TULSA, Oklahoma -

Looking for an affordable place to rent an apartment? It appears Tulsa is a good place to look.

Nine of the 10 cheapest places to rent an apartment across the country are located in the middle of the U.S., according to data compiled by ApartmentList.com, an apartment search service.

Rent prices across the country average about $1,231 each month, but the median rents in these more affordable places are about half that.

The web site says the median rent in Tulsa is $672 per month.

A high-end, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with nearly 800 square feet of living space in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri, will run about $1,000 per month, while the same kind of space in San Diego -- the 10th-most-expensive city to rent an apartment in the country -- will cost you around $1,700.

Leasing agents and landlords are hunting down potential renters and trying to reel them in with updates and perks, said ApartmentList.com CEO John Kobs.

The 10 cheapest places to rent an apartment:

  1. Wichita, Kansas
  2. Tucson, Arizona
  3. Tulsa, Oklahoma
  4. Detroit, Michigan
  5. Indianapolis, Indiana
  6. Memphis, Tennessee
  7. Arlington, Texas
  8. Columbus, Ohio
  9. Louisville, Kentucky
  10. Kansas City, Missouri

The median rents in these 10 cities range from $623 to $730 -- that's a far cry from the nearly $4,000 median rent rate for apartments in San Francisco, which has the distinction of being the most expensive place to rent in the country.
