City Guide

Kennesaw
Kennesaw, Georgia

Welcome to Kennesaw, Georgia, a suburb that’s part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. Let’s take a look at some of these apartments for rent and find you your dream home!

Kennesaw is located about 25 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta (approximately a 99-hour drive during rush hour). Originally established as Big Shanty, which, true to its name, was basically a derelict camps for railroad workers, the city has now become one of the most desirable suburbs in the Atlanta area

Why? Well, there are a couple reasons. Kennesaw is chock full of shopping, dining and entertainment options, even when you don’t take into account all of the similar shops and restaurants in adjacent cities and in Atlanta itself.

You’ll find a number of great apartments located in the city center. Newer developments along Barrett Lakes Road provide some of the best amenity options in town, including gyms, pools and clubhouses. Rents here generally range from $700-$1000.

Homeowners dominate the neighborhoods to the south of the city center. Here there are still a number of apartments and rental homes available in more suburban-feeling developments in quiet, established neighborhoods. Two bedrooms here go for $650-$850.

You’ll find the highest concentration of young people to the east of the city center around the Kennesaw State University’s campus. While this area does have more bars, parties and noise issues than other neighborhoods, it’s still a great destination for young singles. There are many inexpensive apartments available, as well as studio apartments for rent. Since this is a student-centric area, short-term leases are much more available here than anywhere else.

Finding a pet-friendly apartment can be a bit of a challenge in Kennesaw, though. While there are many landlords and management companies that welcome responsible pet owners, some newer buildings, as well as complexes on campus, do not allow dogs or cats. Keep your chin up and keep looking, champ! Finding a home for your four-legged friends is not totally impossible; it just requires much more leg work.

So welcome to Kennesaw! Enjoy all this Atlanta suburb has to offer!

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

    December 2020 Kennesaw Rent Report

    Welcome to the December 2020 Kennesaw Rent Report. Kennesaw rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Kennesaw rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

    Kennesaw rents increase sharply over the past month

    Kennesaw rents have increased 0.6% over the past month, and have increased significantly by 5.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Kennesaw stand at $1,276 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,472 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in May. Kennesaw's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.1%, as well as the national average of -1.3%.

      Rents rising across the Atlanta Metro

      Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Kennesaw, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Atlanta metro, 8 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

      • Canton has the least expensive rents in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,104; additionally, the city has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro over the past month (1.7%).
      • Over the past year, Atlanta proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.7%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,188, while one-bedrooms go for $1,181.
      • Alpharetta has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Atlanta metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,585; rents grew 0.9% over the past month but fell 0.6% over the past year.

      Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Kennesaw

      As rents have increased significantly in Kennesaw, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Kennesaw is less affordable for renters.

      • Georgia as a whole has logged 2.1% year-over-year decline, while other cities across the state have seen rents significantly on the rise. For example, rents have grown by 7.5% in Augusta and 4.6% in Columbus.
      • Kennesaw's median two-bedroom rent of $1,472 is above the national average of $1,095. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 5.4% increase in Kennesaw.
      • While Kennesaw's rents rose significantly over the past year, the city of Memphis also saw an increase of 6.1%.
      • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Kennesaw than most large cities. For example, Columbus has a median 2BR rent of $926, where Kennesaw is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

      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.
