you may want to go a little futher north than holcolmb bridge, or stay near sandy springs. The traffic on Ga 400 doesnt seem [i]as bad since they have widened it.

Give it six months and it will be. Especially if they go ahead with the reconstruction of 285/400.

There has been some discussion that 400 near Holcomb Bridge road is a bit older. Is it older and safe? or just dated? Some of the houses in our
price range are near this intersection.
If it's an option, I'd suggest renting for a year or 6 months in the neighborhood where you plan to settle in. Especially if you're flexible on schools. Keep in mind, though: GA public schools are notoriously average, especially in the nice areas. You may find yourself wanting to live closer to the school of your liking, rather than the neighborhood dictating the school.

If you can find a place for under $300K in Roswell, it'll likely be an older home with some needed work. Not necessarily a bad thing. The advantage to that is, you may have more school choices, an established neighborhood, and closer proximity to everything.

Advice from a native Californian: keep an open mind and ... well ... lower your expectations a little. This is Georgia and it's still got some catching up to do.
