City Guide

Tomball
Not a sport: Tomball is named after its founder, Thomas Ball. (Tom Ball, get it?) This little town was originally called Peck, but it was renamed when Congressman Thomas Henry Ball basically did a whole bunch of awesome stuff in developing the Port of Houston.
Not a sport: Tomball is named after its founder, Thomas Ball. (Tom Ball, get it?) This little town was originally called Peck, but it was renamed when Congressman Thomas Henry Ball basically did a whole bunch of awesome stuff in developing the Port of Houston.

Tomball is part of the metropolitan Houston area, about 35 miles northwest of the city of Houston. Most people think of dry deserts and tumbleweeds when they think about Texas, but they must have never seen Tomball! The northern suburbs of Houston, including Tomball, are near the piney woods region of east Texas and are lush and green, with lots of trees everywhere. Houston is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., but because it's Texas, there's a lot of sprawl. A lot of people here work in the city of Houston but would rather live in a nice, quiet suburb -- like Tomball.

Moving to Tomball

Tomball is growing like crazy! The population doubled between the 1990 Census and the 2010 Census. It's still a small town, relatively speaking -- only 10,964 people lived here as of 2010. But those people are packed into just 11.9 square miles, which gives you some idea of how many people are flocking to this popular area. Once they extended Highway 249 to Tomball and beyond, modern settlers fleeing the city had a clear route to a great new place to live. This is a hot place to be, at least by standards of the suburbs.

If you want to find a one-bedroom apartment in Tomball, you should have no trouble at all. You can find apartment complexes right in the middle of town, along Tomball Parkway or Baker Drive. But you don't have to worry that being close to town means you'll be kept awake all night. Even though you have all the stores and restaurants you need access to, this little town shuts down for the night pretty early. Ahh, peace and quiet!

Just as with any other location, you need the usual qualifications before you move here. Make sure you have a current job that pays at around three times the monthly rent, an accurate credit report and previous landlords that can vouch for the fact that you're not going to destroy the place.

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.
