Many new buyers want to be in a convenient – and fun — Atlanta neighborhood, but sometimes the prices are a little hard to swallow. The following areas are my ‘intown favorites’, offering you the ability to find a home that is move-in ready and will allow you to quickly build equity in your investment: The East Lake Terrace neighborhood surrounds the East Lake Country Club (near the intersection of 2nd Ave and Glenwood Ave) and has experienced tremendous growth in the past two years.

Buckhead Condos Under 150K brought to you by Brad Nevin

This week’s installment focuses on affordable and convenient Buckhead condo life. It’s an area where lots of us would like to live because of proximity to work or maybe all of the restaurants and shopping Buckhead has to offer. True there are lots of nice, expensive condos available to those in a certain income bracket, however there are other options for living in Buckhead which allow you to enjoy the same perks of the area. Buckhead Square is a new conversion in 2005 that offers hardwoods, granite countertops and stainless appliances for those looking for a modern feel. HOA’s tend to be around $150 per month which is great for Atlanta, and all units have new washer and dryer. Units are available from $150,000 and below, so definitely take a look at these condos. Another great location for Buckhead living can be found just up Piedmont from Peachtree at Habersham of Buckhead. Condos are available below $150,000, and the property has a pool and fitness center for your enjoyment. HOA’s are usually around 200 and below, still great for Atlanta, and the location has easy access to 85, 400 and 285. Moving to a slightly different location off of Sydney Marcus, Lenox Villas sits atop the hill providing some nice views if you find the right unit. Condos are available below $150,000, and HOA’s are holding steady around $200 per month. 85 is right out your front door for easy Downtown access, and Lenox Mall is right up the street. A few more buildings I would like to mention are SoBu Flats in Buckhead Village, Bradley House on Roswell...
