Gentrification research for the past 50 years is determined to lack analysis of the holistic effects of gentrification. Atlanta, GA is used as a study area to examine how proximity to gentrification has spillover effects based on the surrounding housing market. Median home value is analyzed to be positively affected by gentrification in nearby areas after accounting for changes in housing, socioeconomic, and spatial variables from 2000-2009. This finding is careful to point out what issues future research needs to address, but establishes the need for debates on gentrification to include effects beyond the borders of gentrified neighborhoods. Overall, gentrification research is prompted to incorporate more comprehensive information into current and past debates on issues such as government sponsored gentrification and displacement.
