Elva, there seems to be a lot of cute homes for sale in the Atlanta area. I'm currently living in Virginia outside of Washingrown DC. I can't imagine having the ability to purchase a home from $18,000 to $40,000. That's truly a bargain!

Good morning Elva, I stopped by to thank you for commenting on my blog and to see what's going on in the Atlanta area. I miss the area. I lived there for 12 years. Do me a favor and go to Provino's or Scalini's and have some garlic rolls for me. They are to almost die for, with the garlic dripping off them, even running down your chin as you take a bite.  Yum.  Enjoy your day.

Elva, very nice presentation of homes in the Forest Park/Atlanta area.  A median price of $103,000 is very reasonable and so is the square footage of 1,000 to 3,000 square feet.
