City Guide
Moving to Smyrna

Shopping for places to live in Smyrna isn't like picking off the healthy options menu at a fast food chain. You are certain to find a place that suits your needs, whether that be a three-bedroom house near Cobb Park or a studio apartment for rent near Rhyne Park.

Locating a Home to Rent

The good news is that the vacancy rate is around 10%, and roughly 46% of housing units are renter-occupied. Give yourself about two weeks to find a place. It is recommended to look in November and December as most leases in Smyrna begin and end in the first month of the year; anytime, though, is usually good. Along Atlanta Road, you'll mostly find businesses, but in the subdivisions and smaller streets, you'll discover ample housing choices.

Possible Complications to Consider

While you can easily locate all bills paid apartments, there are also tons of rental houses. If you go with a house, make sure you ask the landlord what is included in the rent price in order to avoid any disagreements. Moreover, about 38% of the housing units in Smyrna were built before 1980, and while the majority are devoid of any issues, you should check for any structural kinks or flaws with the appliances. After all, you know you didn't clog the toilet by tossing apple cores down there, but does your landlord?

Signing the Lease

So you have to finish up your rental contract and get to a concert in Atlanta, but it's important to get the lease complete first. Typically speaking, you need to be prepared to pay the first and last month's rent, a security deposit and realtor and application fees. Managed communities usually require proof of being able to make rent. Showing a credit score and references can simplify the process as well.

Smyrna Neighborhoods

Smyrna is a sprawling medium-sized city of 16 square miles. With that said, choosing where you want to live isn't like choosing where you want to sit at a Braves game. Be serious about this. It can make or break your Smyrna experience. Seriously!

Oakdale: Located right by Interstate-285, this neighborhood consists of lots of houses and eateries. Chef Chen Chinese Restaurant and Monterrey Mexican Restaurant serve up some tasty cuisine.

Gilmore: If you want to find apartments or condos for rent, you can't go wrong here. This convenient neighborhood is right near Cumberland Parkway Southeast.

Floyd Road Southwest/ Concord Road Southwest: You might feel the need to stay fit here with the Silver Comet Trail a stone's throw away.

City Center: Parks, eateries, businesses, bus stops, ample housing and whatever else you may need is right here.

Smyrna Heights: Enjoy parks and the residential feel of this neighborhood. White Oak Lake makes the area one of the most beautiful in the city.

Windy Hill Road Southeast/ Atlanta Road Southeast: Fox Creek Golf Club, Ward Park and shopping make this area a happening part of town.

Living in Smyrna

Traveling from place to place usually requires a car, as that is the preferred and most convenient mode of transportation in town, especially if you want to go play tourist in Atlanta. The bus system is used, too. When folks here aren't busy, though, they head out on foot to visit the town's shops, parks and restaurants. The city's atmosphere is best expressed at places like Brinkley Park, the festivals at Market Village and the action along South Cobb Drive. Take a walk along the Silver Comet Trails, and smell the jonquil flowers; the city is filled with them, and life here seems to move with their scent.

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.


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.
