According to figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, about 47,016 people called Hattiesburg home as of July 1, 2015.

Data from show 64 percent of Hattiesburg residents are renters, with about 12,064 rental units occupied and the average monthly rent around $700.

For those looking to move to the Hub City, there are plenty of rental options.

One of the newest to open is Cross Creek Village’s garden apartments, with 228 units on site, spokeswoman Emily Howe said.

A few of the units have been rented in the first building, and the other buildings will open throughout 2016.

“We’re opening building by building,” Howe said.

Just down the street from Cross Creek Village is The Lakes at Turtle Creek, “a facility that offers more of the home atmosphere of high-end home dwellings at a fraction of the cost,” said Chamberlan Carothers, CPM, owner of Southgate Realty, which manages The Lakes and 15 other apartment communities with more than 900 units in the Hattiesburg area.

“We offer a lot of different options for folks,” he said.

The Lakes has been voted Mississippi’s Best Property six years in a row by Mississippi Multifamily Council, a division of the Home Builders Association of Mississippi, because of its offerings, Carothers said.

“Our management is something that we really pride ourselves on — that it factors into (the customer’s) happiness in the rental that they choose,” he said.

Apartments in the Hattiesburg area range from about $550 to $1,500 and offer one- to five-bedroom units with assorted amenities.
