Homes For Sale in Sandy Springs GA With A Basement

Looking for a Sandy Springs home for sale with a basement? The city of Sandy Springs is a markedly affluent community with so many choices in homes for sale.  From midcentury modern to the more traditional. Many homes offer a finished or unfinished basement, but it isn’t always an option. Currently there are 187 homes in Sandy Springs on the market with a finished basement. It HOTlanta basements can not only provide extra living space, but a cool place to hang out.
If you do have a basement there are a couple of things to investigate before purchasing.  I would definitely recommend a radon test when you inspect the home.  Radon is a naturally occurring odorless radioactive gas that is has been known to be present in homes – more often in homes with basements.  Radon can access your home more easily through the poreous walls of the basement or a sump pump (also common in homes with basements). 
Certain areas of Georgia are more prone to have radon present .  Here is a link to see what areas have more instances of high levels of radon. http://www.city-data.com/radon-zones/Georgia/Georgia.html
 The good news is if radon is found, it is fairly inexpensive to treat.
Another item to look at is does the home have a sump pump. A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a water-collecting sump basin, commonly found in the basements of homes. … Sump pumps are used where basement flooding happens regularly and to solve dampness where the water table is above the foundation of a home. It is important to make sure a home has a sump pump and it is working properly.  
Now that you have some information about basements to think about, let’s find the right home for you!  Read more below about Smyrna and all of the features it offers it’s citizens….including “cool” places to hang out! 😎

Given these statistics one might find it surprising that there are still a lot of great real estate values to be had. There are a lot midcentury moderns hoping not to meet the wrecking ball and many other types of unique architecture, such as Victorian reproductions, and of course your standard traditional brick mansions. You might spend $350,000 for a split-level ranch or $10 million for a sprawling chateau. Houses are usually surrounded by lush foliage making it one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Atlanta, while also providing ample privacy, cleaner air and shade.

It is a very family-oriented community with children attending prestigious private schools like Brandon Hall and Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School as well as top-rated public schools like Heards Ferry Elementary and Riverwood High. Sandy Springs is also close to many of the city’s Jewish synagogues and Hebrew schools such as the Katherine and Jacob Greenfield Hebrew Academy, the Weber School and the Greenfield Jewish Academy.
A lot of families settle here specifically for the competitive schools, outdoor activities and sports. However, there are also a lot of singletons around town, many employed by IBM, Cisco Systems and United Parcel Service, which are all headquartered there. Sandy Springs is also home to three major Atlanta hospitals: Northside Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, comprising 40% of the beds in the city.
Lastly, as it is near the Chattahoochee River and other vast green spaces, residents enjoy the city’s many parks and recreation centers. Morgan Falls is a favorite.
