With the economy now beginning to improve, and the unemployment rate on the decline, now may be a good time to secure a bargain.

If you are looking for a lower crime rate area, you should consider Kennesaw, Acworth, Woodstock and Dallas GA. All these areas are relatively close to Austell but enjoy significantly lower levels of crime, better schools, etc. Of course there is a direct correlation between price and crime levels, and you should expect to pay quite a bit more for a similar home in these lower crime rate areas.
