Let’s all move to North Carolina, people.
Brooklyn — $1,000
Size: 300-square-foot studio
Amenities: It does have hardwood floors and high ceilings, but the kitchen is so close to the bed that you could probably cook an omelette while taking a nap. Also, there’s a communal bathroom to share with other tenants, and nothing says “fun” like a toilet clogged with someone else’s fecal matter.
Birmingham, Alabama — $825
Size: 1,103-square-foot two-bedroom apartment
Amenities: There’s a shared pool and tennis court, so you can rent until you retire.
Cleveland — $1,175
Size: A three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, single-family home
Neighborhood: Cleveland Heights
Amenities: To start, it’s a house. AN ENTIRE HOUSE, PEOPLE. There’s a second floor and a two-car garage. Also, you know you’re an IRL adult when you live in a house that has a security system.
Nashville — $1,006
Size: 716-square-foot one-bedroom apartment
Neighborhood: River’s Edge
Amenities: You’ll have a patio, a shared pool, and landscaped grounds. Essentially, you’re the Great Gatsby.
Augusta, Georgia — $750
Size: A two-bedroom floor of a historic home that covers 1,100 square feet
Neighborhood: Olde Town
Amenities: A huge living room with a fireplace. A clawfoot tub. Central air. A massive backyard. And…wait for it…A PORCH SWING. Pack up your parent’s car and move to this house RN.
New York City — $960
Size: Not listed, but seeing as your bed also serves as the doorstopper, probably not a ton of space
Neighborhood: Little Italy
Amenities: This apartment boasts having central air, but you’ll have to enjoy it with a stranger…who will be your brand new roommate. (Yes, he already lives there.) You and this strangermate will be cool AF all summer long.
