Methodology:

Apartment List Rent Report data is drawn monthly from the millions of listings on our site. 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom rents are calculated as the median for units available in the specified size and time period. Price changes are calculated using a “same unit” methodology similar to the Case-Shiller “repeat sales” home prices methodology, taking the average price change for units available across both time periods.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List’s Rent Reports cover rental pricing data in major cities, their suburbs, and their neighborhoods. We provide valuable leading indicators of rental price trends, highlight data on top cities, and identify the key facts renters should know. As always, our goal is to provide price transparency to America’s 105 million renters to help them make the best possible decisions in choosing a place to call home.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Houston from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“When it comes to topics that renters typically place a high priority upon, such as availability of jobs, Houston renters’ satisfaction is well above average,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “Interestingly, ratings for Houston vary widely across other topics such as safety, schools, and access to parks.”

Key findings in Houston include the following:

  • Houston renters give their city a B- overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated categories for Houston were its local jobs and career opportunities category, as well as state and local taxes, which both received an A-.
  • Renters here seem to be generally satisfied with the quality of local schools (B), the cost of living in Houston (B+), and access to public transit (B-).
  • Categories like safety, commute time, and access to parks proved less satisfactory for renters, all receiving a rating of C+.
  • Millennial renters seem to be generally more satisfied with life in Houston than renters who are parents, giving the city an A- compared to a C+.
  • Relative to other large, Texan cities, renter satisfaction for Houston lands in the middle. Dallas renters gave their city a C+, while Austin renters gave out a B+.
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.

Renters say:

  • “I love that there is so much to do in Houston! There is always an event you have not heard of or a new place to try for dinner. The weather is awesome!… It's also a very diverse city. I am constantly learning about other cultures and have the opportunity to meet all different types of people.” —Megan S.
  • “Houston's assets are largely temporal as opposed to spatial. There are festivals, seasonal advantages, and a spirit of 'YES' that I love about this city. Also, I have…enjoyed the increased diversification in population, job opportunities, small business ownership, and infrastructure improvements. I don't need to tell anyone, I think lots o' folks have figured it out for themselves!!!” —Anon.
  • “I appreciate the abundance of opportunity for your career in Houston. But I hate the traffic; it takes 2 hours to go to the grocery store and home or to run a regular errand. There aren’t many options for convenient outdoor areas, and everyone has a car.” —Makenzie W.
  • “Houston weather is infamous for sunny one day and dark, cold, and raining the next day.” —Jose Z.
