Rising Rents

New, 18 comments

An AJC article about the "sticker shock" of rents in metro Atlanta's most sought-after areas sheds light on some serious inflation that's happened in the last year. Rents in Atlanta proper have climbed nearly 7 percent (about triple the national average), bumping up the cost of average two-bedroom apartments to $1,290. But that's small potatoes compared to skyrocketing rents in Sandy Springs (up 11 percent) and the most expensive neighborhood in the land, Buckhead Village, where two-bedroom rents were averaging a bitter $2,620 in April.
