Atlanta has a lot to offer singles, young professionals and families. The diverse city boasts easy access to eclectic nightlife, international cuisines, transportation, shopping, entertainment, sporting events and green spaces – and the sky-high rent prices to match.
Renters in Atlanta pay up to $2500 per month to live in the popular communities inside the perimeter – that’s an astounding $30,000 spent each year on rent alone. And what do they get for it? Weekend walks on the Belt Line and no equity. Extra costs for pets, limited parking and no privacy. At some properties, they can’t even mount frames on the wall if they hope to see a fraction of their security deposit upon move out.
“With in-town real estate prices starting at nearly half a million dollars, homeownership is out of reach for many of the city’s renters who don’t want to sacrifice lifestyle for location,” explains Makeda McCray, sales agent for Brock Built Homes. “Instead, they pay premium rent prices to live near their favorite local businesses and defer home ownership until they are ready to move to the suburbs where real estate is more affordable. Or they hope for a miraculous change to their financial circumstances that will enable them to buy a home in the community they love. But, in the westside townhome community of Park at Monroe, singles and young families can have it all by investing in their future – as in-town homeowners.”
Local Atlanta homebuilder Brock Built Homes created a real estate unicorn in Park at Monroe. With new homes for sale below the company’s typical price point, Park at Monroe offers the same high-end finishes, superior craftsmanship and community green space that people expect from Brock Built communities, without the added cost.
Throughout the tree-lined community, the 1,465-sf townhomes offer an easy entry point for first time homeownership. Each three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home features a main open floor plan with tons of storage and enough outdoor space for playtime with four-legged friends. Notably, the modern townhomes offer more space than average Atlanta rentals, but not so much that new homeowners are overwhelmed by increased maintenance responsibilities that typically come with single family homes. At Park at Monroe, former renters can comfortably upgrade from one-bedroom to three by creating a dedicated office space and guest room for family and friends.
In fact, Park at Monroe was built with first-time homeowners in mind. With an accessible starting price of the high $200’s, the neighborhood is perfect for renters who want to take advantage of historically low interest rates without taking on complicated, costly renovation projects. Each townhome is move-in ready with high-end finishes like granite and/or quartz countertops, a central kitchen island, custom cabinets, and a luxurious master suite bathroom with double-vanity and walk-in shower. The other full bath includes a combination bathtub-shower to maximize the use of space. Homeowners reap all the benefits of new construction without having to make decisions on hundreds of design details. And unlike apartment communities, there’s no fighting over premium parking, as each home features its own two-car garage.
Landscaped trails provide idyllic pathways through the neighborhood around the 40 brand new townhomes arranged in short rows to maximize end unit availability. And residents love having all the benefits of a shared green spaces and a private on-site dog park without any of the responsibility that comes with maintaining a yard.
Located just ten minutes from downtown Atlanta, Park at Monroe is built within an established residential community on the westside of the city. It offers quick access to favorite Atlanta landmarks like the Belt Line, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and popular restaurants and bars. For less than the annual cost of renting, Park at Monroe offers the perfect opportunity for Atlantans to make their someday dream of homeownership a reality today.
