East Atlanta named third hottest neighborhood in the country

East Atlanta is the No. 3 hottest neighborhood in the country, according to Redfin Corp.'s Hottest Neighborhoods report that ranked neighborhoods in 27 cities.

The Seattle-based real estate brokerage said East Atlanta is exploding with interest from millennials and empty nesters because of the trendy restaurants, bars and boutiques that can be found around East Atlanta Village.


"Buyers are realizing they can have everything at their fingertips by living near the city and are scrambling to buy homes here before prices rise," Redfin agent Will Fassinger said in a statement. "Likewise, many tech sector workers who have relocated from the coasts are looking for an affordable area that offers the fun and excitement of a big city."
