About Intown Atlanta, Georgia
Intown Atlanta consists of hundreds of neighborhoods and communities. Each and every area offers a different feel, sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic. As you peruse through our list of communities you will find that a great many lie within the "Perimeter" (Interstate 285 that circles the hub of the city). The distinct flavor of each Atlanta community and neighborhood can often only be experienced and not explained. You can see a breakdown of communities we serve that lie fully or partially inside the perimeter by looking on our neighborhoods page under Atlanta.
Intown real estate is generally dramatically more expensive than suburban real estate. For example: A 30-year-old traditional brick ranch on a basement on a nice lot in Marietta may be $150,000. In Buckhead you might expect to pay over $400,000. It becomes the buyer's choice as to the importance given to close-in living compared with the importance of size, age and amenities of homes found farther from the city center. Frequently the final choice lies somewhere in between. You'll find a number of existing longtime Metro Atlanta homeowners who will move based on the changing location of their jobs, or based on whether their children are of school age. Those decisions are of course as individual as each of the homeowners who make them.
