Hi every one. At first I had decided to buy home in Duluth reason being, it is multicultural I was going to move in to the good neighborhood with less crime. But I did not find homes that I felt in love with.

I have found few in Alpharetta. The question is: Does Alpharetta have some neighborhood that I need to watch out for, meaning bad neighborhood, or is all the neighborhood great and I don’t need to worry as long as the address says Alpharetta. And my second question is. Is it multicultural will I fill welcome.

Thank you all in advance

Most Alpharetta zipcode are ok. keep in mind Alpharetta zipcode contains city of Alpharetta, city of Milton and city of Johns Creek. Also, there is a portion of Forsyth that contains Alpharetta zipcode. Schools rated best are in Johns Creek (Northview high and Chattohoochee high).

No way you can called Alpharetta multiculture since it is mostly white professional and large minority Asian population. There is very limited African Americans and Hispanics population there. Still, I think you should be ok as long as you have money. It is very much "Yuppie" (in particular Johns Creek) mindset in this area.

There is no part of Alpharetta that you need to "watch out for". However, the one residential area I feel is not that nice is the Highway 9/Main Street area. It is near a mostly deserted strip mall (used to be Ingles), mechanics, auto stores, etc. This is reflected in the home prices though- I think it's the only neighborhood where they have new construction 4 BR homes in the low 300's.

I disagree about Hwy 9/Main Street. I live in a residential area off of Hwy 9 Main Street.I love this area. We are just starting to see the building influx that is east of 400. There still are trees here. I'm 10-15 minutes to GA 400, much less traffic than other areas of Alpharetta, 10 min to North Point Mall, 5 minutes to a Kroger, Walmart, Publix, Wills Park and Windward restaurants. I like traveling through Downtown Alpharetta and mostly like this area because it feels like a little town with the 2 lane road. I like that the subdivisions here have 60-80 homes not 100's. It also has diverse residents in terms of culture, race, nationality, families, singles, couples. Something will take over the Ingles. The home prices are lower than in lots of Alpharetta 2-300's. I am not sure where there are new homes are being built in the 300's. There are 2 townhome developments one in the high 200's and one in the low 300's.

Getting in and out of Alpharetta can be a chore, you may want to time your work commute before committing, Hally. Just a thought...
