So, in my recent real estate hunt, I've found I have a penchant more towards MCM, with craftsman coming in as a close second.

So far, I've been able to isolate the East Cobb Marietta area, Northcrest area - with the odd home in the Buckhead region.

For those who are more familiar, any suggested areas to look at?

North Druid Hills and surrounding. Most of all the subdivisions in area were built in the 1940's to 1960's. Lot of brick ranch.

Oh, sorry, you said Mid Century Modern. My bad.

Check some the nicer neighborhoods down around Cascade.

I'm never opposed to modernizing something of the sort

I think the hardest requirement it appears though is a 2-car garage ( my gf, who has been trying to convince me of buying something ITP, has been ripping her hair out at that requirement )

Whatever your budget is, get something that costs maybe half that, then spend the other half totally revamping and modernizing it. That would be so fun.

I love Mid-Century homes too. In the Atlanta area, you really can't go wrong with Doraville and Chamblee. I think Doraville is where the Northcrest subdivision is but not 100% certain. The Doraville area is famous for having one of the largest collections of Mid-Century homes in the nation. A lot of the area was built around the time the GM plant opened and people poured in to work there. It just so happens that Mid-Century modern was in vogue at the same time. When I make my first real estate investment in the Atlanta area, this will probably be where I will do so.

Thanks!
