With the many distinct neighborhoods and local attractions to explore, Atlanta properties have a ton to offer new and old residents, as well as individuals looking to invest in top real estate. Purchasing a duplex for sale is great as both an investment opportunity and a housing option for large families who want their own separate space. Whether you are buying a duplex to share with family or working on a fixer upper to rent out to a few tenants, you will be sure to get the full Southern experience.

ATL duplexes vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, each having its own style and sense of community. You don’t want to miss out on some of the best comfort food around and the activities that you can only find here. To start off your search, here are examples of the listings you will find, along with estimated price ranges:

  • A property in need of renovations: $25,000 to $115,000
  • A newly restored two bedroom duplex: $200,000 to $450,000
  • A renovated duplex in a popular neighborhood: $300,000 to $1.3 million

A good place to begin your search for a duplex for sale in Atlanta is just outside the main business district of Downtown, in the East and West sections of the city. It is vital to know what type of duplex you want to purchase and the amount of upkeep you are willing to support, as there are many different options available. The most affordable properties are in the western neighborhoods, such as:

  • Grove Park
  • Hunter Hills
  • Bankhead

In these communities, you will find lots of local fixer upper homes for under $50k, waiting for the right buyer to start renovations and create a beautiful new property. While not as glamorous as other locations throughout the city, this option provides a great investment opportunity and helps improve local property values.

Plenty of duplexes are also up for purchase in the eastern neighborhoods, known for being very family-friendly and trendy. ATL homes are often priced higher here, as these are some of the most beloved and up-and-coming communities in the city. The scenery of the nearby historical districts creates a cozy, yet still urban atmosphere. While starting at around $325k, most listings are for large, renovated homes, with many originally built in the Victorian-style during the early 1900s. Look for these types of properties for sale in:

  • Edgewood
  • Cabbagetown
  • Atkins Park

There are occasionally a few listings for an Atlanta duplex for sale in the Midtown area, though these have much higher starting prices due to their prime location. Midtown duplexes are usually listed for at least $500k. Views of Piedmont Park and the city show how close the Downtown attractions are to your front door. Some of the city’s best features are only a short walk away, made even more accessible by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transport Authority (MARTA).

In addition to their central location, these residences boast luxury amenities and designer renovations, from hardwood floors and unique kitchen backsplashes to updated appliances and skylights. These are great spots to rent out to local college students or for visitors on popular lodge-sharing sites. Look to these neighborhoods for the best places to purchase:

  • Midtown
  • Home Park
  • Ansley Park

Atlanta duplexes are not as popular north of Midtown. Areas like Buckhead provide mostly expansive single family homes and luxury apartments for purchase. The few duplex homes that do pop up around Buckhead are likely to be some of the most expensive, with many residences listed for over $1 million. These northern neighborhoods have an almost urban fairytale vibe, mixing the upscale local attractions with beautiful forest landscapes.

Many of the duplex listings are in neighborhoods right between the Buckhead business district and Midtown. This location gives you easy access to all of the fun activities around Downtown, as well as the upscale retail centers in the north part of the city. Take the MARTA Downtown to visit Zoo Atlanta, or head up to Phipps Plaza for a day of shopping or a movie at the dine-in theater. Explore neighborhoods like these and start experiencing Atlanta living today:

  • Collier Hills
  • Springlake
  • Peachtree Heights West/East
