History of the Queen City

Charlotte has a very royal history. It's most common nickname is the Queen City because Charlotte was named in honor of a German princess, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Princess Charlotte became the Queen Consort of Great Britain and Ireland in 1761, just seven years before Charlotte was incorporated as a town.

A second nickname derives from the American Revolutionary War. A British commander, General Charles Cornwallis, temporarily occupied the city but was driven out by outraged Charlotte residents. Cornwallis wrote that Charlotte was "a hornet's nest of rebellion", leading to the nickname The Hornet's Nest.

What Is A Studio Apartment?

An apartment is classed as a studio if the living and sleeping areas are in one combined space or, in other words, the sleeping and living area are in one room. Most often, the bathroom is in a different room entirely. The layout of the kitchen in a studio apartment varies tremendously. Unique studio apartment floor plans are available in all Charlotte neighborhoods.

January 2020 Charlotte Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2020 Charlotte Rent Report. Charlotte rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Charlotte rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Charlotte rent trends were flat over the past month

Charlotte rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they have increased moderately by 2.6% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Charlotte stand at $989 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,154 for a two-bedroom. Charlotte's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.4%, as well as the national average of 1.4%.

    Rents rising across cities in North Carolina

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Charlotte, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in North Carolina, 9 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.4% 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 $1,305; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Wilmington, where a two-bedroom goes for $938, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.8%).
    • Cary, Greenville, and Durham have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.8%, 3.1%, and 3.0%, respectively).

    Charlotte rents more affordable than many comparable cities nationwide

    As rents have increased moderately in Charlotte, a few similar cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Charlotte is still more affordable than most other large cities across the country.

    • Charlotte's median two-bedroom rent of $1,154 is slightly below the national average of $1,192. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 2.6% increase in Charlotte.
    • While Charlotte's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.8%), Dallas (+2.2%), and Seattle (+1.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Charlotte than most comparable cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,088, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Charlotte.

    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.
