When exploring South Carolina apartments and rental options, apartment reviews become a helpful tool in determining whether a certain unit or an entire complex is the right option for you. Apartment reviews will most likely contain exactly the facts about the South Carolina apartments you were looking for, but would have not learned otherwise such as trustworthiness of a landlord, cleanliness of the amenities, and noise level, among others. While you may be attracted to the prices noted in the listings, apartment reviews can be your aid in determining whether you will be paying too much.
Two of the state’s most known cities, Charleston and Greenville, the latter being the biggest city in the Greenville-Mauldin-Easley metropolitan area, offer rental options, yet the prices differ considerably between the two. While Greenville’s average price for a studio is $589, below the state average, rental rates in Charleston are above the nation’s average and you can expect to pay over $650 for a studio. It is possible to locate a cheaper rental in the northern part of the city, but one may need to compromise on the quality of housing (mostly older apartment complexes) and amenities.
