Getting a Place in Stone Mountain

Don't count on that good ol' southern hospitality alone to get you a Stone Mountain apartment. Come ready with your last couple paycheck stubs or bank statements to prove your income. Also, you will be filling out a rental application most assuredly, so bring information on references and your previous rental history. If you are really serious about nailing down that sweet Stone Mountain studio apartment, bring along a background check and recent credit check as well.

There is only one season to consider when contemplating moving to Stone Mountain, and that is tourist season. Driving a rental truck full of everything you own could be a bit stressful when byways are filled with out-of-town gawkers, but average low temperatures duck just below freezing in January and hover around 90 degrees in the summer. Finding that perfect time in either the spring or the fall might be best if you must have nice weather to move.

Choosing a Community in Stone Mountain

Even though it is a community of only 5,800, Stone Mountain still offers a number of vibrant communities to cater to even the most discerning potential Stone Mountain resident.

Smoke Rise: This is Stone Mountain's northern neighborhood. This community is home to the Smoke Rise Country Club, considered one of the best private country clubs in the Atlanta area. Housing around this area is much like you would expect near a private country club, with multiple-bedroom homes and premier apartments.

Parker Woods: This community lies on the east side of the mountain, with convenient access to Highway 78, making this a popular spot for those who are working in Atlanta but choose a more quiet, suburban lifestyle. Parker Woods benefits from its proximity to Lake Lucerne as well, making it a popular neighborhood for families.

The Southlands: As the name implies, this neighborhood lies to the south of the Stone Mountain community. Even though it is still quite suburban, the Southlands maintains an urban feel and features many newer homes.

City Center: This neighborhood envelopes much of the mountain as well as the historic downtown section of Stone Mountain. This serves as a sort of melting pot for the community, and apartments are more prevalent here, but you may still find some house rentals available.

Living in Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain is part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. In the middle of it all is the actual Stone Mountain, offering all the opportunity to recreate. The park is located on 3,200 acres, and runs all year round, functioning as a summer destination when it is warm and a winter playground when the snow flies. As could be expected, the mountain is a major lifestyle factor for residents of Stone Mountain. You do not need to be the outdoorsy type to blend in successfully with the community, but it might not hurt.

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.
