CONDO OWNER
MUSEUM TOWER

AFTER LOOKING AT HORIZON CONDOS ACOSS THE ROAD FROM THE NEW BRAVES STADIUM IN COBB COUNTY, OVERLOOK ON THE HILL ABOVE VININGS ALSO IN COBB COUNTY, 1010 PEACHTREE, LUXE ON 12TH STREET I FOUND MUSEUM TOWER TO BE THE BEST FOR SPECTACULAR VIEWS, GREAT AMENITIES AND A PERFECT LOCATION FOR WALKING TO LOCAL ATTRACTIONS LIKE THE GA AQUARIUM, THE WORLD OF COKE (RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET), CNN AND THE FERRIS WHEEL. IT HAS THE EASIEST ACCESS TO I-75/85 (4 BLOCKS AWAY). MUSEUM TOWER IS ONE OF THE BEST MANAGED CONDOS IN THE METRO AREA WITH A VERY HEALTHY MANAGEMENT RESERVE OF OVER $1M. A NEW $30K FOB-ACTIVATED SECURITY SYSTEM WILL BE INSTALLED IN JULY AND AN UPDATED LOBBY AND OTHER COMMON AREAS LATER THIS YEAR. AS ARE A RECENT BUYER IN MUSEUM TOWER AS OF JAN 2016 I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THIS BUILDING. RENTAL UNITS ARE CONTROLLED AT LESS THAN 5% OF THE UNTIS AND MUST BE LONG-TERM RENTALS; NO AIR B&B UNITS. MUSEUM TOWER IS ONE
OF THE FEW CONDOS IN THE AREA TO QUALIFY FOR A VA LOAN. TWO NEW POST APARTMENT COMPLEXES ARE BEING BUILD JUST NORTH AND EAST OF MUSEUM TOWER WHICH WILL BRING MORE PEOPLE DOWNTOWN TO WORK AND PLAY. THE NEW MERCEDES BENZ STADIUM IS GOING TO BE COMPLETED NEXT YEAR ALONG WITH PLANS FOR TWO NEW HIGH-RISE HOTELS NEAR BY. WITH ALL OF THE PLANNED UPDATES TO THE CNN BUILDING AND PHILLIPS ARENA DOWNTOWN ATL WILL BE BOOMING WITH VISITORS AND LOCAL WORKERS WANTING TO LIVE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO THIER JOBS AND LEAVING THE EXCESSIVELY LONG COMMUTES TO OTHERS. DOWNTOWN ATL HAS MORE POLICE THAN ANOTHER AREA IN ATL AND ITS SAFER THAN ANY OTHER AREA IN ATL. AT NIGHT IT IS QUITE AND CENTENNIAL OLYMPIC PARK A BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC AREA TO WALK THROUGH. THIS IS CURRENT INFORMATION ON MUSEUM TOWER. IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO BUY IN A GREAT BUILDING, IN AN UP AND COMING AREA WITH LOW CRIME AND EASY INTERSTATE ACCESS COME TO MUSEUM TOWER.

You simply do not meet the seller's "Buyer Guidelines." They are published and explained to you but some how your expectation allowed you to think these guidelines do not apply to you or think they should not apply to you.
Flailing about with offensive accusation won't change that outcome.
You may have time to strategically reconfigure your buying position in case the currently accepted offer fails. This is unlikely to be achieved in the short time available.

Even when those guidelines are explained, you express denial. If you own other residential real estate, you are an investor in the eyes of the seller and nearly every lender in the country?

"We suspect illegal activity/"
Sigh...everyone does when their improper expectation does not come true.
Sometimes you just can't have it your way.

I would much rather have an offer on a short sale listing from an experienced buyer's agent who knows how to prepare her buyer and the offer than from an unrepresented buyer who doesn't understand the process and walks after 2 weeks or expects an answer in that time. If you had an agent prepare the offer, they would have explained what many of the agents have explained to you - in advance. In addition, it is not uncommon for listing agents to be subject to the possibility of a variable short sale commission. You don't know what fee that agent is going to get for the sale. Sellers and listing agents have their own commission agreements. None are across the board fees with across the board splits. An unrepresented buyer for many sellers means more money in the sellers pocket, not the agents nor the buyers. Do yourself a favor if you are out there and truly want a house..get a good buyers agent with experience listing and sellling shortsales, someone who knows the ropes with timeframes, contingencies, response times, equator, VA or any other matters. This type of transaction can be extremely difficult to control even with an experienced agent. Being unrepresented could, in my opinion, only make things very hard for you and your wife to succeed. ... more

Great answer from Lee Taylor!
I agree that you should select the buildings/locations that appeal to you and then look at everything in that building to draw your own conclusions.
Gosh, walk down memory lane with me...I remember when....I had my first listing when I first was licensed in Castleberry on Mangum. Thats when only artists lived there. ... more
