be a great location to commute for work.

Help the community by answering this question:


"Too high?" Look on the Briarcliff edge, particularly what gets called VAHI yet is not - the Briar Vista area, south of North Druid Hills.

Furthermore, multiplexes, apartments and leased condos in the Old Fourth Ward and downtown buildings, particularly south of North Avenue, and south of Ralph McGill, will deliver better value per square foot than a heart of VAHI rental.

Negotiation is about price, terms and time - offer then $5000 up front for a substantial lease period, at a pro rata discount. Offer to lease for 2-3 years...etc. Getting a landlord off of their lease amount goal in that submarket is not likely.

You can always ask, but they do have to repsond. Virginia Highlands is generally not a very cheap place to live.

Well my friend i would request you to negotiate for buying a property instead of going for rental accommodation, as this is a good time of the year where you can plan to own a property, with easy housing loans are available within a low rate of interest. As chances are there that prices may rise within couple of months.
