City Guide
What’s so special about Tyler?

Tyler is a great place to stop and smell the roses, literally. Home of the Texas Rose Festival and featuring more than 400 varieties of that most romantic of woody perennial. The city is dotted with so many parks, country clubs, rec centers, trails, shopping centers, and living quarters.

How would you describe the vibe in the city?

Tyler is a laid-back city where restaurants and strip malls rule the streets. Tyler boasts a zoo, botanical gardens, planetarium, art museum, science center, and one of Texas’s best state parks. If the serenity of suburbia, void of traffic jams and hustle and bustle of the big city is what you crave, you’ll find Tyler rosy as can be.

Are apartments easy to come by?

Yep. Seek and you shall find a variety of readily available apartments. Whether you’re in the market for a cozy 1BR pad in the $600 range or a spacious (1500-plus square feet) townhouse, duplex, or multi-level apartment for closer to $1500, you’ll come across plenty of feasible options. There’s not a ton of competition for rental properties, so take your time and scour the market to find your dream dwellings.

I assume I’ll need my own set of wheels, right?

You assume correct. The Tyler transit city buses can haul you around the downtown area and take you to a few other choice spots, but in order to live and work conveniently, your own vehicle is a must-have.

What will I need to score an apartment?

You’ll just need the basics, including proof of income, banking account information, and a list of previous residences. Most apartment managers also charge a non-refundable fee (usually around $35) to run a background/credit check on you, while others charge cleaning fees or require an initial good faith deposit. Renting specials pop up frequently in Tyler, though, so if you feel like you’re being squeezed, you might want to keep shopping the market to find a better deal.

Anything else I should know?

Just use common sense and read your lease carefully to see if you understand and agree with every last detail. Landlords have different rules regarding things like roommates, pets, visitors, barbecue pits on your patio, and overnight guests, so take the time to study your contract in-depth. When it’s time to move in, bring an objective third party along to give your new place a good inspection. Make sure your appliances function, your pipes are sound, your toilets flush, and your walls, ceilings, and floors are blemish-free. If something isn’t up to par, notify management immediately, as landlords are generally quickest to resolve issues before you’ve officially settled in.

And now you’re all set for apartment life deep in the heart of Texas! So welcome to Tyler, and happy hunting!

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.


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.
