Atlanta Area Rental Rates Spiral Upward

Rental rates have continued to spiral upward across metro Atlanta during the summer months. Average median rental rates in July were 20% higher in some suburban Atlanta areas when compared to a year earlier. Two bedroom rental rates in Marietta and Duluth were up 20%, while one bedroom rates increased over 18% in Alpharetta. Continued population growth in the area has fueled the higher rental rates.
