That's a great way to go because you already know the home and the neighborhood. We still think you need some unbiased advice on the value of the home. You can't trust automatic home valuations on Trulia and Zillow because they are based only on computer algorithms. Realtors provide the best information about home values. It sounds like you're working this out with your landlord so you may not have the option of asking a realtor. ... more

The Folkston Drive in Medford Acres... commands slightly lower than the other streets in Medford Ac. But in general, fixer uppers have sold for around $100,000 with fixed up (those same 100K houses - 4 months, and 40K later) for about $160 - $180,000. In the past houses in this area sold for upwards of $200 - $250,000. The area is still doing good... If you are considering fixing a house up just make sure you get estimates before you put in an offer. There are some with a structural damage and are not good for amateur renovators - or quick flips.

Your agent can help you with this. Check out our webiste to learn more about Medford Acres and other popular neighborhoods, like Merry Oaks, Eastway Park and Sheffield Park that are nearby. Also... Windsor Park.

In my opinion the Plaza-Shamrock is an excellent choice for a home investment. You can get in at the price point you are comfortable with and your opportunity for equity growth is considerable...especially once the light rail is completed.

I have a small boutique real estate brokerage in NoDa, Progressive Urban Real Estate (PURE). My partner and I specialize in first time home buyers.

I would be happy to help you find just the right property if you would like to contact me. My cell number is 704 654 9995 or you can email me at

Hello Chris. I completely disagree. I am a former sales counselor for CP Morgan, my husband worked construction for them & I own a CP Morgan home. My home is now 2 years old & any minor problems that I have had (nothing out of the norm for new construction) have been fixed & I have had no major problems. I am VERY familiar with all of their plans, building process, & I know a large part of the staff. I will do my very best to get you the very best deal & of course the very best service. What neighborhood are you looking at?

Please let me know if you have any additional questions at all.
