From resale value, to property taxes, you can bet that your local schools will be influential on your Georgia home. So, in an effort to find the right home, it's time to sharpen your pencils and search out some statistics regarding your Atlanta home. Do you know how to determine if your new home is the best choice?
A little research (which includes working with a real estate agent that knows the metro Atlanta area can go a long way in home buying. Knowing the neighborhood and local community means being aware of similar property values, market trends, crime statistics, and the local schools. If you want to do your own research on any area, in addition to asking us, here are some resources for you to consider.
General City Info - City Data (Also check out individual town websites.)
Local Businesses - Yelp
Crime Stats - Neighborhood Scout
Predators & Sex Offenders - Federal Resource
School Statistics - Great Schools
In any neighborhood, consider the school district and the individual school located near your new home. Watch for general trends rather than yearly scores. The money a school district or individual school spends per child, teacher turn-over rate, and parent satisfaction rate will give you the information you need, along with traditional API scores.
