It is possible to find rooms in Atlanta, Georgia, by searching online listings of available rentals on Craigslist or Roomster. To find a safe place to live, research the desired neighborhood on a site such as Neighborhood Scout. Before scheduling a visit of available rentals, narrow your list to a few suitable properties, recommends Forbes. Find properties that fit your budget by factoring your estimated income, savings, expenses and debts in the property search, according to Zillow.
On Craigslist, filter available rooms in Atlanta by price, square footage, in-unit and building amenities, and pet policies. Preview rental details of posted rooms on the site to find a rental that fits your specific needs, and if you need to find a roommate, check the profiles of people looking for roommates.
If you plan to move into a rental with a friend, involve her in your rental search and evaluation of available rentals. Researching properties together saves time and helps you discuss rental details with a roommate to find suitable rooms, states Forbes. To avoid falling prey to a rental listing scam, physically verify the existence of rental space, and send money to a landlord or property manager only upon securing a lease, suggests Trulia. You can also find safe and popular neighborhoods in Atlanta by checking the Neighborhood Scout website, which details the crime statistics in a specific locality.
