Could becoming a landlord be an innovative way for buyers to afford Atlanta neighborhoods with escalating prices such as Old Fourth Ward?
That’s the suggestion with this overhauled duplex near the Highland Avenue dog park, in what’s described as “Atlanta’s HOTTEST neighborhood”—with inflation to match.
Is the $895,000 asking price too steep? Well, just the rent other half, the listing suggests.
As showcased by photos that just might have been taken with a fisheye surveillance camera, these circa-1920 walls contain an upstairs unit with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, and another downstairs with one less bedroom.
Both units boast fresh kitchens with granite and shaker cabinets, outdoor decks, laundry rooms, and original hardwoods. Square footages aren’t specified.
The 85 WalkScore hints at the easy-breezy strolling distance from here to Freedom Barkway, Highland Bakery, and the Beltline’s Eastside Trail beyond.
Another option, per the listing, is to simply convert this to a single-family pad—with basically six bathrooms, two kitchens, and two sets of utility bills.
Here’s a photo compilation of both units:
