Apartment rentals in Utrecht are not that cheap anymore. But knowing where to rent can save you lots of money. There is a big difference in rental prices between the different neighborhoods. Below we tell you which neighborhoods in Utrecht have the lowest rental prices.
We have collected, filtered and analysed all the data of the first 4 months in 2019. We have removed all social sector housing, in order to keep the m2 prices realistic, as rentals below €720 can only be rented after a long time on the waiting list. And guess what? There is a very big difference in average rental prices. The most expensive neighborhood is even 3 times as expensive as the cheapest. So read on to find out what the neighborhoods are where you can find the cheapest apartment rentals in Utrecht:
Nr.3 Utrecht Zuid
On the 3rd spot is Utrecht Zuid, with an average m2 price of €19,11. That is only €0,34 cheaper than the average m2 price of the 3rd spot in Amsterdam. Not that cheap after all it seems. But still much cheaper than Zuidwest or the city center (binnenstad).
There have been several reports of high crime rates in Overvecht in the past few years. So maybe it is not the best place to rent. But if your budget does not allow you to rent an apartment in one of the better areas of Utrecht, then Overvecht with an average m2 price of €15,89 might be worth considering.
Nr.1 Leidsche Rijn
It is just outside of the ring of Utrecht, but for an average m2 price of €11,64 it is definitely worth the ride. Besides, with your bicycle or public transport you will be anywhere in Utrecht in no-time. As a comparison, the city center of Utrecht will set you back an average of €23,18 per m2, so renting an apartment in Leidsche Rijn will cost you less than half.
