Hello all.

I am originally from Augusta, spending my first 6 years here, and then venturing up and down the East coast. I have just completed my Masters and took a job in Augusta and hoping to make the most of it. Augusta has a tremendous outlook for itself over the next 10 years and is also one of a few southern cities that is hiring.

I am pretty familiar with the city, with my parents living there now.

I am looking to buy a home in the downtown area. I would love to be in Olde Town, in the Pinched Gut historic district, but it seems that everyone I talk to says it is a bad investment, bad neighborhood, with no future, and will not be able to sell in the future. And it seems everyone is pushing me and my bride to look at the Summerville area, away from any controversial areas but also away from downtown and walkable amenities. Living downtown would allow me to walk to work too.

Does anyone have any ammunition I can use to silence my critics?

Are my critics right? Any other advice you guys can provide me with?
