Some Obvious (and Not-So-Obvious) Advice

A few things you should know before settling into the Augusta abode of your choosing …

  • Be prepared! When filling out a renter’s application, you’ll need the basics (you might be surprised how many people forget them!). You’ll need 2 forms of I.D., proof of income (have both your most recent paycheck stub and your final stub from the previous year), and (most importantly) a respectable credit/rental history.

  • Beggars can’t be choosers, but Augusta tenants can… Whether you want to live on Artist’s Row or in Summerville, along the banks of the Savannah River or in the comfy confines of North Augusta (traitor!), you can plan on having your pick of the apartment litter. Also, note that many facilities offer leases ranging between 1 and 15 months, so if you’re only in town for a short spell, you can still land a comfy pad in Augusta.

  • Explore the alternatives… We won’t bore you with too much data, but check this out: Roughly 60 percent of Augusta’s living quarters are single-family detached homes, but only 48 percent of these buildings are occupied by owners. In other words, if you’re not sure apartment life is your cup of tea, why not look into leasing a stately Southern mansion or a quaint little Bungalow instead? Plenty are available.

A Few Final Birdies and Bogeys

Much of the population lives in the ‘burbs and works in the city, so expect to experience a daily dose of rush hour traffic if you choose to take up residence in the outskirts and commute to work. City dwellers are more fortunate, as the Medical District and many other places of employment are within walking distance of their urban domiciles. The Augusta Public Transit, meanwhile, is available Monday through Saturday and makes 9 stops throughout the metropolitan area (cost is $1.25 for a one-way ride and $50 for a monthly pass).

Happy hunting!

September 2018 Augusta Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2018 Augusta Rent Report. Augusta rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Augusta rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Augusta rents declined moderately over the past month

Augusta rents have declined 0.3% over the past month, but have been relatively flat at 0.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Augusta stand at $640 for a one-bedroom apartment and $770 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in June. Augusta's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.8%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

Rents rising across cities in Georgia

Throughout the past year, rents have remained steady in the city of Augusta, but other cities across the entire state have seen rents increase. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Georgia, 8 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.8% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the state, Alpharetta is the most expensive of all Georgia's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,430; of the 10 largest cities in Georgia that we have data for, Columbus and Valdosta, where two-bedrooms go for $760 and $710, are the only two major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.3% and -0.1%).
  • Athens, Marietta, and Savannah have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.5%, 3.3%, and 2.9%, respectively).

Augusta rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

Rent growth in Augusta has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases; in contrast, rents in a few cities have actually declined. Augusta is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Augusta's median two-bedroom rent of $770 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.0% over the past year compared to the stagnant growth in Augusta.
  • While rents in Augusta remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.5%), San Francisco (+1.1%), and New York (+0.6%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,050, $3,100, and $2,510 respectively.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Augusta than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than four times the price in Augusta.

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.

Renter Confidence Survey

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Augusta’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.

"Augusta renters expressed general dissatisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "Some categories received above average scores, and many received below average scores."

Key findings in Augusta include the following:

  • Augusta renters gave their city a D overall.
  • The highest-rated categories for Augusta were affordability and commute time, which both received A+ grades.
  • The areas of concern to Augusta renters are quality of local schools, public transit and recreational activities, which all received F grades.
  • Augusta did relatively poorly compared to other cities in Georgia, including Atlanta (B), Savannah (B+) and Athens (B).
  • Augusta did relatively poorly compared to other cities nationwide, including Nashville, TN (A-), Austin, TX (A-) and Seattle, WA (B+).
  • 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:

  • "The city has everything you need. It has a small town feel but looks like a big city." – Brandon H.
  • "Small town. Everyone’s already married, so it’s not a great place for young adults. But it would be a great place to raise a kid." – Anon.
  • "Love the river and the downtown Augusta atmosphere." – Robert C.
  • "There’s a large military and medical presence. It’s within a couple hours’ drive to good hiking and bigger cities. It can be tough to find things to do on weekends that aren’t geared either to young families or getting drunk." – Katelyn R.
