Regular readers may’ve noticed we’ve sent more of these Intown Haps emails this year than in the past.  Well, the reason is that we’ll often get a home all lined up to feature, and before the email goes out on Friday it’s already under contract!  Buyers are snatching up good homes as soon as they hit the market, so if you’ve been considering selling your home give me a call.  I’ll be glad to give you a realistic idea of what your home’s worth in today’s market–most people are pleasantly surprised!

About Grant Park…

The Neighborhood’s namesake, Grant Park, is a 131 acre green space that includes a playground, walking trails, and beautiful landscaping.  For History buffs, the nearby Cyclorama is a rotating museum showcasing the world’s largest oil-based painting, depicting the battle of Atlanta.  Also in Grant Park is Zoo Atlanta, one of the oldest zoos in the country.  Other nearby activities include Oakland Cemetery, which is the resting place of some of the city’s most famous residents, Hushpuppy Gallery, and Grant Park Pool.
