Charlotte City Guide

As one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, Charlotte attracts a mix of ambitious professionals to their expanding economy. Although the cost of living in Charlotte is slightly above the national average, it’s still affordable compared to similar cities.

But before you move to the Hornets Nest (not the Wasp’s Nest, y’all), make sure you familiarize yourself with the city and what it is like to live in a thriving city with small-town, southern comfort charm.

Things To Know
Things to Know Before Moving to Charlotte

Head to Downtown, Charlotte and you’ll end up in “Uptown.” Just go with the flow, it’s the norm for everyone in Charlotte to refer to the Downtown area as Uptown. Charlotte boasts the second-largest banking center in the United States. Thanks to the city’s Bank of America headquarters, Charlotte isn’t far behind New York, the reigning leader in the world for banking.

You can trace Charlotte’s earliest nickname back to 1780. The invading British found Charlotte to be a spirited hornet’s nest of patriots and fled, providing a perfect moniker for the city’s first NBA team. The “City of Churches” is another nickname, with choices like Zion Church among the 700 places of worship.

    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.


    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.
