise. The only exceptions are the renovated Victorian lofts downtown, which are in high demand and are often at full capacity.

Finally, don’t assume your apartment is in tip-top shape when your landlord hands you the keys. Give your new place the white glove treatment and check over everything carefully before settling in. Best of luck, ladies and gents, and welcome to Galveston!

August 2019 Galveston Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Galveston Rent Report. Galveston rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Galveston rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Galveston rents increase sharply over the past month

Galveston rents have increased 1.6% over the past month, and have increased slightly by 1.0% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Galveston stand at $902 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,104 for a two-bedroom. Galveston's year-over-year rent growth lags the state and national averages, which both stand at 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the Houston Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Galveston, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Houston metro, 7 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Sugar Land has seen rents fall by 1.3% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro. It's also the most expensive city in the Houston metro with a two-bedroom median of $1,560.
    • Conroe has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 2.8%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,103, while one-bedrooms go for $901.
    • Pasadena has the least expensive rents in the Houston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,009; rents increased 0.2% over the past month and 1.7% over the past year.

    Galveston rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased marginally in Galveston, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Galveston is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with Texas as a whole logging rent growth of 1.6% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.3% in Austin, 2.5% in San Antonio, and 2.1% in Dallas.
    • Galveston's median two-bedroom rent of $1,104 is below the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 1.0% increase in Galveston.
    • While Galveston's rents rose marginally over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), New York (+1.8%), and DC (+1.7%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Galveston than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,126, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Galveston.

    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.
