People want to feel safe in their communities — no matter where they live in Atlanta. 

But often, when properties are bought, it becomes a race to the highest rent rather than an investment in the people living there.

A landlord in southwest Atlanta noticed, just like in monopoly, that when searching for that place to call their own, it's a lot easier for people to feel safe on the expensive side of the board than over, where the rent is low, and the crime is high.
