I've recently applied for a position located in Ellenwood, GA, and am wondering what areas I should consider for relocation. I've been looking at Ellenwood and Morrow, but am open to other suggestions and would love feedback on those two. I've looked at some past threads on the topic, but they were all at least 3 years old.

1. Budget - My salary would be in the $45k-$65k range.

2. House/Condo/Townhome? - Flexible. I'm also open to renting or buying, although renting is my preference right now.

3. Employment Status(commute/work from home) - I would be commuting to Ellenwood, and am open to driving my car or taking public transportation. I would prefer to keep my commute to 30 minutes or less.

4. Children(public school vs. private) - N/A

5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference or a mix of the two - No strong preference. It would be nice to live somewhere that has shops, farmers markets, etc. in walking/bicycling distance.

6. Easy access to public transit, important or not? - Somewhat.

7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood. - Safety, culture, activities, nearby parks/recreation, parking.

Thanks for your help!

If you are moving to Ellenwood, you need to make certain it is Ellenwood, Henry County and not Ellenwood, Clayton County. Clayton County (where Morrow is) isn't the nicest place to live. Due to the loss of school accreditation a few years back, property values have plummeted, so if you do move to Clayton, you may find yourself stuck with a house/condo that you can't sell, because it won't be worth what you've paid, and/or folks won't buy because they don't want to move into a house in a poor school district.
