What's all that incessant creaking? It's the chatter of 72-year-old hardwood floors and stairways in this charming 1940 East Lake home, and it's the sound of personality. The three-bed, two-bath cottage was flipped in 2008, and the broker assures us there's been numerous updates since. The $269,000 ask exemplifies the deals to be had south of Decatur. Perks include sizable front and back yards, a nifty deck, period molding, detached single-car garage and a master bath with travertine tile and frameless glass. Plus the place is hardwired for TV and stereo with in-wall speakers. Rumor has it there's a noteworthy golf tourney nearby come September.
