Selling any house in Kirkwood means that you must account for the fact that it is a street by street, immediate neighbor by immediate neighbor, neighborhood and that our schools are not the best in Atlanta. They are getting better, but since my daughter is arriving in 2008, and since she might attend Toomer elementary because I'm staying in Kirkwood for a long, long time, I know that Kirkwood is compromised. Buyers can spend similar monies in better school districts.
If the 2/1 house needs a lot of work, keep it under $150,000.00. If you really need to sell it, sell it - hope is not a strategy. If you have nuisance neighbors, good luck - $125,000 or less might be realistic. Maybe less.
I can come look at it - let me know.
