Collier Heights is located in 30318. Collier Heights is the foremost mid-20th-century African-American suburb in Atlanta and the premier example of a mid-century suburb created for and by African Americans in the country. Its preeminence derives from its unique combination of sheer size, the number and range of its singleĀ­ family houses, the quality of its planning, design, construction, and landscaping, its association with an emerging middle and upper-middle class of African-American homebuyers for whom it was built, and the prominent role played by African Americans in all aspects of its development during a time of strict housing segregation in the South and nationally. ... 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.

Hi Spencer,

Congratulations on your decision to buy your first home together!

Atlanta traffic is becoming a serious issue for homebuyers. As an Atlanta native I can attest to the hair-pulling frustration of spending an hour in the car for a 7 mile commute.

There are areas around Vinings where you can find a home for around $250k, but they go quickly in this seller's market. Have you considered a condo? There are more condos than single family homes for sale at that price point.

If you are first time home buyers, there are several mortgage options to help you with this purchase.

If you are not currently working with an agent I would be glad to assist you with your search.

Best of luck to you both!

Kathy Malloy

Yes you get a loan now.I tell all my clients with lower scores to visit US Mortgage Lender. They have close many homes by getting clients approved even with scores under a 600 for FHA. They have a few lenders that can go down to a 580 for FHA, so If anyone can get you a loan they can..

Hey Spencer,

I ask my first time home buyer clients to consider resales in strong school clusters for potentially the biggest return on their investments in the shortest time periods. you can sell at some point in the near future, then buy your dream home. You cannot go wrong with Cobb County Schools. Particularly for your location needs, properties in these high school areas may work well.


That does not mean that the others are poor, in deed, on the contrary. But there are several properties in your price range within these high school clusters that may work well for you. You can search by Cobb County High school at the link below.

I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you if you are not currently engaged with another agent. We can discuss some of the first time home buyer programs including down payment assistance on the mortgage tab and more.

I like the area and see a number of cheap homes listed for this area. I am curious if anyone knows why so many homes are for sale in case there is something I don't know about the area.

Usually, I'm not going to run a credit check on a lease renewal.

You are probably best to stay where you are until you can repair your credit.

With great income, credit repair should only take 3-6 months ... more
