But instead of looking strictly at the numbers, this time, we thought we might check out the words.
Looking at the thousands of listings on Apartment Guide, we discovered the most popular and unique apartment community names.
What are some of the most common apartment names?
Here’s a quick look at some of the most common words found in apartment names, along with the number of times they appear in Apartment Guide listings.
In how many names?
The most popular words…
“Park” and “Village” appear to be the most popular descriptions in apartment community names. The word “park” occurs in about 1,400 names, with “village” close behind at around 1,200.
As you travel around in your community, do you see these words often in apartment names? You may live in a “Park” or “Village,” yourself!
A quirky analysis…
From our list of apartment names, we discovered that 66,633 words are used, but only 8,286 of those words are unique.
The average apartment community name is around 3 words long.
4,845 different words are used only once over all the names in our registry.
More than twice the properties who use the word, spell ‘Pointe’ with an ‘e’ at the end:
- Point = 205
- Pointe = 485
To the point, that extra ‘e’ must be worth something!
In a “sign” of the times, perhaps, 21 properties contain the ‘@’ symbol in their names.
What’s the most unique name?
Data aside, my vote for most unique and interesting name choice is The Confluence at Harvest Hills, an apartment community in Williston, ND.
“Confluence” means a coming together, or two things occurring at the same time. When resident meets apartment, what a lovely way to describe a home, framed in a meaningful name.
Williston, ND, has the highest average entry-level rental price in the country. But the highest-renting apartment units currently listing on Apartment Guide are located at 2 Cooper Square in New York City. For example, with four bedrooms, five bathrooms and city views, floor plan 13-BC lists for $28,000 a month.
Apartment Guide checked active apartment listings for community names. Note that we ignored the word “apartment” itself because use of the word varies in names enough to be generic.
