Finding pet friendly Atlanta apartments can be exhausting. How you search for apartment homes in Atlanta where your pets are welcome is important. Many great resources for locating pet accommodations in metro Atlanta exist online. National organizations such as the ASPCA have created a list of internet apartment search tools to help renters find Atlanta apartment communities where animals are welcome. Matching your pet with the perfect Atlanta property is the key to the happy lifestyle you and your pet deserve.
Local animal shelters are often helpful places to locate pet friendly apartments in Georgia as well as other areas where dogs are welcome, neighborhood parks for instance. Clayton County is home to several local and state parks excellent for recreation and dog walking in addition to apartment communities where pets are allowed. The Human Society offers referrals for Atlanta apartments that welcome pets too.
Start your search early! While these apartment hunting tools are available for Atlanta renters, finding an Atlanta apartment that accepts pets can take more time especially if you own an exotic pet or breed. Check with breed specific rescues to find out if they recommend any Atlanta apartments for rent. Be honest with the leasing staff about your pet needs to prevent you from facing lease violations and fines or worse – having to choose between your pet and your apartment home.

Make moving into Atlanta apartments less stressful. To help, start the night before the big move. Contact packers, movers, leasing staff and everyone involved the day before you move into your new apartment. Exchange contact information with each party including child or pet sitters and make sure to charge your cell phone overnight. Get a good night’s sleep.
Prior to moving, have the transportation route mapped out for all your helpers. Print your Atlanta apartment’s floor plan and draw a diagram of your furniture over it to assist your movers. Label all your boxes with the room where they belong and remember to label the rooms too.
Move-in day, wake up early! Be prepared by keeping a few things on hand, items like: snacks and beverages for movers, a first aid kit, daily medication, toilet paper and a little cash. Take responsibility for moving important documents and costly items yourself. Check with your new Atlanta apartment community for the best unloading location before the truck arrives!
Keep a positive attitude and be patient. Moving is not fun for anyone, but soon you will be on your way to enjoying apartments in Atlanta.
Residents often discuss the convenient flexible lifestyle of renting Atlanta apartments, but some advantages pay off in big savings! Renting a townhome or apartment can have certain financial benefits.
First, rent is consistent. A renter may expect the landlord to adjust the rent when a lease is renewed, but residents will pay the same monthly rent on their apartment rental. Unexpected emergencies and routine maintenance like lawn care and pest control are the sole responsibility of the owner. When you are buying a home and the roof starts to leak, you are responsible for costly repairs. Don’t expect the mortgage company or bank to help out!
Next is the matter of apartment amenities! All JAMCO apartments in Atlanta offer exclusive amenities that help residents keep more money in their pockets. Modern apartment rentals may include access to a fitness center and a swimming pool that will allow you to cancel your gym membership. Many of the properties owned by JAMCO also offer FREE Wi-Fi in their complimentary business centers, clubhouses and/or poolside!
Finally, there are the long term savings on apartments for rent. As we learned in 2008, the housing market changes. What if you must move to change jobs, to grow your family or some other reason? The market may not be in your favor when these major life events happen. Also, receiving a decent interest rate on a home mortgage requires a certain credit rating. Less than near perfect credit can increase your interest rate and add tens of thousands of dollars to the price of a home. You can save more over time if you rent an apartment until you improve your credit.
The Sweet Auburn Curb Market located near the heart of downtown Atlanta serves up flavor from all over. The historic municipal market rents space to restaurants dishing the best in Caribbean, Venezuelan, African, plus American soul and comfort food. The independently owned restaurants host downtown business people, the staff of local hospitals, Georgia State University students, and the city’s immigrant communities alike. The local hot spots below are open Mon. – Sat. and hours vary but the market closes at 6 p.m. daily.

Metro Deli Soul Food
Macaroni & cheese, enough said? Probably not. Metro Deli is locally owned and pleases the locals’ cravings for southern favorites. If you need something quick fresh deli sandwiches do the trick. This restaurant starts serving breakfast at 8 a.m.
Sweet Auburn BBQ
