Hank's comment got a thumbs up from me. He says be careful - I say, at Cross Creek, there is a trade off after you make the careful decision to buy there - you may trade something that may be more valuable to you than you want to trade.
What's your trade off?
For most of my clients who have seen the myriad of choices at Cross Creek over the past 8 years, the trade off is usually one of three items:
1. low purchase price BUT, HOA fees and monthly costs are higher than alternatives
2. decent overall community with lots of green space and a classic, mid-century kitsch BUT, some folks don't need golf course, an on site bar / clubhouse or for that matter 24/7 gated security
3. buying here is a long term commitment that could work well for some homeowners who like the country living in the city convenience, BUT buying here with a short term commitment, even for flippers who are buying "as is" vintage units and fixing them up, is fraught with financial imbalances.
Cross Creek has some good real estate fundamentals - Cross Creek also has some bad real estate fundamentals...
Check out the flooding video from 2009.
Be very very careful where you buy an condo in Atlanta, this market is saturated and will be for years to come.
Like many communities and properties, it suffered during the downturn in the real estate and economy. It is also coming back! The foreclosure inventory has been sold. Prices are rising with many well maintained and updated units selling at prices not seen in years with multiple offers. There will still be a wide range in pricing on similarly sized units based on upgrades. Some older units need a good deal of interior and systems updating to command market prices. The community is always in demand, but like anyplace it's important to do your research.
I also own in and sell Cross Creek, feel free to contact me.
Hope that helps!

I have just sold a property in Cross Creek and have 2 for sale there, so I'm sure I can help you. The residents I know there are very happy with the location and best amenities inside the city. The property I sold was bought by a client who already lives in Cross Creek, and who just wanted a different floor plan.
I hope you contact me right away and I look forward to assisting you in your home buying.

The difference in the price range is due to some of the units are Townhomes, Flats.
The HOA are appox about $300 to $400. I will double check, I know a very close friend who lives in the complex. I think the complex is well maintain, its offer Golf Course, 3 pools, Gym and Resturant, which the food is excellent. Its older complex. I do not think that you will make a bad choose if you purchase in that complex. C the units are very large. 1bdrm come with a closed in sun room with french doors. My friend has a 2bdrm and she has a living room, dinning, closed in sun room and 2 full bath rooms. Like the fact that the show and stall is separate from the vanity sinks in each bath. While in the shower someone can be brushing their teeth and using the vanity section, while you still have your privacy.
The complex offers great security, you cant not enter the complex without showing id, and telling them what address and person you are visiting.

I've shown several homes in Cross Creek, various floor plans, prices and condition. HOA fees vary based on home size, i.e. larger floor plans will have a higher priced HOA. Other communities have same HOA structure regardless of floor plan.
