I´d like to give you advice about a particular property I had issues with.

2911 Bentwood DR, marietta, 30062

House and schools are good but my family and I had a very bad experience with the owner and not a very good one with the agent.

I´m available to give you more details if you need them.

You can find a map with the boundaries of each school on the cobb county education website ( If you're looking to buy a home, a good local agent (like me) will also know or can easily check which school a home is districted to.

Let me know if I can help.

It's a highly transient area with lots of apartments and retail. My advice is to drive it on a weekend night and weekday morning to see the noise and activity level.

Would love to know how the search is going for you. Perhaps you are under contract or perhaps you are still looking. Hopefully you found an agent that knows this area to work with. Still some great deals on homes in this area. If you looking for new construction however your homes start around 580k and up in these school districts. I'd buy a fixer-upper and resell once your kids are out of school to buy what you want down the road. ... more

In 30008 its not bad. You will hear the aircraft but you are not right under the flight pattern. In some parts of 30060 and 30067 it would be more noticable since they are closer tot he runways. Even at that it would just be some areas of those zips.

Either way its not a real heavily used base.

Zillow and Trulia are not capable to sifting data, they are essentially worthless as are almost all automated valuation models (AVMs). To accurately gauge anything you need filtered information that relates to your specific area.

Drop me line, I can tap my appraisal resources and pull statisical data using SMART in about 5 minutes.

Wolfert & Wrenn Real Estate Team answered:
Since East Cobb is about 95% built out, any land zoned for residential will be either an individual lot or small amount of acreage. Since value is a function of supply and demand, you might think that the limited supply would drive demand and price. And, in a good market it might. But, E Cobb is full of 5 homes on a cul-de-sac and one off houses at the corners of major roads.

Unless you can find at least 1/2 acre zoned for residential, I don't think there's much you can build on it that will generate a decent return. Builder like to keep land at 20%-25% of cost. So, a $200,000 1/2 acre, will need to sell for $800,000 to keep that ratio. I don't see that kind of demand coming back for a while.

On the positive side, buy and hold and it will increase in value over time - lots of time.

Good luck.
