Methodology:

Apartment List Rent Report data is drawn monthly from the millions of listings on our site. 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom rents are calculated as the median for units available in the specified size and time period. Price changes are calculated using a “same unit” methodology similar to the Case-Shiller “repeat sales” home prices methodology, taking the average price change for units available across both time periods.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List’s Rent Reports cover rental pricing data in major cities, their suburbs, and their neighborhoods. We provide valuable leading indicators of rental price trends, highlight data on top cities, and identify the key facts renters should know. As always, our goal is to provide price transparency to America’s 105 million renters to help them make the best possible decisions in choosing a place to call home.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Atlanta's results from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters nationwide, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters across the country.

"Atlanta renters expressed general satisfaction with the city, with average or above average scores across most categories," says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “This city seems to be especially popular for young renters.”

Key findings in Atlanta include the following:

  • Atlanta renters give their city a B+ overall for satisfaction.
  • The city's renters give Atlanta a score of B+ for weather, state and local taxes, and cost of living. These are the city’s highest ratings.
  • Other well-rated aspects of the city were its access to major roads and freeways, and access to parks. Both of these received a B rating from Atlanta’s renters.
  • Renters here seem to be primarily concerned about the quality of local schools and safety (C+), as well as commute times. Toni G., a renter in Atlanta, shared: “I love how convenient/close it is to get anywhere but the traffic is always bad at all times of the day.”
  • Millennial renters seem to really enjoy living in Atlanta, giving it an above average rating of A- satisfaction overall. Renters who are parents gave the city an average satisfaction rating of C overall.
  • Renters in Savannah, GA gave the city an overall satisfaction rating of A-. Nashville, TN received a B+, and Charlotte, NC received an A-.
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.

Renters say:

  • “Atlanta is the land of opportunities. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone. The city isn’t too big or too small. Although the weather is so bipolar.” —Stefanii
  • “I appreciate the cost of living in my city…Since I am a senior, my income seems to go further, primarily because of lower taxes and rents, especially with the amenities you receive at many of the rental properties.” —Yvonne S.
