"Investors Paradise"

The Dixie Hills neighborhood spans across a little under a 1 square mile radius. It is located in West Atlanta, not too far from the Bankhead area. It is only about 5 miles from Downtown Atlanta, and about 8 miles away from Midtown. Nearby streets include Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. SW, Simpson Rd NW and West Lake Ave NW. There is no need to beat around the bush about this neighborhood. This area is in pretty bad shape.

If you are driving through Dixie Hills, you will notice plenty of abandoned apartments, houses and businesses. Most of these structures are boarded up with wood planks covering the windows and doors. The area is predominately home to lower income Atlanta natives. But, many of the residents have relocated elsewhere, and the area looks somewhat of a ghost town. There is not much nightlife or day activity going on here at all.

Nearby stores include random auto parts shops, package (liquor) stores, and the occasional mom and pop food mart. Anderson Park and Verbena Street Playlot are two parks located in this area. This neighborhood is MARTA (public transportation) accessible and cost of living is pretty cheap. This makes Dixie Hills attractive to occasional investors. But, quite honestly, there is a lot of work that needs to be done to get this neighborhood up to par.
  • cheap real estate
  • needs a lot of work
  • some parts are not well- kept
