Looking to save on rent? Recently published data from shows where Americans looking to save on their next rent check may want to move, breaking down the cities with the cheapest rent across the country. The new survey pointed to recent population trends highlighted in data published last spring by the U.S.

Census Bureau. The trends showed people moving from major urban hubs to small cities as they sought out a more affordable cost of living. Because of the movement, smaller cities across the U.S. experienced the highest annual population gain in more than a decade, according to But, with the movement also came an adjustment in rent prices, as smaller cities not only saw their populations rise, but also their rental prices. Still, there are places in the country with cheaper rent prices, as the data showed 21 cities have an average rent of $1,000 a month or less. The report also found that nearly 40 cities saw their rental costs decrease year-over-year, with 20 seeing declines of over $100 a month. To make it on the list, cities had to have a population of over 50,000 and offer a combination of one- and two-bedroom unit types.
