We are looking to find home that close to my office (15-20 minutes drive). the office located at southbound I-75 near 285 junction. My decision came down to North East Cobb area because the price still within our budget and considering good reputation for its schools. We are trying to find at least 3 beds/2 baths home with price close to $200K.
My questions are :
1. small area nearby 75 at east cobb (sandy plain) belong to marietta city. what do you think regarding marietta school vs cobb school? is it comparable? we are expecting our first child so its going to be another 5 years down the road but for long term perspective, I still want to include "school" in our purchasing criteria.
2. Any other alternative beside east cobb? I'm considering dunwoody/smyrna but never heard if their school system is good.
3. At this economy do you think renting is better than buying? I saw some houses actually being offered lower than its sale price few years ago whereas some others starting to increase their price.

I appreciate for any insight.
