Buckhead homes for sale are starting to look like bargains. Falling real estate prices are becoming as much a feature of high-end neighborhoods as wine cellars, infinity pools and four-car garages. During-and after-a bubble, investors often hope that "quality assets" will hold value. It's usually a vain hope. Just ask people who owned luxury condos in Tokyo after 1990, or investors in Cisco Systems (CSCO) after the tech-stock bubble popped. Real estate is not that different.

One River Place has great amenities, fine finishes and spectacular views of the Chattahoochee River. What it - and nine other major Atlanta condo projects backed by failed lender Corus Bank - doesn't have is clarity. The Trammell Crow Residential development along Powers Ferry Road is part of the Corus condo loan portfolio that is locked in limbo as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and private equity firms jockey for terms on nearly $4 billion of the failed lender's assets. The loans, including 10 in Atlanta totaling more than $600 million, will be sold for perhaps 20 cents on the dollar (0 comments)

Federal Reserve Beige Book: August Brings Stabilization to Southeast - 09/15/09 07:08 AM
The Southeastern economy showed signs of stabilization in August, according to the latest Federal Rerserve Beige Book report, released September 9. Reports from real estate contacts indicated that the pace of decline in home sales continued to moderate in most areas compared with the same time a year earlier.

More Home Sellers in Atlanta Cutting Prices - 09/11/09 10:57 AM
CNBC announced today that more than one in four U.S. homes for sale on September 1st had their prices cut at least once since landing on the market.
