Explore houses for sale in one of the most iconic Southern cities in the country: Atlanta. Visitors flock here for the world-renowned attractions and stay for the prime real estate. Home buyers find single family homes all across the city in a wide variety of neighborhoods. Purchase a quaint Victorian-style residence in Inman Park, or a cozy two bedroom home west of Downtown. Multi-story estates in West Paces are a great choice for large families who have the budget. With its fairly moderate housing market, Atlanta has homes to fit everyone’s lifestyle.

Houses for sale in Atlanta are listed all across the Buckhead region and usually with a high price tag. It is not uncommon for houses in the ritzy northern neighborhoods of Atlanta to have more than five bedrooms, with some residences having as many as nine. A mansion like these found in Buckhead offer luxury amenities and plenty of extra space, including elaborate gardens and yards. Other popular amenities frequently include the following:

  • A courtyard
  • Private bathrooms for each bedroom
  • Multiple garages
  • Fireplaces

It is not surprising with the size and extravagance of these homes for prices to reach well over $1 million or even $2 million. The high value of these properties is also reflected by the surrounding shops, restaurants and schools, which include fine dining like The Capital Grill or Atlas, designer boutiques and prestigious academies for kids to attend.

History enthusiasts will fall in love with Atlanta homes, particularly in the historic districts around the East region of the city. The canopy-lined streets lead to renovated Victorian-style houses, complete with wrap-around porches, bay windows and turrets. Most of these residences have more than four bedrooms, with prices ranging between $700,000 and $2.0 million. Though the architecture goes back hundreds of years, most of these neighborhoods are up-and-coming. There are plenty of quirky cafes and bars for artists, foodies and trendsetters to enjoy, such as Dancing Goats Coffee Bar located in Old Fourth Ward. Some other popular historical neighborhoods include:

  • Virginia Highland
  • Inman Park
  • Grant Park
  • Kirkwood

As you take your search for houses in Atlanta farther west, the prices begin to fall. Neighborhoods in West Atlanta offer listings with more space for the price, but fewer amenities. Most listings are for at least a two bedroom residence. Simple one story homes or residences with a basement area are common across this part of the city, in neighborhoods stretching from Fairburn Heights all the way to Atlanta University Center, just west of Downtown.

Home sale prices are generally under the national average in West Atlanta. Families seeking housing on this side of Atlanta can expect prices to vary drastically from listing to listing. A three bedroom house with a nice porch and an updated kitchen is occasionally available for under 150k. Some buyers can even find a fixer upper for under 75k and turn it into a decent residence, either to live in or to rent to others.

Of course, living this far from the city center means personal transportation is a must, and local shops and restaurants are mostly national chains. On the plus side, the neighborhoods are quiet and peaceful, and Downtown is just a short drive away.

You will find fewer Atlanta homes for sale the closer you get to the city center. Metropolitan areas like Downtown and Midtown largely consist of apartments and other urban-style housing to accommodate for the higher population density. There are occasionally houses available just outside of the city center, but you have to know where to look. A few pop up around the edge of Midtown and in neighborhoods heading farther north, like Sherwood Forest and Ansley Park.

Due to their scarcity, homes in this part of the city are higher in price than in the East and West regions, and generally offer less space than options in Buckhead neighborhoods. Prices for three bedroom residences in Ansley Park and Sherwood Forest hover between $950,000 and $1.5 million. While these single family homes lack the yard space of sprawling estates farther north, they make up for it in amenities and proximity to the main city attractions, like the nearby Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) or the Mercedes Benz Stadium Downtown. Comforts include the latest appliances, terraces, picturesque covered porches and sunrooms.
