Apartment Rent Calculator Equations:

Finding a great apartment is one thing but what about affordability? Before signing the lease, there’s a lot to consider. Apartment communities often use equations to determine what’s affordable for prospective renters. Some communities use a 3 times rent calculator formula, meaning a renter’s monthly income should be at least 3 times what goes to paying rent.

At REE, we recommended that your income is at least 2.5 times your monthly rent amount. Our simple apartment rent calculator will help you determine the optimal rent in the Twin Cities apartment market for your personal budget.
