We all know the areas well into the gentrification process. Considering the economic downturn,which neighborhoods could be next? Will it be areas that are somwhat stable? Neighborhoods starting to decline ? or communities that have hit rock bottom?

I'm one who firmly believes people will continue to come back to the city limits.

Well, I know everyone loves Grant Park/Inman Park area and I still don't think those N-hoods are complete. Way too much crime, but everyone else thinks so.

The next spot I'd say would either by across 75/85 from Turner Field/Grant Park area, but the Northside/Howell Mill areas west of 75/85 are probably closer.

Like GT6974a said, the area west of Northside/Howell Mill at 75 are one of them, but the area has been "up and coming" for years. We bought a house in this area just over 3 years ago after seeing what was happening...but, unfortunately, none of it has happened. The Moore's Mill Shopping Center area has been stalled time and time again by bureaucratic red tape, and some of the not-very nice areas which were slated for "gentrification" are still sitting as they were. I can only hope something happens here before I lose my ass when it's time to sell.

I'd say Old Fourth Ward. It's just on the outskirts of a lot of gentrification and there's been a great deal of talk about development projects in the area.

Old 4th Ward is certainly an area worth considering. Reynoldstown ,which is near Grant Park and Inman Park, is one area I'm keeping an eye on. Are West End, Collier Heights,and Sylvan Hills bad areas to catch the next "hot thing" ?

Something to consider, regardless of which area you're considering, is that we're probably not going to see a "hot thing" like we saw over the past decade once things start to rebound. While we'll hopefully see some appreciation, the days of double-digit year-over-year increases are probably long gone, so whatever you do, you're likely to have to stay in for the long haul, as the quick buck won't be anywhere near as common as it was.

BobKovacs, your are probably correct. That's why my initial inquiry made reference to the economy. Thanks.

BTW, I'm not too familiar with the Blandtown, Underwood Hills area around Howell Mills, but I will check.

I think Grant Park is a good choice. With the economic downturn it has become pretty affordable.
