Do the Duplex

The real question of the Killeen housing market is this: are you going to live in a duplex or a private rental? Duplexes, particularly those located around Clear Creek on the west side of town, are newer constructions with more amenities than the single-family homes and apartments in the area. Private rentals, however, tend to be slightly more affordable than duplexes, and also tend to be less heavily regulated.

December 2020 Killeen Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2020 Killeen Rent Report. Killeen rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Killeen rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Killeen rents increased significantly over the past month

Killeen rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and are up sharply by 6.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Killeen stand at $740 for a one-bedroom apartment and $940 for a two-bedroom. This is the tenth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Killeen's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -2.0%, as well as the national average of -1.3%.

    Rents falling across cities in Texas

    While rent prices have increased in Killeen over the past year, other cities across the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have fallen in 1 of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Texas. 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.

    • Looking throughout the state, Plano is the most expensive of all Texas' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,519; of the 10 largest Texas cities that we have data for, 6 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Austin experiencing the fastest decline (-5.6%).
    • Arlington, El Paso, and Lubbock have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (5.8%, 3.9%, and 1.5%, respectively).

    Killeen rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased sharply in Killeen, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Killeen is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Killeen's median two-bedroom rent of $940 is below the national average of $1,095. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 6.8% rise in Killeen.
    • While Killeen's rents rose sharply over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+3.9%) and Detroit (+2.9%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Killeen than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,377, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Killeen.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S.

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

      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.

      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.
