I have lived in Marietta for 16 years and love it. There are many wonderful neighborhoods, but you will want to consider other aspects of living here. I suggest you find a Realtor you feel comfortable with and with their help you will determine the best area that fits your financial requirments and your social requirements. Marietta is a community that has been experiencing growth and rebirth, so working with someone who knows the area and the projected changes will help you in your decisions. Also, the agent can help you find a good loan officer to help you decide if VA, FHA or Conventional is the right choice for you. Good luck and Welcome!
I will leave the question about decent Marietta neighborhoods to a qualified REALTOR in that area.
I think the best thing to do to begin with is talk to a lender. Once you have the money questions answered a Realtor could much better help you pick the neighborhood based on how much you could borrow. There are wonderful neighborhoods in Marietta in all price ranges. Marietta is a big area and I could better answer your question once we know where to begin. If you want to contact me I will be glad to share the names and numbers of several lenders that could help you get started.
