For this installment of Curbed Comparisons, we’re taking a look at what’s available to purchase for $250,000 around Atlanta.
Throughout the city, a variety of homes come in at, or very close to, $250,000. In this sample, they all offer less than 2,000 square feet, too, ranging from upscale Buckhead condo to West End renovations, with a little bit of everything in between.
Overall, these properties could be affordable entries to ITP living, even for families, as three have at least three bedrooms. For those with deeper pockets, each of these listings also could double as a good rental property.
Located in the “desired” Massellton complex in Midtown, this two-bedroom, one-bath condo doesn’t disclose how much square footage it contains, but it does come across as fairly spacious in the listing photos. The 1924 unit includes a private porch, two assigned parking spaces, and close proximity to Piedmont Park. Current asking price is $252,500.
Touting its proximity to the Oakland City Transit Station, this 1,680-square-foot home contains four bedrooms and three bathrooms on two floors in West End. As part of a recent renovation, it now sports new carpets and an updated kitchen. The front porch adds to the curb appeal, while the new privacy fence around the backyard is a nice addition. Unfortunately, there’s no rear deck or patio to go with it. Current asking price: $249,000.
Inside a gated community in Cascade, this three-bedroom, four-bathroom townhome is part of a 2005 John Wieland development. The three-story end unit encompasses 1,936 square feet with a small balcony and attached, one-car garage. Community amenities include a swimming pool and clubhouse. Asking pricing is $252,000.
This “gorgeous renovation” in Dixie Hills claims to have features you would find in more expensive homes. Inside the 1,708-square-foot house, that may refer to the updated kitchen, stacked stone fireplace, and private fenced backyard with new deck. The three-bedroom, three-bath house even has a private balcony off the master bedroom “retreat.” Current asking price is $249,800.
The smallest of these listings, this Buckhead condo has just one bedroom and one bathroom in 655 square feet. That could be offset by the condo’s location in one of the “most sought-after” high-rise buildings in Buckhead—that is, Realm. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of North Peachtree Road, while all appliances and one covered parking space are included. Building amenities range from a swimming pool and gym to concierge services and a business center. Current asking price: $249,000.
