City GuideFairburn
Talk about a triple play. Any baseball fan knows that the game's rarest event is a bang-bang, rapidly evolving "triple kill" when three players are declared "out" in the same play - an event that unfolds in a virtual heartbeat before a spectator realizes what's happening. Not so when it comes to Fairburn, Georgia's historical name game. In 1833, it was first tagged with the handle of "Cartersville," then "Berryville" and subsequently Fairburn - all over a period of years. For sure, those sett...

Fairburn is a southwest Fulton County suburb of the sprawling urban center of Atlanta. The city's proud slogan is "History Lives Here." A first-time visitor's initial look-see at the downtown area produces an immediate throwback vibe to the good old historic times of days gone by. Fairburn's downtown area has been designated as a Commercial Historic District that's listed in the National Register of Historic Places. As further signs of yesteryear, the Old Campbell County Courthouse and the out of date, currently unused rail depots sum up the distinguished heritage that's so evident here.

Putting a Move on Fairburn

If you still haven't made up your mind where to relocate in the greater Atlanta area, a must-do on your search itinerary has to include a feel-good visit to Fairburn, especially if you're into an eye-opening, throwback taste of historic, nostalgic times. If you settle on the area, you might wish to sample living there before committing to a stressful real estate purchase. An apartment for rent in Fairburn, or a nice, quaint three-bedroom house for rent if you're with family, is quite do-able in this neck of the woods. You can find an apartment online by searching the region's ample real estate websites or alternatively, you can source places for rent through local newspaper classifieds. Renting is an excellent way to avoid biting off more than you can chew before thoroughly acclimating to a new neighborhood by means of plunging into an immediate homestead purchase.

Air transportation that'll get you there in a jiffy is via the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, purported to be the busiest airport in the world in terms of flight traffic. It's a mere 15 minutes, 11 miles' drive away to Fairburn, mostly by way of connection with Interstate 85. Man, what a contrast! From the modern day world's most active airport to a chock full of history-laden small burg in just a scant stone's throw quarter of an hour travel time. Doesn't get any better than that!

Once you get there, you'll need proper documentation to secure your rental digs. Photo ID (such as a driver's license), work history and prior workplace and landlord character references should do the trick nicely.

Neighborhoods

There are several neighborhoods within the Fairburn confines. Like most cities and towns, they typically vary based on real estate property evaluations. Fireside Heights is one of the more modestly priced 'hoods. Foxwood has a good cross-section of mid-priced dwellings. If high-end patches of turf tickle your fancy, check out Northridge and Country Lake.

Living There

Popular attractions in and around the Fairburn area include the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Atlanta Botanical Garden and the Civil War Museum -- which is in keeping with the area's ongoing commitment to historic preservation. The annual Georgia Renaissance Festival begins mid-April and offers a great opportunity to kick-back and unwind in an outdoor themed event that stays true to Fairburn's storied cultural heritage.

    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.
