Home Hunting: What to Expect

With a vacancy rate of 5.97% and a large percentage of owner-occupied real estate in this town, looking for an apartment is not much of a challenge. Looking for your dream home, however, is another matter. Here are some questions to ask yourself to help you be a savvy home-hunter.

What type of rental property?

Apex has a diverse mix of real estate properties, though the vast majority are single-family home detached types. But if your tastes lean towards row houses or high-rise apartment buildings or mobile homes, there’s a good number of those in the mix as well.

How long is the commute?

Have kids? Work in an office? It's important to establish how far a property from workplaces etc. Unless you really love sitting in traffic (hey, some people really dig local radio stations and alone time), you have to consider the distance of the neighborhood to key places.

How much will it cost?

Rental cost in this town varies. If youre willing to settle in the outskirts, you can get a good home for $550. But if youre going for exclusive neighborhoods, be prepared to pay no less than a grand for an apartment; and much more than that if you’re looking for apartments with paid utilities.

What to prepare?

Aside from your advance rent and deposit fee, you’d have to get the usual documents ready to start the rental application credit history, reference from previous landlord, and proof of income or employment verification.

Apex Neighborhoods

Neighborhoods in Apex can vary from posh to modest and from urban to rural. Heres an overview of the different communities.

Winecott Dr/Cregler Dr.: Managers, executives and professionals prefer to settle in this neighborhood. With its well-maintained landscape, modern real estate buildingsand a good diversity of people from varying cultures, this residential area is picture perfect.

Zeno Rd/U.S Route 64: Do you drive a luxury car? Are you just so over Europe vacations? Then you have the same lifestyle as people in this community. You’ll feel right at home here.

Silky Dogwood Trl/White Dogwood Rd: If you like the look and ambience of a neighborhood with modern homes and recently built city apartments, better start your search in this neighborhood. The homes are so new here you can almost smell the scent of fresh paint. The downside? With a 0.9% vacancy rate, you’re in for a lot of competition.$$$$

Town Center: College students dominate this place. You’ll see (and hear) them just about anywhere. It's easy to see why: this neighborhoods walkability as well as the rental rate makes it very attractive to undergrads.

Route 64/Laura Duncan Rd: If you want to cut short the time you spend on hunting for an apartment to rent, start your search in this neighborhood. With an 8.5% vacancy rate, this area has diverse housing options, from single-family homes to high-rise apartment complexes. And the rates not bad, either.

Moncure: If you fancy open spaces, no traffic, and rural, and less populated areas, this neighborhood is the perfect choice. Most residents still make most of their living by working on their farms, so if you dream of milking cows in the morning and ringing a dinner bell at night, Moncure is for you.

Feltonville: Housing options in this area include small to medium-sized single family homes as well as apartment complexes. With a 12% vacancy rate, it wouldn’t be too long before you found an excellent furnished apartment that suits your tastes.

Lake Wheeler Rd/Ten Ten Rd: This is a quiet neighborhood with housing options including established homes built within the 1970-1999 time period. And if living in a mobile home is something that you’re considering, this area offers that option as well.

Apex Living

Apex is one town in North Carolina where you can enjoy the peaceful and quiet life, and yet its just 20 minutes away from downtown Raleigh. People go about their business day in and day out without much thought toward ther drama of a city lifestyle. The town's main excitement comes from Peak Fest, an annual festival with arts, crafts, car shows, and more, as well as "First Fridays," which are monthly arts and cultural events that get the townsfolk out on the streets (in the wholesome way). So if you value education and small-town values and don’t care for much of the noise of the city, you’re in good company here.

December 2018 Apex Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 Apex Rent Report. Apex rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Apex rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Apex rents increased significantly over the past month

Apex rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and are up moderately by 3.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Apex stand at $1,120 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,300 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. Apex's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.6%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across cities in North Carolina

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Apex, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in North Carolina, all of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.6% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the state, Cary is the most expensive of all North Carolina's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,250; of the 10 largest North Carolina cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Wilmington experiencing the fastest growth (+5.2%).
  • High Point, Asheville, and Cary have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.0%, 3.0%, and 2.9%, respectively).

Apex rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased moderately in Apex, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Apex is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Apex's median two-bedroom rent of $1,300 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 3.3% rise in Apex.
  • While Apex's rents rose moderately over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 0.4%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Apex than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than twice the price in Apex.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
