Ditto on that. Georgia is a larger state - you have to have an idea of what section/region you're going for. Not all communities here are very receptive to section 8, as well.

Well I'm thinking about Region 3 which consist of douglas, fulton, clayton,dekalb,gwinnett,and henry.See my mom just moved to Stockbridge, Now my Section 8 voucher is the issue, trying to find a home with good schools and a beautiful area. Now I got info on the best schools and they are in Fulton at least that's what i pulled up. Now i will be in Georgia for a week so it gives me the opportunity to view so areas. Me personally i have to find a place that fits my life stlye, I'm a homebody that works and takes care of her kids , and not much else. so if you have any ideas please let me know thanks.

I think you should look in East Cobb, great area, safe and has the best schools in the county. You can find homes from around 175,000 and up and even less if you are okay with a fixer upper. Schools systems are the best in the nation. Sprayberry, Pope and Walton were listed in NewsWeeks best schools in 2007. Also good school Lassiter and Kell. Everything is close easy access to 75 ---575 -- and 400, just depend what you ar looking for. Loook near Sandy Plains Road area in central East Cobb and is upper middle class but affordable if you are looking for a home that is a little older , not new. I lived here most of my life and would not live anywhere else in Atlanta.

Are you still looking for a place to live? If so, would you consider a completely rehabbed home in the 30311 zip code, about 10 minutes (or less) from downtown via I-20?
