I've been doing more research, and I found the link for the Clayton County assessor for you to get property information.


After the stories I've read on here, I wouldn't take everything on the tax assessor's site as the gospel but it's a step in the right direction.

Also, I'm really leaning towards living in College Park and I realize it's not all "the best" it could be but it'll put me close to the city without actually being in the city which is what I need.

If anyone can send me a private message regarding their experiences in College Park or from someone they know it would greatly be appreciated.

All the best.

Default It is Definately against State Law!

The Georgia Associate of Realtors says it is agains the law for real estate agents to quote square footage. Sellers can quote it all day but agents can not. They can refer to a tax record but they can't straight out say "this is the square footage". Most agents won't even touch the subject with fear of getting in big trouble with the real estate commission. Yes, it boils down to an agent quoted the wrong square footage and was sued by the buyer.

Zillow does qoute it, and if Georgia agents aren't careful on how they post their listings to Zillow, they may find themselves in trouble. I don't put in the property street number, this way Zillow doesn't draw any information from the tax records. I have also put disclaimers into the listing letting consumers know that the information was retreived by Zillow and not me, and that I don't warrant any square footage posted by the website.

Location is so much more important than square footage.

You can have the same square footage, in homes built by the same builder, at different prices. People will pay more for a safer neighborhood, better schools, and a shorter commute.
