City GuideChester
Despite the area having the lowest crime rate in the Richmond metropolitan area, residents still sleep with one eye open, since the ghosts of civil war battles and the “Lady in Red” ghost of Wrexham Hall are rumored to live nearby.

Chester is a bedroom community of Richmond that puts up a good fight against being immersed in the area’s suburban sprawl. It originally was only a train station at the midpoint of the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad and the site of the little-known Battle of Chester Station near the end of the Civil War. Over the next century, the farms and forests surrounding the station gave way to the residential neighborhoods of this small commuter town, located about 15 miles south of downtown Richmond. Chester may be the place for you if you're looking for new apartments with ample amenities, better-than-average schools, and easy access to chain stores and golf courses, 

Tips for Renting in Chester

Most businesses and residential neighborhoods in Chester have been built within the last few decades, although they are often interspersed with historical houses and buildings, many of which are reportedly haunted. Wrexham Hall, for example, was built in the late 1700s by Captain Archibald Walthall, and the ghost of his daughter Susannah continues to haunt the building’s grounds, or so they say. But have no fear; you need not worry about renting a haunted apartment, because most rental units in Chester are fairly new and assumedly ghost-free. With Chester’s somewhat low vacancy rate of 4.4 percent, however, you will need to be somewhat strategic in finding the perfect home or apartment to rent. Plan to begin looking for apartments at least 2 months prior to moving from your current home.   

How Much will it Cost?

The median gross rent in Chester is only slightly higher than that of Richmond’s, but expect to pay a bit more to live near the Village Green, Chester’s new town center. In general, the rent for one and two-bedroom units in Chester ranges depending on the age and amenities offered by the apartment complex. Similarly, monthly rent for three and four-bedroom units average a little bit higher. Note that few if any properties offer studio apartments.

Neighborhoods

Village Green: The town strives to maintain a community-oriented village feel with the recent construction of the stylish Village Green in “downtown” Chester. The Village Green includes a fairly new library, shops, a few restaurants, condos, apartments and single-family homes. $$$

Areas outside of downtown Chester: Other neighborhoods generally are surrounded by shopping centers and highways, although apartment complexes often are located on beautiful grounds with ponds and forested areas nearby. Common amenities of these properties include pools, gyms, tennis courts and pet-friendly management. Woof woof. Meow. $$

August 2020 Chester Rent Report

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

Chester rents increase sharply over the past month

Chester rents have increased 1.1% over the past month, and have increased sharply by 8.9% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Chester stand at $1,241 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,432 for a two-bedroom. This is the tenth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September of last year. Chester's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -0.5%, as well as the national average of 0.2%.

    Rents rising across cities in Virginia

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Chester, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Virginia, 7 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of -0.5% 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, Arlington is the most expensive of all Virginia's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,089; of the 10 largest cities in Virginia that we have data for, Arlington and Alexandria, where two-bedrooms go for $2,089 and $1,858, are the only two major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-2.3% and -1.6%).
    • Portsmouth, Roanoke, and Virginia Beach have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.1%, 1.9%, and 1.8%, respectively).

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Chester

    As rents have increased sharply in Chester, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Chester is less affordable for renters.

    • Chester's median two-bedroom rent of $1,432 is above the national average of $1,193. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While Chester's rents rose sharply over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.5%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Chester than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $902, where Chester is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

    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.
