Atlanta has been booming for many years, thanks to an influx of millennials and executives seeking better jobs and vibrant Southern city living. Due to a number of factors including a shortage of apartments and houses for rent and increasing demand, rents have been steadily rising, jumping a whopping 7.6% since 2015. The average rent for Atlanta apartments is $1,256, with one-bedrooms renting for $1,127 on average, according to data from Yardi Matrix.
