Just last week, I wrote about the looming “intown” apartment boom in the Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward/Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail corridor. 1259 apartments- a certifiable boom! Never to be outdone by “intown”, Buckhead and Brookhaven are going through their own boom. From the Atlanta Business Chronicle: In total, there are 1,097 units under construction and [...]Show More Summary
The Inman Park Beer Chase combines running (a 5k road race), beer (a craft beer festival) and public safety (it benefits the Inman Park Security Patrol). I could probably end this post after one sentence (perhaps a second sentence letting you know that it takes place this Saturday, October 27 might be appropriate)… but then [...]Show More Summary
The Atlanta BeltLine’s much anticipated Eastside Trail will have its grand opening on Monday at 10 a.m., at Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark. This is a really big deal. If you don’t know what the Atlanta BeltLine is, or you know but can’t remember the details, I’ve bolded some basic questions below… and used the BeltLine’s [...]
I’ve been hearing pretty consistent “oohs and ahhs” about my new listing at 307 Milledge Avenue in Grant Park. I figured that it was only fair to introduce the brains behind the beauty, Jeff Gaines of Strategic Construction Services. Jeff worked tirelessly on the restoration of this historic charmer, and the results speak for themselves. [...]

We interupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this special announcement: We’ll return to a more “normal” blogging schedule in the not too distant future…
Joe Truex is the Executive Chef at Watershed On Peachtree, a reincarnation of the original Decatur classic. If you’ve eaten his food- whether at Watershed or at his previous Atlanta restaurant, Repast, you know that the dude knows his food. A quick look under the chef’s toque reveal his thoughts on where Daniel Boulud should [...]
Everyone loves a classic. What they don’t love, however, is that the classics often need to be renovated. Not fun, unless you’ve got a pile of cash, vision, and a stomach for adventure. I just listed one of those rare, fully renovated classics that bridges the gap between 1930 and 2012 quite nicely. Just two [...]
By day, Greg Zinman is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Georgia Tech’s School of Literature, Communication and Culture. By night, he is one of Atlanta’s leading curators of visual arts. This Saturday, he’ll be presenting Inner/Outer Space, a live visual spectacle at 489 Edgewood. If you like psychedelia, old NASA videos, Andy Warhol and electro-acoustic [...]
Homes, like everything else that’s offered for sale (save for Twinkies), eventually go stale. It’s a matter of subjectivity as to when a home for sale crosses the rubicon from attractive and desirable to moldy and undesirable. In the current market, some buyers question homes that have been on on market for over 30 days. [...]
I’ve got some new exterior snapshots of my listing at Litchfield Hundred in Roswell. It’s a beautiful home, and its on a pretty stunning piece of property. I’ll make this short and sweet: 5,800 square feet. Over an acre of land. Gorgeous interior. Lovely swim/tennis community. $585,000. Pretty phenomenal opportunity. Call me to schedule an [...]

David Payne is the co-founder of Scoutmob, an Atlanta-based startup that combines 3 things that I love: Atlanta, local businesses and a good deal. While Mr. Payne should be out finding local deals (Scoutmob officially launches today), I've managed to sequester him at A Is For Atlanta HQ, to answer a question or two...Q. Show More Summary
Ok, so I've been a little behind in posting recently. Ok, a lot behind. But it's all for a good reason: I'm in the process of relaunching AisForAtlanta, version 2.0. That's right folks, the little blog that could is not only getting a facelift, but a whole new lease on life. So stick tight. Sporadic blogging, just for a few more days.
Single men, it turns out, are single for a reason. Dudes just can’t commit!Pretty interesting article in the New York Times this week about the phenomenon of single men that prefer renting to buying. According to the National Association...Show More Summary
According to the National Association of Realtors, the average home buyer visits 10-12 homes before making a decision. While this number vacillates depending on circumstances, it's a pretty realistic yardstick for home searches. Ultimately, the primary "circumstance" at play is the home buyer him/herself.

I'm not sure who to attribute the quote "new year, new you" to, but there's undoubtedly truth to the age old maxim. If you're looking to do a little self-renewal, check out Bliss Spa in the W Hotel Downtown for tension busting, new-you-loving spa treatments. Show More Summary
Peter Tiller (for RealtyTrac, for the AJC) takes my last post a step further with his prognosis for real estate in 2010. Since we're not even one week in into 2010, it's probably a little too early to start passing judgement on his picks, but he definitely provides food for thought. Show More Summary
A huge happy New Year shout-out to my old friend and colleague Amir Korangy. He's the founder and publisher of The Real Deal, a must-read New York real estate broadsheet/website, and an all around good dude. We cut our teeth together back in the go-go 90's, and now he's on CNBC giving real estate tips to the masses. Watch, listen, and learn...
Kudos to Kristina Torres at the Atlanta Journal Constitution for her fascinating piece today on the abandoned Whittaker School campus. Built in 1959, the 1.62 acre Huff Road campus is home to a string of unique hexagonal "pod-like" buildings. Show More Summary
