Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, therefore do inform yourself well, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate beforehand. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

Garuffin,

You'll find the public notice of a foreclosure at http://www.GeorgiaPublicNotices.com. Please be mindful, however, that the foreclosure action associated with some of the properties shown there may have been halted.

Hope that helps.

Joan Shorter answered:
cost depends on whether you are converting existing square footage into a bath or doing an addition to add a bath. Either way, you need a permit. You will be doing plumbing, electrical, and hvac work, so don't you want it inspected? I know everyone complains about the process and run around the city gives, but when you go to sell, the disclosure statement asks if there was any work that was not permitted, so you will have to disclose and this work will be more closely scrutinized. In addition to city inspection, you may want a private inspector to check the work. There are some great local contractors. ask on neighborhood facebook pages and message boards. ... more

Yep! I bought a foreclosure in Westview in Dec. 2009. It needed just a little work and I moved in a month later, and I've loved it! I love the proximity to basically anything in the city, I have wonderful, friendly neighbors, and the house is above and beyond what I ever hoped to get for my first home. I would recommend Westview to anyone, and there are still some great deals to be had here! ... more

The City of East Point is a gem of a city (http://www.eastpointcity.org). Its' predominantly inner perimeter locale places it within minutes access to many places including interstate roadways and major Highways (I-285, I-20, 166, 75 and 85). It is very close to the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (5-10 minutes) and the stunning Georgia International Convention Center and Hotel is just minutes away.

East Point has a small town feel but shows signs of booming urban appeal with successes like the Main Street project, and its' high impacting Camp Creek development project and others. Many young residents work in the Camp Creek area and it can be confidently stated that this tax-free development was a very big plus in the City's portfolio and bottom line, even without the benefit of taxation. It provided a new palate for a city diligently shopping for new ideas and development that create quality, re-occurring jobs impacting the local level. It houses well-known brands like Lowe's, B.J's, Red Lobster, Office Depot and many, many more! The City also sells it's own power and water and is in good financial position.

East Point is also a - Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (N.O.R.C) but not committed to just that. There are more than 5,000 N.O.R.C communities in the U.S. Many of the residents have lived in their residences from two to four decades. You can get more info on this program at http://www.norcblueprint.org/stories/East_Point_NORC_Program/. If the link provided is bad. it is located on the city website listed above along with a plethora of other helpful information like demographics, Mayor, City Council info, and the other divisions of the government. East Point is also home to the state of the art, H J C Bowden Senior Multipurpose Facility.

The City has an excellent police department you may contact them directly and get any info you need at:

Law Enforcement Center Information Office
2727 East Point Street East Point, GA 30344
Ph: 404-559-6226

24/7 everyday

East Point has many private and assisted pre-k settings that start many on their way to greatness. Along with a more than solid elementary, middle, and an award winning VPA Magnet high school of around 1800 students. Tri-Cities High School has recently received a 6.5 million dollar performing arts facility addition, and is designated to receive more renovation/new construction in the near future. It is also the former high school of many of Atlanta's Grammy award winning celebrities such as Super Stars Andre' "3,000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton (OutKast, Big Kidz Foundation Inc.), Kandi Burress (Exscape, RHOA), and Bangladesh Productions. It also received 10,000 dollars from the LudaCris Foundation for it's fashion design program and many other companies have contributed to the school and gone on to partner with the city and county.

East Point also has a well-received and growing Hispanic population, many of them are business owners, long time resident home owners with kids. All grade schools are under the supervision of Fulton County Board of Education.

In lieu of the recent probationary status of the neighboring Atlanta Board of Education. East Point stands ready to openly and effectively receive any new residents and assure them that the City is indeed on the right track. The transition to an even greater city by qualifying for more available funding with new growth will be its' task. The local schools of East Point are destined for even greater multi-cultural success stories in my opinion.

There's plenty of opportunity for business. Therefore, access to education is not going to be your problem with the city being located within the perimeter and just outside I-285. As far as RE opportunities; There is no Teacher-Next-Door nor Officer/EMS-Next-Door program available to East Point as of this time. However, there are many RE investment and business opportunities.
