What buildings are you looking at?? 1br/1ba here is anywhere from $1,500-$2,200. That’s nothing compared to HCOL cities. LA and Miami you’re not getting away under $3,000

Also, check out east Atlanta/cabbage town/ grant park. It’s a super cool area and definitely has some of the cheapest options for apartments

Honestly, it’s the biggest bubble in the country. Rent if you can, buyers beware

People have been saying this for years and that was even while interest rates were higher and there wasn’t a severe lag in new construction supply or construction cost increases. Im sure things will slow down a bit next year but this isn’t a bubble.

What part of town are you looking at? Atl rent is undoubtedly overpriced but in my experience it’s far cheaper than NY, Bos, SF.
