Eric is right, and I'll add that the West End is a street by street neighborhood for sure. Just this year, at the dead end on Westmont, I saw a recently built single family home, abandoned with broken windows and sporting a "Campanella Park Piru Bloods" tag spray painted in red on the side of the house. Condition and location with immediate neighbors is crucial. Just across the MARTA line, in Adair Park, we are looking at one of the top 5 neighborhoods in the country for foreclosures. Supply exceeds demand for rentals and sales, by probably at least 10 to 1.
Altogether, value priced rentals will attract a good solid tenant who will secure a stream of income for you for years to come. I have a client who rented a decent 3/2 in the West End on a decent street for $800 a month. Certainly, it's an attractive location for Morehouse Med School students and others who seek a nice place to live near the CAUC.
