Top 5 Best Towns for Renters in Fulton County

Finding an apartment or a home in Fulton County isn't really that difficult, there are rentals available throughout the major city of Atlanta as well as in all of the outer areas of the city. The best towns for renters typically provide adequate transportation, ease of access into the city and offer recreational activities and entertainment close to home. Finding the right town for your needs all depends on what you're looking for.

Are you looking for a home that's affordable with low rent? Do you need to live really close to the big city? Would you prefer a home in an area that has a suburban feel yet remains close to it all? All of these factors will go into determining which town is right for you. Fortunately, Fulton County has a little bit of something for everyone!


There are a number of apartment communities and homes for rent in the Alpharetta area and many of them offer affordable elegance. Renters with children should especially look into renting a home in Alpharetta as this area has some of the best schools in the state. The area is rather affordable featuring apartments in the price range of about $800 per month and up.


Located relatively close to it all yet set apart, Roswell has been growing rather significantly in the past five years or so and continues to attract renters and home buyers to the area.

This area is generally safe, in fact, Roswell has been ranked one of the top 20 safest cities in the United States so if you're looking for a laid back environment that is safe and close to the city, this may be the choice for you.

College Park

Many of the homes in College Park have been renovated and are now offered for rent by investors. While the crime rate in the area is a little bit higher than certain other parts of the Atlanta metro area, College Park does have its benefits to renters, especially if you're looking to move somewhere that you can easily commute into the city. The commute into Atlanta will take about an hour during rush hour but the drive isn't so bad outside of those busy times. This area has true historic charm.


Located in Northwest Fulton County, Milton is a moderately priced community that welcomes renters and offers historic charm. The area was once a county of its own, Milton County, but is today considered a part of unincorporated northwest Fulton County. Milton has a number of local restaurants and bars as well as a Golf and Country Club if you're looking for a relaxing day on the greens.


If you don't want to travel into the city, why not rent directly in the heart of it all? While renters may find that the pricing in the city is rather high, the time and effort that is saved on not having to commute and on having everything conveniently located is well worth it to some. Crime rates are higher in the city so this is something to lookout for but there is public transportation, an abundance of entertainment and plenty of job opportunities which make Atlanta a prime location for renters.
