City GuideDurham
If you’ve heard of Durham, you’ve probably heard the term The Research Triangle. We know it sounds a bit scary; a nightmare combination of grad school, an unfortunate Amelia Earhart expedition and your apartment search all wrapped into one unsettling anxiety attack. Not what you had in mind for the weekend? Fear not weary explorer, we’ve got a handle on this and there’s good news on the horizon—Durham, known as the City of Medicine—is an easy pill to swallow in many ways but we’ll start with ...

In Durham, it might appear that all roads lead to Duke University—the heart of this town and the city’s largest employer, but Durhamites (they don’t bite) are an eclectic bunch of scholarly brains and creative types that give this city a serious edge.

Both established neighborhoods and up and coming ones have much to offer including a range of pricing as diverse as its inhabitants. Often described as “gritty” in a good way, this is a small city with a big appetite for culture, education, technology and the arts.

Having trouble with Craigslist Durham? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Downtown: You and Your Lofty Ideals

The city center has undergone exciting revitalization in the past few decades. Old tobacco warehouses have been converted into high-end living and retail spaces that offer amenities for the modern dweller who likes things shiny and new. Housing consists mostly of condo and loft style rental units. Although pricey, a one bedroom loft apartment puts you in the center of a thriving scene which includes fine dining establishments, unique retail, and young professionals moving on up. Like most residential areas in downtown cities, finding a grocery store is usually a challenge. Durham is working hard to bring a high-quality store into the area. Enter The Durham Central Market, a co-op grocery store owned by community members (that means you) and investors. The project is currently in the development stage, but it’s likely that buying groceries downtown will be a reality in the future.

Charmed, I’m Sure

For those seeking the tree-lined streets of older, established neighborhoods, areas such as Watts-Hillandale, Trinity Park, and Old West Durham offer a mix of houses, duplexes and apartment living. Competitively priced for quiet, residential living in historic neighborhoods, you are within walking distance of the ninth street shopping district with its funky, independent shops and restaurants. When you’re in the mood to hug a tree or perhaps kiss a frog, green spaces and dog parks are abundant in the city. The Tobacco Trail, a popular route for hiking and biking, is easily accessed from these neighborhoods, and if the natural splendor steps away from your living space isn’t enough, the Coast and the Smoky Mountains are both just a few hours away. Because this area is so desirable, properties rent fast. Be prepared to move quickly when you find the seemingly perfect place.

Is There a Doctor in the House?

In Durham, there will be no shortage of doctors and quality medical care. They don’t call it the City of Medicine for kicks and giggles. Life happens, even moving-related injuries are known to occur. Why exactly are you moving that overstuffed sofa by yourself? Rest easy, the area around Duke University Hospital, particularly near Erwin Rd., offers a large concentration of apartment complexes and rental properties, with easy access to the city’s bus line, the Durham Area Transit Authority (DATA). A popular area for professionals, students and that category known as “other,” there’s something in the way of housing for everyone.

Soccer Balls and Shopping Malls

The area near Southpoint shopping mall is best described as suburban. Young families, single professionals and grad students make up this area of planned communites, cul-de-sacs and apartment complexes, conveniently located to familiar big box retail stores and family-oriented amenities. Like most of the neighborhoods in Durham, the city center is accessible in a matter of minutes when you’re itching to kick up your heels.

Getting In and Around (and Turned Around)

Durham is a city known to have street names that change without warning. For instance, Duke University Road and West Chapel Hill Street are the same. It can get tricky, but not Bermuda Triangle tricky—you may get lost, but it won’t be forever. The city is relatively easy to navigate otherwise, with good public transportation and residents happy to help you find your way. Highway 147 cuts across the city diagonally with all major areas of interest easily accessed and traffic not too hairy within the city limits. Bike enthusiasts will be happy to know that the League of American Bicyclists recently named the city of Durham a Bicycle Friendly Community—although many residents agree that more paths and racks are found on Duke’s campus than elsewhere in town.

Beware, the Students

Now that you’ve got your wits about you, take note of some other helpful tips when apartment hunting in Durham. Both Duke University and North Carolina Central University bring thousands of students to the area each year, not to mention both experienced professionals and young graduates who have accepted job offers in the city’s prominent firms, hospitals and the all-mighty Research Triangle Park—7,000 acres of more than 170 research facilities in technology, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medicine, all affiliated with the major universities of Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham. Housing can be competitive, especially in the summer months. If you can, consider renting in the “off season” where you’ll be one of a few candidates and not one of twenty-five. If this isn’t possible, jump on the right place when you see it and consider bringing a letter of reference from your previous landlord to set you apart from the crowd.

A New Lease on Life

Good news when it comes to signing a lease—they come in a range of sizes to fit your needs. You won’t be asking if your butt looks big in your cozy little pad if you take advantage of the agreement that suits you best, so do your research & be flexible. Signing a lease for three, six, and nine months is a common alternative to the traditional year-long commitment. However, a three-month lease will average 200 to 300 dollars more a month in rent, whereas a six-month agreement will average 50 to 100 dollars more. While the cost in monthly expenses may be higher than you’d like, breaking a lease agreement can be the most costly of all.

Some high-end rental properties in Durham require tenants to have renter’s insurance. This may come as a surprise for many, so be sure to read over a lease carefully before you sign on the dotted line. Come to think of it, reading your lease and insuring your possessions are two of the leat expensive and smartest things you can do when moving to Durham. Even in the City of Medicine, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

August 2019 Durham Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Durham Rent Report. Durham rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Durham rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Durham rents declined significantly over the past month

Durham rents have declined 0.4% over the past month, but have increased moderately by 3.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Durham stand at $959 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,127 for a two-bedroom. Durham's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.7%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across cities in North Carolina

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Durham, 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 2.7% 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 $1,298; 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 (+4.8%).
    • Cary, Durham, and High Point have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.5%, 3.7%, and 3.4%, respectively).

    Durham rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Durham's median two-bedroom rent of $1,127 is below the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 3.7% increase in Durham.
    • While Durham's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Dallas (+2.1%), and New York (+1.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Durham than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,126, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Durham.

    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.

    • "Durham is an up-and-coming city so there’s lots of fun things to do. It’s also progressive and welcoming to anyone. But the schools aren’t great, so I’m not sure I’d live here with a family." -Courtney J.
    • "Crime is bad in some parts of town, but I love the downtown area and all the great year-round activities." -Jackie M.
