David, look in the Belvedere Park and Meadowbrook Acres area of Decatur 30032. Its close to Downtown Decatur and Kirkwood. You're near 3 Marta stations. There is no such thing as easy access anymore inside 285, but you have 2 interstates and many side roads if you work Downtown, Midtown or Buckhead. It will be extremely difficult to impossible to find anything decent for rent in Decatur 30030 for $1,200. E,g, Our 2br/1ba in Midway Woods rents for $1350/mo.
HausZwei Homes has 2br 2ba for $1250-$1350/mo but they rent very fast in Meadowbrook Acres.
Full disclosure I'm a partner in HausZwei Homes, but I only handle our properties.

Try near Emory and VA Hospital. Druid Hills area is great because it's safe and a great commute to so many places. Great for resale too.

These are great areas with a variety of houses, condominiums and shopping. 30030 is primarily City of Decatur, which has its own school system, 30033 is mostly North of Decatur and is unincorporated DeKalb County. ... more

Amelia, look at homes in Midway Woods. It is right next to Winnona Park and just redistricted into the Druid Hills school cluster. Also several grea private schools and the new http://www.themuseumschool.org/
There are a variety of home styles and prices in the area. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to by the name of the park in the neighborhood, Dearborn Park. Lots of folks walking their dogs, good neighborhood association that has really spruced up the park and done things like added sign toppers on the street signs. Very close to Oakhurst, downtown Decatur and the Edgwood Retail District all without the city taxes of Decatur.

Mki,

Decatur, the city of Decatur, was named Atlanta's best neighborhood in the recent Creative Loafing Intown neighborhood rankings, for very good reasons.

I lived in Inman Park on Euclid, and was VP of Public Safety for Inman Park Neighborhood Association for a couple of years. I lived in Kirkwood for nearly 7 seven years. Decatur is like Mayberry RFD compared to Atlanta, so start there and start within the city limits.

The rail line is an appropriate value divider and if your consider that East-West rail corridor as the line, and if you are talking "south-east" then you are talking Winnona Park as the city of Decatur's southeastern-most neighborhood, inside 30030.

Winnona Park's values are relatively on par with the rest of Intown Decatur values. Solid as a rock.

Some parts of 30030, like Decatur Terrace are not within the city limits - I think that some of the best deals in Dekalb are right there. Good values.

I also think that you are talking Greater Decatur, outside the city limits "south-east" and if so then I believe that you may be thinking of 30032 down to Snapfinger, maybe over to Toney Valley. Correct?

And if you are talking "river" then, what? Snapfinger Creek? Sugar Creek? The Yellow River?

Clarify, and we'll discuss...one other thing. We don't talk "getto" here at Trulia Voices...google map of 30032 at web reference.

I agree that the area is fine and not likely to decline. I have sold a unit in Tuxworth in the last six months and my clients are very happy there. Also, that is one of the best managed associations around with a very active board of directors that are serious about maintaining their property values.

Thank you and let me know if I can assist you in that area.
