We have NOT been listed for 180 days. We have been listed for 37 DAYS. Traditonal agents do not like the duffy realty sytem and say they deal with unreasonable sellers. They would rather work with an agent. As a result they do not show our property. You can reply reach me at 6786652505 for any other question or to present an offer. Duffy realty contracting will help facilitate all paperwork. Thank you. ... more

The Grant Park area is a great area to purchase property for your son. Take a look at the demographics-

Although no one can predict where the market will be in 2 years, Grant park has a phenomenal chance to increase property values by then. I have a number of properties to show you if you are interested. Simply e-mail me if you would like to see them!

I like the location of Central City, particularly for your commuting needs - it's on foot, even in bad weather. Very nice. Unless you wanna buy a jet pack and land on top of the Med Center like the helicopters do. That would certainly rock.

You ask a lot of insightful questions. I believe that you know what you are doing and that you already have the answers. If you are looking for validation on the merits of a significantly under market purchase, and a long term hold from what I can tell, then this secure community is a winner for you.

Depending on what you want, you can spend less in other gated communities nearby. You can spend more for less at Tribute and a few others nearby.

We don't call it Bedford-Pine anymore by the way - old Nathan Bedford Forrest was the founder of the KKK, so regardless of his esteemed service to the Confederacy 150 years ago, us Intowners don't cotton to his legacy, ya dig? Therefore, we renamed Bedford to Central and call the park Central Park. We call the general neighborhood the Old Fourth Ward, and if you want direct insight into what's happening around the area, if you want crime statistics, if you want to meet Kwanzaa Hall, the City Councilman for the area, then attend a neighborhood meeting - lots of condo dwellers take part in the greater neighborhood.

Here's their site - .

Your risks on purchasing a foreclosure should be clear - hire a great Realtor to mitigate.

Fulton County and Atlanta are rife with overspending, mis-spending and more spending to come. Regardless of efforts to trim the fat, government of this growing city, with weak infrastructure fundamentals, is challenging to even the best talent.

If you have problems with more taxes piling up, then don't move Intown. We live here and pay more to live here because we like living here better than living in the suburbs. I get what I get - it's more expensive, but the quality of life trade-off is nice - we make up for it with affordable real estate, and super cool, unique neighborhoods. We` have safe neighborhoods too, for the most part.

Call me if I can help you further.

I agree with Lee - however a 2/2 at that price, brand new, centrally located to the city, I would consider a good buy.

Make sure you work with a Realtor that is representing you! On-site Agents have the best interest of the Seller or Developer in mind, no matter what other impression they may give you. I had a pair of friends/clients that got taken by an on-site Agent, while I was on my honeymoon. When I got back they had signed a full-price offer, put down $10,000 in earnest money (for a $300k) condo, the contract didn't include an inspection, and they were going to have to pay for all of their appliances. I was out of the country, and the on-site Agent made them believe that if they didn't sign it that day they were going to loose out on this "deal" forever.
That was less than a year ago... in a very down condo market. You have the ability to negotiate on both new constructions and re-sale. Make sure you have a Realtor who is aware of the market and recent sales, the hidden costs, and extra things to ask for, to make your purchase worthwhile.

Good Luck & if you need any guidance don't hesitate to contact me!
