Check the local precinct for safety stats, Tishayl, or city data (below in web ref) for that and other pertinent info. As far as a commute to GSU, I'd say 12-14 minutes in moderate traffic. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Why would you not have fired him after the first late offer, Sp? Or the second? Or third. Three strikes rule, in my opinion.

As far as crime is concerned your best source of information is the local department--why not call/visit and hear all there is to hear firsthand. As far as renovations, tastes vary--why not drive around town and check out all that is of interest to you and then make your own determinations. You'll thank yourself later as opinions as just that. ... more

I live in the neighboring Kirkwood community, but have sold numerous homes to professionals moving into the community. In fact, a couple from San Francisco just bought a gorgeous victorian cottage renovation in Finley St. from me last month...they work at Emory and CDC.

Edgewood is currently undergoing some exciting changes, including the demolition of the large tracts of Section 8 housing that negatively impacted the area in many ways. The plan is to replace these units with over 200 new mixed-income units that will be approximately 60% market rate and 40% on a sliding scale based on income.

If you are looking at crime statistics, please keep in mind that the numbers are heavily skewed by shop-lifting and such by the nearby Edgewood Retail District, which is another overwhelmingly positive develpment to the area.

Like many gentrifying areas, Edgewoods housing values can vary widely on a street-by-street and block-by-block really pays to have an agent knowledgeable in the area to help be sure you are getting the best deal possible. For what it is worth, if I were in the market for a new home, I would give SERIOUS consideration to Edgewood.

Deborah - this question seems to have been asked several times over the past few weeks. I sold a new home to a young couple 2 yrs ago in the Edgewood area. She works for the GA State Attorney General's office and he sells Landrovers. They have a 2yr old now too. They have been enjoying the area. There is also a wonderful coffee shop/dog park in Edgewood that is a popular spot for non 9-5 professionals during the week and 9-5ers on weekends. Lastly, there are quite a few modern homes being built in the area, which appeals to the younger buyer. Definitely an area hot on the rise.

If you know someone moving to Atlanta - I definitely know the intown markets. Please give them my info. You can also contact me directly if you would like more info.

I googled "edgewood, reynoldstown, cabbagetown, grant park, georgia, owner financing" and I didn't find any front page info on any specific listings.

Owner Financing is more frequent nowadays. How do we specifically find those kind of properties quickly?

I do not know of a better place to identify the right property for my clients than in FMLS. FMLS does not enable a search field for "owner financing" so without that button, a non-techie like me will not go much further.

I will ask my business partner, Greg Ruis if he knows how.

Hey - Carl Martens - you readin' this? You know how to exclusively identify "owner-financing" offerings on property listings in FMLS or GAMLS? Carl is a guru.

Sean Casey, Joan Macaluso - both of you probably have listings that might meet Nancy's criteria.

Nancy - we'll check around.

In the meantime, call me if I can answer any other questions about the area - I moved to Inman Park from Duluth in 1998, and never looked back. I live in Kirkwood now. You guys will love living Intown.

What else is important to you other than help with some of the financing?

It's an excellent time to do this IF you are going to keep the home for 3-5 years. Prices will not go much lower, and if you sit on the fence too long, they'll go back up. This is a great time to build wealth through real estate, as it will come back, it always has. ... more
