Forest Park: (Almost) Affordable Luxury

Let's begin by clarifying our definition of luxury. We are not talking mansions in Long Island or condos in the Hamptons; but Forest Park has its fair share of luxurious, all-bills-paid apartments at affordable rentals. Even as the city has emerged as a favorable residential area in the past few years, apartments don't exactly sell like hotcakes here. Not even inexpensive hotcakes. Which is good for you, as it makes apartment searching a heck of a lot easier.

There are several apartment complexes down Morrow Drive, Old Dixie Highway and near Downtown. Not only do these complexes have a variety of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, some of these also come with swimming pools, club houses, racquetball courts and other amenities. Now you might question the decision of staying in an apartment complex in a suburban area. Doesn't the main city have enough of these, anyway? Fair enough. If you are looking for a more homelyapartment, you can find one with a backyard and front lawns where your kids can spend their evenings hopscotching and jump-roping. Such single family apartment homes are available at Morrow Road and Cypress Drive among others. Morrow Road and Old Dixie Highway are popular among people as they have some of the city's best restaurants including Piece of Wally and Bojangles Forest Park. Not just that, these neighborhoods are just a 10-minutes drive from Jonesboro Road, which is where the most happening places of Forest Park are.

Not Just Another Small Town

Forest Park isn't just another run-of-the-mill small town with a farmers market and a famous fort. The city has been awakened to the call of the future and boasts miniature golf courses, tennis courts, and football stadiums. Perfect for fitness freaks and those obsessed sports fanatics. Not to mention, you can go for the gold at Clayton County International Park, the site of the 1996 Summer Olympics. And don't forget the 6-acre swimming lake and a beach, among other hotspots. Rest assured, you won't be forced to spend all your weekends in the swimming pool at your posh apartment. That's precisely why Forest Town is not just another small town--it is so much more. Explore the city for yourself once you settle down here!

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.
