I should have said "I never would have considered my area outside of city limits." That probably makes more sense.

Anyway, 1.5 years later and I'm still trying to get used to living here. Great city though.

There are some areas that are working to be annexed into the city. But it takes an organized effort to make it happen.

But as for the area, I live not too far away, and I love the neighborhood. I think it will see a lot of good things in the future. And is a great option for people to buy in on the ground floor.
Thanks for the map!!

It doesn't matter what YOU consider city limits....the city limits are what they are. What is meant by outside the city limits means what is not incorporated in the actual CITY OF ATLANTA, not what is considered part of the metro.
Eg: Edgewood, Ormewood Park, Woodland Hills, East Lake. Those areas are improving and people can still find affordable homes. Anything south of Confederate is not considered the eastside.

Maybe that's what you mean.

Anyway, those townhouses are really nice from what I can tell. And our neighborhood can be a little sketchy, but nothing out of the ordinary for city living (I'm originally from Chicago). It's super close to the airport and right up the street from East Atlanta Village, Edgewood, and Little Five Points. I love the area!
Well, welcome to Atlanta; I'm glad you're enjoying your neighborhood!

Is it possible to find something affordable in Woodland Hills? I'd live there in a second, I thought it had gone expensive for anything that doesn't need $100,000 or more worth of work.

It's a smaller neighborhood, but looks like there are two houses listed there on Zillow. They both are well under $200K and in decent shape.

That's not the Woodland Hills I was thinking of.

This is what I meant: Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association Boundary

That's why I was surprised to see it considered Eastside.

Ah, yeah, that Woodland Hills is (currently) just outside the city limits. And the one in SE Atlanta is just inside the city limits. Too many Woodland Hills to keep up with!

Well, so far I've realized the neighborhoods that I CAN'T consider due to the price tag. I'm realizing the trick with the East Side is, even if I find something under $170k, then there's the question of safety for a single female. Even though it's being revitalized, it's figuring out which areas aren't quite there yet. Pretty sure I'm not going south of I20 though.
