1. Why should we consider Brookhaven?

Greater Atlanta offers many options for home buyers. From Buckhead homes to Sandy Spring properties to Midtown, Dunwoody, and East Cobb, it can be difficult to narrow your focus on the area that best suits your needs.

Bill recommends Brookhaven realty to buyers because of the excellent value it offers:

  • While Brookhaven is its own city, it's located within the I-285 perimeter. That means that you may benefit from lower taxes without sacrificing easy access to the city.
  • Brookhaven neighborhoods offer a suburban lifestyle with the resources of city living.
  • Brookhaven realty properties may provide more square footage than homes in other areas of Greater Atlanta.

2. What can we expect to pay for a home in Brookhaven?

Brookhaven offers a range of home pricing. For example, Historic Brookhaven homes, which surround the Capital City Country Club, make up one of Greater Atlanta's wealthiest neighborhoods. According to Trulia.com, homes reached an average of $830,000 in the period between June and August 2013.

Beyond mansions and estates, Brookhaven realty also offers updated bungalows and craftsmen properties. Bill Ames can help buyers find the perfect high-end home as well as identify properties that are available for significantly less than the range above.
