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 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.
