 Craftsman-style Bungalows for Sale in Atlanta Georgia - New Construction Craftsman Homes As an Atlanta real estate agent, I see hundreds of homes each year and thoughout it all, the 1920s or 1930s bungalow is still my favorite.  I will admit that an older home can require repairs, extensive maintenance and/or upgrades, so I've also grown quite fond of the new contruction Craftsman-style homes around Atlanta. After trying to search for new or newer Craftsman homes online, I've noticed that it can be a bit of a challenge, so I created a one-stop shop on my website, www.ATLhomesearch.com.  You can search for Craftsman-style homes by neighborhood, subdivision or just few ALL the homes currently available in Metro Atlanta....   >>> View ALL the new or newer Craftsman Homes for sale in Atlan...

Home Staging Atlanta - Before & After Pictures A couple of months ago, one of our Atlanta investors that we've been working with for the past 2 years called on us to see three homes he had recently purchased. Two months later, one is still under construction and is going thru some major renovations. The other we staged two weeks ago and received multiple contracts and is under contract. The third home is a home we staged today in Decatur, GA. As you'll see, the home was vacant and went thru a pretty dramatic change. Here's the before picture:   Here's the after picture:   Another angle:   After Picture:   And of course, a close-up for our Home Staging Atlanta website:
