August 2019 Decatur Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Decatur Rent Report. Decatur rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Decatur rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Decatur rents increased moderately over the past month

Decatur rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 2.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Decatur stand at $1,037 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,198 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Decatur's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.1%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the Atlanta Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Decatur, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Atlanta metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Lawrenceville has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.1%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,384, while one-bedrooms go for $1,198.
    • Over the past month, Newnan has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 0.5%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,208, while one-bedrooms go for $1,046.
    • Alpharetta has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,487; rents were up 0.7% over the past month and 4.1% over the past year.
    • Atlanta proper has the least expensive rents in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,203; rents grew 0.3% over the past month and 1.6% over the past year.

    Decatur rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased moderately in Decatur, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Decatur is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Rents increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Georgia as a whole logging rent growth of 2.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.1% in Augusta and 1.4% in Columbus.
    • Decatur's median two-bedroom rent of $1,198 is slightly above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 2.2% increase in Decatur.
    • While Decatur's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Austin (+3.3%), Charlotte (+2.2%), and Dallas (+2.1%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Decatur than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,126, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Decatur.

    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.

    Overview of Findings

    Apartment List has released Decatur’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.

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

    Key findings in Decatur include the following:

    • Decatur renters gave their city an F overall.
    • The highest-rated categories for Decatur were affordability and state and local taxes, which both received B grades.
    • The areas of concern to Decatur renters are recreational activities (D) and commute time (F).
    • Decatur did relatively poorly compared to other cities in Georgia, including Atlanta (B), Lawrenceville (A-) and Athens (B).
    • Decatur did relatively poorly compared to other cities nationwide, including Miami, FL (C+), New York, NY (C+) and Los Angeles, CA (C+).
    • 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:

    • "It’s very cosmopolitan, with great food and retailers, yet a big suburban setting." – Anon.
    • "Decatur is extremely walkable and so safe! There are many cute coffee shops and cocktail bars. Really something for everyone!" – Lauren H.
    • "There are two different sides of Decatur, east or west of Ponce de Leon. West of Ponce features new shopping centers, night life, and a mix of new and older homes and apartments. Near a good university and very cosmopolitan. East of Ponce is less diverse and has older housing, but is close to expressways and public transportation." – Imogene H.
    • "I live in a decent neighborhood with friendly neighbors, but I don’t care for the schools or the traffic." – Raquel T.
