Cities With Cheap Rent and Good Jobs for New College Grads

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Abberly Green, Mooresville, NCThere are certain things that as a new college graduate you have little control over, such as when you're forced to join the real world. If you happened to graduate in 2008 — when the economy was hemorrhaging jobs while the stock and housing markets were collapsing — you were somewhat out of luck. Still, there were things you could have done to improve your financial odds even in the Great Recession, such as picking a city with the best odds of finding a good-paying job and an affordable place to live.

Which begs the question: Where are those cities for young grads today?

The real estate site Trulia and the careers site Indeed have teamed up to look at which cities provide the best combination of affordable rental properties and the types of jobs that typically employ new grads.

Their conclusion: Finding the ideal place to work and live is tricky, because the market in which you might find the best-paying jobs may also happen to be too pricey for a 22-year-old to afford rent.

There are parts of the country that have the highest percentage of jobs that were amenable to those right out of college. Almost a third of all postings in San Jose were "grad-friendly," and recent grads could expect to earn around $3,333 a month.

Trouble is, all of that economic activity has dramatically driven up demand and prices for homes and apartments. In the San Jose market, new grads can only afford 2.5% of the available rental listings in the area.

Do new grads have to choose between a paycheck in their pocket or a roof over their head? To an extent, yes.

Yet the researchers note that there are some "sweet spots" that offer the best of both worlds.

MONEY took the data from the survey and organized it a bit differently.

We eliminated any location where less than than 10% of the housing market was accessible to new grads, and then looked at the top job markets among the remaining towns on the list. We found the Top 50 of those markets, Charlotte, NC is number 10.

10. Charlotte, NC
Monthly Income: $2,635
Percentage of Listings Affordable to Recent College Grad: 15.2%Percentage of Grad-Friendly Job Postings: 16.5%

Finding a Home in Mooresville, NC

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Abberly Green, Mooresville, NCMoving to a new city can be daunting, but there are ways you can make it easier.

Moving to a new city can feel overwhelming. You’ll soon be surrounded by all new places and faces, which will certainly take some time to get used to. One thing that will help you get settled more quickly? Choosing the perfect place to live – one that makes you feel comfortable right away.

You may be thinking, “How can I find a home I love in a new city I know nothing about?” If you know exactly what to look for and the right questions to ask yourself, it will be easy to narrow down your options. First things first: Hit your new city for a day of exploring.

Rent or Buy?

First you’ll need to make an important distinction: Are you looking to rent a home or buy? Your finances may answer this question for you; buying a home is a major monetary commitment that takes serious planning, so be sure you are ready.

Thinking beyond bank accounts, there are other reasons it might make sense to rent rather than buy at first in a brand new city. Many real estate agents recommend renting first to get to know the area.

Rent in a new city before buying to give yourself a chance to get to know the areas. What corners you like best. Get a good understanding of how long certain commutes are to your work and other important activities.

It also gives you time to make sure you’ll actually like the new job and city.

What a nightmare it would be to buy a home in a new city, only to end up hating the job (or city) and moving back within a few months.

Lastly, the type of home you’re interested in may help narrow down your choice to rent or buy. If you definitely want an apartment/condo in a high-rise building, that is more likely available for rent.

Learn the Neighborhoods

As you start apartment hunting, keep in mind the three most important words in real estate: location, location, location. Choosing your new neighborhood can actually be more important than most other things.

As you check out the neighborhoods in your new city, consider the following: Do you want to live downtown, or in a more suburban or rural area? There are certainly pros and cons to each option.

Downtown, you may be within walking distance to great restaurants, fun entertainment and, conveniently, your place of work. That being said, you could also deal with negatives like loud street noise or frequent construction.

In the suburbs, you could have more green space with parks and playgrounds. However, if you’ve decided you’re looking for an apartment, your options might be limited outside of downtown.

Your transportation situation is also a key factor to consider. Do you own a car? How far are you willing to commute to work, and where does the neighborhood fit into traffic patterns? Take commute time into account, not just the distance.

Once you’ve pinpointed the general area you want to be, try plugging the coordinates into GPS to determine if your driving time is satisfactory to you during rush hour.

Other key factors to keep in mind when exploring a neighborhood are the specifics that fit your family’s needs. Do you have children, or are you planning a family in the future? If so, find out about the schools in the areas you’re considering.

If possible, drive around each of the schools those neighborhoods feed into. Even if you don’t have children this can give you a feel for the area.

And, of course, talk with someone familiar with the city – your new coworkers or friends in the area.

Mooresville is one of the Most Exciting Cities in North Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 07, 2017

Abberly Green, Mooresville, NCNorth Carolina is no doubt one of the most exciting states in the U.S. You want festivals? North Carolina has you covered. Bars and parties? Absolutely. And don’t even get me started on the restaurant options NC has for all the foodies out there (especially the barbecue lovers).

The point is, this state pretty much has it going on—well, depending on where you are. In the latest analysis here at the Movoto Real Estate Blog, we discovered that not all North Carolina cities are created equally exciting; not by a longshot.

How We Created This Ranking

For North Carolina’s Most Exciting Places, we used the U.S. Census (2010) to create a list of all of the places in the state with populations of 25,000 or more, which left us with a total of 34 places. Then, we used the U.S. Census and business listing to find relevant data for the following eight criteria:

  • Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy, etc.)
  • Live music venues per capita
  • Active life options per capita (parks, outdoor activities, etc.)
  • Arts and Entertainment per capita (movie theaters, festivals, galleries, theaters, etc.)
  • Fast Food restaurants per capita (the fewer the better)
  • Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the higher the better)
  • Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the higher the better)

We then ranked each place from one to 34 according to each criterion, with one being the best possible score. From there, we averaged the rankings for each place into one overall Big Deal Score, with the lowest number being our winner.

So if you think you can handle the excitement, keep reading to find out just what makes each of our top 10 more thrilling than the rest. Otherwise, feel free to head down to the bottom of the post for a look at how all 34 places in the state ranked.
