Caroline Huftalen has lived in Atlanta for six years, in the Cabbagetown-Reynoldstown area, specifically. She’s a writer and the marketing director for Seven Stages, a nonprofit theater company in Little Five Points. And recently, she had to move.
Huftalen had been renting a 700-square-foot unit in a condo building for $975 in the neighborhood, but this summer, building officials reinstated a two-year renting rule, forcing her out. Huftalen says she quickly learned $1,000 for a one bedroom apartment or studio didn’t go as far as it did a few years ago.
