As manufacturing industries pulled out of Shelby in the latter half of the 20th century, the city underwent a significant decline. Now high unemployment rates, population decline, and low morale have caused a higher instance of both property and violent crimes. However, Neighborhood Watch programs and Project Safe Neighborhood have increased community involvement while lowering crime rates in specific areas. At the very least, you’ll be sure to find tons of cheap apartments, as well as a strong community spirit.

You’ll find the largest and most varied amount of apartments for rent in the eastern and southeastern portions of Shelby, along East Marion Street. Living in this area will also put you in close proximity to the shops of the Cleveland Mall. Here, there are a handful of apartment buildings that offer everything from studio apartments to three bedrooms. Rentals within planned communities frequently offer amenities such as a gym, swimming pool, and clubhouse. You can also find a few large houses for rent in this area. Two bedroom rental properties here generally range from $550 - $750.

The southwestern portion of Shelby also has a number of great houses for rent and the occasional apartment rental. Most Shelby residents consider the area between Shelby and nearby Boiling Springs quite safe and desirable. The far southwestern portion of town, past the regional airport, has a few nice apartments for rent. Two bedroom rental properties here generally range from $600 - $800.

You’ll see some other fine rentals scattered throughout Shelby’s many diverse neighborhoods. In general, avoid the city center and the urban areas directly surrounding it. These neighborhoods are home to most of Shelby’s higher-than-average crime rates. The farther north you go from the city center, the more rural neighborhoods will feel. So, if you’re looking for a sweet country rental, check in the safe, sparsely populated area to the north of town.

Pet friendly apartments in Shelby are hit or miss. While some privately rented houses and small apartment complexes welcome four-legged friends, many of the town’s large developments have strict anti-pet policies. Allow plenty of time to secure yourself a cat or dog friendly apartment rental in Shelby.

Welcome to Shelby! Enjoy all that this small North Carolina town has to offer!
