TUCKER GEORGIA REAL ESTATE GETS BOOST FROM EMORY UNIVERSITY AND CDC EXPANSIONSRecent expansions and job growth at Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have stimulated the housing market in Tucker, Georgia a suburban neighborhood a short commute away from the Clifton Corridor and the Emory Campus. Tucker is served by MARTA and CLIFF commuter bus systems.
Much of the housing in Tucker is priced under $250,000 and is affordable for first time home buyers. Many homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s and are perfect for home buyers who need a low price barrier for purchase.
Brick ranches and two story traditional homes are available in the $250,000 price range. These homes have great “bones” but many could use some updating in the kitchens and baths. Hardwood floors are common and large lots (100 foot width) are the norm. A significant portion of the homes have basements.
