A More Livable Buckhead?

ForLease Atlanta agents enjoy showing our clients around the beautiful areas of Atlanta, which of course always includes the stunning area of Buckhead, Georgia. This historically luxurious area has long been a place sought out by those interested in relocating to the wealthier side of Atlanta. However, one of the disadvantages long associated with this area has been the lack of green space; an interesting issue for an area found within the “City of Trees,” (nickname of Atlanta).

Livable Buckhead, Inc.

Livable Buckhead, Inc.’ project’s mission, “…strives to ensure the long term vitality and prosperity of the Buckhead community by working cooperatively with individuals, public entities and private businesses to integrate into everyday life and business sustainable strategies that improve the environment and  quality of life in the community.”

One focus of this project is to add green space to Buckhead, which is a very large initiative requiring loads of imagination, ingenuity, and support from the local community. Some of the initiatives for this part of the project includes:

  • Supporting existing parks in Buckhead.
  • Developing new parks of various sizes and functions in the Buckhead area.

Award Winning PATH 400

One of the new parks that has already begun is called PATH 400, recent winner of an E3 award for from the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce for “Moving the Needle” Innovative Greenway Project, Selected for Top Honors in Transportation Category.

What is PATH 400?

As the name suggests, PATH400 is a path that runs along GA 400 who’s first phase was recently opened in January 2015. Once complete, this path will provide a 5.2 mile greenway through the Buckhead area, and connect neighborhoods, office and retail locations. It can be used for pedestrians (walkers/runners), as well as bikers, and has so far been a hit with the local community. Plans for this path are to eventually connect with the Atlanta Beltline in the south and trails in Sandy Springs and north Fulton County. See the full plan pictured below:

Are You Prepared?

FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency), a sponsor of this PSA campaign, offers some excellent educational materials for those interested in making a disaster plan on the Ready Campaign website and at FEMA.org. Even if you do not use these helpful documents, please take the time to communicate with your family about what to do during a disaster or unexpected event. Being prepared can make a huge difference to everyone involved. If you live in Georgia, check out the Ready Georgia site for more information, as well as the others listed previously.

ForLease Atlanta hopes that you take time this month to discuss National Preparedness Month and what this means to you and your family. If you live in an Atlanta condo or apartment, or are looking for one, be sure to find out from the property managers what their disaster procedures are for natural disasters, like tornados and other severe weather; also ask about fire/flood procedures. When you have the property’s plan for your building, then you can add to it with your personal planning. If your building does not have much of a plan, take the time to seriously make one of your own, so you will be prepared. Good luck!


At ForLease Atlanta we will help you find the perfect Atlanta neighborhood to fit your lifestyle and budget. Contact us today so our agents can be your Atlanta condo and apartment locator! Please call us at 404-228-0913.

Leasing Tips for Bad Credit

shake

ForLease Atlanta’s friendly leasing experts want to help you decide on a beautiful Atlanta condo or apartment, regardless of your credit score. However, if you are unsure about even making an appointment with us due to your credit score, here are a few tips that show how you can still lease even with bad credit.

Bad Credit Doesn’t Always = Zero Optionsbc

If you are ready to make the move to Atlanta but have low/bad credit, here are some ways it may still be possible:

  • Co-Signer – Any easy fix for any bad credit situation is to get a co-signer i.e. someone who will take responsibility and guarantee any debt owed will be paid back. If you have a relative with good credit who is willing to co-sign on your lease, this may help persuade a landlord to give you a chance. A roommate with good credit is another person who may be allowed to co-sign the lease at the property you are interested in.
  • Proving Income – Perhaps a co-signer is out of the question, but even if you have bad credit, there is a reason people have coined the phrase, “money talks.” Have pay stubs available to show a potential landlord to prove you can pay for your space; it may also help to have reference letters and employment letters available as well, especially if you are a recent graduate. However, regardless of your age, these documents can help to prove that you are a responsible individual who will be a responsible tenant.
  • Housing Cost – It is important to search for places within your means, meaning something within one third of your take-home pay. Sometimes you can get approved for higher rates with good credit (though this is not always wise); however, with bad credit it is extremely important to follow this common housing cost rule. The good news is that our ForLease Atlanta agents can help you along by showing you spaces that match your price maximum.
  • Individual Landlords – Most large property management companies have very strict credit standards that can be tough to get around if you have bad credit, even using the above tips. Luckily, smaller properties owned by individual landlords have a much easier credit process in general (and sometimes they do not even check your credit). Whether from empathy or a lot of vacancies, these smaller places may be a great place to live while you begin to build your credit score back up!
