Searching Homes For Sale In Buckhead
When searching real estate in Buckhead, it’s important to remember that Buckhead is not an actual city. Well, there is a small town in eastern Georgia (Morgan County) called Buckhead, but that’s probably not what you’re looking for… So don’t enter Buckhead as the city when performing your search! All the properties in Buckhead have an Atlanta address; which is how they’ll be listed in the MLS.
The best way to find houses for sale in Buckhead is to search by zip code, by school district, or by map. If searching by zip code, 30305 and 30326 will give you properties located in the heart of Buckhead. In addition, the 30309, 30319, 30324, 30327 and 30342 zip codes extend into what is considered the Buckhead area. Therefore, they too may be worth including in your search, depending on which side of Buckhead you’re looking to live.
New Homes For Sale
If you're looking for new construction in Buckhead, there typically isn't a lot to choose from. Most of Buckhead has already been developed, so vacant lots tend to be scarce. There always seems to be a new condo development going up, but single family homes are another story. However, some luxury builders are buying up older properties to demolish and redevelop.
Therefore, you’ll find new homes scattered throughout the area with no definite concentration in any one location. Because land is so expensive in this area, the houses that do go up, tend to be large and well appointed. The price point for new homes in Buckhead generally starts in the 800s and goes well into the multi-million dollar range.

No matter which building you choose, you won’t be far from all of the top shopping, dining and entertainment options Buckhead has to offer!
Benefits & Amenities Of Buckhead Condos
One of the biggest benefits of condo living, besides the amazing location, is the amenities you can access as a homeowner and member of the association. Although they vary from one complex to the next, some of the more popular amenities include: gated/valet parking, concierge service, workout facility, pool, business centers, WIFI, security, pet areas, storage units and more.
Keep in mind, these amenities aren’t free; the cost is shared by all homeowners and is typically charged as a monthly fee (in addition to your mortgage payment).
Buying Or Selling A Condo?
When buying a condo, it’s important to review and understand the declaration & bylaws. They are unique for each complex, and every unit is subject to their rules. In addition, it’s also a good idea to review the association’s finances and past meeting minutes, if your agent can get a hold of them.
As a seller, pricing your unit properly is the key to a successful sale. You should consider any upgrades your unit has, what floor it’s on, the view, and comparable properties in the area, especially those for sale or recently sold within the same complex. In addition, it’s important to verify your building’s eligibility for financing. In the past, some developments were not eligible for certain loan types, such as FHA and other low down payment mortgages.

Real Estate Taxes & Property Records
Property taxes are a big part of home ownership, and they play a major role in the funding of essential county/city services, such as schools, police, fire, parks and more. Buckhead properties are located in the city of Atlanta (Fulton County), therefore, subject to city and county taxes.
To determine the taxes due, each property is assessed by the county’s Board of Tax Assessors to establish a fair market value. The tax rate, or millage rate, is determined by the Board of Commissioners and other Governing Authorities within the county and city of Atlanta. The market value, tax exemption (ex: homestead) and the millage rate, are used by the Tax Commissioner to calculate the property taxes for each parcel, then the annual bill is sent out.
When it comes time to buy or sell real estate, there’s no doubt you’ll find yourself needing to look up property records, historical tax data and more. Fortunately, Buckhead property records are available free to the public through Fulton County’s online portals.
