May 2020 Decatur Rent Report

Welcome to the May 2020 Decatur Rent Report. Decatur rents declined 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.

Currently, median rents in Decatur stand at $1,024 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,183 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in October of last year. Decatur's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.7%, as well as the national average of 1.4%.

    Rents rising across the Atlanta Metro

    While rent prices have decreased in Decatur over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 6 of the largest 10 cities in the Atlanta metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    Decatur rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have fallen slightly in Decatur, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Decatur is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Other cities across the state have seen rents moderately increase, with Georgia as a whole logging rent growth of 0.7% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 4.0% in Augusta and 1.7% in Columbus.
    • Decatur's median two-bedroom rent of $1,183 is slightly below the national average of $1,196. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 0.2% decline in Decatur.
    • While rents in Decatur fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Austin (+2.5%), Seattle (+1.8%), and Dallas (+1.7%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Decatur than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,094, 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.
