The short answer, Jesse, is "sometimes." If the builder's preferred lender participates in the program and you meet all of the requirements, you should be able to use down payment assistance on a new home. Unfortunately, some local builders discourage the use of such programs. One even raises the earnest money deposit to over $7,000 if you choose an outside lender and makes it very hard to get back those funds.

Your post reads "30030," a Dekalb County Zip Code. Some builder-preferred lenders participate in some of those programs, but you need to go about setting things up the right way. I'd welcome an opportunity to speak with you about it. You can find my number by clicking on my profile. For some reason, I am unable to post it.

This is an old question, but still relevant. HausZwei Home has started using virtual staging. They will take high quality photos of the inside and outside of the house. You can choose which rooms you want "staged" and they many different styles to choose from for each room. So you could do one room with modern furniture and the next traditional. With a 24 hour turnaround they will have the photos and your "staged" home photos back to you. ... more

David, look in the Belvedere Park and Meadowbrook Acres area of Decatur 30032. Its close to Downtown Decatur and Kirkwood. You're near 3 Marta stations. There is no such thing as easy access anymore inside 285, but you have 2 interstates and many side roads if you work Downtown, Midtown or Buckhead. It will be extremely difficult to impossible to find anything decent for rent in Decatur 30030 for $1,200. E,g, Our 2br/1ba in Midway Woods rents for $1350/mo.
HausZwei Homes has 2br 2ba for $1250-$1350/mo but they rent very fast in Meadowbrook Acres.
Full disclosure I'm a partner in HausZwei Homes, but I only handle our properties.

One is, but I can't find Talley Street. You may want to confirm that the listing was properly entered in to MLS. Sometimes that syndication check box doesn't always get checked.

Good luck.

These are great areas with a variety of houses, condominiums and shopping. 30030 is primarily City of Decatur, which has its own school system, 30033 is mostly North of Decatur and is unincorporated DeKalb County. ... more

My advice would be to avoid the Dekalb County High schools in some areas. Of course there are magnet schools that are excellent. The City of Decatur School district would be a better option. ... more

Hi Taylor,
I live in Decatur and am very familiar with the area. City of Decatur is great with a popular school system. Are you looking to rent or buy?

Midway Woods Neighborhood

Midway Woods is a beautiful neighborhood in Decatur, GA 30030 and has over 700 homes and has a lower crime rate than most of DeKalb County. Although the majority of the homes are in area 30030, they are not in the “City of Decatur”. They are located in unincorporated Dekalb County and they pay much lower taxes. The homes are new construction and brick Cape Code homes built in the 1950?s and they are on beautiful tree lined streets. Midway Woods has a very strong neighborhood association without covenants and they keep all the neighbors connected and informed.

They are in the DeKalb County school district and can also attend the highly regarded Museum Charter School. There are many nearby private schools such as the Waldorf School of Atlanta and The Friends School of Atlanta.

There is shopping all around the Midway Woods neighborhood. Just a mile from Downtown Decatur, residents can shop all the stores around the square and there is a large Publix at the corner of North Decatur Road and Clairemont Road. There is also the fabulous Farmers Market located on E. Ponce de Leon right outside the City of Avondale.

There are numerous areas of recreation located in Midway Woods. Dearborn park is located at the corner of Midway Woods and Deerwood Drive and has 7 acres. It also features a basketball court, multi-use court, picnic pavilions, running streams and a playground.

The homes in Midway Woods are very affordable and you can find beautiful new homes at great prices. We have just received the building permit for a home located at 2555 Midway Woods. Construction on this home will begin in the next week and will fit the architectural style of the area.

Asha, I would check with Laura Sosa-Rocha of the Truth and Lending team at Heritage Bank of the South.... I have seen her team do an FHA loan for clients that were told by other lenders they weren't eligible. If the home buyer isn't eligible now she will help explain to them the best way to strengthen their credit. ... more

Jill Biggs answered:
Showcase your home as a 2 bedroom as more buyers are looking for a 2nd bedroom than a dining room when they are home hunting! Since the space is unusual you could just the table as a "desk" to make it more of an office space. Either way don't confuse the buyers by making it look like a dining area. ... more
