You do get more home for the money in Villa Rica compared to North Atanta. Depending on what you're looking for, that can be a good thing. If schools are of any interest to you, I would recommend checking out http://www.doe.k12.ga.us/ReportingFW.aspx?PageReq=211&PI .
Typically the homes in North ATL are higher because of the education system in place in that area. People spend more money on their homes there (especially East Cobb) b/c their children can get a Private School education at a Public School price (free...plus taxes). East Cobb's taxes are very affodable and there are homes that you can find there at all price points.
Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
