As with all things future, even we REALTORS(R) have no crystal balls, nor should we say that property can be resold "at a profit" later. Your realtor should be able to provide you with statistics on the area showing you what various size homes have sold for on average over time. From those stats you could then base your opinion on what the future holds, but as in all investments, historical performance doesn ot guarantee future performance.
There are many factors that influence a home's price or an area's price: economic conditions, environmental conditions, crime activity etc. and none of these are controllable nor predictable.
I am currently in the market for a townhome. There maybe comparable homes for sale but some people like townhome living because of the low maintenance factor. I am also looking for any information I can find on the Green Bridge Creek SD. I want to know if the builder did a good job building these townhomes before I invest $300+ on an inspection.
Roy Lee can you tell me if you have viewed any of these townhomes before?
The historic district is getting a major overhaul in the next few years, so developments that are close to that should see a big bump. The changes will take several years however, so unless you're willing to wait 5 to 10 years, then I would just buy what you want.
I know where Oakland Downs is, but I don't know where the other one is. In general, if you are buying a townhome in Lawrenceville, you want to be as close to 120, 20, Sugarloaf or Old Norcross as possible. Those are your main thoroughfares. I don't like Townhomes in Lawrenceville, simply because 9 times out of 10 you can find a single family home for the same price. Townhomes in this area are stagnating in many cases, especially those just north/east of historic Lawrenceville.
