City GuideStafford
Stafford was once known as Stafford's Point, this city grew around a plantation that William Stafford had to rebuild after a Mexican general burned it down during the Texas Revolution.

Stafford, which now has a population well over 17,500, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, began with very humble beginnings. In fact, there were only 50 people living there in 1884. The population rose and fell, even dropping to 100 in 1914 after having reached a peak of 300, before experiencing a huge boom after 1946. Even with an ever-increasing population, however, the city has managed to set aside over 35 acres of land as municipal parks.

Having trouble with Craigslist Stafford? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Moving to Stafford

You could definitely say that Stafford is a relatively popular city in Texas. After all, it experienced a 14.5% population growth between 2000 and 2012. Stafford must have something going for it if people keep moving there. When looking for apartments or home rentals in Stafford though, you're going to have to do a little prep work to find the best place for you.

When to start looking

You probably need to start looking at places for rent immediately. Over half of the population of Stafford consists of renters, and while this means you'll be in good company it also means that places get snatched up relatively quickly. Everything is bigger in Texas, and this includes the competition for great rental homes. So yeah, enjoy the hunt!

When to make the move

There's really not much to stop you from moving to Stafford at any old time. The city is just far enough from Houston so that it's unlikely to be affected by any big city commotion. If you want comfort though, you might want to avoid the summer months. Average high temperatures can hit the high 90s and the record high was 108 degrees in 2011.

What to bring along

Whether you're seeking out a large apartment or a studio apartment for rent, you're going to need to bring along a few things. First off, bring references from prior landlords. Many may not even ask for these, but having them will definitely land brownie points. Also, it never hurts to bring along a credit report. Though the property crime rate is slightly higher in Stafford than the rest of Texas, a background check would do wonders in helping the landlord agree to your rental offer.

Stafford Neighborhoods

One of the most awesome things about Stafford is the fact that it's relatively quickly growing population has resulted in some great and unique experiences in and around the city. Here are some of the highlights of living in each area.

South Main Street: If you've got serious errands to run, you're in the right place here. The Stafford Municipal Complex is here, but for something that's a little more fun you could check out what's going on at the Stafford Civic Center.

City Center: The City Center has a ton of residential areas and this includes apartment complexes and housing for rent. You'll also be next to the performing arts at Stafford Centre, and you can always feel safe since the Fort Bend ISD Police Department is located here.

FM 1092: This area is also heavily residential, but it's also home to several higher-education organizations. Fortunately, you're also close to Interstate 69, so you can get anywhere you need easily.

West Airport Boulevard: Ever worry about fires in the arid environment of Texas? Well the Sugar Land Fire Administration is in this area, so you should be fine. Oh, and if you do need to evacuate you can always catch a flick at AMC Loews Fountains 18.

Living in Stafford

Alright, so living in an area isn't always just about how close you are to certain services. Sometimes it's about the overall experience. Well, slow your roll, because Stafford stands pretty strong in that area as well.

Experience Some Top-Notch Acting

The Fort Bend Theatre hit its 25th season in 2013, and if you think you're a good actor, prepare to feel humbled. The theater has things going on nearly year round.

Knowing How to have Fun

Some places are content without having festivals. Not Stafford. Enjoy the Houston Hot Sauce Festival around September every year.

Get Out and Go

The renowned Affordable Tours agency is actually located in Stafford, so booking your next vacation is simple. Most of the year though, you'll be happy as can be just hanging in your new home in Stafford.

January 2019 Stafford Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2019 Stafford Rent Report. Stafford rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Stafford rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Stafford rents decline sharply over the past month

Stafford rents have declined 1.0% over the past month, but are up marginally by 0.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Stafford stand at $1,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,220 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September. Stafford's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.3%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

    Rents rising across the Houston Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Stafford, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Houston metro, 6 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Pasadena has the least expensive rents in the Houston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $990; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.9%.
    • Over the past year, Friendswood has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 4.2%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,320, while one-bedrooms go for $1,080.
    • Sugar Land has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Houston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,570; rents fell 0.4% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

    Stafford rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased marginally in Stafford, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Stafford is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Rents increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Texas as a whole logging rent growth of 1.3% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.4% in Austin, 2.0% in San Antonio, and 1.5% in Dallas.
    • Stafford's median two-bedroom rent of $1,220 is slightly above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 0.6% rise in Stafford.
    • While Stafford's rents rose marginally over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.3%), New York (+2.7%), and San Francisco (+2.4%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Stafford than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,090, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Stafford.

    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.
