I relocated from Florida. I wouldn't land in Smyrna. Doubtful you can get 3 bedrooms for $800 but I can look. You might want to get a little farther away from ATL. $800/mo doesn't exist in many places desirable. You are looking at $1,000 or more for 3 BR's anywhere. Let me know how I can help. Where you from in FL? ... more

There are many great homes available in this area. As you know it's a great time to buy a home and buying now will ensure you make a great investment for the future.

I'm not sure you are going to be working with all cash or getting a loan, but don't rule out looking for foreclosure properties. There are many to choose from in the Cobb county area and many of them are in great condition.

If you need some assistance finding a great deal don't hesitate to give me a call.

Can you be a little more specific please so that I might better answer your question for you. Are you asking to take over a loan payment for someone? You would have to qualify and refinance the loan to be able to do this. Please advise me specifics.
Thank you

HI Maggie,

If I were to look for an investment property under $100K for my buyer client, than I would choose an area with the best possible school district... The better the school district the better return for you when you sell it in the next couple of years. Hope this helps.. :) Valerie Corpora-Ellis 770-262-8480 ... more

Dear Maggie,
Cedar Forks is a very stable neighborhood in a desirable area of East Cobb. Even though the homes in the neighborhood are about 30 years old, the fact that it is in the Pope High School district and its affordable prices for East Cobb make it an excellent area for investment opportunity. This is a relatively large community with an active homeowner's association and nice recreational amenties, including a wintertime covered pool for swim teams.
Please allow us to email you complete information about Cedar Forks including available homes in the neighborhood.

If you are relying on data from Trulia / Zillow or other public web sites to determine if and how much property values have fallen in a given area beware as this data is intrinsitcly incorrect. Agents have access to much more information about what is going on in the local market and why. Also, real estate markets are so localized that you really have to look at a very local level. One community can be losing value and another literally across the street can be doing well. This could have to do with the number of foreclosures in a given subdivision and that is the most likely cause of the "downturn" you are referring to. In general, the SW Marietta area is less convenient to the hghway than other parts of Marietta. When the market was good, many would move there not so much by choice but because they couldn't find what they like in the more convenient parts of Marietta. Now, prices have come down everywhere and it's easier for people to find homes in their first choice locations. ... more

Hi Ang!

The area in and around Goodwood are pleasant. The homes are a bit older though. Being a working woman, I am not sure how much home maintenance issues you are willing to have. If you need more information, feel free to visit my website. There are a few more concerns to consider besides home values, especially being single. ... more
