I grew up in the suburbs of south GEORGIA,Philly and Atlanta.Ive been in the Air Force and have lived all over the U.S. and Europe.If you look at the crime stats for Buckhead, you will see that most of the crimes that occur are of the public nuisance variety.It is the high profile crimes that people perceive to be rampant.Compare those zip codes to those in say parts of Gwinnett you will find that its higher in places where people THINK they are safest.I don't LOVE Buckhead at all but i Think we should be fair about perceptions versus reality.Ive worked in the heart of Buckhead for the last 5years.I have a car but choose MARTA.MARTA by far is one of the safest public transportation systems in the nation.That is a fact not just opinion.The worst you have to deal with is some loud obnoxious kids without proper home trainig.You're right about the NFL players though.LOL

Default Peachtree city

There is no comparision to Peachtree City and McDonough..... Peachtree City is by far the better city. They are like night and day.. But I live in Sharpsburg on the border of Peachtree city.. We looked in Peachtree City 3 years ago when we moved here but found the traffic unbelievable... Our area off Fisher Rd. is great. One of the top schools in the area.. We have a new house that we are putting on the market very soon and relocating to NC due to my husbands job.. I will definately miss the area..

Fayette county. Very nice place. One co-worker of mine lives there. He loves that place. High schools there (McIntosh, Starrs Mills) are among the best in Georgia. A lot of Delta pilots live there. Highly recommended if you can afford to live there.

We liked Peachtree City but are not looking at houses that are priced at more than 300K or so. You don't get much in PC for that.

So we looked in Fayetteville and like it fine! Any real drawbacks or negatives about Fayetteville?

Thanks!

The only downside is that most of jobs in Atlanta located either at downtown or northern part of city (Midtown, Dunwoody or Marietta). The traffic could be tough.

We work from the home office and that's something we like a lot about some of the houses we looked at. We don't have things like "bonus rooms" or "finished basements" in Fla. Factoring the cost per square ft ( including the finished daylight basement) in Georgia and comparing it to where we are in Fla we come up with at least an additional $125,000.00 ( minimum ) to get the same here in SW Fla. Minimum and of course that doesn't factor an acre or more land with trees on it

Just got off the phone with the realtor and we are extremely close to making an offer.

I live in Newnan! I find it a great town that's progressing very quickly yet still holding onto its small town image. Newnan has several beautiful historic districts as well a beautiful town square. It also has all the shopping and restaurants you'll ever need, with more on the way. There is a beautiful new lifestyle center being built right now that will have all the top stores. There are plenty of churches and the schools are pretty good. The people are nice for the most part as well. Some cons- The town is kind of segregated between the whites and the blacks, some areas are a bit run down, and there is a strong religious pull ( good or bad)

Senoia (pronounced Senoi by locals) is a nice small town with good access to Peachtree City. That's all I can really say.
