Tips on Renting in Longview

Before you head out on the Great Longview Apartment Hunt, gather up the information that most of the area’s apartment complexes and property management folks request: proof of employment and income; your last four paycheck stubs -- unless you’re moving to Longview to take a job, then they want a letter of intent from your new employer. They’ll run a credit check and a criminal background check. Most complexes charge for these services, but call it an “application fee,” and it usually runs around $50.

The Scene in Longview

There’s not much to do here as far as entertainment, but locals justify that with the fact that Dallas is a couple hours west and Shreveport is only 60 miles to the east. Shreveport you ask? Good spot to get your gambling on and a quick drive from Longview.

This little slice of East Texas heaven does have lots of outdoor festivals that not only bring out all the locals but outsiders as well: the biker festival on Memorial Day Weekend and the Great Texas Balloon Race in July, with hot air balloons from all over the world competing against one another.

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.

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.
