Pros/Cons on Duluth?

Asked by Lance, Big Canoe, GA Wed Dec 12, 2007

We are looking at Duluth in the Abbott Bridge Place townhomes because of Northview High School. We noticed a lot of units are for sale. Is there anything that we should be aware of before looking there. Also looking at Abbott Falls townhomes. We would appreciate any suggestions for other areas within the Northview district. We are not restricted to townhomes but like the concept rather than a big yard.

Dear Lance,
Great Area to relocate. In reviewing the communities you mentioned it seems that there are a number of homes currently available due to job transfers and some that may be tied to subprime lending at Abbotts Bridge Place. The one thing to be aware of is that the condo/townhome market is currently trending downward with good opportunites if you plan to remain in the home for three to five years. Also be aware of what the monthly fees cover and what they do not ...along with any covenants and restrictions that run with the property. Are there going to be any increases in the fees and are there any one time charges for mandated improvements.
There are a number of single family homes in the area with small lots that would require limited maintenance in the school district. You may also want to consider what it would cost to hire a yard maintenance firm versus the cost of fees due to the condo association for similar services.

If I can be of any further service feel free to call me at your convenience @770-714-7077.

Sincerely,
