Affordable Rentals in Mooresville

With one-bedroom apartments starting in low-800s, renting here is affordable. Several apartment communities like the Marquis at Morrison Plantation or the Fountains at Mooresville Town Square offer expansive square footage, a private patio or balcony and a whole host of other amenities. At more than 800 sq. ft for some units, a one bedroom can offer a lot of value for the space.

The best time to look is in the beginning of the summer or after the Thanksgiving holiday. After all, as a NASCAR town, things tend to fill up quickly during the season.

Industry and Employment

As the hometown of NASCAR and famous figures like Dale Earnhardt Jr., it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of job opportunities in the racing industry. However, that doesn't mean newcomers should limit their job search to things related to race cars. Manufacturing, wholesale and retail make up a surprising 37 percent of the job market. The poverty level in Mooresville is another big thumbs up. It's 44 percent lower than the national average, so while it might be tough to find a job, many pay a living wage.

Things to Do in Mooresville

There's plenty to do in this small town with a population of just over 34,000 people. More than 20 restaurants mean there's always a place to grab a bite or entertain guests. Plenty of shopping means residents don't need to make the trek into neighboring Charlotte to take care of grocery shopping. There are 10 stores in Mooresville. With day-to-day errands taken care of, there's still lots to look at in this suburban town.

Explore any one of the six local parks to get in some hiking, hit a ball around or just enjoy the year round nice weather. Feel like a race car driver at the indoor go-kart racing spot, or buy tickets to the next big race. Mooresville isn't known as Race City for nothing. A trip to the Penske South Racing Facility is a great way to get a look behind the scenes and under the hood of some of the world's fastest land vehicles. It's all available in Mooresville. Not to mention easy access to water sports on Lake Norman.

Getting Around in Mooresville

Before moving to Mooresville, a car is an essential investment. There is almost no public transportation available, so any errands will need a car. Some neighborhoods score well for walkability, but that won't do a lot for the morning commute. Living in areas like Morrison Plantation might mean only firing up the car to get to work, but it is a car-dependent area. So, figure in the cost of a vehicle when shopping for a one-bedroom apartment 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.
