Oh, Atlanta - I hear you calling. I'm coming back to you one fine day. No need to worry, there ain't no hurry 'cause I'm on my way back to Georgia." (Allison Krauss - "Oh Atlanta")

It happens all the time. You're at a cocktail party. Granny Smith appletini in one hand, Crab Louie with hydroponic chive in mini puff pastry in the other. While musing about summers in the Hamptons, the tennis cad injects a social trump card with a devilish aphorism extolling the virtues of winter sailing in Catalina. And just like that, it's on. The East Coast - West Coast rivalry. A virulent, zealous, hopeless fight. That's why people like Atlanta. New York has the potency of Wall Street, L.A. has the glitterati of Hollywood. That's why people like Atlanta. Let Wall Street have its base of operations for entitled billionaires - I'm just a good ol’ hard working Josephine after all. Let Hollywood be the nerve center of flashbulbs and red carpets - I don't need daily affirmation to feel like a star. That's why I like Atlanta... headquarters to Coca Cola, Home Depot, and Cartoon Network... now that's what speaks to me!

What'll ya have?

Atlanta's has an array of rental options. It is a sprawling place where land is not at a diamond premium as in other premier cities. Expect to encounter amenity-rich complexes with functions, fountains, and racquetball. There are downtown high-rises and bungalows in the social heart of the city. Also, with summer temperatures well over 90 degrees many of the apartment communities have awesome ways to help you beat the heat: outdoor areas with built in bbqs, pools and gyms. Some choose row houses near universities and in developing neighborhoods. Yes, you can even live near the Varsity if you crave those hot dogs that much... What'll ya have:

Cumberland-Smyrna: Edge cities to Atlanta, the Cumberland-Smyrna areas are scaled down amalgams of financial districts and mega-family centric zones. Home to offices (more space here than in Miami), malls, hotels, and, recently, The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. This area, especially if you work herein, is one of those places you may rarely leave. It's clean and has a little bit, but enough of everything to keep you content. Of course, if it's more of Hotlanta you seek, downtown is 10 miles Southeast. Complexes galore in this area with 1 BR apartments at $600 - $900 per month - be selective at the lower end; the higher end of this range can include non-standard features such as jacuzzi tub in unit, or bonus rooms. 2 BR pads available for around $1,050.

Emory-Deactur: Technically, one of the nation's premier universities has an Atlanta zip code, but it reaches into abutting Decatur to fulfill some of it housing, dining, and general entertainment overflow. This is a clean, historic district of Atlanta et al. With quaintly titled neighborhoods like Briarvista and Druid Hills, you can either expect this area to be green space peppered, comfortable and satisfying, or the setting of a David Lynch movie. From experience, I assure you it's the former. You'll find a smattering of cozy parks, restaurants, cafés, and tree-canopied walks in these environs. If you want nightlife, you can go either 2, 4, or 6 miles away (Brookwood, Virginia Highlands, and Buckhead Village, respectively) depending on the desired amount you wish to retain of memory, the next morning, in Emory. Expect to pay around $800 - $900 for a 1 BR in a professionally managed building. 2 BR places have a wide range of $1,000 - $1,500 and tend to feather into Atlanta's more tony nooks.

Brookwood: In between midtown Atlanta and its iconic Buckhead neighborhood, Brookwood lies magically close to downtown and major business districts, and has easy highway access. Brookwood has much big city appeal but is largely shielded from big city encroachment. This is especially true of Brookwood Hills - one of Atlanta's most exclusive neighborhoods, with a one-road-in, one-road-out design. What Brookwood Hills may lack in complex infrastructure, they more than make up for with a tireless enthusiasm for political ping-pong. In fact, putting a cold stop to Brookwood proper’s planned expansion is their pet (with emerald encrusted collar) project. Brookwood is a small, non-touristy area with a nice offering of walkable restaurants, parks, and nighttime outposts. Brookwood Hills... forget about it. Not without the password.One bedroom apartments starting around $900; two bedroom apartments around $1,250.

Buckhead: Originally dotted with estates and rolling hills, Modern Buckhead is now home to an abundance of mansions and has been known (at various times) as the wealthiest, most chic, most exclusive area of Atlanta with little exception, as well as the one most out of favor with other Atlantans. Buckhead apartments are known for being very well appointed, having the best amenities. It's almost a given that any unit you rent will have in-unit washer and dryer, hardwood floors and of course air conditioning. A lot of buildings in this area will also full time doormen to receive packages and let guests into the building.

Buckhead Village (the more urban section of Buckhead): received its share of funny looks when it began its pursuit to corner the market on Atlanta's nightlife. The good news - they succeeded. The bad news - they succeeded. For a short time, Buckhead Village was a destination in and of itself. That gave way to nightly, rowdy gatherings. While fun for a while, and certainly a boon to local coffers, Buckhead knew it was time for an utter rebranding. While this plan was taking effect, Buckhead Village became increasingly unpleasant with a "nobody really goes there anymore" feeling. Now, Buckhead, specifically the village, is thoroughly successful in its reinvention. It's fancy, and well heeled (it never stopped being the latter - its fall from grace was precipitous bet reversible). Still, and once again, the largest concentration of luxury hotels, dining, and shopping are within easy reach in Buckhead. 1 BR $900 - $1,200. 2 BR $1,200 - $1,550.

