Probably a better long-term investment.

You might needs to look further away to gain acreage for animals in your price range you might need to look even further away on the absolute exurban fringe of town (Winder Co, Southern Hall Co., Northern Forsyth Co., etc..., Also Consider Fayette Co and Coweta Co. on the Southside. The southside has much less going on, but the land will be cheaper away from the suburban neighborhoods.

From what Ive heard from a real estate agent (I myself am clueless to real estate pricing in Atl) that forsyth county is actually expensive. I prefer not to be too far from the North East Atl.

Also, both Fayette and Coweta have excellent hospitals (part of the Piedmont Health Care System), and a Cancer Treatment Centers of America hospital recently opened in Newnan. Both places also have excellent schools and generally cheaper land prices than the Northside. Mini-farms with acreage and a small pond like you're interested in are quite common there. My Aunt lives on 8 acres in south Fayette and her neighbors have chickens, cows, goats, ducks, etc. There's a surprisingly large number of NY transplants in Fayette County already. And if you get lonely or need to fly home, the ATL airport is right there.

Wow that is good to know, I havent researched those areas yet but now I will especially for the hospitals as my mom has severe arthritis plus bunch of other serious health issues, thank you.

CantWaitToLeaveNY, do yourself a favor and don't move too far from the metro. I understand you like quiet, but it's not like the City of Atlanta is all "hustle and bustle". A closer suburb in the Northern section of the metro would probably suffice, but 30-40 miles out is no longer Atlanta, it's Georgia.

Well I have to see where the suitable housing and the kind of area I need are located, maybe about a 30 min drive in outerskirts of the city of Atl doesnt seem too bad. Im flying out there this weekend for a few days to do my research, hopefully I come back with useful information.

i would seriously consider downtown decatur georgia, or possibly whittier mill village. here they are on the map:

Atlanta, GA to Clairemont Ave - Google Maps

Atlanta, GA to Parrott Ave NW - Google Maps

if you really want to raise horses, you will have to move considerably farther out, especially on the north side. there are a lot of horse farms in milton (which is a city in name only, so don't look for "downtown milton"). if you go out east towards covington there are a lot of rural areas there.

if you have time for a day trip, you might want to spend a day up in the north georgia mountains and look at dahlonega and helen, georgia. there is some cheesy touristy stuff, but the area is beautiful.

Atlanta, GA to N Main St/Unicoi Turnpike - Google Maps

however, if you live up in those areas, forget about commuting to atlanta on a daily basis.
