It's best to start your own thread with your answers to the suggested questions from myself and other members. I didn't actually mean for people to post here, but it's not locked so it's no big deal, just want you guys to get more views and thus responses and that usually happens when you start your own thread with the answered questions.

But missxsunshyne, since you did post here I'll try to answer your question. I must say I know much much more about neighborhoods and homes within neighborhoods that I do about apartments or possibly renting. For instance I could say this areas is great, i.e. safe (relatively speaking of course) good schools, shopping options etc. but the complex itself may not be the best i.e. bad management, loud neighbors etc. The best thing to do is contact promove.com and check out equityapartments.com they could help with your search and then after you've found some places check apartmentratings.com (keep in mind most people that are happy don't take the time to post positive reviews, so take the reviews with a grain of salt) Hope this helps.

Default Decatur Move

Terrin- I would agree with the decision on Decatur especially if you are working at the CDC. There are many other areas as well to consider that are close by with good lower level schools like Virginia Highland, Lake Claire, Midtown plus the city of Decatur schools you mentioned. A site we used for decatur home was Decatur GA Homes for Sale. Good luck on the move there are some very knowledgeable posters on this board about the area so post some new threads if you need to.

Default Poss. Moving to Atlanta

Trying to make a decision and would appreciate input fast…

1. Budget/Depends
2. House
3. Coca Cola
4. Public School
5. Suburban
6. Open to public transportation
7. Open “Low Crime”

Looking for neighborhoods that would be a good commute to Coca Cola for work.
Would like to sell our house where we are at now and purchase a new one… but don’t want to buy in the wrong neighborhood. Can you help? We are trying to make the decision on if we should accept the job offer or not. What’s the average 3-4 bedroom house go for in the neighborhoods..? I am out online searching the MLS Real Estate listings and I have NO idea what places to search for since Atlanta is so big.

Good Afternoon...I am so glad that you have a site set up to assist people with the transition process. I am planning to move to the Atlanta area in about 4 months, and I was wondering if you could suggest the best possible place for me to reside. I hope the information I'm giving will be sufficient for your assistance...thank you and God Bless!

1. Budget-$250k
2. House/Condo/Townhome?-House or Townhome
3. Employment Status(commute/work from home)-Writer
4. Children(public school vs. private)-no children
5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference or a mix of the two-Suburban mix
6. Easy access to public transit, important or not?- not important
7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood.- 30 something and single
8. Buying or Renting- Buying

Smile Family with young children moving to atlanta

Our budget is about 1000dls. per month in rent. We would like a single family house with a yard in a wooded lot. My husband will be working in the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and would like to live really close from his work or to commute no more than 30 minutes, preferably using public transportation. We want something safe with parks, dont mind schools since we will be renting and our children are under 4.

I have been looking at Riverdale? Or south Decatur? I have heard that Riverdale is not safe and that south from Intersate 20 is not good option, is that true, or they just wrote that because they are not fancy executive style homes? Just dont want something crowd, unsafe, noisy, or dirty.

Thank you.
