Albany is not very...good. surrounding, smaller towns are better. I would suggest living in Lee, Worth, Terrell, or Colquitt counties. You will have access to better schools in those counties (Albany is in Dougherty county where most public schools consistently perform below average on standardized testing and the buildings are in BAD shape). Traffic in Albany IS HORRIBLE. Slow in the fast lane, no depth perception, congestion during busy times, busted vehicles everywhere with people on their phones, and a lot of elderly drivers who (hate to say it) should not have licenses. Healthcare EVERYWHERE. A ton of places to eat, fast food and sit down restaurants. Let's be honest, 90% of fast food workers are horrible anywhere you go. Racism is bad on all fronts, but there are more than just a few good people in this area. The low income/no income areas are very prevalent (why I say don't live IN TOWN). There are NICE neighborhoods in the county and some in certain areas of town. Crime IS BAD. It's not a place to leave your car unlocked or overnight. Again, let's be honest, there are not that many places like that in the whole country when it comes to decent size towns/cities. The people talking about hospitality; it's here, you just have to go to the right places. I work for a larger company that services many businesses in Albany and surrounding areas. I meet the nicest people while at work. The economy is average. Smaller, start up businesses seem to die out quickly so don't get your hopes up if you want to start a boutique or herbs store. Weather...it is what you would expect from this region so I won't waste your time there. There were several HORRIBLE BUILDERS in this area and may still be. Violating codes, getting things past inspectors...whole other topic. Avoid bacon and vancleave homes. This region is big on agriculture, so expect tractors in town randomly. There are several large contributors to the job market in town; proctor n gamble, Miller brewery, and the marine Corp logistics base. The local news is always filled with crime and the weather forecasts are way off. A lot of access to hunting (quail plantations and land to lease all around) and great fishing all over. Albany roads are in terrible shape, but manageable. The prior statement about parks is true, they are in places you shouldn't hang out at for long or after dusk. Homeless population is not the worst I have seen. Police are usually good but I believe they are either over worked or not too worried about the crime rates. Kids entertainment is pretty good. There is a putt putt with go karts, Lazer tag, and bowling. There is a large place in the middle of town with an indoor play ground, eating area, and other cool stuff. There are many childcare places (what percentage are reputable, I don't know). Krispy Kreme and Dunkin donuts. Plethora of religious establishments. The smell in some places is not pleasant, pollution can show itself on hotter days with "the smells of town." In the end, my suggestion, live outside of town. Stay away from areas you don't like, and find areas you do like.... more

Why yes there are. I will be moving out of Albany in 2015 and have been debating on whether to rent or sell my home. I have been living in it since January 2013. I would like to get it rented possibly as soon as possible and move into something else to rent for the time being until I get out of the military in 2015 and move on. The address is 826 Putney Ave, Albany, Ga 31705. I have not spoken with a realtor yet but if interested I could speed up the process and work together on talking to a realtor who can manage the property for me and possibly put you into a "rent to own" status. I would reallt like to just sell the home but if finding a willing family who want to lease to own the house would also work for me. If still interested or anyone that may be interested, please feel free to contact me. You can review the house by typing in the address on google or any realty site. The pictures you will find of the house were from the previous owners who were selling it. I have, however, done a little but more updating to it. I have pictures upon request. It does have a pool I must add. Maybe something you are/are not interested in looking for with a property. Anything you or anyone else would like to know feel free to contact me at william . 2147 @ hotmail . com.... more
This question comes up frequently here. You can't. In my opinion Trulia is one of the best real estate web sites on the internet, but you can only have your home listed here if it is listed with a real estate agent.
