City Guide
Wake Forest
Wake Forest, North Carolina

If you're looking for some advice on renting and living in Wake Forest, then you’ve found the perfect guide. We've got everything you need to know right here, so read on to get the tips and tricks you'll need on your hunt for the best property rentals in town.

Situated in the rolling hill country of North Carolina, this charming and historic setting just a stone's throw from Raleigh is in pretty high demand these days. In the last 10 years, this little city has more than doubled in size. And, who could blame it? It's quite the charmer. With a quaint downtown, lots of historic architecture, beautiful parks, thousands of acres of lakeside woodlands, and plenty of places to shop, eat, and just kick back in the warm Carolina sun, it's no wonder the masses are flocking to this old-town inspired community. And, this life could all be yours for a very affordable price.

There are many different types of rentals around here, from inexpensive apartments, to the stylish factory and cotton mill-conversions, to charming townhomes and duplexes housed in historic grand Victorian homes, to the newer suburban houses, simple ranchers, and doublewide trailer homes that dot the outer city limits. Rental rates range from $550 to well over $3000. For less than a grand, you’re looking at small rental homes, duplexes, trailer homes, and apartments. Anything over a grand is either going to be a luxury apartment, a grand Victorian, or a brand spankin' new suburban rental home.

Although there aren't a whole lot of apartment complexes in town, the ones that are around are jam-packed with convenient amenities. Business centers, fitness centers, laundry facilities, basketball courts, community clubhouses, playgrounds, and swimming pools can be part of your life if you choose to reside in an apartment community.

If you plan on bring the cat or dog along, then fear not, because Wake Forest has plenty of pet-friendly places to live. Even dog-friendly apartments and property rentals can be found throughout the city, many of which are located near lakes, ponds, hiking trails, and big, open, green parks where your dogs can run themselves silly.

Looking for the bad side town? Well, you won't find it around here. Everywhere you look, the grass is green, the streets are walkable, the parks are full of kids playing soccer and families picnicking... yes, it's all butterflies and daisies and pleasantly uneventful family-friendly living.

That's the Wake Forest life in a nutshell. Now, get on with the hunt and best of luck!

June 2018 Wake Forest Rent Report

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

Wake Forest rents increased significantly over the past month

Wake Forest rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, but have remained steady at 0.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Wake Forest stand at $1,020 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,170 for a two-bedroom. Wake Forest's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.2%, as well as the national average of 1.5%.

Rents rising across cities in North Carolina

Throughout the past year, rents have remained steady in the city of Wake Forest, but other cities across the entire state have seen rents increase. 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 1.2% 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 $1,220; of the 10 largest North Carolina cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Winston-Salem experiencing the fastest growth (+4.2%).
  • Wilmington, High Point, and Greensboro have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.4%, 3.3%, and 2.4%, respectively).

Wake Forest rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

Rent growth in Wake Forest has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases; in contrast, rents in a few cities have actually declined. Wake Forest is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Wake Forest's median two-bedroom rent of $1,170 is equal to the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.5% over the past year compared to the stagnant growth in Wake Forest.
  • While rents in Wake Forest remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.2%), Atlanta (+2.0%), and San Francisco (+1.5%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,040, $1,170, and $3,070 respectively.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Wake Forest than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,070, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Wake Forest.

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.
