Safe Apartment Complexes in Sandy Springs/Dunwoody
~~~
<A poster said:>

Here are our assessments:
Archstone Perimeter Park: Good rent prices, nice complex. Floor plans have a lot of angles so there is not a lot of space. Little pantry space in kitchen. Bedroom would not have a lot of room to fit a king size bed.

Dunwoody Place: Lovely complex and grounds. Lots of long-time residents. Very large floor plans. Nice bonuses. Easily can fit a King Size bed in Master. Large closet space.

Hawthorne Gates: Smaller community. Nice size apartments. Angles in apartments make space tough to deal with.

Colonial Grand at Mount Vernon: Older looking apartments. Poor quality and older appliances. Turned off.

Gables Metropolitan: Huge complex >1100 units. Nice apartments, new applaiances. Little pantry/storage space. Near top of price range.

Ashford Park: Nice size apartments. New cabinetry and appliances. Lots of storage space.

Savannah at Park Place: Nice complex but starting to show its age. Full size Washer/dryers included in all apartments. Prices are good.

The Heights at Perimeter Center: New and beuatiful resort-type complex. Beautiful courtyards and pools. At high end of price range though.

All those are going to be out of the original poster's price range.

I just helped a woman looking for apartments in that price range in the Dunwoody/N Atlanta area. She needed to stay in Dunwoody because that is where her child was in high school.

Pickings are slim. And the units in your price range aren't in very nice complexes. Why Dunwoody?

At least as of a month ago, most complexes in the Dunwoody High School feeder pattern were at 90% or more occupancy. Rents are rising, not declining.

Ok. Thanks for the advice...I wanted to move to Dunwoody to be closer to Alpharetta because that is where my job is located. Thanks for the feedback.

You are not going to be able to find a nice looking, safe apartment on the northside of Atlanta with a max rent of $625. Most cheap one bedrooms start around that rate and even then you would have to sacrifice. Dunwoody is one of Atlanta's most convienent places to live, rents are some of the highest in the metro.

With that said, look up the Azalea Park Apartments on Dunwoody Place in the city of Sandy Springs(Dunwoody Place is the ghetto of Sandy Springs) on apartmentratings.com, go to their website too. They would fall into that range. The area is very crime ridden and filled with drug dealers. The apartments on that road are not quiet. High police presence. Basically it is an area where people who can't afford to pay more and cant live further out because of school, work, or having no car HAVE to live. It's not all bad I'm sure, just giving you a heads up. Dunwoody Crossing is another apartment complex on that road. They might have 2 bedrooms in the $625-650 range too.

Oh, and even though you would feel like you would be living in the hood, you would still be in an amazing location. Seconds from GA-400 which takes you down into the city and up to Alpharetta. Also there's a plethora of grocery stores, restaurants, and things of that nature in the general area.

Thank you for the heads up. I see now just by reading posts like these and on apartment ratings.com that I may need to increase my max rent a bit. Or look in another area. Thanks for all the feed back everyone.
