Hello Yvonne

I have already answered this question but after reading all the responses after my answer, I would like to add that zip code 30311 is a large zip code and although the crime senses shows a high crime rate, it is also the residence of four former Atlanta Mayors including Ambassador Andrew Young. There are a wide price range of homes. I think it is best that you visit the area to determine for yourself if the area will suit you.

My favorite neighborhood in that zip is Audubon Forest.

Latisha - "not the greatest?" Which real estate school did you attend?

There are so many good properties to choose from when looking particularly at mid century ranch style housing stock, but the median price is probably $35-45K in that zip right now.

Depends on what you want.

For me, in 30311, it's about quiet tree lined streets and architectural significance at rock bottom prices.

that's a rough zip for values and distressed property, spend a lot of time in there appraising foreclosure homes, popular area for fraud as well

Hello Yvonnemobley,

What are the important factors to you that will make your relocation from NY to Atlanta progressive. Once I have an idea of what your needs are we can work on a strategy to find a home that will suit your life's requirements irrespective of Zip Code. You will find that their are nice neighborhoods throughout Atlanta. If your are relocating, I suggest you 1st look into the Atlanta itself and then narrow things down to what location will best suit you.

Here's a look on whats available in 30311 up 500k http://bit.ly/Yvonnemobley1

Happy Home Hunting.

Greta, I like your answer.
Yvonne, I do a lot of seek and find for investors (I'm not a Realtor). I advice them to stay out of 30310, 30311, 30314, 30315. Some banks will not lend money in those zip codes. You may want to Google map the zip code. Google let's you zoom into the neighborhood and

I know the neighborhood pretty well. Can you please tell me what specifically you would like to know?
and what price range are you looking to buy, since this will determine the location in 30311. Some areas of 30311 are pretty good and some are not.
