I am looking to move back south my family is located in Alabama.
The cost of living in Boston is out of control. I know people say don't move until you have a job. But I can't get people to call me back located as I am located in the Boston area for a position in GA. The areas that interest me: Norcross, Decatur, College Park and Riverdale. The reason I picked those areas was based on the price of a one bedroom apartment in my price range not to exceed $580. Looking for advice on the relocation and the areas. I haved saved up three months of living expenses to make the move. Hoping that I could find a job in the three month time frame. I know my first job will not be my dream job but at least enough to cover my living expenses. Advice please on locations, job search and moving to a new area as a young, outgoing prof. lady in my early 30's, no kidds...Do you think I will enjoy the relocation. Please help... BTW I do have a impressive resume and degrees.

I wish I had more specific advice on how to relocate to Atlanta but basing your search on the cost of apts is limited.

'Norcross'--this area is transitional and probably not a good choice for a single woman with the exception of the Peachtree Corners/west Norcross area. You could try searching for apts on Holcomb Bridge Rd or Peachtree Industrial or Spalding Drive and possibly find something. Stay away from Jimmy Carter Blvd, Beaver Ruin Rd. And apts that are close to Doraville/Buford Hwy/North Peachtree Rd.--which will probably seem to be in your price range.

'Decatur'--Again, I would be cautious. Decatur zipcodes are assigned to a large area surrounding the City of Decatur and some of the neighborhoods are not safe/stable.

Riverdale and College Park are south of Atlanta and if the apartments you have chosen are in Clayton County I would be very skeptical about moving there.
