Dixie Hills: Neighborhood History and Real Estate

Another HOT Atlanta neighborhood between Westside Park and Westside Beltline

Centrally located within Fulton County and flanked by the communities of Mozley Park, Hunter Hills, West Lake, Grove Park, and Center Hill; Dixie Hills is one of Atlanta’s 242 officially recognized (Since 1938)  North Western neighborhoods.  Real estate is always about location, location, location and this this community has a fantastic location to live, work, and play.   Read on to check out current ‘Active” Dixie Hills homes for sale. 

Firstly, it is important to know what direction a community is going and it is overseen by Atlanta’s Neighborhood Planning Unit- J (NPU-J)     The NPU-J is a volunteer forum that consults both consumers and businesses on information in regards to land use, variances and zoning, liquor licenses, and special events.  As a result of the transformation of the Bellwood Quarry into Westside Park, there is no doubt that this non-governmental arm is quite busy in regards to the growth in the area.

Secondly, Dixie Hills along with the neighborhoods mentioned above comprise the new Westside Park area of Atlanta.  Westside Park will be the largest park within the city of Atlanta.   The park will be 280 acres of green space. It will also include Atlanta’s largest water reservoir.

Lastly, Dixie Hills shares borders with other unique neighborhoods and active developments. It is bordered by Joseph E. Boone Blvd on its northernmost border.  Because Interstate I-20 creates the southernmost border the neighborhood is only a hop skip and a jump from the Westside Beltline area further south.  Additional borders are Whitaker and Anderson Ave on the East and Harvel Homes and Westhaven communities on the West. 

Dixie Hills has an active Civic Association with very reasonable membership rates as well as an active Facebook Page.

But Zillow’s Zestimate® Says My Home Is This Much?

But Zillow’s Zestimate® Says My Home Is This Much?

But Zillow’s Zestimate® Says My Atlanta Home Is This Much?

In this paragraph I will talk about something that I hear often in this business.  Zillow will tell you on their own website to get an appraiser or consult a real estate professional.      When was the last time that you trusted your local tax assessor to give you and accurate price on what your home is worth?   Chances are you aren’t very trusting of that persons assessment of your homes value even though they reside in the same county as you.   Moreover, why would people trust a company that ONLY  knows their home through satellite photos of the rooftop?

Unfortunately the average consumer isn’t aware that by their own admission; Zillow is not always correct and has a margin of error. 

At the time of publishing, the latest zestimate® accuracy data for Atlanta GA shows that 99% of the time Zillow’s Zestimates® are 20% off from the sales price of a home on the market.

20% off from a $500,000 house is $50,000!    What could your family do with that 20% difference?    What would that money mean to you?

At the time of publishing, the latest Zestimate® accuracy data for the two counties that make up the majority of the city of Atlanta, Dekalb and Fulton as well as those that touch the Atlanta I-285 bypass, Clayton and Cobb, shows an 98% average of on-market Zestimates to be 20% off from the sales price of a home.

This is still an alarming number and I wouldn’t have wanted to the the seller that missed out on that 20%.

How is a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)  from a REALTOR®  like myself much better than a Zestimate® ?

As a REALTOR® it is my job to know the in’s and out’s about your property and neighborhood/community stats.     Zillow probably isn’t going to know the five factors that influence your homes resale value.

Also as a real estate professional I will analyze the internal and external condition of your home, the uniqueness of it, note any updates you have done since purchasing the home.  Thus far, Zillow doesn’t have x-ray vision technology to see through the roof and walls of your home to see your unique furnishings.    Your home may be far different than your neighbors and yet may be similar in age.

As an Agent, I will make allowable adjustments for many things including those listed below.

  • Differences in sq ft if greater than 100 sq ft.

  • Age of the home to comparable – If over 5 years of age

  • 2 Car Garage vs. 1 car garage vs carport

  • Deck vs. No Deck

  • Patio vs. No Patio

  • Hardwoods vs. New Carpet vs. Vinyl

  • Fresh Paint vs. None

  • Basement vs. None vs. Finished Basement

  • # of Bathrooms

  • Type of View

  • Cul – de -Sac vs no cul-de-sac

  • Fireplace vs. None

  • Fenced Yard vs. None vs. Partially Fenced Yard

  • Age of HVAC

  • Age of Roof

  • New Windows

The idea of a CMA is to make adjustments to those properties that have SOLD near your home/area within the last six to nine months.  Six is preferable unless there is low inventory of homes that have sold nearby.   We only make adjustments to the comparable properties; never the subject property/yours.

This analysis gives us a range in which your home should be listed at.     There is then a bit of art and science in utilizing some of the updates or improvements that you may have done since purchasing.   Unfortunately we can’t really make an adjustment for the fact that you decided to install granite countertops in your kitchen while the neighbor chose not to.  Do the granite countertops show value?   Yes, of course, but it is an allowable adjustment?  No, not in greater Atlanta.

Working with a real estate agent allows one to often see the MLS photos of the nearby homes that had sold recently.    They will be able to study these unique differences in relation to your home to narrow down the best ‘sweet spot’ that your home should sell for within that range mentioned above.

Please trust our local First Multiple Listing Services (FMLS) and GA Multiple Listing Service (GAMLS) as well as I,  your real estate professional to provide you with accurate housing market info and trends.

History and Homes for Sale in Buckhead -Atlanta GA

History and Homes for Sale in Buckhead -Atlanta GA

A bit of history about Buckhead – Atlanta, GA

​Allegedly getting its name from one of it’s earliest founders, Henry Irby, purchased a lot of land in 1838 and created a tavern and grocery story near Paces Ferry and Peachtree Rd.  It is rumored that Mr. Irby had prominently put a bucks head on display and the locals came to know this famous “Irbyville” spot as ‘ Bucks Head’.   Henry Irby maintained his ownership till he passed in 1879.   In the 1890’s residents and visitors knew the area as “Atlanta Heights” and that name stuck with the area until the 1920’s. Much of the area after that time was sparsely populated with vacation and seasonal homes set on large plots quite a distance from the roads.

In 1952 Buckhead was annexed by the City of Atlanta and is home to some of the finest luxury homes in the Southeast as well as the GA Governors Mansion.  It has a solid reputation for some of the best shopping at Lenox Square,Phipps Plaza (both built circa 1959 and thereafter) and other well established centers.  In fact the areas around Lenox, Peachtree and Piedmont Roads boasts upwards of $3 billion dollars in consumer buying power each year.
