Living in Bowie, MD

Renters searching for a high quality of life within commuting distance of Washington, D.C. should put apartments for rent in Bowie, MD, on their list. Located approximately 35 minutes by car from the United States’ capital city and less than 30 minutes from Annapolis, MD, this small community is considered one of the best places to live in Maryland. Featuring a rich history, diverse community, and a plethora of family-friendly activities to enjoy during all four seasons, Bowie offers renters a tight-knit community with easy access to big-city amenities and job markets. Plus, its lush green spaces and safe environment make it a favorite destination for renters with families and professionals. However, renters who are considering relocating to Bowie should keep in mind that this affluent small town is located in one of the most expensive areas of the country. As such, the cost of living may be higher than what renters are used to if they’re from another part of the nation or even from elsewhere in Maryland.

Renting in Bowie, MD

Renters are few and far between in this sparse, suburban community, and property owners constitute the vast majority of Bowie’s residents. To that end, the housing pool primarily consists of detached, single-family homes in residential neighborhoods, although you may also find an apartment for rent in a low-rise multifamily building. Notably, renters should expect to experience some sticker shock when moving to Bowie as the average rent is on par with rents for the greater Washington, D.C.-Arlington-Alexandria metropolitan area and well above the national and state averages. Additionally, rental laws in Maryland cap the maximum amount for a security deposit for a rental at the equivalent of two months’ rent. Landlords must also return the security deposit within 45 days of renters moving out.
