Springfield, MO. - Springfield has long been known as the "Queen City of the Ozarks." And for good reasons.
As the third-largest city in Missouri, Springfield anchors a metro area of nearly half a million people. Furthermore, it's also the fastest-growing region in the state. Additionally, the city is home to 10s of thousands of college students that attend Missouri State University, Ozarks Technical College, and Drury University, among other schools.
All of that has pushed demand for housing, especially rentals, higher in recent years. And that often translates into higher rents.
For example, the average apartment rents for between $715 and $855 a month. While that's not a lot compared to larger metro areas, given the region's lower wages, many renters struggle to afford to pay that much for housing.
Luckily, Springfield does have more affordable apartments.
