Many SCAD students and parents are choosing to buy a condo rather than renting while attending the Savannah College of Art and Design. Deciding to buy can prove to be a wise investment, particularly in this "buyers market". Since the SCAD campus is scattered throughout the Historic and Victorian Districts students can often walk to class.
The Historic and Victorian Districts in Savannah, Georgia have seen a huge growth in condo conversions in recent years. Many large Victorian homes and townhomes have been converted into beautiful condos, keeping the original architectural details yet adding the modern kitchen and bathroom upgrades we've come to expect these days.
The Forsyth Condominiums overlooking the 20 plus acre Forsyth Park offers a variety of condos from under $130,000 for a beautiful one bedroom. If you're looking for something larger and perfect for having roommates you can currently get a 3 bedroom / 2 bath updated Victorian Condo for $225,000. If "Green" is your thing you can get a 1050 sq. ft. eco-friendly loft built to LEED standards for $265,000.
Here's a list of 140 condos in the Historic and Victorian areas from the low 100s to 300k. I would love to show you the wide variety of SCAD housing opportunities in Savannah. Please let me know if I can be of assistance!
