Rents have been fallen in Atlanta since the pandemic but seem to on the rise again. Yet it is still a good time to find an affordable rental in Atlanta, with the average rent of a two bedroom apartment being ~$1200. However, the neighborhood you’ll move into can have a significant impact on the cost of rent. Neighborhoods like Midtown, Home Park, Inman, Brookwood or Marietta offer an average rent of between $2,800 to $2,200 for a two bedroom apartment. Compared to ~$1,800 for a one bedroom apartment in these neighborhoods. So by having a roommate, you can still live in the more expensive areas, but save money on rent. For around $1,700 for a two bedroom, you could live in Grant Park, Blandtown, Peachtree, Wildwood or Piedmont Heights. For much lower rents, you can find neighborhoods like Loring Heights, Summer Hill or Vine City. If you don’t want to stress about making rent while still being able and take advantage of everything Atlanta offers, having a roommate is a good idea.
