Best 'Hood to Get a House for a Steal: Capitol View

Staff Pick

In 2007, a shit storm hit the real estate market. Credit dried up. Sales tumbled. Prices collapsed. If there’s an upside, it’s that one person’s shit storm is another person’s fertile field. First-time home buyers with good credit never had it better. There are deals nearly everywhere you look, but few intown neighborhoods have mo’ betta steals than CAPITOL VIEW. Three stops south of Five Points on MARTA, this gentrifying, tree-lined enclave is loaded with renovated bungalows and ranches for around $130,000 – or roughly $800 a month for a 30-year fixed mortgage. And if you’re not afraid of buying a foreclosure, there are dozens of houses available for less than what a lot of people pay for cars.
