And don’t worry about breaking your bankroll on your humble abode: Even 3BR units with all the bells and whistles you could ever dream of (assuming you dream of apartment amenities, that is… which is kind of weird, we must say) are available in the $800-$900 range.

Be Prepared

Bring along the basics when you’re ready to submit a leasing application, including two forms of identification, proof of income, banking info, and a list of previous residences. Many (but not all) landlords require tenants pay a one-time security deposit (which is usually returnable if you refrain from treating your apartment like a hair metal band’s hotel room), while others charge non-refundable move-in/cleaning fees as well. Landlords in Concord have radically different policies regarding pets, roommates, smoking, and subletting, so do some preliminary research about a property before scheduling a visit.

After you’ve signed your lease and you’re ready to move in, you’ll have the chance to fill out a move-in checklist that allows you to make note of any imperfection at your new humble abode. Mark down even the most minor flaw, or else you risk losing your deposit over a preexisting blemish. If something major is wrong – i.e., a large appliance doesn’t function, your water pressure or temperature is inadequate, or somebody else is already living there (which is always awkward) – don’t move anything in until management has resolved the issue. Also, it’s always a good idea to bring along an objective third party who might spot some flaws that your own super stoked eyes were too excited to see.

Picking Your ‘Hood

Before choosing which apartment complex is best for you, it’s always a good idea to decide which neighborhood suits your tastes. In Concord, the neighborhoods range from ultramodern (Afton Hills, Sycamore Ridge) and upscale (Carriage Downs, Laurel Park) to rural (Zemosa Acres), secluded (Haddington East, Partridge Bluff), and historic (downtown, Roberta Farms, and others). Still, we recommend you spend plenty of time in (and do plenty of research about) a specific area of Concord before slapping your John Hancock on a lease agreement.

Paying For Your New Digs (and Keeping Your Sanity On The Road)

Concord has a solid local economy built around the shipping, financial, manufacturing, and motorsports industries, but even so, only about 1 in 7 residents have the luxury of both living and working in the city. Fortunately, the trek to the various businesses in nearby Charlotte is generally gridlock-free and usually takes only 20-25 minutes, tops. Likewise, traffic in Concord itself rarely gets too backed up, even when a NASCAR event is in town, meaning motorists don’t have to worry about losing their marbles in white-knuckled bouts of traffic-induced rage.

Public transportation is readily available, as the CK Rider city buses hit up various commercial and residential areas throughout the city for only a buck a ride. Still, we recommend leaning heavily on your own vehicle to bum around town, as the landscape is so spread out that the only way to shop, work, and play with any semblance of convenience is with your own set of wheels.

Getting Your Kicks

Concord is, for the most part, a suburban “bedroom community,” but that doesn’t mean you’ll have nothing to do than sit around your new apartment wishing you’d moved to Charlotte instead. Motorsports are a big part of life in Concord, as the city is home to the renowned Charlotte Motor Speedway, numerous professional racing teams, a NASCAR research facility, and a state-of-the-art drag racing venue, making the city a sort of Mecca for NASCAR fanatics. Still, you don’t have to be a Dale Jr. aficionado to enjoy Concord. The city also boasts several sports complexes and rec centers, as well as an aquatics center and more than 500 acres of lakeside parks and trails. Meanwhile, the historic downtown area is dotted with arts, crafts, clothing stores, eclectic eateries, art galleries, museums, and theaters, giving the city a cultural shot in the arm to complement its mostly blue-collar vibe.

And now that we’ve covered the basics about life in Concord, it’s time to find you the lodgings of your lives! Welcome to North Carolina, best of luck, and happy hunting!

Likewise, traffic in Concord itself rarely gets too backed up, even when a NASCAR event is in town, meaning motorists don’t have to worry about losing their marbles in white-knuckled bouts of traffic-induced rage.

Public transportation is readily available, as the CK Rider city buses hit up various commercial and residential areas throughout the city for only a buck a ride. Still, we recommend leaning heavily on your own vehicle to bum around town, as the landscape is so spread out that the only way to shop, work, and play with any semblance of convenience is with your own set of wheels.

Getting Your Kicks

Concord is, for the most part, a suburban “bedroom community,” but that doesn’t mean you’ll have nothing to do than sit around your new apartment wishing you’d moved to Charlotte instead. Motorsports are a big part of life in Concord, as the city is home to the renowned Charlotte Motor Speedway, numerous professional racing teams, a NASCAR research facility, and a state-of-the-art drag racing venue, making the city a sort of Mecca for NASCAR fanatics. Still, you don’t have to be a Dale Jr. aficionado to enjoy Concord. The city also boasts several sports complexes and rec centers, as well as an aquatics center and more than 500 acres of lakeside parks and trails. Meanwhile, the historic downtown area is dotted with arts, crafts, clothing stores, eclectic eateries, art galleries, museums, and theaters, giving the city a cultural shot in the arm to complement its mostly blue-collar vibe.

And now that we’ve covered the basics about life in Concord, it’s time to find you the lodgings of your lives! Welcome to North Carolina, best of luck, and happy hunting!

September 2020 Concord Rent Report

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

Concord rents increased slightly over the past month

Concord rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and are up slightly by 1.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Concord stand at $818 for a one-bedroom apartment and $954 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in May. Concord's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.5%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents rising across cities in North Carolina

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Concord, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in North Carolina, 6 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.5% 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 $1,300; of the 10 largest cities in North Carolina that we have data for, Wilmington, Charlotte, and Raleigh, where two-bedrooms go for $939, $1,144, and $1,172, respectively, are the three major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-4.3%, -0.6%, and -0.4%).
    • Fayetteville, Durham, and Greenville have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.5%, 2.0%, and 1.7%, respectively).

    Concord rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased slightly in Concord, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Concord is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Concord's median two-bedroom rent of $954 is below the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While Concord's rents rose slightly over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Concord than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is more than three times the price in Concord.

    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.
