City Guide
Well for Starters...

Moorseville, NC houses the headquarters of the Lowe's home improvement stores. Mooresville has a stable housing market, pleasant sunny weather and breadth of recreational amenities in town. I-77 runs north and south through the town while I-40 runs east and west. To make it even easier for commuters, I-85 is only 15 miles away. This puts more than half of the U.S. population within a day's drive of Mooresville.

Find an Apartment in Mooresville

When Should I Look for Rental Homes?

You'll find that looking for an apartment or rental home is easiest at the beginning of summer and just after Thanksgiving when the NASCAR season is over. Conversely, if you have to search in the fall or in January, you'll need to move super-fast to not lose a great space. Be prepared to plop down a deposit the day you view an apartment because it might not be there the next day, or even a few hours later.

What Paperwork Should I Bring?

Proof of income (about two times the rent) in the form of pay stubs or a letter of employment stating your salary is definitely required when you're apartment hunting. If you're bringing a pet, have Rover's vet records up to date and in hand. Be prepared to pay a security deposit and a pet deposit if applicable, with each possibly running a few hundred dollars.

Neighborhoods in Mooresville

Mayhew: Jutting out into Lake Norman in southwestern Mooresville, this area is a mixture of medium to small houses and smaller apartments. Commuting from this spot isn't the most convenient, but you're moving here for the view anyway.

Mount Mourne: With I-77 cutting through the center, you can easily get to Charlotte or Statesville in no time. Lots of stores and banks are convenient to Mount Mourne as well.

Lake Norman/McCrary: On the east shore of Lake Norman and the west side of Mooresville, the area around the McCrary access area is more owner-occupied. But if you stick close to River Hwy (150), you can find apartment complexes, although they tend to be a little outdated.

Coddle Creek: The eastern portion of Mooresville is rural to the extreme. You can score a rental home -- large or small -- or even a mobile home, but apartments aren't common here. Neither are there many grocery stores, drug stores or really anything else except land and more land. The area is starting to become more developed, however, so if you can hang in there, you might want to pick your spot now before prices go up.

Living in Mooresville

Not sure how to fill your free time once you make the move to Mooresville? Lake Norman is always a safe choice. Launch a boat, fish, walk trails that wind along the lake's shore or even head to one of the beach areas. Chain restaurants and fast food places dot the landscape, so definitely plan on regularly hitting a walking path, golf course or park.

When you need to get a major retail therapy fix, head to Birkdale Village just south of Mooresville, Concord Mills to the east, or drive about 20 minutes south into Charlotte. See a Panthers game, visit a museum or dine at a world-class restaurant, then drive home to your vast acreage in Mooresville.

September 2018 Mooresville Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2018 Mooresville Rent Report. Mooresville rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Mooresville rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Mooresville rents increase sharply over the past month

Mooresville rents have increased 0.7% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 3.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Mooresville stand at $920 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,080 for a two-bedroom. This is the seventh straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Mooresville's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.8%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

Rents rising across cities in North Carolina

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Mooresville, 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 0.8% 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 $1,250; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Durham, where a two-bedroom goes for $1,080, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.4%).
  • High Point, Winston-Salem, and Asheville have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.4%, 2.2%, and 2.1%, respectively).

Mooresville rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased moderately in Mooresville, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Mooresville is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Mooresville's median two-bedroom rent of $1,080 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.0% over the past year compared to the 3.4% increase in Mooresville.
  • While Mooresville's rents rose moderately over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Seattle (-2.4%) and Minneapolis (-0.5%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Mooresville than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Mooresville.

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.
