NRV makes NerdWallet's top 10 places in U.S. for renters

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, VA -

The New River Valley metro region ranks among the top 10 locations in the country for renters according to a new list by the consumer website NerdWallet.com.

The Blacksburg-Christiansburg-Radford metro area came in #7 on NerdWallet.com's list.  The website cited Virginia Tech's Office of Student Affairs for helping focus on protect and provide resources for student renters.

NerdWallet also cited the region as having a 45% rate of renters, one of the highest on its list for the country.  It also said the median monthly rent of $645 for a one-bedroom apartment was only 11% of the median monthly income of people who live in the NRV.
