Top 5 Atlanta Neighborhoods for Young Professionals

There are only 9 neighborhoods in Atlanta (out of 102) where most of adult residents are 35 years old or younger.

Today we will go over top 5 that are favored by young professionals.

Most young professionals rent, and on average stay around 5 years in the same neighborhood. That’s why we also included average starting rental prices and quality of apartment buildings in our analysis.

Young professionals stay the shortest period of time in Buckhead Forest (mostly between 3 and 4 years), which can be explained by the relatively high rental prices, although rating of apartment buildings there is high. Another factor could be that safety in the neighborhood is among the lowest in the city.

Here is the list of the top 5 of them based on the combined neighborhood score that includes safety, quality of schools, and demand for homes. You can view a more detailed neighborhood profile by clicking on each card:
