Any "coming soon" in the Park under 550k? Looking for a late September close...let me know! (Not a realtor, just would like to buy in Grant Park)

Look either in the North portion of Grant Park along Abernathy, a little South of Grant Park along McDonough Pkwy or in Summerhill or Peoplestown just West. Honestly, with the GA State U expansion coming, I'd look West of it if you want maximum ROI

We're looking in the same area, but our budget maxes out at $450K. At 550K you should be able to live off Cherokee Ave facing the park if that's something you want. 511 Cherokee Ave SE was a home that sold recently in that area that we saw (just for kicks). Amazing house. We've been looking for six months, but your budget is higher than most so you should have it a little easier. That said, your "late September" closing date is going to hurt you. Sellers in Grant Park, from what we've seen, typically want 30 day closes, and definitely do not want any contingencies on selling your home (not sure if that's an issue). I think that might be less of an issue if you're over $500K.

That budget gets you where you want to be, the only think you might struggle with is if you want to both live right near the park and live in a new build home. How open are you to being in the surrounding neighborhoods? Our realtor is showing a house for $550K this weekend but its in Ormewood Park (East of Grant Park). Its near the Beltline if that's important to you. Again, way out of our budget but it might check off a lot of boxes for you. PM if you want me to give you the address, it isn't listed on MLS yet.

Either way, again, your budget gets you all the bells and whistles in Grant Park (outside of the $800K Victorian houses of course). I know a few houses for sale right now around $450K near the park that didn't interest us because they needed some work. If you're willing to do some renovation they might work for you. There's a gorgeous one two blocks from the park, but it doesn't have offstreet parking. Again, PM if you want the address. Its sat for two weeks now so you might be able to talk them down further.
