Apartment List just released our quarterly Renter Migration Report, providing new data on where renters across the country are looking to move. At the top is an interactive map summarizing the behavior of millions of Apartment List users searching on our platform from January through March of this year. Over 40% are looking for their next home in a new metro, and 27% are searching in a new state, both well above pre-pandemic benchmarks.
Key insights from the report include:
  • 55% of Charlotte apartment hunters are looking for homes outside the metro area. The most popular destinations among these renters are Charleston, Raleigh, and Greenville.

  • In the other direction, 41% of renters looking for apartments in Charlotte are searching from out-of-town. Atlanta, Raleigh, and New York are providing the most inbound search interest this quarter.
