Possibly Doraville which is going to get revitalized with the demolition of the GM plant and destruction/relocation of lower income housing to northern Gwinett.
Your not going to find a townhome that cheap in Northern Gwinnett.
Townhomes in this area will advertise from the 170's stripped, but will end up in the mid 200's by the time a person finishes with the product and that is not counting your monthly fees.

The only place in Gwinnett for housing this cheap would off Jimmy Carter in Norcross and even that area is getting ready for a re-vamp.

There are decent communities in Smyrna that have a reasonable commute where you can get a good townhome for well under 200.

But again there are communities built in the 80s. The ones for sale will vary on how updated they are and condition, but there are good ones to be had and you can live in an area with good access...

There are several condos just outside the top end perimeter in what is considered Dunwoody. They aren't new but the overall location is excellent. Two bedrooms start in the high 150s. You are only a short drive from two Marta stations. Check out zip code 30338 - condos: Wrens Cross, Dunwoody Ridge and North Forest.

There is a new townhouse SD by Factory Shoals and Six Flags Rd. I'm not sure if that is Cobb or Fulton there, but they are nice units with garages.
