In this latest installment of Curbed Comparisons, we examine what $325,000—give or take $5,000—can buy around Atlanta right now.
At this price, potential buyers will find a wide selection of condos, primarily in Midtown and downtown, with some others scattered east and west of the city center.
Those searching for single-family homes with this budget will find an abundance west and southwest of downtown Atlanta. And the farther you head southwest, the larger the homes.
Let’s take a closer look.
Located on the outskirts of East Lake at the corner of North Ellington Street and Memorial Drive, this 1951 home received a full upgrade and now features new hardwood floors, windows, roof, and electrical and plumbing, as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Currently serving as an Airbnb, the My Hometown Realty Group listing also suggests the 1,020-square-foot property is “perfect for a home-based business or your company office location.” Current asking price: $329,900.
Overlooking Midtown from Peachtree Lofts, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom loft encompasses 1,136 square feet covered in polished concrete floors. Custom shelving adds much-needed storage, while a front-loading washer and dryer provide convenience. Monthly HOA fees of $461 cover such amenities as a 24/7 concierge, a fitness center, a swimming pool, and covered deeded parking. The current asking price for the ATL Realty listing is $330,000.
On Chappell Road in Mozley Park, straight west of downtown, this 1950 abode underwent a full renovation, resulting in an open floorplan in addition to three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The 2,106-square-foot home also includes a large concrete patio overlooking the spacious backyard as well as a one-car garage. Originally listed in December for $340,000, the Keller Williams Realty listing has received two price cuts, bringing down the current ask to $329,000.
Found on Princess Avenue in Oakland City, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage covers 1,742 square feet that now boasts an open floorplan. Design details range from the tiled fireplace to the farmhouse sink to the (requisite) barn door in the master bedroom. The property was first listed in November at $348,000 but has since received three price cuts. The Keller Williams Atlanta Intown listing now seeks $329,000.
One of 24 units at 764 Memorial, across from Atlanta Dairies in Reynoldstown, this 839-square-foot condo contains one bedroom and one bathroom on the top floor. That space is further extended slightly with the small private balcony. For monthly HOA fees of $252, building amenities include an assigned parking space, a fitness center, and indoor and outdoor common areas. Listed with Engel & Volkers, the current asking price is $324,900.
