Just saw on Cold Well Banker Atlanta's website that there are homes in that neighborhood going for as low as $36K! Some homes that went for close to $200K in 2003 are on the market for $80-$100K. Makes me sick to my stomach! What happend? The thug crap a$$holes are taking down the whole county. Puke!

UMM...Just in case you didn't noticed, the housing market crashed along with the economy. There's houses in Florida that are selling for a third of what they were worth 5 years ago, and they are in good neighborhoods. You should try watching the news or reading the paper every once in a while!

Bunch of greedy politicians got with a bunch of their greedy banker buddies and just bent the county over, took all they could get knowing the whole thing would bust someday. Now we got banks generating false documents to utilize during foreclosures and still no body goes to jail.

Its really sad to see so many negative comments about this subdivision. I am sure you all are saying that sitting on your couch or in your computer chair.. Wonder just what have you gotten out to do for the community or to mentor some of the thug crap you speak of. As the saying goes "If you do nothing to help the problem, you are PART of the problem"..

The problem is the people complaining about this neighborhood don't even live here, therefore they don't know crap! It's not as bad as people think it is.

you try to feed a dog that is rabid or vicious, you get bit. that is why i do not do anything for the neighborhood. i am the wrong color and attitudes do exist in the neighborhood. if you do not believe that, i have some warm beachfront property in alaska for sale. sometimes the people involved do not want to help themselves. live in squalor and vermin. the crime reports are frequently mentioning the problem in there. help yourselves first, then people will help you. if it does not show interest at first yourself trying to improve, why should someone else attempt it?

@ not pc anymore,
its really sade people of your mindset still exist. it even hurts me to respond to this nonsense. YES there is bad in every place in the world, you can go to the MOST Upscale areas of ATL, probably all white and there will still be problems. And I am sure I wont be the right color. As a Soldier should I say why fight for this nation when there is STILL RACISM going on, especially RIGHT HERE IN GOOD OLE DOUGLASVILLE!!!! You try and continue to help those that do want it could make a world of difference!!!
But until your HOA includes ALL persons out here not just those who are owners things wont change, there are some who are renters or leasees who want to be apart and actually care more than the property owners, so until alot of wrong minded thinking changes this place will always be the same. And from the sounds of it, you dont even live in the community, so if you dont know dont show your nasty and vindictive words. If you havent put forth effort you shouldnt even voice your concern... Wonder how is your neighborhood?

resident?? of annawakee? if you were, then yes i agree with some of your points. white or black does not matter. you are what you are, you do what you do, what is the difference if it is black or white. there is white trash and black trash. i agree. no argument there at all. parts of atlanta are trashed by both black and white. there are parts that are turning around because the people give a damn about where and how they live. i am in contruction. i see the young white and black couples making a difference. so do not sit on your high horse and call me a racist or mindset still exists. i call it the way i see it. there is no sugar coating in my world. show responsibility for your actions in the neighborhood you live in. if you can not, then you are part of the problem. i built in that neighborhood. i watched it go from something very nice at the beginning. then i noticed section 8, katrina trash and undesirables move in. i talked with neighbors that felt helpless about what was moving in. this is black people talking about black people. not white about blacks. they saw their neighborhood go from presentable and respectable to another "hood" as one put it to me. that family saw the writing on the wall and moved to the subdivision on dorsett shoals down from publix. now if it was all that great, why did they move.
the hoa is for everyone. all obey the rules set forth. some however, may decide not to. that is their choice. but the rules are the rules. obey them, or do not move in. the renters are the problem. they rent. they do not own. so you have the hoa telling the renters what to do, the homeowners are oblivious to the fact that the hoa is telling its renters to follow the rules. the renters do not care, the owners dont listen, and that there is the problem. the problem festers, no one caring to resolve it. anger grows, problelms arise, crime. boom there you go.

you commented on my comment as nasty and vindictive. exactly word for word explain to me what part of my comment was nasty and vindictive. go ahead. tell me. by definition and the exact words.

i have tried to help people in that subdivision. i have had tools stolen out of my truck while woring there. the stereo unit was taken out of my truck while working for a renter while in his driveway. so you explain to me, now, right here. i will not make excuses for the trash that resides in there, but will defend the ones that want to make a difference. i stand with you on that. but to defend the vermin in there as "the world is a racist against them" attitude...give me a break.

Anneewakee will get better when the slum lords stop taking advantage of the section 8 program. I'm all for help for the people who need it. But section 8 should not be a forever program. There should be some time limit on it. I think if after 5 years and you don't make enough to take care of you and your family then no more section 8 or welfare or any other government program for you.

i am game for an end to all government assistance after a 6 month period irregardless of the circumstances. if you are able to work and decide to not do so. well six months baby. thats all she wrote. if you are able to work then do so. i know people that are paraplegic that work. not much they can do, but they make the effort. and get paid for it. so why can't the leeches that are on governmental assistance for years and years. they become slaves to the bureaucracy.

Just to chime in here... you really cannot compare the issue in Anneewakee to the issue in Florida. In Florida, the market was drastically inflated. So, a home that should cost $200K was selling for $400K. So when the market adjusted and the crash occurred, you did see a huge drop in prices. In Anneewakee, the homes were going for $200-$300 in 2003-04 (well below the prices of the homes in the Northern Suburbs). So, in my opinion, this neighborhood has been hit hardest. Why, perhaps because of the original posters observations about Thugs.

@Resident The HOA stands for Home Owners Association... Renters and such can not by the very bature of the title be a part of it. I thank you for your service I to served. I feel that all the subdivisions in and around our area have taken a step back black or white we all see it. I must say the racial undertones on this board are really going overboard. The economy caused by politicians and bankers both republican and democrat are the heart of the issue. When you had the mortgage companies doing zero money down 125% mortgages so the buyer could furnish the brand new home that should have been a huge red freakin flag. I have seen my subdivision go down and the HOA lose its power to do anything in the 9 years I have lived here. I will end my post by saying I to tried to help as did the 1st President of my HOA he was threatened with physical violence if he tried to enforce the HOA rules and covenenats. He gave up just after I did. Apartment dwellers black or white that do not have the mindset to be owners cause the fall of the looks of the Subdivision. The value decline is due to the people we elected past and present and offcourse the greedy finacial companies.

I know a couple of people who own house in Anneekwaee. And from what I see Atreus homebuilders are crappy builders. Every Atreus SD I every been in has have low home values. It is sad for the other homebuilders. There are other SD in they same are that are majority black and are not as bad as Anneekwaee. Riverbreeze and Harrison Mill haven't experience the value drop that Anneekwaee have. Yes of course there will be some because of the market. But houses selling for under $100 is extreme

exactly my point hmmmmmmm.

i tried to help also only to be ripped off by the very people i was helping. to this day they still say they did not take the tools. and never mind about the stereo right there in front of the other family's house while in their driveway with me working on the house.

you try to help those that need help and all you get is your hand bit. my only problems that i have ever had while building is from black people. theft, bounced checks, threats when you come there to be paid after the bounced check, problems with only black folks. i have yet to have one single check bounce, or theft of my tools, or even a mere threat from anyone white, hispanic or asian.

i am saying it is racist. nor am i implying that all blacks are the problem. you have problems in every nationality. watch the news check the blotter. it does not matter what race they are, a criminal is a criminal.

the only thing i am pointing out is the fact that all my problems that i have with criminal acts have been by black people. several in annawakee, some in cobb county. i see it that way. those people are the very black problem mos people want to see and will comment on. meanwhile the rest of the black people go about their daily routine being upstanding citizens within the community.

hurray for them. i love those customers. for the rest of them. they can kiss my indian butt.
