The Street of Buckhead was assembled by native Atlantan Ben Carter who paid top dollar to buy an odd assortment of clubs and bars that did not give the sort of image that most in Buckhead would be proud of. In 2007, after spending a small fortune to acquire all of the land in a prime Buckhead location at Pharr Rd and Peachtree Road, Carter began construction on what was envisioned to be half a million square feet of high-end retail and restauraunts, along with a hotel and condos.[gallery link="file" columns="2" orderby="rand"] But things have not gone as planned....in the past week both the Wall Street Journal and the AJC have reported that the stalled project is in talks with new private investors who may be giving up to $200 million to see the…

We've all seen the shows on HGTV and elsewhere that ask the question "How much house can I afford in this city?" So in an effort to help educate buyers and sellers in Smyrna and Vinings we want to answer that question.
The average single family home sold in Smyrna last year was a 4 bedroom, 4 full and 1 half bath newer construction home for $268,000. In Vinings the average was much higher at $674,000 for a 4 bedroom, 4 full and 1 half bath brick home. Having said that, the range in Vinings was $210,000 to $1.5million and Smyrna homes sold between $20,000 and $1.5million. Condos and townhomes told a similar story with sales in Smyrna between $25,000 and $712,000 while the Vinings range was $45,000 to $878,000.
