Re: I can no longer afford to live in my town. Relocate? To where? Any doom goin down in Georgia?
Again, Peachtree City is nice. See the video I posted earlier. In PTC, we drive electric golf carts - we don't need a car if you can find a job in town. It is a little more expensive housing-wise than Newnan (just west of here) and both have good shopping and not as much traffic as when you get into Atlanta. It's also only 1/2 hour from the airport, so PTC has a lot of pilots, flight attendants, and other air personnel living in it.

You have to watch the rural areas in Georgia - think Honey Boo Boo. Man, you get around those small towns by Valdosta, Macon, LaGrange and it's like they speak a foreign language.

Athens is a nice enough town -- BUT it is a college town (UGA). Can you live with 35,000 college students?

Pine Mountain is nice - and pretty. It's more rural again but a little more upscale because of Callaway Gardens and all the vacation stuff.

I, personally, would stay away from the northern suburbs of Atlanta unless you don't mind constant traffic. It's horrible. It's a little more happening as far as restaurants and bars than our section of the city. We are more family-oriented.

Atlanta, itself, does have culture (concerts, museums, orchestra) and sports - no problem there. My son (who attends GA Tech) and his girlfriend rent in the Highlands area of Atlanta and that is a really nice place with close-by stores and restaurants you can walk to. I think his rent is about $700 per month or so.

The mountains are nice. You have to be selective, though. Helen (in the mountains) is way too crowded in the fall due to Octoberfest - you don't want to live there but it's a nice and really fun place to visit.

Elijay/Jasper area is OK - big enough for shopping but still small. It is also still close to Atlanta. There are some large but nice neighborhoods which aren't too expensive and gaited w/lakes and such.

The Ga Power Lakes area (Burton, Seed, Rathbun) is very pretty but way expensive. Those lakes are probably the prettiest lakes you will ever see, though. But you probably won't find many rentals there and homes are $1 million on up to purchase.

Blue Ridge/Morganton is a nice area. You have the lake to putz around on and rivers to fly fish, places to hike. The homes aren't too badly priced up there. I personally like Blue Ridge. You can find a nice little place with a view for a couple hundred grand.

Hiawassee is also a very nice place and Lake Chatuge is beautiful. This is one of the prettiest towns in the state. I also like Hiawassee.

I don't really know much about Blairsville (Lake Notteley) but I have some friends w/ a cabin there and they like it. These northern lakes tend to fluctuate in depth a lot due to water usage. The GA Power lakes don't but then they have all those mega millionaires up there making sure they get everything they want.

Savannah/Brunswick is always one of my favorite areas to visit - Tybee Island, Hilton Head, Jekyll Island - there are some very nice places but there are also some really dumpy areas so you have to be selective about where you live.

I hear good things about Thomasville and Columbus but I personally don't care for them much. Many of the native Georgians really like the areas, though. It's all personal preference, I guess. A lot of people hunt down in those areas.

Doesn't matter where you live as a renter. It's not a renter market. If you can afford, buy a home. It will cut your monthly payment in half.

Op,

Try looking into states based upon unemployment statistics if you are looking to move however sorry you might have to embrace the cold climate and in this economy adapting to harsher climates seems to be the key to making it.

Easy for me to say I suppose as if you are not used to the cold it can be oppressive much as some of us consider hot humid climates hard to endure.

Thank you for your kind words you understand that one must travel to go where the jobs are, many do not wish to make that sacrifice primarily because they do not know how to prepare.

With a little preparation, cold climates are not so bad one has to remember have back up heat sources and if your primary source is electric the have a wood burning stove, pellet heater or propane heaters depending upon your location.

Have a ready bag in the trunk of your car in case you get stuck with everything from first aid supplies to warm clothing, wool blankets boots etc, bright headlamp and of course a shovel and clay kitty litter (wheel traction), insulated bottles of water, and MRE’s (meals ready to eat). If never needed is great but having these items in your vehicle will give you peace of mind.

I hate the density of the Atlanta metro and that includes the cities you mentioned. I would NOT move there.

If you really want to live on the cheap buy an RV or motorhome (prices are way down)

For goodness sake don't move to the Atlanta metro. It is pretty and all that but you will soon wish you hadn't gone there.

If you are hell bent on Georgia then go outside of the metro area.

Metro Atlanta now includes anyway with an hour to an hour and a half drive from downtown in any direction.

Salt,
I'm from Georgia.

Athens is absolutely a fantastic city. I lived there for 12 years. It is close to Atlanta and close to the GA mountains. Snow skiing is 3 hours north. It has low crime, higher educated people, rich culture, a great downtown, high vibration; and of course, the University of Georgia. Go DAWGS!

Secondly, I would choose Savannah. Savannah has the neatest town squares, water fountains, rich history, a lot of personality, River Street, and Tiby Island.

Thirdly, I would choose St Simons Island. Very small, very quaint; and not well known. You would not believe the huge live oaks covered in spanish moss.

As for housing prices, in South GA you can own a plantation for the price of a New York or California house.

Georgia does get hot in the summer. You will have to have access to a pool or the ocean. However, tomorrow will be 70 degrees.

PM me if i can help in anyway or you have more questions.

I just moved from Boulder to Middle Georgia and it is beautiful but I traded a high end city for a low end city, I have more for less, the deal is the crime. I may be moving again due to the crime. I have my first security system for a reason. So look at the poverty levels and crime. I have been to Athens and it's a fun city with good restaurants.

Come in, the water is nice... I live in a growing town about 20 minutes outside of Savannah. Cost of living is reasonable, even better if you go 10-15 minutes further to Rincon, Effingham. For the most part, we haven't felt the brunt of the economic meltdown, and we expect growth in our area.

People are nice, friendly and very, very, very conservative/republican, although we do have 3 colleges in the area - SCAD being the most liberal, by default (artsy-fartsy).

It is beautiful, and you will find something affordable to do every week-end.
Don't worry about the flying fishes!
