Ht, agents are not allowed to comment on 'safe'. It's best to research the neighborhood, check with the local police regarding stats and spend some time in that neighborhood. Ask neighbors, check offender websites, and gather info from trusted resources.... more
There are certain parts of Kirkwood that are more transitional than others, and usually home prices reflect that. I believe that no matter what "part" of Kirkwood you're buying in, that you'll enjoy a nice appreciation later down the line. In my opinion it may be a better investment to buy in the more transitional areas for less... it's a not a HUGE neighborhood, and it's been heading in "the right direction" for quite some time now. I think the style and quality of your home in this neighborhood is much more important than the location.
I hope that this was helpful. If you need a Realtor to guide you and represent you through your transaction, please don't hesitate to contact me!

You want it - you know it - write the offer.
The park is really nice and my daughter and I are at the playground, along with hundreds of other parents and children, at all hours of the waking day.
The houses nearby, particularly along the perimeter streets, are pretty popular, when priced right.
I have a 3/2 for sale on Delano that we just got under contract a few days ago - took about 90 days on market, but it was at the higher end of the price range to meet current demand in the neighborhood.
The desirability, crime, neighbors question is all yours - get over it - buy in Kirkwood. Kirkwood has been cool for a decade or more.

You could list it with RKiHomes! HA.
What is so unusual about it and where do you currently have it listed? Call me at 770.300.0023, I'm the internet marketing and operations manager so I might be able to give you some pointers and/or suggestions.
The Spring Fling is always a great "shot in the arm" from a home selling standpoint. It is generally attended not only by local neighbors, but by thier freinds and family along with other people who are interested in the Kirkwood community. Kenny Cook Realty typically ends up selling 3-4 homes to leads that came to us through the event.
Be sure to stop by the Kenny Cook Realty Booth at tomorrow's Spring Fling and enter our FREE raffle for a chance to win a stainless steel Char Broil Commercial Line gas grill valued at over $300. We will be located near the intersection of Ridgedale and Norwood.
We will also have TONS of give-aways including pens, sunscreen & first aid kits, balloons for the kids and Kenny Cook Realty T-Shirts while they last!
Of course, as Kirkwood's top listing brokerage in 2007, we will also have information on the many great homes in Kirkwood that are for sale and our knowledgeable & experience agents will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about buying or selling a home in the 'hood!
We hope to see all of our wonderful neighbors and friends! See link below for directions and stuff:... more
Have you had your agent set you up with a custom gateway on FMLS? That would provide you with new listings (and price changes) the day after they are entered into the computer so you can check them out quickly and get your offer in ahead of the competition.... more
Sounds like FUN Sean! Seems like this 'drought' keeps messing with Atlanta's neighborhood's festivals and events. The Grant Park Springfling was rain-out twice and is now re-scheduled for May 17 and in conjunction with Grant Parks's 125 year celebration. Should be fun through-out Atlanta!... more
Unless it is purchased on the courthouse steps, the bank that took the home back will eventually put it back up for sale, but it could take anywhere from a few weeks to months before that happens. If you're sure this is the home you want, you or your Realtor can run down the bank that owns it through the courthouse records. You may be able to arrange to purchase it by contacting the asset manager for the
banks that has it.
If you don't have Realtor that is familiar with the foreclosure market, I suugest you contact Rick Hale & Associates. They are a Keller Wiliams team that specializes in that market. I have some experience with foreclosures, but they'll know better how to proceed.
Good Luck!... more
Not necessarily, my neighborhood, Kirkwood is still a street by street, house by house, immediate neighbor by immediate neighbor neighborhood. That means, prices are not going back up overall, and that means that some streets, like certain stretches of Howard, or Ridgedale and Lakeview, have not really had a problem with a freefall.
Some streets are not good streets for wonderful residential living either.
Too high for "most"? "Again"? Who is advising you?
Kirkwood is relatively one of the most affordable Intown neighborhoods - from Cabbagetown to Kirkwood, all of the Eastside neighhborhoods, from downtown to the Decatur border, are remarkably more "affordable" square foot for square foot, than the other Eastside neighborhoods north of the CSX line and the MARTA tracks.
What are you looking for for? How soon do you want to purchase it? How do you plan to pay for it? How much earnest money do you have?
Call me if you want to get a great deal in Kirkwood, or better yet, how about something in Decatur Terrace if you really, really want some value and you want it in "unincorporated" Dekalb. It's 5 minutes East and it's a cool little enclave close to everything that Kirkwood and Oakhurst are close to.
