With Atlanta standing as one of the fastest growing cites in the country, the Apartment Guide blog, a site dedicated to property trends and home advice, has released a list of Atlanta’s most popular neighborhoods for rentals.
According to Apartment Guide, the search combed through Google data using generic keyword searches and combined those results with the most searched Atlanta neighborhoods on the blog’s website to determine which areas are most popular with renters.
Midtown Atlanta topped the list as “a favorite for young professionals looking to be close to the action,” the list says. Apartments in Midtown are far pricier, though: average rent for a single bedroom unit costs $300 more per month than an apartment elsewhere in Atlanta.
Buckhead and Downtown Atlanta were next, both drawing in a number of college students and professionals. Rent costs there are also above the city average, with a typical monthly single bedroom rent costing around $1,515.
The final two cities on the list were Virginia Highland and Inman Park, two cities that have gained attraction because of their access to the Atlanta BeltLine. Both neighborhoods have a “small town feel in the big city” that makes them popular among families, Apartment Guide said.
Inman Park’s average rents are actually more expensive than Downtown Atlanta, costing almost $1,750 per month for a single bedroom apartment, according to the post. Virginia Highland’s costs are slightly lower – $1,301 per month for the same size.
