November 2017 Decatur Rent Report

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

Decatur rents declined marginally over the past month

Decatur rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, but have increased sharply by 8.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Decatur stand at $1,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,160 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in August. Decatur's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.4%, as well as the national average of 2.7%.

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.

  • Douglasville has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 10.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,180, while one-bedrooms go for $1,020.
  • Over the past month, Roswell has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 0.9%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,380, while one-bedrooms go for $1,190.
  • Alpharetta has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,440; rents were up 0.4% over the past month and 4.0% over the past year.
  • Atlanta proper has the least expensive rents in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,170; rents decreased 0.1% over the past month but were up 2.4% over the past year.

Decatur rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased sharply in Decatur, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. 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 3.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.0% in Augusta and 0.2% in Columbus.
  • Decatur's median two-bedroom rent of $1,160 is equal to the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.7% over the past year compared to the 8.2% increase in Decatur.
  • While Decatur's rents rose sharply over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including DC (-0.6%) and New York (-0.2%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Decatur than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,070, 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.
