Rentals - MSN Real Estate

I love the city of Raleigh, it's an up & coming area...Here is a cool article that highlights some of the benefits of living in the Triangle...7 cool cities with cheap rents


Part of the Research Triangle (including Durham and Chapel Hill), Raleigh is as hot as it gets, thanks to a healthy job market, a billion-dollar downtown rehab, top universities and plentiful, inexpensive housing. About two years ago, Tom Augur, a 27-year-old certified public accountant, left Boston for Raleigh's small-city atmosphere. His three-bedroom townhouse cost $150,000. "I would have gotten 50% less in Boston and paid more than twice as much," he says. Young locals eat sushi and listen to blues in Glenwood South, or hit dance parties in the Warehouse District.

Where to rent: Duraleigh Road, Cameron Village, downtown

What you'll pay: $650 a month for a one-bedroom, $750 for a two-bedroom, $750-$950 for a two-bedroom house

What you just missed: a two-bedroom apartment in a Tudor-style house near Cameron Village, $650

Where to be at 11 p.m.: Lincoln Theatre, Martin Street Music Hall

Not-in-NYC bonus: $9,218
