Rent to own Homes in Atlanta, GA

The city of Atlanta got its name from the Western and Atlantic Railroad. In the early 1800s, it was a small town with limited growth expectations. It became a transportation hub as the railroad worked to expand its lines westward, which brought an influx of opportunists looking to capitalize on the business opportunities available in a sprouting locale. The rest is history-the city continued to explode to its current population of nearly 500,000 residents.

It's no wonder that Atlanta is ranked number 13 on Forbes' list of best places for business and careers. Famously known as the Coca-Cola capital of the world, Metro Atlanta is also home to Delta Airlines, UPS, Home Depot, SunTrust Bank, and a dozen other Fortune 500 companies.
