Your Atlanta Realtor’s Mortgage Series – Introduction

    Shopping around for a home loan or mortgage will help you to get the best financing deal.  A mortgage – whether it’s for a home purchase, a refinancing, or a home equity loan – is a product.  Just like purchasing a car, the price and terms of a mortgage may be negotiable and you’ll want to compare all the costs involved. Shopping, comparing, and negotiating may save you thousands of dollars.

    In order to best assist you in navigating the Atlanta real estate market and the home buying process, we’ll be presenting a seven-part series on this blog over the coming weeks, featuring recommendations and advice for obtaining the best mortgage possible for your new home purchase.

    One of Atlanta’s most iconic high-rises is going full modern.  The Hurt Building’s $4-million renovation will include an interior revamp in addition to bike sharing and Starbucks.  In the arena of Atlanta real estate, the word “iconic” is probably tossed around too often, but in the case of downtown’s Hurt Building, the description is right on the money.  Now, a $4-million interior overhaul by the Downtown Atlanta building’s new owners is adding an amenity floor to the penthouse and revitalizing the lobby’s original marble details while introducing a modern touch, as officials put it.  The strikingly modern redesign by Atlanta-based architects Plexus Research + Design will join a new Starbucks and Relay bike-share station as fresh Millennial bait at the 1913 landmark.  The 18-story, V-shaped building, bounded by Edgewood Avenue, Piedmont Center Avenue, and Hurt Plaza, was bought by New York-based Gamma for $34 million last year, adding to a groundswell of investment near Woodruff Park.  The LEED Platinum tower has been listed on the National Park Service’s registry of historic places since 1977.  Gamma’s goal in purchasing the Hurt Building was to tap in to the exciting revitalization happening in Downton Atlanta, spurred by large mixed-use projects nearby including the Centennial Park expansion, redevelopment of Underground Atlanta, an entertainment district near Philips Arena, and Georgia State University’s growing campus.  Gamma reps say renovations should finish by the first quarter of 2018.
