Hey there, all you Johnson City, Tennessee apartment hunters, and welcome to apartmentlist.com, the virtual apartment hunting headquarters that’s been setting people up in their dream rentals since practically the beginning of time (or 2011, but who’s counting?) Tucked away in eastern Tennessee, just west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Johnson City is a scenic, historic little city that plays host to some of the Volunteer State’s most super-sweet apartments for rent. Aren't you just jonesin’ to join the roughly 65,000 proud peeps who call Johnson City home? Then start perusing the listings in this snazzy little apartment finder we’ve mapped out for you and you’ll be living it up with J.C.’s finest before you know it!
It should come as no surprise in a city cited as one of the “10 Least Expensive Cities for Living in the U.S.A.” that cheap apartments and townhomes are available in abundance. Several apartment buildings situated within stumbling distance of the East Tennessee State University campus can be scored in the $550-$700 range. Meanwhile, luxury apartments with all sorts of fancy bells and whistles (in-unit washers/dryers, furnished interiors, vaulted ceilings, fireplaces, scenic views, and more), typically go for under $800. Fortunately, even the more modestly priced rentals in Johnson City come equipped with above average amenities and other cool stuff (swimming pools, gyms, clubhouses, patios/balconies, cleaning ninjas who sneak in and tidy up your place when you’re asleep, etc.)
Waiting lists are rare in Johnson City, although many apartment complexes do fill up just before the ETSU fall semester. If you’re a College Joe looking for a campus area crash pad, we recommend starting your apartment hunt no later than May or June to make sure you have the pick of the renting litter.
Are you bringing along a furry four-legged amigo? Luckily for you and your cat, dog, bird, carnivorous plant, or rabid wolverine, pet-friendly apartments are easy to come by in Johnson City. Just be prepared to pay an extra $25 or so in rent each month for a pet-friendly rental. Also, be sure to arm yourself with the apartment hunting basics (proof of income, a list of previous digs, banking info, etc.) when you’re ready to submit a leasing app. For those of you with no job, no credit, and no renting history – hey, at least you still have your smashing good looks – you’ll likely need a respectable cosigner to help score your dream dwellings in Johnson City.
Violent crime, fortunately, is extremely rare in Johnson City, so unless you join a fight club or something, you probably don’t have to worry too much about getting assaulted while living in this city. Still, be sure to visit in advance before deciding which part of town to call home; obviously, if you’re the collegiate type, you’ll probably feel right at home in the handful of rental properties clustered around campus.
Featuring a bustling local economy bolstered by ETSU and the “Med-Tech” corridor, a surprising number of cultural and entertainment attractions, and a nice selection of eateries, bars, live music venues, parks, trails, museums, and galleries, Johnson City makes for some great stomping grounds for yuppies, families, retirees, and students alike. So, what the heck are you silly stompers waiting for? Start clicking away for the perfect rental in Johnson City, and happy hunting!
