What Should You Consider First When Moving to Atlanta?



Today we’re here to talk about a few things you should consider when moving to Atlanta or the Metro Atlanta area.

1. Are you an OTP person “Outside the Perimeter” or an ITP “Inside the Perimeter” person? Here in Atlanta, this stands for Inside or Outside the I-285 Highway Perimeter or some may call it “The Loop”. This refers to where you want to live in the city.

Inside the perimeter includes Downtown Atlanta and lots of nightlife, shopping, parks, the Beltline. It’s a bustling area.  Outside the perimeter involves more suburbs and family-oriented places. It’s more spread out. They are two completely different types of lifestyles. Which do you envision for yourself? Things to do in Atlanta are seemingly unlimited whether you live inside the perimeter or outside but vary greatly!

2. Schools. Do you have children now or will you have them, and what kind of education do you want for them? There are some great public and private schools all around the Atlanta area so check out SchoolDigger.com {https://www.schooldigger.com/go/GA/search.aspx} to start the research.

3. Atlanta Traffic. It’s really something else. If you have a commute of more than 2 or 3 miles, then you’re probably going to want to live somewhat close to where you work. However, we have a great public transport system, MARTA. It’s a great option for going anywhere in downtown and even Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.  MARTA even offers free parking!

We are local experts and cannot wait to help you find the best place to live! If you have any questions or want to talk about how we can help you find the perfect location in Atlanta, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you TODAY!
