July 2018 Charleston Rent Report

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

Charleston rents increase sharply over the past month

Charleston rents have increased 1.6% over the past month, and have increased significantly by 4.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Charleston stand at $960 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,140 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in March. Charleston's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.8%, as well as the national average of 1.4%.

Rents rising across cities in South Carolina

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Charleston, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in South Carolina, 8 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.8% 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, Mount Pleasant is the most expensive of all South Carolina's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,600; of the 10 largest cities in South Carolina that we have data for, Rock Hill and Columbia, where two-bedrooms go for $970 and $960, are the only two major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.3% and -0.3%).
  • Greer, Charleston, and North Charleston have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (6.0%, 4.3%, and 4.3%, respectively).

Charleston rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • Charleston's median two-bedroom rent of $1,140 is slightly below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 4.3% increase in Charleston.
  • While Charleston's rents rose significantly over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Seattle (-2.0%) and Minneapolis (-0.1%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Charleston 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 Charleston.

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.

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.
