Moving to the city is becoming less and less of a hassle these days.  The times of being afraid of the hustle and bustle of traffic, freeway noise and living too close to busy streets are almost gone.  Community friendly neighborhoods with restored and new homes, great parks and charter schools are some of the best things about a house purchase in the city.  Here is another up and coming Beltline neighborhood called Adair Park.   Situated a few blocks southwest of I 20 and most commonly called the SWATS (short for South West Atlanta), this historic area highlights nice fixer uppers with a lot of character and reasonable prices.  My bet is that this is a perfect place to buy a home and put a little DIY work into it to showcase a modern renovation in an old time bungalow.   The main streets that run through Adair Park would be Metropolitan Parkway, University Ave and Ralph David Abernathy.   Some of the many features of this wonderful neighborhood is its four distinct parks, its close proximity to Turner Field, GA Dome, Georgia World Congress Center, Phillips Arena and of course direct access to the Atlanta Beltline.  Currently on the market in Adair Park is a handful of properties ranging  in price from $70K to low $200's.  I think there is a lot to be said about a community with very few listings because it could most certainly mean that homeowners love their neighborhood and are not willing to sell.   This area is also attractive for the investor looking to have a decent rental income because Atlanta Metropolitan College and Atlanta Area Tech are nearby.   Being surrounded by I 20 and I 75/85 is an important factor for people in search of Adair Park, which translates to having a shorter commute to and from work.  I know that a top priority for me when I was single and now with a family is short drive time.  I only looked at places that were within a 15 to 25 minute commute and no more than a mile from the nearest freeway entrance.   Some call it lazy but most people hate being in their cars for a long period of time after leaving a long days work.  The sooner you make it home to relax the better because now you have added time to spend with the family.  I like the Adair Park neighborhood.  It's intown, not too far south and still Atlanta proper, the homes have awesome potential, and the prices are good.  If you would like to see available homes in this community click the following link http://www.ga.exprealty.com/areas/Adair_Park or feel free to contact the Beltline Specialist with eXp Realty Pauline Bowman at 678-682-1221 mailto:pauline.bowman@exprealty.com
