Untrue, Rodney Mason...Atlanta has TONS of live/work spaces. The majority is located in areas near Inman Park, along the Beltline, and also off 10th Street, by the Humane Society.

StudioPlex (across my office) is a fantastic live/work development. For thos e not looking for fancy, real warehouses with no frills and no fancy, faciung the belt line (located Off Sampson Street) owned by my former Landlord, John Morrison (Morrisonproperties.com)

What type of work is involved - there are alternative spaces, like King Plow Arts Center or The Metropolitan "Business and Arts District" (see web reference) that offer live/work rental arrangements.

Atlanta does not really have many of those types of properties. There are very few live/work spaces in Metro Atlanta. The type of business would further restrict the options.

Contacting a Buyer's Agent and working directly with them is the best option. Renting many not be a possibility though. There are condos with retail space on the street level across the area. You might be able to lease the retail space then purchase or lease a condo on one of the upper floors for living, but it would not be directly connected.

Working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at http://www.rodneymason.com.

Oh, for lease. This will be tougher.

What kind of business?

Check the Edgewood/O4W area too

I like Huff Heights townhouses and the M West Phase 1 townhouses on the Westside. There are many options throughout Intown. There are some bargain mega-space "new" Townhouses on Memorial that are the biggest bang for the buck near downtown. There are options along Moreland built in the 2000s. There are plenty of well configured, remodeled houses available.

What's your budget?

If you want a tour, call me.

Andrew,

There are actually very few true live/work properties in metro Atlanta and even fewer for rent. The First Multiple Listing Service does not have that as a property category. I've seen a few units for sale in the last year, none are currently listed for rent.
