Congratulations on your move to Atlanta, Georgia. I know the importance of a family having to start over to a new city. Taking care of families is very important to me when it comes to servicing their real estate needs. I have been a Realtor for 15 years and would love the opportunity to assist in your home search. I do know the Fayetteville and Fairburn areas very well. Both are great cities to live in and to raise kids. I am available at anytime to speak with you once you are prepared to start your home search. I look forward in hearing from you soon.

Hank Miller is spot on - the schools in Fayetteville and even more so Peachtree City, are so much better than Fairburn there is no discussion. And the home value retention trends are better as well - though not nearly on par with the best areas of Cobb and North Fulton.
Not sure how much you know about metro Atlanta or why you picked the Southside - Atlanta's Northside offers so much more on every level. I know, I have lived here since 1965 to watch Atlanta evolve into a world class city. I have over 25 years experience in the real estate and homebuilding industry, and know Atlanta Neighborhoods, schools and builders, and have lived in both area's. Still if there is a driving reason to be in South Atlanta, Fayette County really is the place - the only place.
I also think your job prospects in the medical field would be far better on the Northside as well. Coke is a great company and I have helped a few Coke families relocate to Atlanta.
Don't hesitate to contact me for more pointed information and advice. If you decide you want to move to Cobb, North Fulton, DeKalb, or Gwinnett, I would be happy to help you find the ideal home and ensure you make a sound investment.
Unfortunately, I don't go below I-20 because I perform a significant amount of additional services and due diligence on behalf of my buyer clients and can not afford to drive 75 miles round trip to evaluate the structure and major plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems of all the homes you like - or monitor new construction for clients who are building - unless you are in the $600K or above price point.

Anything to do with schools is a Pandora's Box of opinions so I'll defer to the data. If schools are important, I would look at areas of Cobb and North Fulton where a history of success and value retention is present. Atlanta home values are driven by schools, demographics and access...
Here's an article - with data, not opinions, that provide just a snapshot - http://hankmillerteam.com/2013/09/30/schools-key-to-value-ap
I'm an appraiser as well as agent, i'm on the data first and foremost. There will many other areas offered and they may be worth reviewing - my only point is that a wise buyer defers to history and data.
Let me know if I can help -
