According to the Pew Research Center, homeownership among those 35-years-old and younger fell by 18% from 2006 to 2016. In the same time frame, the percentage of renters nationwide increased from 31.2% to a nearly historic high of 36.6%. Why are so many choosing to rent over buying their home?
In Atlanta, the prices of houses are up, while sales are down, making inexpensive housing hard to find. Simultaneously, the population of the area is increasing, while there is a shortfall in homebuilding. Here are a few reasons why you should instead consider renting a studio, one, or two bedroom apartment home at our luxury apartments in North Atlanta:
Not sure if you are going to be in one place for long? Are you needing more time to find a home to buy? It may be a better option to rent and skip the logistics of trying to sell or buy a home. At the Collection, our leases range from seven to fourteen months. There is an added convenience of a month-to-month lease that goes in effect after the initial lease comes due. This way, renters have more flexibility to do what feels comfortable on their own terms.
It is a well-known perk that renters don’t deal with maintenance issues directly or financially. Homeowners face the responsibility and financial burden of maintaining a home. This includes small issues that can be fixed with the help of your personal toolbox, and large, expensive issues like a cracked foundation. Let’s not forget the unpleasantness of having to mow the yard or clean the pool.
Residents at The Collection are saved the headache of having to find a repairman, scheduling a time to meet, and maybe even having to take time off work. Leaky faucet? Our maintenance crew will take care of it! Just contact the office via phone, email, or resident portal.
More Luxury, Less Hassle
Renters rest easy at The Collection, where a prime location and high-end amenities meet to create a luxury lifestyle.
Residents enjoy spacious bedrooms, extravagant walk-in closets with custom wood shelving, and expansive 10’ ceilings that make any layout open and welcoming. Kitchens feature the finest granite countertops with elegant designer backsplash, stainless-steel appliances, tall tub dishwashers, and custom cabinetry. Our bathrooms include ceramic tile surrounds in the tub and shower, granite countertops, and designer undermount sinks. The classic sophistication of authentic, hand-scraped hardwood floors can be found throughout living spaces.
Our community includes unique amenities, like a convenient on-site pet park, that sets it apart from the experience of homeownership. While it may take more time or money than a home owner is interested in spending to build and maintain, The Collection has a resort-style pool complete with expansive tanning areas, interactive water features, and LED lighting. Renters will have many more workout options than homeowners without a gym membership at our fully-equipped wellness center with specialized Technogym® cardio and strength training machines and free weights.
