How safe is it?

How many trees are on the property, and are any about to fall on the house?

Based on that stretch of East Confederate, well since it is a 35 mph street and some playaz take it to the next level, a drunk driver could skid off the road and plow into the house at very high speed...maybe...

I don't know about lightning frequency around those parts, but the likelihood of Intown tornadoes on our megalopolitan, urban heat island is indeed increasing.

Coyotes are surfacing in packs all over Intown Atlanta and since East Confederate has plenty of creeks nearby, well certainly the area could be considered unsafe for bunny rabbits, cats and small children...

Oh, was your question about crime? Check the web reference - the Trulia crime heat map for Atlanta is a zip by zip super detailed data aggregator - check it's really cool graphically.

Bus transit is nearby because of the government employment on that street. MARTA trains are miles and miles away...

Hi Dana,

Leases with an option to purchase are becoming increasingly popular in today's market due to sellers' inability to sell and buyers' inability to secure a loan. In such cases, a lease option can be a win-win for both parties.

However, keep in mind that the seller has probably not considered such an arrangement and may need to be educated on the process. Additionally, you will need an experienced real estate agent who is familiar with option contracts.

For more details, please contact me as I have negotiated half a dozen lease options already this year throughout the South Bay and West LA areas.

Congrats on trying to buy a home. If you are a vet, you may qualify for a VA loan. They offer a true 100% Loan, but check around as they usually have a little bit higher fees up front.

Another government loan is FHA. Although they require a 3% down payment, it is possible to do a down payment program where you would need minimal money out of pocket.

The best thing you can do is check with a REPUTABLE lender in your area, have them review your credit as well as debt and income. They will be able to give you a realistic view of what you would qualify for.

Not all lenders/banks offer VA loans, but I recommend checking first with your credit union or bank. Suntrust is one that I recomment (they are not in all states) and I have worked with some good lenders with Bank of America and Chase. Also check with a Realtor. They usually are a good resource.

Good luck!

Hi Eric,
I am not sure if you meant to do this, but your question showed up in questions for Atlanta, Georgia and it looks like it should be in a California area. You may need to repost the question.
