Hey all. Still relatively new to Georgia. We are looking to buy in the next year here and need an affordable place with a decent yard. Trying to stay around $250,000 plus or minus. I know there are a lot of properties in Lawrenceville that are around this price, but also know there are some shady areas. Tips? How about Mountain View or Archer clusters? We want to stay in Gwinnett but are currently being priced out of the Sugar Hill/Suwannee area.

Lawrenceville Highway area heading south is a bit sketchy.

Beyond that, super safe.

US29 going south isn't always that bad. There are areas down that way close to US29 that feed into Brookwood and Parkview.

The key thing is just to watch the district boundaries for the schools.

I'd treat Central, Meadowcreek, Discovery, and Berkmar with some skepticism. These are the more populated parts of the county with the highest concentrations of apartments. But adjacent to and Southeast of US29 have some quite nice areas.

Archer, Mountain view, Brookwood, Dacula, Collins Hill, Peacthree Ridge, and Grayson all surround and contains parts of the Lawrenceville zip codes and are all good schools clusters. You will find your budget stretches thin in a few of the school zones, but amongst them all you shouldn't have any issues.

Parkview, parts of Duluth, Lanier, and Mill Creek going further away from Lawrenceville are all worth looking at depending on your commute.

we currently live and work in the Lanier cluster. Love the area. Hate the price and the distance to just about everything. We were also looking into Duluth. Work with a teacher who says the school is "rough" but parts of the area are good. My wife is Taiwanese so the access to Chinese super markets and such is appealing. Any comments on safe areas there?

Thanks all so much for the assistance!
