About Us

Our Mission

Fortas’ mission is to provide affordable homes in the City of Atlanta.  Affordable single-family housing is challenging to develop and build.  Our breadth and depth of experience continues to impact nearly every decision we make in a process of continuing improvement.

It can be difficult, at times, for the subsidized purchaser to maintain a home.  Fortas advocates the inclusion of a legal, separate-entrance rental unit.  This rental unit not only effectively doubles the amount of affordable housing, but also assists the subsidized, as well as the market-rate, primary purchasers with the costs of ownership.

Fortas' Story

Fortas Homes has acquired, renovated, developed and built single-family, detached and attached homes in the City of Atlanta for over two decades. Fortas Homes not only develops and builds, but we focus on solutions.
 
In the last ten years we have focused on partnering with Community Development Corporations to provide affordable housing. We have worked with some of the largest and smallest for-profit and non-profit companies in providing quality affordable housing. Many of these firms have been using us for many years which is the greatest testament to our ability to provide a quality home, within budget and that the market desires.
 
Our reputation as one of the premier builders of affordable single-family attached and detached housing in the Atlanta market has been growing over the past few years. We have spent a lot of time and effort analyzing the challenges to developing and building quality affordable housing. That effort has helped us define our response to the crisis. Our first response has been to advocate for greater density which if used properly can increase supply across all price points.
 
We are also at the forefront of the small home movement. The market has readily accepted this product. We anticipate our small home plans to be a perfect fit for the smaller intown lots. The Fortas product types, operational methods and processes allow for quality homes at the least possible, unsubsidized cost.
