We're just beginning to look into areas around Atlanta to move to with our family. I understand East Cobb is considered a good area and I'm wondering what school districts are considered best. We'd be looking to buy a house right around 300K - is that likely to get us in a good area? Also, what would the commute be downtown for my husband. He'd be working on Courtland Street off 85.

Thanks!

The best schools in East Cobb are in The Walton High cluster...but $300K won't go far there at all. The Lassiter cluster has excellent schools to but is becoming as expensive as the Walton area. You might still be able to find an older home in the Pope and Sprayberry districts though. Pope has better schools but Sprayberry is more affordable.

The commute downtown from th more affordable parts of East Cobb could take like 45 minutes to an hour. The close in parts of East Cobb(Walton and Wheeler's districts) are very expensive.

Sope Creek Elem., Dickerson Middle and Walton High are listed as the number one schools in Cobb County. I teach in the district and my kids attend. The average cost of a decent home in the area starts in the mid $400's. However, you can easily get into a pretty decent older home in high $2-$300's according to my husband who is a real estate agent. It's still a buyer's market out there. As far as the commute, a solid hour is about right, especially with the traffic. The good thing about it is that the area is located close to the highway. You would be probably taking I-285 from Riverside Drive. Good Luck.

Default East Cobb Schools

You will definitely find something nice in the $300-$350 range in Walton or Pope. Those same homes would have sold for $50k more last year. I'm an agent and work that part of Cobb county consistently.

There are 3 excellent high school systems. Walton is the furthest south in East Cobb, followed by Pope, and Lassiter. My advice though is when you see something good, jump on it.

Have a great week!
