For this installment of Curbed Comparisons, we’re taking a look at what’s available to purchase for $750,000 around Atlanta. As homebuyers in recent years can attest, $750,000 is the new $400,000 in many intown neighborhoods, for better or worse.
From Ridgewood Heights in the ITP northeast to Buckhead Forest, Garden Hills, and Peachtree Hills in the north, to Candler Park in the east, there’s quite the selection of homes available for $750,000 right now, give or take $25,000. In this case, most weigh in with similar square footages and numbers of bedrooms and bathrooms. There are some exceptions, though, like the two-bedroom condo or the 2,302-square-foot bungalow. As always, location could play a role in which property is the best buy.
Sporting fresh paint, a master retreat addition, a new kitchen, and a new driveway, this 1954 bungalow in Ridgewood Heights on the so-called Upper Westside shines brightly with curb appeal that carries over into the interior.
