I have lived and worked in the Lithonia area for 20 years. Both the 30038 and 30058 zip codes have what I call, "high crime" pockets. However, this is true for most major cites. I suggest selecting an agent that knows the area before purchasing. Depending on your purchase reasons and criteria, you can be very please or very disappointed. Prices can range from $7,000 for an attached unit to $650,000 for a sprawling mansion on acreage.
