Fair Market Rents for Roanoke


What are "fair market rents?"

Each year, the federal government looks at the rents being charged for privately owned apartments in different communities, and the costs of utilities (heat, electricity, etc.) in those communities. The "fair market rents" are an estimate of the average gross rents (rents plus utilities) for medium-quality apartments of different sizes in a particular community.

Roanoke VA   ( 0 BR $509 )  ( 1BR $542 )  ( 2BR $700 ) ( 3BR  $888 ) ( 4BR $970 ) for Botetourt, Craig, Roanoke, Roanoke City, Salem City

I've gotten this information before for Roanoke, Va. from Sec. 8. But looking at the fair market rents in other areas really opened my eyes. Roanoke, Va. appears to be average to low for market rents across the nation. Look at the rents in NOVA and Southeastern Va. I know property in NOVA is going to be high - but property prices in Southeastern Va. are going to be similar to what we have in Roanoke. Maybe property down there is a better investment?

Roanoke is pretty darned good for real estate investment and hard to beat. I've lived in many places just like up where you are where it's real difficult to even make a place cash flow.

A couple other places to determine rents which seem to run a little high are:
