The Atlanta real estate neighborhood called Home Park is also frequently referred to as West Midtown, as the I-75/85 Downtown Connector splits it from the rest of Midtown. Separated somewhat into residential and commercial districts, Home Park’s tree-lined streets can make you feel like you are in the suburbs instead of the city. Because it lies just north of the sprawling Georgia Tech complex, many homes are occupied by students. The Home Park Community Improvement Association (HPCIA) actively partners with Georgia Tech to help keep the neighborhood clean and safe.
Due to the large GT student population, a full 72 percent of Home Park residents live in rentals while only 28 percent own their homes. Unlike many midtown neighborhoods, Home Park offers a variety of single family homes in addition to condominiums and apartments. The median home value in Home Park is $196,399 and the average monthly rent payment is $1,235. Cheap homes are available in Home Park, as twenty percent of rentals range from $500 a month to $999.
