Hello everyone. my husband (30) and i (26) want to relocate from NY to GA. We have 4 small children( 7,5,2,8mths) and we are looking for a nice place to raise our children (but not too far from city life).

Maybe i am looking for too much but a nice location, good school and affordable house sounds good to me.

Any suggestions regarding:
locations????
realtors?????

All info is appreciated

Well, a few questions come to mind- most notably, what will you be doing for a job, and how much are you looking to spend? Your questions are far too open-ended to answer with the limited info you've given.

Default Moving to Georgia

We have the house for you! We have 4 bdrms., 2.5 baths and all rooms are extra large! We have to sell within the next two months because we are relocating to Michigan. My husband got laid off from his job and we are going to take a loss on the house but need to sell it asap. We need to move in June. It is priced 30k below what we would normally ask for it. It is in the country and very peaceful. We are 10 minutes from a major highway GA400. You can get to Atlanta in around 45 minutes. There are plenty of stores, a movie theatre and lots of restaurants near. We hate to move away but we have no choice. My husband got a job in Michigan and we are lucky he got a job so soon after being laid off but it sucks to have to move so far away from family and friends. Please buy our house so our daughter can go to college! If we don't sell our house she will not get to go to college because we can't afford to rent a home in Mi and pay her rent in Athens, Ga. and then pay this mortgage! And, pay her tuition. Since you are moving anyway take a look at it, it can't hurt and it would certainly mean alot to us. We are pretty desperate right now.

Strange request! You have no idea what they can afford, where they will be working or if your area has jobs for them. I feel for you, but there has to be more effective ways to get your house sold. Good luck.

Georgia Woman: HOPE Scholarship? Also, you had better check on your daughter establishing, maintaining GA residency for in state tuition. You might find in MI that getting instate tuition problematic. State schools have some goofy rules regarding residency. They are not always the same for each item you are trying to accomplish e.g. voting, driver's license etc.

Good luck on getting rid of your house.

I recommend the Mableton/Smyrna area, very convenient to everything and close to town. About a 30 minute drive and you can take the back roads. I live in Mableton and love it. Lots of affordable homes, and lots of new subdivisions. Look on the map and see where it is in relation to Atlanta. It's Atlanta's best kept secret, with a country feel. I feel very safe here.
