Hi
We are considering a move to Georgia. We have lived in Florida the last ten years and it is time to move on. I am really tired of living on a postage stamp lot on top of the neighbors! I want a few acres in a nice little town. My neighborhood is turning into a little UN and that is not what we want. Any suggestions in north Georgia. We have a child going into high school next year. I thank you for your replys.
Steve

Effingham County might be a good place for you. There's lot of land still available and the schools are very good. I know what you mean about a postage size lot. We got one of those. But we are happy with it. We had a really large yard that took forever to mow. I am sure in a few years we will want more land again. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

As a Floridian it means that every ethnic group is moving in the neighborhood. If it's in Miami they may all be piling in the same house! You never know what language they will be cursing you with!

If you are trying to get away from people that look different than you, then ATL might not be the place you want to be. It's a melting pot here with plenty of transplants from all over. A lot of the older subdivisions have houses on several acres of land, but are those people placing their houses up for sale? Probably not. There's still plenty of land available, they're chopping trees down everyday, but you WILL pay for it bigtime. Land isn't cheap down here. Don't look at new subdivisions because you'll get that little square off land. If you want a lot of land, you're going to have to buy the land first and then build - JUST MY LITTLE OPINION. But remember, if you buy land, you never know who's going to buy next to you. But if you buy a few acres you won't see you neighbor anyway and you don't run the risk of people moving closer to you. I'm on 1/2 acre and I barely see my neighbors - it's nice.

You can't ever live on too many acres! There's nothing like land to seperate neighbors! The best neighbor is the one who lives and works in Florida, owns and pays taxes on the 100 acre parcel right next to yours.
