Within Atlanta proper, 69% of buildings have a gym, according to RentCafé.
“The rent difference between a property with a gym and the city average in Atlanta is a solid $103, which is to be expected in a large city with a more balanced mix of older and newer buildings,” RentCafé writes.
In 2010, 89% of new apartment buildings nationwide included a gym. That’s up from just 29% since the 1970s.
Workout facilities are among the most attractive amenities for renters, but it’s not a deal breaker in most cases. More than 70% of respondents to a RentCafé survey said they would still rent from a building without a gym and the majority of people aren’t willing to shell out additional cash in order to have an on-site gym.
