That land is owned by the city and is referred to as the "parkway". I am not sure that there is anything you can do about it. I find it amazing that these people do not clean up after thier pets.... more

Nobody can tell you what your condo is worth without seeing it. Andersonville, as you know, is a hot area, and each unit changes one to the next. The condition, the ambiance, the location within the building.
Contact a few local agents and have them come give you a Comparative Market Analysis of your property and what it might be worth on today's market.... more
If you are working with a buyers agent they should be able to provide you with that information. If you are not working with a buyers agent you should consider getting one. If any agents give you advice on this that are not workin with you they are opening themselves up to unnecessary liability. I doubt you are going to get the answers you desire.... more
Market times in Edgewater Beach and other areas are tremendously skewed. There is an abundance of 1 bedroom condos on the market and that is mainly due to the very large numbers of short sale and foreclosed listings. The majority of the buyers go after these properties first with the hope of getting the best deal. This leaves the home owner that has a need to sell but is not in a distressed position increased market times. It's a sad situation but one that thousands are dealing with locally and nationally.... more
Here are some ideas:
Mass email a digital flyer of your property to broker offices in the area with your broker's open date
Since you will be handling your end of the transaction, for the sake of exposure only, put your listing on the MLS through flat fee listing service -- highlight broker's open date on the MLS
Hold a general open house advertised on Craigslist and the paper. Put plenty of signage near property and make sure to highlight in ads and on signs: "BUYER AGENTS WELCOME!"... more
Everyone has a somewhat different set of criteria to define 'a nice place for a family'. What I might think about it might be very different from what you think. It is not a right or wrong answer usually. R E agents are not allowed to talk about 'safety' issues or levels of crime etc as that could be construed as violating various Federal anti discrimination laws like 'steering'. Our standard answer to such questions tend to be something like.....check with the police department for crime statistics. There is a ton of information 'on line' for school statistics.
There are lots of stores etc, but are they the type of stores etc that YOU are interested in? I think you should spend some time walking/driving/biking around the neighborhood at various times of the day/evening etc to get a better feel for it. You should also talk with friends/family/coworkers to get their input. I do not think real estate agents are a good source for this.
My experience has been that most people do not move into a neighborhood for which they are not very familiar if they plan to spend a long time there. If you would like some housing statists as to what prices are like, inventory, etc let me know and I can send them to you. There are some rather pricey upscale parts of Edgewater, perhaps like the Southport Corridor, perhaps not.
