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!

June 2017 Athens Rent Report

Welcome to the June 2017 Athens Rent Report. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Athens rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Athens rents increase sharply over the past month

Athens rents have increased 0.8% over the past month, and are up moderately by 3.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Athens stand at $730 for a one-bedroom apartment and $850 for a two-bedroom. This is the ninth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in August of last year. Athens' year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.2%, as well as the national average of 2.6%.

Rents rising across cities in Georgia

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Athens, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Georgia, 9 of them have seen prices rise. Georgia as a whole has logged a 3.2% year-over-year growth. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the rest of the state, Alpharetta is the most expensive of all Georgia's major cities outside the Athens metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,390; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Columbus, where a two-bedroom goes for $760, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.2%).
  • Roswell, Marietta, and Savannah have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.4%, 5.5%, and 3.6%, respectively).

Athens rents more affordable than many comparable cities nationwide

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

  • Athens' median two-bedroom rent of $850 is below the national average of $1,150. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.6% over the past year.
  • While Athens' rents rose over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Miami (-1.3%) and San Francisco (-1.0%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Athens than most similar cities. Comparably, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,020, 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.