Virginia Highlands: Many cities refer to unique enclaves and niches within their limits as "villages." This usually translates into "small and wealthy". Virginia Highlands is a village, seven, in fact, that comprise a prism of residential settings with opportunities for relaxing, exercising, people watching, diversion, and money spending. With sidewalk cafés, bistros, trendy dining, parks, pets, boutiques featuring the sublime to the far out, Virginia Highlands has a deceptively comprehensive urban vibe. It's as if Epcot designed it - X paired oddly, but perfectly next to Y and it goes on for several blocks, then stops. Bungalows and craftily built homes largely define Virginia Highlands residential landscape - a sweet respite from big. Figure $850 per person per BR and you won't go wrong.

What won't ya have?

An unmanageable problem with paperwork or pets. Atlanta is large with a good combination of family, wealth, and bohemian - that translates into choice and general flexibility. Most non-home apartments have weight limits on pets that tend to run on the high side. Chances are Fido is welcomed. Some top it at 35 lbs. so assume nothing. Metro Atlanta has around 24 dog parks, making it one of the best cities to find a pet friendly apartment in. Cat parks - Zero - but millions of laundry hampers and windowsills.

Lack of traffic. The Weather Channel ranks Atlanta the third worst city in the U.S. for traffic, which is like Hooters stating that Montpelier, VT is the third hardest state capital to spell. Both companies are based in Atlanta anyway. Yet Atlanta doesn't balance out choking road congestion with a welcoming, convenient public transit system. It's good, but not Atlanta Braves, 11 playoff appearances in a row good. Keep your car. And if you're keeping your car, make sure that you've got your parking options at your apartment covered. Assigned parking and covered parking are common, but finding a garage is more unusual, unless you are looking to live in the more dense downtown area.

An ability to buy beer, wine, or liquor in stores on Sundays.

That pretty much covers it.

The view is great from Terminal D

Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the world's largest in terms of passengers. In fact, the number of passengers annually transiting through ATL (88,000,000) is over 200 times the size of the ATL itself. What does that mean? In a nutshell, a peanut shell (this is Georgia after all) Atlanta is big and small. The metropolitan area is enormous statistically, while the city itself is relatively compact (around 420,000). As such, some of the desirable neighborhoods in Atlanta, aren't actually in The Big Peach - but close enough to easily be called the peach fuzz.

March 2020 Atlanta Rent Report

Welcome to the March 2020 Atlanta Rent Report. Atlanta rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Atlanta rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Atlanta rents held steady over the past month

Over the past month Atlanta rents have remained steady. Currently, median rents in Atlanta stand at $1,037 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,198 for a two-bedroom. Atlanta's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.3%, as well as the national average of 1.7%.

    Rents rising across the Atlanta Metro

    While rents have remained steady in the city of Atlanta throughout the past year, cities across the metro have seen a different trend. Rents have risen in 9 of of the largest 10 cities in the Atlanta metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Newnan has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 3.7%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,217, while one-bedrooms go for $1,054.
    • Over the past month, Peachtree City has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.3%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,338, while one-bedrooms go for $1,159.
    • Roswell has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,474; rents were up 1.6% over the past year but remained flat month-over-month.
    • Atlanta proper has the least expensive rents in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,198; rents remained steady over the past month.

    Atlanta rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    Rent growth in Atlanta has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases. Atlanta is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Other cities across the state have seen rents moderately increase, with Georgia as a whole logging rent growth of 1.3% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 4.3% in Augusta and 1.5% in Columbus.
    • Atlanta's median two-bedroom rent of $1,198 is slightly above the national average of $1,194. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.7% over the past year compared to the stagnant growth in Atlanta.
    • While rents in Atlanta remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Austin (+3.4%), Charlotte (+2.5%), and Dallas (+2.3%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,471, $1,156, and $1,137 respectively.
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Atlanta than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Atlanta.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.

    Overview of Findings

    Apartment List has released Atlanta’s results from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of 111 million American renters nationwide.

    "Atlanta renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "They gave most categories average scores."

    Key findings in Atlanta include the following:

    • Atlanta renters gave their city a B overall.
    • The highest-rated categories for Atlanta were jobs and career opportunities, social life, recreational activities and pet-friendliness, which all received B+ grades.
    • The areas of concern to Atlanta renters are commute time (D) and quality of local schools (C+).
    • Millennial renters are very satisfied with their city, giving it an overall rating of B+, while renters who are parents are less satisfied, giving it a C+.
    • Atlanta earned similar scores compared to other nearby cities like Athens (B) and Savannah (B+), but earned higher marks than Augusta (D) and Decatur (F).
    • Atlanta relatively poorly compared to other Southern cities, including Charlotte, NC (A-), Nashville, TN (A-) and Virginia Beach, VA (A-).

    • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

    Renters say:

    • "I love that it’s got the look and style of a big city but the warmth and friendliness of a small town." – Stanis M.
    • "The city is continually growing. It’s great to see local business thriving. Though they can be more expensive, I’m willing to pay more for the unique local shops." – Katie M.
    • "Anything you could want is right at your fingertips. So many opportunities are available. Traffic is terrible, but that comes with being in an ever-growing city." – Lauren R.
    • "Love the diversity and available social activities. Hate the traffic and high rent prices in the city." – Donyule S.
