Still, Atlanta rent has declined over the last month, dropping 0.4%. And rent in the city is better than most large US cities, according to Apartment List's Atlanta Rent Report. Despite marginal rises in Atlanta's rates, rent in Austin, Texas rose 3.1% this year. Increases were also seen in Charlotte, N.C. at 2.6% and Dallas at 2.2%. And Atlantans can find more reasonable rates than residents of San Francisco, which has a median two-bedroom rent of $3,088. That's over two-and-a-half times the rent in Georgia's capital.
Across Georgia, rent increased by 1.6% in the last year. On average, one-bedrooms are $882 a month and two-bedrooms are $1,040.

Apartment List gathered its data using median rent statistics from the US Census Bureau which is extrapolated forward to the current month via a growth rate. That growth rate is calculated from Apartment List's listing data. The apartment-finder app "corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources," according to the website. This is said to allow the company to produce results that are more in line with the Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
