It turns out the engineer I have been doing work for has a daughter that is a part time realtor. She says she can get me in a place in my price range in the same area I currently live. My only issue is HOAs. I hate them with a passion and most places around here have them. I want to see how the economy does before taking the plunge, but interest rates are very low right now. It seems like a good time. I have rented over half my life now and it has gotten ridiculous. I am looking at everything condos, townhome, house. If I went condo, I think I would prefer high rise just for the views alone. If any of my fellow Atlanta resident have some opinions in neighborhoods let me know. I have an app that she sent me, but looking at pics is one thing talking to people that actually live there is another thing.
