If you want to move to a city that’s better for your budget — or maybe just to a different housing complex in your current city — you need to compare all of the apartments for rent. However, comparing the cost of apartments from city to city is a tedious process that involves tons of Google searching and number-crunching.

For this reason, GoBankingRates conducted a study of what the average one-bedroom apartment costs in 50 major U.S. cities. This study looked at various factors, including the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment, the average square footage, the cost of basic monthly utilities and each city’s walkability score, which is based on a scale from 0 to 100.

In order to provide the most comprehensive apartment guide to cities across the country, GOBankingRates also identified the percentage of apartments for rent in each city that have the following amenities: dishwashers, washer-dryers, a pool, fitness center access, pet-friendly units and parking.

To better understand where your city — or soon-to-be city — ranks nationally, here are the averages for each factor from all 50 cities on the list:

  • Median rent for 1-bedroom apartment: $1,234.43
