Buying Brookhaven Homes
Because Brookhaven is part of Dekalb County, buyers may enjoy several benefits, including lower taxes and a lower overall cost as well as more square footage for the dollar. At the same time, the area includes many convenient resources and is centrally located in Atlanta. Its neighborhoods include:
Historic Brookhaven, with high-end homes surrounding the Capital City Country Club.
Brookhaven Village, located near commercial properties and offices.
Lynwood Park, a neighborhood with burgeoning home construction and playground and picnic areas.
North Brookhaven, a suburban area home to various residential subdivisions and parks.
Buford Highway, an international corridor with high-density housing and a growing multi-ethnic population.
Lenox Park, a former country club in the southwest that has become home to residential and commercial owners.
Peachtree Road, connecting Brookhaven to Buckhead and Chamblee.
The addition of Town Brookhaven, a mixed-use district with retail and restaurant options, has made Brookhaven homes even more attractive options for those seeking an in-town property.
Along with the parks and green space, Brookhaven offers easy access to Ashford-Dunwoody Road, I-285, Peachtree Road, and I-85. It is served by a centrally-located MARTA station. Brookhaven homes also give buyers access to a variety of public school options and a host of great private institutions.
Selling Brookhaven Homes
The unique position that Brookhaven offers—central location, generally lower taxes, and a suburban lifestyle—make properties in the area popular among Atlanta real estate buyers. However, it's essential for sellers to price homes appropriately in order to maximize their return.
Bill Ames and Ames Realty Group typically advise clients to evaluate their home with a critical eye. The longer a property is on the market, the less likely it will sell for its original listing price, and the more likely that you will have to drop the price and make concessions in negotiation. In general, pricing the home correctly up front earns you more money.
Many homes in Brookhaven maintain original historical features. This authenticity and charm may be exactly what a buyer wants, but if the home lacks modern updates, the price may need to be adjusted. Bill Ames can work with you to enhance your Brookhaven home for a dollar-for-dollar return.
Bill has a lengthy and successful history of buying and selling properties in Brookhaven. He uses this expertise as well as special tools and software to conduct a historical analysis on comparable properties. Then, he'll work with you to list the property for a price that gets the greatest value possible.
