City Guide
Lubbock
Lubbock or Leave It

Whether you're relocating to Lubbock to escape the rat race, to take advantage of the (relatively) low unemployment rate or you just happen to crave wind in your hair and dust in your teeth, this town offers a Texas-sized array of rentals to suit nearly any budget and lifestyle. From high-density collegiate “ant farms” to Downtown's chic (Yeah, we said it – chic) warehouse loft conversions to, well, dirt-yard duplexes – you name it, Lubbock's got it. Sure, the town itself may be the brunt of many a joke, but look on the bright side: where else can you watch your dog run away for three days?

Lubbock: If You Lived There (anywhere there), You'd Be Home By Now

There's one thing everyone agrees on, and that's the fact that Lubbock has virtually no traffic. No matter what neighborhood you end up in, you can bet on having an easy commute. No car? No problem; Lubbock Transit Authority's Citibus routes criss-cross the city and NiteRide provides after-hours door to door service for registered users for way less than the price of a cab. That's right, no more court mandated anger management classes for you, road-rager! Unburdened by traffic and transportation considerations, you are now free to focus on nabbing that dream home – whatever part of town it happens to be in.

It's Always Hunting Season in Lubbock

Ever lived in a city where open rentals were so elusive that any and all were met with competitors turning out in droves – checkbooks and perfect credit ratings in hand, ready to promise first-born children in exchange for even the most humble abode? Calma, tigre – that's all in the past. Lubbock vacancy rates are well above the national average – that means that rentals in every price range are readily available – even in the more sought-after areas. In fact, there's such an array- the best way to score the perfect rental is to find the neighborhood which best suits your needs in terms of entertainment and culture and then zero in on any available units.

Pick Your 'Hood, Ya'll

Lubbock streets run in an orderly grid, and the city is often divided by direction, ie: southwest, north, etc. Once you've zoomed in on a quadrant, you can begin exploring the myriad of neighborhoods located within, or you may want to begin your search in one of these three popular areas:

Depot District The Depot District is the cultural hub of Lubbock and of late, developers have been renovating existing vacant downtown commercial space into snazzy, industrial “Manhattan-style” lofts. Just like SoHo! Minus the Olsen Twins! And way less expensive!

Heart of Lubbock/Central Lubbock: Most student-friendly (read: noisy) apartment buildings and duplexes are found in this area – which makes it one to avoid. Unless you're really into late-night beer pong, that is.

Tech Terrace: Just outside of the Texas Tech hot zone, Tech Terrace's tree-lined streets and charming single-family homes draw a mixed bag of young families and old-timers, all working together to keep rowdy students in check.

Lubbock – Because Texas A&M Sucks

Admittedly, Lubbock is no Dallas. It's pretty far off the beaten track and it can be a tad dusty (locals say that once, when the wind stopped blowing, their chickens all fell over) but it's friendly, easy to get around in and most importantly – affordable. Looking to put down roots in a classic West Texas town? Lubbock will make you happy as a gopher in soft dirt.

August 2017 Lubbock Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2017 Lubbock Rent Report. Lubbock rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Lubbock rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Lubbock rents held steady over the past month

Lubbock rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they have increased slightly by 1.9% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Lubbock stand at $680 for a one-bedroom apartment and $840 for a two-bedroom. Lubbock's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.4%, but trails the national average of 2.9%.

Rents rising across cities in Texas

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Lubbock, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Texas, 8 of them have seen prices rise. Texas as a whole has logged a 1.4% year-over-year growth. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the rest of the state, Plano is the most expensive of all Texas' major cities outside the Lubbock metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,420; of the 10 largest cities in Texas that we have data for, Houston and Corpus Christi, where two-bedrooms go for $990 and $1,020, are the two other major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-2.6% and -1.3%).
  • Arlington, Fort Worth, and Garland have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (9.2%, 5.2%, and 4.2%, respectively).

Lubbock rents more affordable than many other large cities nationwide

Rent growth in Lubbock has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases, while in a few cases, rents have actually declined. Lubbock is still more affordable than most similar cities across the country.

  • Lubbock's median two-bedroom rent of $840 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.9% over the past year.
  • While rents in Lubbock remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Seattle (+5.6%), Phoenix (+5.0%), Denver (+2.7%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,710, $1,020, and $1,350 respectively.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Lubbock than most comparable cities. Comparably, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,060, which is more than three-and-a-half times the price in Lubbock.

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.
