Lexington is the official city that overtook the old township under the rather Dracula-esqe township of Saxe Gotha in South Carolina. Now, Lexington has nearly 18,000 residents, which makes it the largest city in all Lexington County. King George II put English settlers here in 1735 to protect English-claimed land from the native tribes in the area. The dark-sounding name of King George's township was actually a happy reference to the marriage of the king's son to the princess of Saxe-Gotha, a redundant European state.

Renting in Lexington

The cost of a rental home in Lexington is highly dependent on the neighborhood you choose to live in. You know, posh houses here, liberal-arts student housing over there - it makes for a good mix of people. The more upscale rental houses are in the eastern Woburn Street area, and cost around about twice as much per month in rent than most places in the country. If, however, what you really want is a plain-and-simple South Carolina mansion, then you need look no further than the Todd Road and Saddle Club Road estates, where no fewer than 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and an unbelievable monthly rent awaits you (we're talking seriously wallet emptying rent amounts).

Seriously though, most houses in Lexington can be had for a fair price. And apartments? You can get a good deal on these. Yes, you will feel the rent, but it won't break the bank.

Lexington

September 2020 Lexington Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2020 Lexington Rent Report. Lexington rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Lexington rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Lexington rents increase sharply over the past month

Lexington rents have increased 1.4% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 2.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Lexington stand at $952 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,099 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Lexington's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.7%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents falling across cities in South Carolina

    While rent prices have increased in Lexington over the past year, other cities across the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have fallen in 1 of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in South Carolina. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.7% 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 $1,561; of the 10 largest South Carolina cities that we have data for, 6 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Spartanburg experiencing the fastest decline (-3.7%).
    • Rock Hill, North Charleston, and Charleston have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.4%, 2.9%, and 2.0%, respectively).

    Lexington rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Lexington's median two-bedroom rent of $1,099 is below the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While Lexington's rents rose moderately over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Lexington than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Lexington.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S. at this link.

    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.
