I currently live in Michigan, but fed up with the price of taxes and winters up here my family and I have decided to move back down south.

We lived in Tennessee for a while, but decided to come back until our kids graduated. We are from a small town (Population less than 600) and are looking for a small town around the Auburn area. We have family in Auburn, so we would like to be somewhat close.

I have read TONS of threads on here on how much cheaper and how nice of a place Alabama is, and now I can't wait to move.

You may have to give us some more information before we can be of much help. However, here are some preliminary options:

-Waverly - A nice small town (like, 180 people small) that is very close to Auburn - just down highway 280.
-Notasulga and Loachapoka - Lots of people that work in Auburn live here if they want to have a bit more land. They are small communities (populations around 1000 and 100, respectively), but both have some history. Plus, they have really cool names.
-Lake Martin - Not necessarily a specific community, but you may find a lake home that you really like, and only be 30 minutes from Auburn.

Hope this helps.

I think Alex City and some of the other communities around Lake Martin would be great.

A little further out (80 miles), I might consider Eufala. Beautiful little town.

In Georgia, LaGrange is worth a look, too.

As you have family in Auburn why do you not visit for a week or two; tour the area; talk to people; find a place. With 431 as four-lane life line you are connected to Columbus/Phenix City and Birmingham within one to two hours max. Lots of small places and comparatively inexpensive.
We recently moved to TX from AL. Any buyers for TX:>)))
