Property management recos for West-side ITP neighborhoods

4 Replies | Atlanta, Georgia

Hello Atlanta BP Community!

We are an out-of-state investor couple looking to purchase a turnkey SFH, in the west side of Atlanta, we are primarily looking at Grove Park, but are also open to other west-side neighborhoods, English Avenue, Vine City, Ashview Heights, as well as neighborhoods along the SW stretch of the beltline - West Lake, West View, West End, Oakland City, Adair Park, Pittsburgh, We are not new to RE investing but it will be the first time we are doing it out of state and we realize property management is absolutely the key to the success of this investment. are there any property management companies that have experience with managing SFHs in these neighborhoods that the BP community here would like to recommend?

Thank you and look forward to meeting many of you in the coming months and years as we want to be in Atlanta for the long term!

Welcome, Hansen! 

I'm pretty new to BP, but not Atlanta.  There are definitely areas to be focusing on ITP and others that you need to avoid.  One of the awesome aspects of Atlanta is that there is a niche for any person living ITP.  Some of these areas can be an awesome place to live and/or invest in, but just down the street can be...not so much.  I suggest doing your due diligence in these areas regarding reported crime, commercial zoning, and rated school districts.  Those can make all the difference sometimes.  

Feel free to reach out with any other questions, and best of luck!

 Thank you for the heads up, Patrick, I would say I have broad understanding of different neighbourhoods on a macro level, but more due diligence at the street/block level is needed, I also plan to travel to Atlanta in early-mid September to see for myself
