I am looking to move to either NE or NW of Atlanta soon.

Church, Private Schools, and Activities are important to me.



Woodstock, Canton or Acworth


Suwanee, Sugar Hill or Cumming

Out There [Outlier] but might consider...

Peachtree City, Newnan or something else [Lake or Something]

Lets stay on topic though. I do care about resale value, so the Public Schools are kind of important to me as well. For example moving to Suwanee I am sure the resale is going to be great because of the Public Schools.

I want to live somewhere for (30) years. I have a job that is statewide so exact location is not a factor. I would love to give my children something that I never got. I would love for them to grow up in the same location and create friends for life.

We are not interested in keeping up with the John's AKA [Jone's]. Like living in John's Creek. I am sure the people there are great. I am not complaining, however, we just don't want to be subjected to extremely expensive living and feel like we need to keep up.

We are approved for up to 1,000,000.00 but do not want to live in this bracket at all. We would much rather live around 250,000 to 350,000.

We are heavily looking into a neighborhood like:

Barnesmill in Canton GA

However we are leaning towards Woodstock GA because of the hometown feel. My only concern is the Private Schools and Public Schools seem to be much weaker than NE Schools.

I am really just starting and have plenty of time to pick out the perfect house. We are in no rush and currently live south of Atlanta.

Please be kind and please do not take anything the wrong way. We are just trying to be honest and find something nice and quaint and perfect for a growing family for (30) years.

So please let me know what you think and any ideas that you may have.


Yes. Please comment on Traffic as well, however it will not really apply to me because I am a Road Warrior and drive 24/7 everywhere and leave at all different times of the day. However I do see 575 seems to have something opening up very soon to solve the horrendous traffic.

Have a wonderful day!

After looking at many, I mean many different homes I have decided on the NE side of town. There is just way more jobs on this side and the quality of life we are looking for seems to fit best here.

We are looking particularly in Alpharetta & South Cumming areas. If any of you have some great neighborhood suggestions I am all ears. However, I am prepared to lose my wallet on this deal.

The market has slowed a lot though since I started this thread, maybe I will have some luck making a good deal...

Thank you everyone for your help.

Looks like we have landed on "Legacy Park" in Kennesaw GA. For around 400K-500K. The amenities and value is incredible.

Please speak now and let me know if there is a better option than that in this surrounding areas.

Is there New Construction with NOT zero lot lines?

Is there a better value somewhere else?

Is there a better neighborhood?

If not we will probably land on "Legacy Park" and call it a day.

P.S. However, I am still considering "Windward" for the job options...
