I own a 2 bed 2 bath in 800 Peachtree St. Many GT students and professionals live in our building. Some GT students rent, although only 20% of our units may be rented, several are owned by parents whose student children live there, and the others are owned outright. I have been considering selling our unit and will probably do so in the next year. It is on the top floor at the end, so only one neighbor and no-one above. It is about 1200 sq ft. Let me know if you are interested in discussing this further. ... more

Jack - you state that you "want to invest in a condo which has retail spaces and restaurants at the bottom level," in the mid-200's for a starter in the building, right? Is it worth investing? Only you can determine that - you've heard from others here that your criteria is more about a lifestyle choice that it is a financial investment, wouldn't you agree?

What is your investing experience up to this point in your financial history?

You ask "do condos like these build good equity??" I'll say no, and under the criteria that most professional real estate investors would use for "good equity" then I will say, no, absolutely not.

2 bedrooms always offer more options for a broader base of buyers, particularly when 2 bathrooms come along with them.

Midtown will become more dense, and density will increase demand. Supply will reach a pinnacle in a few years, but a long term hold for most Midtown condos is the only way to build equity - sweat equity in reasonable improvements and cash equity through paying down your debt.

Welcome to Midtown Atlanta where the players play, and a lot of broke folks own real estate.

Lee Taylor answered:
Overpriced ? Maybe. If you define overpriced as not priced effectively enough to sell out in a rapid manner in a historically high inventory Buyer's market, then sure, Eon is overpriced. The builder has not sold out yet.

James offered a solid answer - I agree with him.

If you are a discriminating buyer who seeks a multi-faceted, amenity-rich, centrally-located, transit-focused community then Eon has many unique qualities that set it apart from other similar condo communities in Intown Atlanta.

Eon's marketing is really cool. You gonna buy there?
