Christmas - have you made some progress in the past 2 weeks?

I'm a 12 year veteran Intown neighbor and I've been up and down your target area with clients. Hank's advice is sound - condo, loft or townhome living is much better suited for your budget and your general criteria.

I like Ormond - not my favorite street in GP/Sunmmerhill but it's OK. However, at your price point it's not where I would invest.

Rtown/Ctown - same basic issues.

Ormewood - the southside of OP will meet your budget, but living between the Foxey Lady Lounge and the Pen may not meet your distinct goals.

Your price will probably not deliver what you seem to seek, but if you open up to a nice condo, loft or townhome community, then wow - I'll just name one - Candler Park Condominiums on the corner of Candler and McLendon - pool, parkside, walk to golf, walk to L5P, walk to the heart of CP...and get a 2/1 for $125K if you know how to structure an attractive offer.

I'll buy you a drink on the rooftop at Six Feet Under if you want to talk things over with The Intown Insider...

Have cash... Have an agent... Do your research first and quickly... Be aggressive in your offers and be creative to outbid others. Close quickly. I list foreclosures and many of mine have multiple offers. Being on the "other side" often helps me to better understand the processes banks use in negotiating contracts which may give you an advantage when trying to buy foreclosures. Either way, hire an agent who has experience and knowledge of the foreclosure process. ... more

Marcus, I believe I saw someone comment on the fact the Farrington Ave IS NOT in Grant Park, but rather in the Peoplestown neighborhood. There are several intown neighborhoods near 'approved' beltline parks that will be transforming and improving more quickly than others - in my opinion. These up and coming neighborhoods are still intown and have some great opportunities with foreclosed homes.

Let me know if you would like additional specific information.

There has been plenty of appreciation in the neighborhoods surrounding Grant Park, from Summerhill to Ormewood to Benteen. I would judge the consistency of the street - are there a lot of other homes that have been renovated or just a sprinkling? Are the sizesand age of the homes consistent? Appreciation intown does not neccesarily mean you sit back and do nothing to your house and expect cash to roll in later. Are there enough upgrades to justify current price? What foreseeable upgrades will you do to the house?
