Searching for a Deal? Try Medlock Park

 

Medlock Park Sign and HomeIf you are searching for a deal, try Medlock Park as one of your options.  When I say “deal” I don’t mean that you can buy a house today and flip it and sell for $100’s of thousands of dollars more in a mere couple of months.  What I mean by “deal” is that Medlock Park will provide homes that aren’t going to break the wallet yet still be located ITP and within a reasonable driving distance to major attractions.

 

Medlock Park isn’t super glamorous in the fact that it doesn’t really have shopping or restaurants in the neighborhood itself.  Instead, it is a pretty basic neighborhood filled with ranch and cottage style homes.  However, the prices of these homes are in the $200-$300K range, which these days is getting harder and harder to find in many of the intown neighborhoods.  In fact, just over this Spring of 2016, I’ve personally seen a home priced in the $210K range with 2 beds/1 bath and just over 1,000 sq ft home get 10 offers on it!  I think that is a pretty good indicator of the demand for an affordable home.

 

HERE ARE 3 THINGS THAT I LIKE ABOUT MEDLOCK PARK:

 
1) Affordability
 

Homes range in the $200-$300K.  Don’t expect mansions in this area, although occasionally you will find a slightly bigger home.  Expect small cottage or ranch style homes with anywhere from 1,000-1,700 sq ft.  The streets are quiet, peaceful, and filled with friendly neighbors.Medlock Park Homes

 

 

 
2) Located ITP
 

Medlock Park is very close to popular intown areas such as Decatur and Emory/Druid Hills AND it’s getting more and more retail nearby (Sprouts is coming soon plus Wal-Mart, HomeGoods, Starbucks, and a few other stores just opened up at the corner of North Decatur and Scott Blvd).

3) The Park!
 

Medlock Park does indeed have a nice park called, you guessed it, Medlock Park! It’s complete with a playground, baseball fields, and a swimming pool.
