Grove Park is near the heart of downtown ATLANTA. The housing stock is a mix of Single Family, Duplex and Multi-Family units. You will find prices ranging from 20K - 60K for single family homes and a bit more for other types. Many homes offered there could be called 'handyman' specials. Many homes in Grove Park have faced Foreclosure and vandalism. Find yourself a four-sided Brick home in Grove Park and fix it up exactly as YOU think it should be!

Have a happy day -

You can visit for in-depth crime stats and area demographics. Another option is or calling the local police dept.

What is enough?

There were 4 sales in GP since January.

2 pending.

That's enough for an appraiser to work with - demand is weak over there for anything above $20,000...

Cynthia, you should definitely take the money you planned on using to pay your rent for a year and pay off the debt that is causing the credit issues. You and your husband are planning on buying in a year because you need to clear up your credit, but if you pay your rent for a year you will still have those credit issues. Every time you pay off something that's hindering your credit, your score goes up. If you focus on lowering your debt-to-income ratio and removing all of the derogatory items on your credit, you and your husband could be ready to buy in 6 months! I've had plenty of buyers I've worked with between 6-12 months and because they did exactly what the loan office told them, they were sitting at the closing table collecting the keys to their own home!

If you want information for down payment assistance there are a couple that I've used that my clients were very happy with:

1. Georgia Dream homeownership program: or
2. Atlanta Development Authority:

You can take the homebuyer education class at Resources for Residents and Communities of GA, 100 Flat Shoals Avenue, SE - Atlanta, GA 30316. 404.525.4130 x15

Good Luck and please feel free to contact me if you need help or have any additional questions.

I would recommend AFCO Realty. I have worked with Geoff Friedman, President of AFCO Realty in Atlanta in the past, and trust him implicitly.
