I am considering moving from Virginia...visited the area and liked housing that I saw in these areas. However, can anyone give me the "real deal" on these areas (schools - middle & high, crime, taxes, housing, commute to downtown, racial diversity, etc.)? Thanks!

Conyers...let me see. My parents moved from there last weekend. It is very crowded, the schools really arent great (there is a decent private school nearby named George Walton Academy, I went there) and in general rundown. The time it takes to get downtown is about 45 mins.
My parents purchased their house (which was off the beaten path in SE Conyers) for $265K in 2003. They put it on the market last spring (over 1 yr ago!)....and it sold 2 weeks ago for $280 after putting in $30K of improvements. I hope that paints you a picture. This was a well established, nice subdivision too.

As far as the other 2 cities...I dont know them personally. Sorry for the negativity, but I hope that helps some!
