Red For Rent Real Estate Sign in Front House.

Listen, I know this title may have thrown you off because it certainly shocked me too. Two North Carolina cities are really considered some of the best for renters for 2022. Just doesn’t seem real when we think about the cost of living today and the price of some of these apartment complexes around us. But, it is true. Charlotte sadly was not one of the cities, but you could have probably guessed that one. gathered data to determine the best and worst cities for renters in 2022 and the results were a bit shocking. Well, some were shocking while cities that made the worse list completely made sense to me.

To determine which cities were ranked where they analyzed various data on apartment affordability and apartment amenity data. Factors such as the cheapest/most expensive rent, highest/lowest cost burden, and hikes/drops in rent were all taken into consideration. Not only did North Carolina make the list of the top 5 best cities for renters, but two cities in North Carolina were considered the best. That’s right, TWO!

The top 5 best cities for renters in 2022 include:

  • Lincoln, Nebraska
  • Omaha, Nebraska
  • Virginia Beach, Virginia
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Durham, North Carolina

Yes, Raleigh and Durham were North Carolina’s shining stars when it comes to being the most renter friendly. They both averaged out with a cheaper renting price for a pretty good space compared to some of the other cities in North Carolina. Both cities also have a pretty low percentage of household income being spent on rent which is truly a blessing. Now, lucky for us no Carolina city made the list for the worst cities for renters but it is quite interesting.

The top 5 worse cities for renters are:

  • New York, New York
  • Miami, Florida
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • San Jose, California
