Young professional

3180 Mathieson Drive / Unit No. 705
This two-bedroom condo at Mathieson Exchange Lofts suits buyers who covet lock-and-go lifestyles and the convenience of a concierge. The asking price includes Turkish marble countertops and access to the lap pool, fitness center, and rooftop terrace. “Everything is updated,” says real estate agent Kevin Grieco. “So there wouldn’t be much for this busy professional to do.”
Asking price: $369,900, two-bedroom

Young family

3620 Kingsboro Road
This traditional three-bedroom is located in the highly rated Sarah Rawson Smith Elementary School district. The home dates to 1930. Families would enjoy the fenced backyard and roomy deck, and they wouldn’t have to sacrifice location for space—Phipps Plaza, Lenox Square, Publix, and Target are all within walking distance.
Asking price: $625,000, three-bedroom

Established family

2852 Dover Road
For the buyer with kids and a sizable budget, this six-bedroom cinder block and stucco home has nearly 5,400 square feet. “Typically, I see [established families] spending between $1.4 to just under $2 million,” says Greico. “They require good schools, lots of entertaining spaces, a media room, large kitchen, and privacy.” Check, check, check . . .
Asking price: $1.85 million, six-bedroom
