City Guide
Athens

A little money goes a long way in Athens, where cheap apartments definitely rule the roost (Four to six hundred bucks, tops, is all it takes to land a quality one or two bedroom apartment or townhouse in Athens). Amenities, meanwhile, tend to be top notch, as many apartment complexes come equipped with in-unit washers/dryers, oversized swimming pools, fitness centers, clubhouses, balconies, patios, garage parking, and magic elves who clean your house while you sleep (okay, perhaps we exaggerate).

Pet-friendly rentals are available in abundance as well (ditto for furnished apartments in Athens), and waiting lists are rare, so feel free to shop the market leisurely before deciding which humble abode is the best fit for you. Just arm yourself with a couple forms of I.D. (sorry, League of Justice cards don’t qualify), proof of income, and a list of previous residences when you’re ready to submit a leasing app, and you’ll be kicking back in your Athens dream pad before you know it!

Home to a quaint downtown shopping district, the walker-friendly George S. Houston Historic District, and a wide range of open spaces, parks, museums, historic sites, and eateries, Athens is a city with something to offer. So what are you waiting for, bold apartment scavengers? Start sifting through the listings for a primo crash pad in Athens, and happy hunting!

October 2017 Athens Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2017 Athens Rent Report. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Athens rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Athens rents increase sharply over the past month

Athens rents have increased 0.8% over the past month, and are up sharply by 6.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Athens stand at $740 for a one-bedroom apartment and $870 for a two-bedroom. The city's rents have been increasing for 13 straight months - the last time rents declined was in August of last year. Athens' year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.4%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Athens rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased sharply in Athens, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Athens is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Rents also increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Georgia as a whole logging rent growth of 3.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.9% in Augusta and 2.6% in Atlanta.
  • Athens' median two-bedroom rent of $870 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 6.5% rise in Athens.
  • While Athens' rents rose sharply over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including DC (-0.8%) and New York (-0.1%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Athens than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,080, which is more than three-and-a-half times the price in Athens.

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.

Read more about our methodology here.

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.
