Location. You are close to the city and highways. The further out you move from the city and highways the better house you can get. I learned this from my own home search

You can always check with the local police departments in that area and they can give you the crime statistics for any area you are interest in knowing about.

It definitely is being reinvigorated. I am a native Atlantan and Avondale Estates has always been this unusual oasis of a little town. It is undergoing a renaissance in that you are in Dekalb County, no city of Atlanta taxes yet close to the city and also Decatur and 285. It is a great area to live in.

If I can be of further help to you just let me know.

I appraise (and appraised) many homes in here and represented buyers a time or two over the last several years, it's a good spot. Rivermont is community that offers good value and excellent location, the predominant value in the area is above that of the community. Locationally it's also desirable as there are main and secondary roads for access in all directions. Schools are solid and the area enjoys a favorable reputation.

The downside (relative of course) is that these are older homes and some designs (contemporary mainly) do not have wide market appeal. Many of the homes have been updated in various ways, some still need that and are appropriately priced. This is a development offering good value, excellent location and the opportunity (if desired) to buy a home for a decent price and put your stamp on it.

If there's anythign specific that I can help you with, drop me an email.

Greetings Chad,
Trying to work a formula that you got from somewhere may cause you to miss out on a property that you like. What kind of condition is the house in. If you want numbers to justify your bid you should work with repair costs and market value.

Why would you say 75% when there may be a possibility that you can get it for 70% of asking price. What does that matter when the current list price is 30% below the original list price? Where does all the figuring, estimating and planning end and the bidding begin?

Real Estate will never be perfect...I have a client who bought at $279,000 now the price on the sign in front of the subdivision reads $220's and the builder is giving away upgrades. Sometimes real estate is just gut instinct. Get a super patient agent and start low. Only The seller knows what they will and won't accept.
