SAFE, affordable apartments within easy reach of Buckhead?

Asked by kmckernie, Atlanta, GA Tue Jul 30, 2013

I've just accepted a job in Buckhead (near Roswell and Piedmont Rd), and I'm looking for an apartment with a radius of 30 minutes or so. Are there any areas around here that are safe for a woman living alone? My budget is under $900. I don't care what city it's in as long as it's safe and I can afford it. :)

Real Estate Agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a Real Estate Agent. Visiting the area and making your own determinations about what is best for you is the way to go.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a Real Estate Agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.
