Unhappy Kennesaw, GA???

Hi! My husband has received a job offer in Kennesaw. We re-located to Greenville, SC about 2yrs ago from Knoxville, TN and I absolutely hate it here and am extremely worried about moving to another area that may be similar to where we currently are in SC.I am not racist, but this area is VERY diverse and being from TN, we are not used to that and the crime rate is bad here. I do not want to make the same mistake again. We are looking to rent for no more than 950.00 per month but I want to ensure that my 3 boys are going to very good schools and are in a good subdivision.My husband and I are in our upper 20's. Any info would greatly help!

Thank you so much!

Frankly, from what you say I don't think you'll have a problem with Kennesaw or its' neighbor Acworth.

Ditto on that. Kennesaw has somewhat higher home prices and more traffic, and Acworth is a bit more rural (and Spanish) but overall both areas are very good. If the husband will be working in Kennesaw that solves much of the "commute" problem that most have to experience here.

If you want to avoid diversity and stay with good schools, you can head a little north to Cherokee County. For $950, however, you're not going to be renting a house- you'll be in an apartment.

I agree with BobKovacs- you won't be able to find a nice house/townhome in Kennesaw/Acworth area for 950.00/month. You would most likely need to look at apartments or in the Cartersville area. Although, Cartersville does not have the same caliber of schools as Cobb County.

If you are avoiding diversity Kennesaw may not be for you, it is becoming increasingly diverse.
