What $200K buys around Atlanta right now

New, 46 comments

The bottom line here is, older could be better if space and condition are not priorities

This installment of Curbed Comparisons looks at what $200,000—give or take $9,000—will still garner with condos and fixer-uppers around Atlanta at the moment.

When shopping at this price point, finding older, yet updated condos in sought-after neighborhoods is easy, provided space is not a huge factor. Likewise, landing a fixer-upper just beyond the confines of Atlanta’s core isn’t difficult, and many even include a good amount of space. The question here becomes: Just how much fixing do you want to do?

Labeled a “fantastic investment opportunity” in Southwest Atlanta’s Venetian Hills, this 2,290-square-foot home includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The listing states the home is in good condition with its hardwood floors, ample supply of natural light, and curb appeal. It also comes with a tenant who is paying $1,400 in monthly rent. After a series of price cuts totaling $42,500 since it was first listed in August, the current asking price is $192,500.

Located in Midtown just minutes from Piedmont Park, this one-bedroom, one-bath condo sports a recent renovation that saw the addition of quartz countertops in the kitchen and an updated bathroom. The 750-square-foot unit also comes with assigned parking and access to the building’s swimming pool. The HOA fees were not disclosed, so it’s unclear how much they will add to the current asking price of $195,000.

With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, this 1,920-square-foot Cape Cod home in Westview offers plenty of potential for those wanting a true fixer-upper. In fact, this property looks like it could benefit from an entire gutting before rebuilding from the foundation up. The yard also will require quite a bit of cleanup and rehab in order to be move-in ready. As such, the current asking price of $199,900 certainly would be a mere starting point for any budgeted renovation.

Inside this 918-square-foot condo in Buckhead, there’s a lot of new among the “historic charm.” This ranges from new paint and light fixtures to new custom kitchen cabinets and a new Samsung stackable washer and dryer. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom main level unit also features a screened-in patio with “park-like” setting. Monthly HOA fees of $329 are a consideration, and the current asking price is $209,000.

Bargain-shoppers seeking a less intense fixer-upper will find it in this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Oakland City. The 1,480-square-foot property is already in the midst of a renovation, with the listing stating it’s 80-percent finished. Completed improvements include new granite countertops in the kitchen, hardwoods throughout, and new modular storage in the master bedroom. Current ask: $200,000
