City Guide

Spartanburg
Spartanburg, SC

In "The Upstate" of South Carolina lies the city of Spartanburg, an oasis for those who desire an urban lifestyle with all of the natural beauty of countryside living. To snag the best rentals in town, read on and learn everything Spartanburg has to offer.

Spartanburg is a college town. With six colleges located throughout the city, student life is a major influence on the local culture as well as the rental market. Apartment availability is much more plentiful between semesters, when students return home for the holidays, relocate, or graduate and leave town. Downtown is often full of the young and restless who enjoy their drinks, as well as their city's local attractions. It’s truly an entertaining city, whether you’re in college or not.

With the Retrofest, the Spring Fling festival, the Sidewalk Arts Show, the International Festival, the weekly Music on Main, and the Spartanburg Bands Together festival, it seems like there’s always something to do. And, for you nature lovers, access to the beautiful Cottonwood Trail, which runs along Lawson's Fork Creek, passed crystal clear waters, through woodlands, wetlands, and wildlife, should satisfy your needs. Cottonwood’s a favorite route among local cyclists, walkers, and joggers and beats sitting in the car any day!

Enough with the splendor of the natural world, let’s talk apartments! Rental prices range from $400 to $900, which means that no matter where you look you’re likely to find an amazing pad within your budget. At the higher price point, apartments come with resort-style amenities – hot tubs, pools, fitness centers, tennis and volleyball courts, as well as river access -- and are often located in prime rental locations, such as downtown or within walking distance to college classes and local entertainment. Extra features like fireplaces, luxuriously furnished units, and washer/dryers are also common among these high-priced rentals (which are easily affordable when you rent with a roommate). At the lower price point, apartments still include plenty of amenities to the tune of business centers, clubhouses, pools, and playgrounds for the young ones. Moreover, a number of places come with a washer and dryer in the unit. The coin-op days are over, my friend.

Want to bring your pets along? No problem! This is a very pet-friendly place to live. Have commitment issues? No problem! There are plenty of apartment complexes offering short-term leases and furnished apartments. You can very easily and affordably move around the city until you find the perfect place to live.

Now, loaded with useful information, you’re ready to make the leap into this amazing little city. Check out our listings and happy hunting out there!

Rent Report
Spartanburg

October 2020 Spartanburg Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2020 Spartanburg Rent Report. Spartanburg rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Spartanburg rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Spartanburg rents increased significantly over the past month

Spartanburg rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and have increased marginally by 0.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Spartanburg stand at $853 for a one-bedroom apartment and $965 for a two-bedroom. This is the fifth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in April. Spartanburg's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.7%, but exceeds the national average of -1.4%.

    Spartanburg rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased marginally in Spartanburg, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Spartanburg is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Spartanburg's median two-bedroom rent of $965 is below the national average of $1,106. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 0.6% increase in Spartanburg.
    • While Spartanburg's rents rose marginally over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+3.4%) and Detroit (+1.6%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Spartanburg than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,592, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Spartanburg.

    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.

      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.
