Life is a Highway :: The Scoop on ITP vs. OTP

Thursday, March 10th, 2016

I-285 - The PerimeterLife is a Highway, and in Atlanta, that highway is I-285.  I’m pretty sure the letters “ITP” and “OTP” have little to no meaning outside of Atlanta.  However, these three little letters that we say on a daily basis have some of the strongest impact on Atlanta’s real estate and you NEED to know the difference.

When I meet with buyers relocating to Atlanta, the first thing I do is whip out a map and draw a big circle that traces around I-285 – also known as The Perimeter. I then explain that there are essentially two main areas of Atlanta – they are not north, south, east or west, but rather “Inside the Perimeter” and “Outside the Perimeter.” This distinction that probably shouldn’t mean much, actually does, and in a big way.

So what’s the big deal? Well, for one, ITP and OTP aren’t just locations – they are a way of life. Generally speaking, ITP is considered the “cool, hip” area of town. Brookhaven, Buckhead, Midtown, Vinings and Decatur are all ITP, so it makes sense that the area would be seen as very urban, or as one of our buyer’s specialists likes to say, “jivey!” You will find many areas of walkability, attached housing, and an overall city feel.

OTP consists of the major Atlanta suburbs such as Kennesaw, Roswell, Cumming, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Peachtree Corners, Tucker, Smyrna, etc. Of course, the suburbs of any city are usually known for their more low-key and family centered lifestyles, and that’s no different for Atlanta. The city’s sprawling OTP area is highly sought out for its laid-back feel and great schools.

Another huge difference that one will notice when comparing ITP vs. OTP are the prices and overall value of real estate located either inside or outside of The Perimeter. Homes ITP tend to be more expensive – especially when it comes to price per square footage while homes OTP offer a better value (and usually a larger yard!). However, the payoff comes each morning and afternoon when you make your commute to work. Living OTP and commuting into the city each day via the Perimeter (or any other major interstate in Atlanta) will make you strongly consider purchasing a helicopter to get to the office.

While native Atlantans will tell you that The Perimeter will always be a major defining line for the city, the truth is that you can actually find the great features of each on either side of the road. Downtown Roswell and Smyrna Market Village certainly capture the “in-town” vibe of live-work-play areas outside The Perimeter and great ITP neighborhoods like Virginia Highlands and Brookhaven offer single-family housing in a very family-friendly atmospheres. Truly, there is something for everyone. And with Atlanta being one of the top 10 relocation destinations in the country, ITP or OTP you can’t go wrong!

Inside or outside the Perimeter, let The Peters Company’s expert agents help you find the perfect place to call home. We would love to be your most trusted source for information on Atlanta real estate, and we’ll even share this important tip: Once you’re on I-285 you’ll eventually get right back where you started, so enjoy the ride!

You Don’t Work that Area, Do You?

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Atlanta MapI had a great call with an old friend yesterday. He was calling me because he and his wife wanted to sell their home and buy a new one. He started by saying, “I know you guys really concentrate on Buckhead and Brookhaven so this may not be something you’re even interested in.” I realized that perhaps something I had posted or advertised gave him this impression, and my heart sunk. We actually try to intentionally not give this impression because it’s not true. If you look at our sales this year you’ll find us all over metro Atlanta including Marietta, Decatur, Smyrna, and even Dallas! We live in Brookhaven and go to church in Buckhead so Buckhead and Brookhaven business comes naturally, but it’s worth mentioning that we are not considered “neighborhood” real estate agents. I’ve always laughed and defended that our specialty is real estate, not an area. We have made a conscious effort to not concentrate in one place. For one, we love our city, and we appreciate the benefits that all areas offer. I actually grew up in Duluth, and my family has lived in Marietta and Roswell. I love those areas and know them exceptionally well. I wouldn’t stop working outside the perimeter just because I live inside it. I can’t blame an agent for wanting to work only in one geographical area of the city. That’s awfully convenient. It’s actually the old school way of doing real estate, and it can work. From my perspective, I see clients all the time moving from one area to an absolutely opposite area within the city. This could be the downsizing empty nesters in East Cobb looking for a jivey intown condo or it could be the Midtown young professionals who just had their first child and want a taste of the swim/tennis neighborhood lifestyle. In either case, it is my job to be able to speak knowledgeably about Atlanta. If I don’t know it, I will be the first to tell you, and I will connect you with the absolute best person for that area.

One of the really great aspects of a global powerhouse real estate company like Keller Williams is that we are connected with the best and the brightest real estate agents everywhere. I’ve helped clients find agents all over the contiguous United States this year. I have access to performance numbers on all the agents I refer, and I personally talk to the agents to discover the right fit. I have a script of questions that quickly hone in on an agent’s professionalism, urgency, and ethics, and I don’t just give out any name.

So the moral of the story here is never assume that we don’t work an area. Chances are we not only work it, but we work it well. Always ask us. If it’s outside of Atlanta, we will connect you with the rockstar agent you deserve. We want to be your one stop real estate resource for metro Atlanta and beyond!

August Buyer Collage 2015

Congrats, Ben and Ansley on buying a gorgeous, new Brookhaven home! When we first sat down to make a wants/needs analysis for your next home, we knew the search wouldn’t be easy, but then an absolute gem came on the market that checked all of your boxes.  I’ll never forget the first time we saw the house. Ansley just KNEW it was “the one” – even before she walked upstairs, ha! We’re so happy that your family found such a great home and that you stayed in Brookhaven to be near all of us! Thanks for your trust in our team, and your constant good attitude despite difficult circumstances. We are so grateful to have you as clients and friends!

We loved every minute of working with our friends and repeat clients, Brennan and Amber! We successfully led them through a custom dreamhome negotiation, and now the real fun begins! Groundbreaking! It takes a special level of patience to work your way through a home design, but Amber and Brennan knew exactly what they wanted. It was our job to make it happen logistically, and we can’t wait to see the finished product! Let us be your tour guide on your next Brookhaven new construction dream home project.

Tom and Sarah started out their search in Brookhaven and ended up in a beautiful home in the popular Windward! We know you and your family are going to love all the amenities Windward offers!  You will never have to leave with a lake, pool, tennis, golf, walking trails, playground and more and not to mention your beautiful backyard and huge entertaining deck!  All you need is that bar in the basement! :)   I know this buying and selling experience was full of excitement and lots of laughs too!  You all were a true pleasure to work with and having adorable T4 with us while looking at homes was a huge plus too! Congratulations on your new home I know your family will enjoy for many years to come!

Matt did a super fast search through the Buckhead condos with a very tight deadline to meet. We found a great fit  at The Concorde with a beautiful view of the Buckhead skyline from the 22nd floor!  We know you are thrilled it is move in ready and renovated too, except for the purple bedrooms! I know you are going to love the pool, tennis, gym and short walk to the happening night life of Buckhead Atlanta! Congratulations on your first home purchase!  You were super easy to work with and I am so glad you love your new home!

What a great find in historic Roswell within walking distance to all of the awesome restaurants and shopping!  This inviting townhome is going to be a wonderful place for family to enjoy and for a future investment property.  We saw a good variety of properties and ultimately we all knew when we walked into this home it felt right. We can’t thank Patrick and Jackie enough for trusting The Peters Company with their third real estate transaction over the years! We greatly appreciate your business!
