I have lived in Shelby County my entire life...52 years. I moved my family to Collierville in 1998 to enjoy the small town atmosphere and great public schools. While Collierville was our best choice, Germantown, Bartlett, Arlinton and Lakeland all have strengths as well.
I sell for a living and would glad to have a chat with you about all the wonderful choices ahead of you.

I don' t think age of the development has much influence. Especially between the two you mention, the bigger issue would be schools that serve these communities. In addition the newer one, Oakmont is bordered buy a gravel, and asphalt plant. The other items might be Alamadale's community club house and pool. So, in my opinion, age has some bearing but in the two mention, not much.
