I don't think Scottdale or Avondale are in your price range either and Clarkston is a little rough as well.

Historic Downtown "Bungalow" Clarkston is definitely worth looking into.

Old Fourth Ward might be an area to look at. You'll still have to do a little fixing up, and depending on how close you are to Boulevard safety varies. But the neighborhood is up and coming and close to some other already established neigborhoods.

I think you could find a house for 100k in Edgewood, Reynoldstown, or even parts of Kirkwood and East Lake. It will probably need a lot of work though. I cant comment on the safety, but im pretty sure that those neighborhoods are a lot safer than West End, or the unincorporated DeKalb County places you mentioned. Try to see which ones have the least amount of shady-looking apartments. Once those are taken down the neighborhoods turn around pretty quickly. Abondoned houses are another concern, but I would think that those neighborhoods are far enough along that they arent too common.

Interesting. Take a look at Google maps (or in real life if you are close), but there seems to be a whole lot of missing houses (shotgun bungalows?) in Edgewood just south of the Edgewood/Candler Park MARTA station.

Those look like either duplexes or apartment buildings from the street view and concrete slabs from the normal Google Earth view. I'd suppose the GE view is the most recent unless someone just decided to build rundown looking pieces of crap for some reason.

I'd bet they're gonna be building some pricey "Bungalows" there.

As long as its NOT a slum clearance/urban housing project... would much rather buy in a neighborhood that's about to get new bungalows (even if they might be low-income).
