City Guide
Texas City

Welcome to Texas City! Located on Galveston Bay about an hour outside of Houston, this small city is an industrial hub with plenty in the way of apartment rentals. So, let’s get looking!

Texas City has a strong economy depending largely on shipping in the port and the booming petrochemical industry. It’s also located close to both Houston and Galveston, so you can find a more diverse array of jobs, entertainment, dining and restaurants close by. Like many east Texas cities, residents love outdoor recreation, so you’ll enjoy plenty of fishing and hunting at many of the area’s lakes and nature preserves. Though it’s located fairly close to Houston, the longer distance has put it outside of much of the city’s sprawl. While this means that you may not be as close to chain shopping centers, malls and dining, it does give you more in terms of varied entertainment and well-preserved nature.

Many of Texas City’s most desirable apartment rentals are located on the north portion of the bay, close to the Moses Lake Nature Preserve. Here you’ll find developments in rental homes and condominiums with lovely views of the nicer, less industrially developed portions of Galveston Bay. Two bedrooms here generally range from $700-$900 a month.

Away from the Bay you’ll find smatterings of apartment rentals in newer and older developments just west of the city center. The area around Emmett F. Lowry Expressway has a number of apartments for rent, frequently in buildings with clubhouses, gyms and swimming pools. These buildings tend to offer rentals ranging from $500-$700 per month.

Predictably, there will be several rentals of studio apartments, efficiencies and shares further out west near the College of the Mainland. Two bedrooms here range from $500-$700.

As an outdoorsy town, Texas City rentals are pretty pet friendly. Some apartments may have restrictions on the size or number of pets, or require an additional deposit, but overall you shouldn’t have too much trouble securing a home for your four-legged friends.

You’ll be sure to enjoy your new home in the Lone Star State. Happy hunting!

December 2018 Texas City Rent Report

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

Texas City rents decline sharply over the past month

Texas City rents have declined 0.6% over the past month, and have decreased slightly by 0.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Texas City stand at $870 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,070 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September. Texas City's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.4%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rent trends vary across the Houston Metro

While rent prices have decreased in Texas City over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing varying rent trends. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Houston metro, half have seen increases, while the other half have been decreasing. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Baytown has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.5%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,060, while one-bedrooms go for $860.
  • Over the past year, Galveston has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.4%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,090, while one-bedrooms go for $890.
  • Sugar Land has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Houston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,570; rents went down 0.4% over the past month and 0.7% over the past year.
  • Pasadena has the least expensive rents in the Houston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $980; rents fell 0.7% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

Texas City rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have fallen slightly in Texas City, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Texas City is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Other cities across the state have seen rents moderately increase, with Texas as a whole logging rent growth of 1.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.1% in Austin, 1.9% in San Antonio, and 1.1% in Dallas.
  • Texas City's median two-bedroom rent of $1,070 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 0.1% decline in Texas City.
  • While rents in Texas City fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.2%), New York (+2.3%), and San Francisco (+1.8%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Texas City than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Texas City.

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.
