Founded as a railroad town in the mid-1800s in Georgia, Atlanta's style has never been particularly southern. Prospective buyers can find condos, modern designs, warehouse lofts, Tudors, Victorians, and everything in between. This bustling city offers a wide variety of housing prices from conservative to outlandish.
Atlanta has an eclectic mix of established and up-and-coming neighborhoods. The Old Fourth Ward is a prime example of a hidden gem community. Gritty at first glance, this neighborhood is worth taking a deeper look into to see restored historic architecture, beautiful parks and warehouses transformed into loft homes, restaurants and retail shops. Head over to the Westside neighborhood for a more hip and modern vibe. Housing options here include large loft spaces and luxury condos. To find more traditional single-family homes ranging from $200,000 to $700,000 and above, visit the Glenwood Park neighborhood. Its older counterpart Ormewood Park is a sleepy and lush location dotted with Craftsman-style homes, shotguns, and brick bungalows dating around the 1920s. From ultra-chic and modern to classic and traditional, Atlanta boasts a broad range of options for any style and price point.
Containing the third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies, Atlanta is home to The Coca-Cola Company, AT&T, and Delta Airlines, to name a few. The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is not only the world's busiest airport but serves a vital role in Atlanta's economy. As a counterpart to the transportation industry, media and film are also influential. With a large tax incentive, many film and television productions have flocked to Atlanta resulting in tremendous economic growth. Information technology is also a quickly growing industry in the area. Employment in software development, entertainment technology, and data processing is expected to increase rapidly over the next five years. In addition to these industries, Atlanta has cultivated a diverse restaurant and art scene. Regardless of career and passion, there is something for everyone in Atlanta.
