Overview of South Charlotte

In 2013, American Forests recognized Charlotte, North Carolina, for its abundance of healthy trees, and some of the city's cheap apartments are found on those tree-lined streets. South Charlotte is known for offering an affordable cost of living, but the local theme park, Carowinds, is also a major attraction. This park features one of the country's tallest roller coasters, a large water park and the frightening Scarowinds haunted house during the Halloween season. Many residents buy season passes and frequent the park throughout the year.

A number of students make South Charlotte home because it's close to the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. UNC students also appreciate the thriving economy that allows them to earn money while studying. Jobs are also available for recent graduates and experienced workers. Using the price filters on Rent.com allows you to quickly find apartments in the area within your particular budget.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments in South Charlotte

Due to the range of temperatures experienced in Charlotte throughout the year, it's important to find an apartment with heating and air conditioning. Since you have to give up some amenities when you rent cheap apartments, you may consider sacrificing parking space. Many South Charlotte apartments are conveniently located near the Lynx rail system, so getting to other parts of the city is easy and affordable.

You can expect most studio and one-bedroom apartments at the lower end of the market to offer 500-800 square feet of space. Many of these apartment complexes offer just one floor plan for these cheap apartments, with open designs that include a living room and kitchen with one bathroom. Bedrooms are often off the living room with studio units offering a small sleeping area in the corner of the living room.
