Hank is correct, this area is rampant with foreclosures. $17,900 seems to be about as low as you can pay for a home these days. But, keep in mind that there are other homes in the area that are selling in a similar price point. So, if your goal is to flip the property and make a quick buck, you may not be able to do that.
Pure location... Take a look at the crime rate for the area. Click here for local crime rates around this property. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/ga/atlanta/hamilton-e-holmes-dr/
But again, it depends on what you are looking for with the property...
Hope this helps..
