If you are looking for an apartment, what you pay will largely depend on the number of bedrooms. Two-bedroom apartments average about $800. The monthly rent will go up or down depending on the apartment’s size. Many apartment complexes typically include a swimming pool, gym, Internet, cable, washer and dryer, and a basketball court. One thing to note, however, is there aren’t as many apartments for rent as there are houses, so you may want to begin your search early to secure a place you like. Furthermore, a lot of apartments only allow cats or small dogs. If you have a large four-legged friend, make sure you ask about weight and breed restrictions.
In terms of houses for rent, you’ll find a decent number of options, as well. Homes in Charleston tend to be spacious and for about $1,100 you can rent a three-bedroom house with 1600 or 1700 square feet. You will likely get air conditioning, hardwood floors, a patio, storage space, a garage and possibly a basement. If that doesn’t sell you, backyards usually come standard. Four-bedrooms go for about $1,400 to $1,500 and will have similar amenities. Like with apartments, it’s not difficult to find furnished houses for rent. However, they typically require a one to two-year lease. Make sure you’re certain about your living arrangement before you sign that long lease.
No matter where you end up, we’re sure you’ll find a happening pad. Charleston’s a great place to live as a renter — good luck with your housing search and enjoy the move!
