Tips for Finding the Perfect Neighborhood

Your neighborhood has a big impact on your lifestyle. Follow these steps to find the perfect community to call home.

■Is it close to your favorite spots? Make a list of the activities — movies, health club, church, etc. — you engage in regularly and stores you visit frequently. See how far you would have to travel from each neighborhood you’re considering to engage in your most common activities.

■Check out the school district. This is especially important if you have children, but it also can affect resale value. The Department of Education in your town can probably provide information on test scores, class size, percentage of students who attend college, and special enrichment programs. If you have school-age children, visit schools in the neighborhoods you’re considering. Also, check out

■Find out if the neighborhood is safe. Ask the police department for neighborhood crime statistics. Consider not only the number of crimes but also the type — such as burglaries or armed robberies — and the trend of increasing or decreasing crime. Also, is crime centered in only one part of the neighborhood, such as near a retail area? Visit

■Determine if the neighborhood is economically stable. Check with your local city economic development office to see if income and property values in the neighborhood are stable or rising. What is the percentage of homes to apartments? Apartments don’t necessarily diminish value, but do mean a more transient population. Do you see vacant businesses or homes that have been for sale for months?

■See if you’ll make money. Ask a local real estate agent to get information about price appreciation in the neighborhood. Although past performance is no guarantee of future results, this information may give you a sense of how good of an investment your home will be. A government planning agency also may be able to tell you about planned developments or other changes in the neighborhood — like a new school or highway — that might affect value.

■Make personal observations. Once you’ve narrowed your focus to two or three neighborhoods, go there and walk around. Are homes tidy and well maintained? Are streets quiet? How does it feel? Pick a warm day if you can and chat with people working or playing outside.

Google Fulton county GIS. They have a great interactive map. When you find your property, hit print and you will see an option to print a zoning map.

There are about 4 neighborhoods in the Metro Atlanta area by that name. If you're talking about the one south in College Park, it's a good neighborhood with some incredible deals right now. If you're interested in the $64,000 listing there, it won't last long. We better go look at it quickly. You can call me at 404 786-4168 or email at

The other Manolia Walk neighborhoods in Woodstock, Roswell and Flowery Branch are good as well, especially the one in Roswell. The one in Woodstock has older houses.

I am not familiar with The Peaks, however, I suggest you do your own research on the Atlanta Police Department's website. Here is the link:

I live there... and I love the neighborhood.

As is the case anywhere you live, be aware of your surroundings and report suspicious activity to the police (Zone headquarters is located right next to ZooAtlanta). You can sign up for crime watch reports on the Atlanta Police Department web site... then sign up for one in Dallas, GA... you may be surprised at the comparison.

As to commute times the trick is to work around the I-20 to Connector north interchange. Or just deal with it. Once you're past Freedom Parkway it opens up all the way to 400 north (most days that is). I suggest you and your husband spend the night with your friends and try the commute one or two days.

Having grown up in Atlanta's suburbs I promise you'll appreciate "life inside 285!"

For the most part, emphatically yes. This zip code covers a large area and includes some of the most desirable neighborhoods in Atlanta, but also includes a range of demographics and land uses. As with any large area, location matters. You should always consult with a Realtor who is familiar with the neighborhood you are considering. I can help, call me at 404-425-4945. ... more

Check the local precinct for safety stats, Tishayl, or city data (below in web ref) for that and other pertinent info. As far as a commute to GSU, I'd say 12-14 minutes in moderate traffic. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
