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.
