View full Gastonia Rent Report
1. Transport networks:

Gastonia is well serviced by a number of local transport options. These include:

  • Gastonia Greenway Plan: The City has undertaken a comprehensive bike and pedestrian plan to create a proposed Greenway Corridor, linking various points within the city, as well as developing roadside trails, sidewalks, bike lanes and a Carolina Thread trail. All good news for those who like to cycle or stretch their legs on their way to work.
  • Interstate highways: Gastonia is close to the I-85 and U.S. Route 321, meaning that access to Downtown Charlotte and other nearby built-up city centers is only a car-ride away.
  • City bus service: The Gastonia Transit operates a number of services that all pass through the transfer terminal at Bradley Station.
  • Municipal and International Airports: Gastonia is perfectly placed for easy access to both the Gastonia Municipal Airport and the larger Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
2. Nightlife and cultural highlights:

The Arts on Main project run by the Gaston County Arts Guild puts on regular exhibitions and shows at the Federal Reserve Bank building in Gastonia's historic downtown. Late-night entertainment can be found in one of Gastonia's many pubs and eateries, such as The Rock House Tavern and Lily's Italian Bistro. Clubbing hot-spots include Leather & Lace and the Freeman's Pub on West Main Avenue.

Gastonia also has a planned sports and entertainment complex in the pipeline, which will be the site of the city's collegiate baseball team, the Grizzlies, and will also expect to host music events and feature a number of restaurants within its grounds.

3. Property prices:

A good fit for someone renting their first property in a new town might be to look at which properties are available that offer living space in a studio flat or apartment. In Gastonia, 71 percent of rentable accommodation can be obtained in the $0.5K to $1.0K price range, giving you plenty of places to choose from that match with your needs and expectations.

A typical example might be Destination at Union, where a studio apartment will cost you no more than $632, and where you can expect to enjoy fully-fitted kitchens and planned resident activities. Alternatively, if you're operating with a higher budget, a 1-bedroom apartment at Icon at the Greenway will cost $859, and will feature its own fireplace, kitchen appliances such as microwave, dishwasher and cooker, as well as provide access to a wide range of community amenities such as an internet cafe, clubhouse, playground and pool.

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.
