Hello,

I am looking for a townhome in metro-atlanta and do not want to spend more then $120,000. I discovered that Pulte community reduced its prices from $140,000. It was not advertised I just happend to stop in to look. Anyone know of any other price reductions?

Thanks!!

Do you have a general idea of where you're looking? "Metro Atlanta" is a pretty big place.....

not to far from downtown-Futon, Cobb, Dekalb, Gwinnett Counties. I work in midtown so I am worried about the commute.

Don't limit yourself to new construction. There are many options out there for existing townhomes.

It's really cheap at this price for a new townhome near downtown/midtown.

I found a nice one near Camp Creek Marketplace but I would like to see others in my price range. Any suggestions?

If you want a townhome in metro Atlanta or the surrounding area for $120,000 or less make sure the builder is giving away free Kevlar and don't forget to empty your car in the evening and activate the LO Jack.

As an example, a new townhome in Smyrna/Vinings would never be priced that low, even to dump it. The $140s must be in less desirable areas. There are a few small older condos and townhomes in the Cumberland area of Smyrna and Vinings for around that amount, and apartment conversions as well, but new townhomes start in the mid to low $200s and run all the way into the $800s in Smyrna/Vinings.

I would seriously doubt you can find anything for 220k let alone 120k in a half decent area with a good commute. If I were you I would rent and save some more money or possibly get a fixer up apartment close to the marta that you could build some sweat equity into. 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.
