Are you renting or buying? With that kind of budget, you have too many options to list here. I have lived and worked in the kind of neighborhood you describe for more that 20 years. Give me a call to discuss.

Consider looking in Peachtree City, Fayetteville, Tyrone or Newnan if you want to stay on the SouthSide, Alex, or if you need to be closer to the action without actually living in Buckhead or Midtown, look in my home town and home of the Chik-Fil-A, Hapeville. Please call, text or email if we can provide further assistance. Good Luck!

The thought is that the Morningside School District is preferred by many, so that increases the value of the homes.

Unless you're in professions that are always hiring (if there even is such a thing), you'll really do better to get jobs first to figure out what part of town will make sense for you to live in. Budget is also a big issue. Intown is great but tends to be expensive. Commutes are a huge issue so unless you want to spend an hour or more each way getting to and from work, you'll want to live on the same side of town as you work. But don't worry, Atlanta is huge and there are tons of great neighborhoods to choose from. ... more

God is Responsible for the Rain. You, or hopefully your insurance company, is responsible for the repairs. I understand your aggravation and concern, my mother's home was flooded this week due to poor grading in the development. In the meantime, there is no time for her to wait and see. Repairs must be made now to prevent further damage. I hope things work out for you. If you have a success story, please repost to Trulia. ... more

Now, for $135,000, on one of the finer streets of Mechanicsville, and it's a short sale...that is one delightfully sexy "public remarks" description, ain't it?

It would be a great place for entertaining, now that I think about it...

Virtual Properties is the broker. Call the broker in charge, Francine Bean at (770)495-5050. They'll have to drive down from Sugarloaf Parkway to make adjustments to the showcasing ...

You must remember that there are about 25,000 (about a year ago there were about 36,000) real estate agents licensed and active in the metropolitan area.

The barriers to entry and the standards of excellence are rather slim in my business.

Greetings Melissa,
The condo/townhouse market is taking a major hit in most major cities. Are you purchasing a townhome because you want low maintenance, you like the townhouse look, is there a tax abatement or is it the price?

There are thousands of wonderful single family homes that may fit your needs. I have two foreclosures near that development. One is a brick home on .60 acre priced at $39,900. It is a 3 bedroom 2 bath located at 2968 Level Ridge Road.

The other is a newer home that will be coming online shortly located at 385 Holly Road which won't be $100,000 when I get the listing. Whether or not your intended purchase is "wise" depends on your intentions. If you plan to live in your unit for the next five years you will probably be satisfied.

I am a fan of the single family dwelling. Although I am fully aware that anything can happen anywhere, I'm not too keen on making sure the FireWall does it's job.

Good luck to you! If you would like assitance with your home search feel free to contact my office (678) 731-8330.

Greetings Bart,
You have made a commitment to endure all of the wonderful aspects associated with working with contractors. If it is a house that you love in a neighborhood that you adore by all means go for it!!!

Hopefully you will surround yourself with good people to facilitate. An architect will be more familiar with the design guidelines affected by an area's designation. If desin restrictions have been imposed on the area they will be better able to communicate your parameters.

Good Luck and as a resident of the City of Atlanta I solute you!

Atlanta has several colleges in the metro area. Emory, Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Spelman, Morehouse and many others. I would first visit each schools website. Do you plan to sell your home in Mississippi or rent it out? The summer is great time to transition, but I would start looking for a home in April 2009 so that you may close in time for school to begin. Most school districts in the area begin school the first or second week of August.
The Georgia Department of Education website is a good place to start : There are really great public and charter schools in the Atlanta metro area.

When you are ready to start looking for a home in Atlanta I would love to meet with you. You may also visit my website to see new homes on the market.

This is a question best asked of the local police department or sheriff's office. They would be able to provide up-to-date statistics on the crime-rates in the area, sexual predators, etc.

Sounds like FUN Sean! Seems like this 'drought' keeps messing with Atlanta's neighborhood's festivals and events. The Grant Park Springfling was rain-out twice and is now re-scheduled for May 17 and in conjunction with Grant Parks's 125 year celebration. Should be fun through-out Atlanta! ... more

There are studies linking the high voltage lines to cancer and studies showing they are harmless. Either way they are very difficult to sell because no one wants to be a forty year guinea pig and many consider them to be an eyesore. ... more

Lorie Gould answered:
Christine, everything that could effect your resale in the future should be a of concern to you. If you are moving into an active adult community then your resale would be active adults and the school system
might not be of concern and would not be a concern to your buyer.

As for advise on neighborhoods that meet your needs, I would recommend that you contact and interview a few experts that service the Decatur area. Determine what expert best fits your personality that you feel also has your best interests at heart. When you need advise, you need a Realtor. An agent is not permitted to provide advise to consumers unless they are under a representation agreement. A Buyer Representative is free to you and will save you time, money, and headache.

Best of luck!

Hi Daisyjune,
Welcome to Georgia! In your search for the perfect home to live in (after renting), please be aware that Cobb County and Gwinnett County actively solicit the retiree. They have special tax incentives that begin at lower age brackets than other counties. Now about your rental search, Prudential Georgia Realty does have a rental program that can assist you in weeding through the properties that they have in their system that would match as much of the criteria as possible. ... more

Lise Desormeaux answered:
Bre, very sorry about your situation. I did some research about a year ago in Georgia concerning the laws regarding a situation not unlike your own. What I learned from the courts and detective on the case was that absolutely "anyone living in a home" with or without a contract while living there is a tenant even when money is not received or agreed upon. Be sure that you begin the eviction process now so that if this person does not leave as requested you can remove him legally.

Isn't it sad that your kindness was not respected or appreciated.
