Is pretty-in-pink Atlantic Station condo a steal at $238K?

Overlooking downtown, this Twelve Residences flat provides affordable (but small) intown entry for singles or couples

Touted in the listing as a “low-maintenance gem [that] will not last,” this 2005 condo in Twelve Residences at Atlantic Station definitely knows how to catch one’s attention.

Those pink walls throughout, the reddish cabinets in the kitchen, and the travertine walls running along the kitchen and into the family room are certainly eye magnets.

In fact, it’s as if they’re competing with the dynamite, panoramic views of downtown Atlanta and Mercedes-Benz Stadium from both the family room and bedroom. (Try to imagine The Atlantic tower isn’t there).

Also in the living room, the chandelier looks a bit out of place; in fact, the majority of the lighting fixtures could use an update.

The walk-out balcony looks pretty small, but appears large enough for some chill chairs.

Potential buyers interested in home technology will like the Nest thermostat, August smart lock, and WiFi-enabled security system complete with night-vision camera.

The monthly HOA fees of $394 include access to such amenities as a 24-hour concierge, fitness center, swimming pool, and clubroom, plus two parking spaces.

With just 830 square feet, the asking price of $237,500 for this condo definitely is more about location and amenities than space.

The real question: Is the price low enough and the unit big enough to land a buyer? Most likely, the answer is yes. And most likely, they’ll want to leave room in the budget for adjustments.
