Drop me an email when that "transition" occurs...I've been appraising frauds and flips in there since '93. Until something serious is done about the fraud so common in the city, the 4th and so many of the other "transitional" and "up and coming" areas of Atlanta will be mired in the mud. It's so bad that in many neighborhoods I can't even find close to reliable data. Yet and still I see "sales" for 200K-300K that end up with foreclosure appraisals of 10K-20K....and no one is held to task.
I'd be real careful with any of these "transitioning" areas.
