A Sneak Peek at the “Tall City”

“Pump it up!:” It should come as no surprise in a town whose infrastructure revolves around the oil business that it’s absolutely imperative to have your own set of wheels. 98 percent of residents drive their own cars to work, while the city’s shopping, dining, and entertainment options are so spread out that it’s virtually impossible to survive in the city without a vehicle. Fortunately, gridlock is minimal and parking is ample throughout the city, even in the bustling downtown district.

Tips for Texas Tenants

You’ve probably heard how most cities across America face massive housing surpluses, giving buyers and leasers alike a ton of wiggle room and leverage when seeking out their humble abodes. Not so in Midland, which continues to boom. Midland is a rare seller’s market, and the few houses that occasionally pop up for rent are never on the market for more than a few days before multiple hopeful leasers have submitted applications.

Apartments, fortunately, are much easier to come by, and even high-quality, multi-BR units are typically available in the $600-$900 range. Don’t rush into a unit unless you’re sure it’s right for you, but we wouldn’t recommend holding out on a good deal for too long, either.

As always, read your lease carefully and give your new place a thorough inspection before settling in. Check the sinks and faucets for leaks, make sure the toilets flush, your water pressure and temperate is adequate, your appliances function properly, and your walls, ceilings, and floors are free of conspicuous blemishes.

Got it? Good! So welcome to Midland, and happy hunting!

Rent Report
Midland

September 2020 Midland Rent Report

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

Midland rents increase sharply over the past month

Midland rents have increased 1.6% over the past month, but are down sharply by 7.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Midland stand at $1,142 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,435 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in May. Midland's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.1%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents falling across cities in Texas

    Throughout the past year, rent decreases have been occurring not just in the city of Midland, but across many other cities in the state. Rents have dropped in 1 of the largest 10 cities in Texas for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of -0.1% 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 $1,457; of the 10 largest Texas cities that we have data for, 6 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Laredo experiencing the fastest decline (-1.2%).
    • El Paso, Arlington, and Corpus Christi have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.0%, 2.5%, and 0.8%, respectively).

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Midland

    As rents have fallen sharply in Midland, large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Midland is less affordable for renters.

    • Midland's median two-bedroom rent of $1,435 is above the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While rents in Midland fell sharply over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Midland than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $902, where Midland is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

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

    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.

      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.
