City Guide
Lancaster

While you won’t find the volume in Lancaster that you do in Dallas, there are some inexpensive apartments here. Try Bel Air Place on Dewberry Boulevard. They have small 1-bedroom apartments that start at $499 a month.

Another place with reasonable apartments for rent in Lancaster that you might want to check out is Pleasant Creek Corners Apartments. Their one-bedroom apartments start at $548 a month, and they get mostly kudos from their tenants.

Stepping up in price will put you into a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom townhome at Riverbend Apartments for $755. This complex offers pet-friendly apartments (with breed and weight restrictions) with a $100 non-refundable deposit. Since the security deposit is very low – only $250 – that pet fee shouldn’t put too big a dent in the pocketbook.

If you have a small dog, no more than 20 pounds in weight, it is welcome at the dog-friendly Portofino Apartments on North Bluegrove Rd. They, too, have a $100 non-refundable pet fee and the rent there, for a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment, starts at $509.

If you have a large dog you’ll probably want to look at rental homes in Lancaster. A 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom house that allows pets will run you $1,495, but there will most likely be a nice yard for the pooch to play and poop in.

You will find it ultra challenging to find a studio apartment for rent in Lancaster. So challenging, in fact, that we can’t even tell you where to begin looking.

Lucky you if it’s a 2-bedroom apartment for rent in Lancaster that you seek. Pleasant Creek Apartments not only has them, they offer move-in incentives, so be sure to ask for the current special when you go to look at the apartments. They’re located on West Pleasant Run Avenue.

Many suburbs around the country don’t offer furnished apartments for rent because there are typically so many of them in the larger city nearby. Not so in Lancaster. Check out the furnished apartments at Hershey Heritage Village. This place has a massive swimming pool and it’s located close to downtown Lancaster. Bonus: they offer short-term rentals.

While it may not have the number of apartments for rent that its big brother to the north has, Lancaster offers lower rents and a nice break from the big city craziness in Dallas. Welcome home!

January 2018 Lancaster Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2018 Lancaster Rent Report. Lancaster rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Lancaster rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Lancaster rents increased significantly over the past month

Lancaster rents have increased 0.5% over the past month, and are up significantly by 5.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Lancaster stand at $880 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,090 for a two-bedroom. This is the fourth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in August. Lancaster's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.5%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across the Dallas Metro

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

  • Arlington has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 6.6%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,190, while one-bedrooms go for $960.
  • Over the past month, Grand Prairie has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 0.7%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,210, while one-bedrooms go for $980.

  • Dallas proper has the least expensive rents in the Dallas metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,100; rents went down 0.3% over the past month but rose 2.2% over the past year.

Lancaster rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased significantly in Lancaster, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Lancaster 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 2.5% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.5% in Houston, 1.6% in San Antonio, and 0.1% in Austin.
  • Lancaster's median two-bedroom rent of $1,090 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 5.7% rise in Lancaster.
  • While Lancaster's rents rose significantly over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including DC (-0.3%) and Nashville (-0.1%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Lancaster than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,010, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Lancaster.

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.
