Owners.com Ranks Affordable Atlanta Neighborhoods for Growing Families

Owners.com, an innovative online real estate brokerage, today released data ranking neighborhoods in Atlanta for growing families. With many families looking to get into a home before the start of the next school year, Owners.com tapped into insights from its Senior Manager of Brokerage Services based in Atlanta, Phil Karp, as well as a variety of other data sources –including home prices, school systems, household dynamics, income and affordability, crime rates and outdoor activities – to uncover top neighborhoods to consider.

Many of the neighborhoods considered have a high percentage of households with kids under 18 and relatively affordable homes. They offer residents access to great outdoor activities and many educational and kid-friendly attractions throughout the city.

Methodology

The Owners.com® Senior Manager of Brokerage Services Phil Karp identified neighborhoods for growing families. For each neighborhood, the Owners.com data team evaluated the areas based on seven metrics, including average home price, quality of schools, average household size, percentage of households with kids under 18, home affordability, crime rate and how suitable the neighborhood is for outdoor activities. The percentage of households with children under 18 was weighted against the U.S. average, while home affordability, crime rate and school quality were weighted against the city average. The neighborhoods were then ranked from most to least affordable, with lower scores indicating better affordability.
