In a few of our more recent posts, we’ve highlighted the many wonderful communities that central Atlanta has to offer. From Old Fourth Ward to Midtown to Buckhead to downtown to Kirkwood to Inman park to Poncey-Highlands…there’s a lot to like about the idea of living in the heart of Atlanta.

In today’s post, we are going to continue with the trend, with a slight twist — highlighting some nearby neighborhoods that aren’t in the proper heart of Atlanta, yet still have a lot to offer.

There are customs and traditions that surround the holidays that you cherished growing up. These are activities that you, your siblings and your parents loved and enjoyed together every year.

In the real estate business, curb appeal is known as the frosting on the cake and it refers to the overall appearance of a property from the street. People who are shopping for a new home will often drive by a property that is for sale and inspect it before making a decision to take a look at the inside or not.

This means that if your home doesn’t look desirable from the outside, you will have a difficult time getting anybody to take a look at the inside. Yes, curb appeal is that important. So if you are considering petting your home n the market, it is in your best interest to make your home as appealing as possible on the outside. It doesn’t matter how awesome the interior of your home is, nobody is interested in looking at it if you don’t have curb

Atlanta’s First Planned Residential Suburb

Back in the late 1800’s, city workers lived and worked in the bustling downtown area. In an effort to obtain more peace and quiet for residents, Joel Hurt began building homes two miles east of downtown Atlanta on the land previously destroyed during the Civil War.

In our last blog, we explained the difference between OTP and ITP. As you may remember, living ITP means you live inside the perimeter in the heart of Atlanta. If you live OTP, you live in its surrounding suburbs. Although we highlighted the perks of living ITP, we failed to mention the perks of living OTP. If you have a family, living outside the perimeter might be the best option for you.

Safety

Unfortunately, one of the major downfalls of living in an urban environment is crime. It’s not unusual to have your car broken into in the city if you leave it parked on the street overnight. Although crime happens anywhere, including the suburbs, it won’t occur at the frequency it would in the city.
