Cost of Housing listed is misleading - 5/4/2016

In the cost of living review of Georgia, it shows that housing in Georgia is 75% of the national average, which sounds good to someone thinking of moving into the state, however most of the housing in areas where most prospective residents would want to live are significantly higher in cost and are at or above the national average. If you move into the Metro Atlanta area, housing averages around $250,000 or more for housing. The lower cost housing in Georgia is primary found outside the metro area or in areas with low income, and in those lower cost areas, well paying jobs are scarce. In addition, wages in Georgia tend to run 10-15% below the national average so it's even harder to survive in Georgia when compared to national averages.

Climate - 2/19/2016

The climate in Georgia is great. It is really hot in the summers. our winters do not last long. Well, here in Albany it starts getting cool-cold around Halloween. The kids usually go out with a sweater, maybe. This year winter did not start until after Christmas. Now that it is February, we have been wearing shorts and t-shirts, sweaters and jeans. Mainly at night you may need a coat. We get rain/storms according to the Gulf coast and Atlantic cycles. So, if you like it hot South Ga. is the place to be.

Living in Atlanta - 9/11/2015

I moved here to Atlanta two years ago after living in over 14 cities around the country. Atlanta is home to the most selfish people I have every met, the worst customer service, the most congested traffic, more self-righteousness and judgement than any place I have been in the word. Not to mention. The gossip, self-justification, self-righteousness, denial, projection and abdication of responsibility. The cost of living and historic architecture is fantastic but if You are looking for a truly kind (and not just on the surface) human experience then don't head this way. I can't wait to go somewhere, anywhere else.

Finding an apartment in Georgia - 1/30/2013

I have been in GA for almost a year and I still living in a house where I pay for a room and bathroom. I had lost money everywhere looking for apartments and losing the deposit after finding out big problems there, as bugs infestation. This seems to be a real problem in GA. I have a good job but does not pay enough to move into a nice apartment of more than $800. That is the base rent, then you have to add water, sewerage, garbage, electricity, etc etc. In general the only things that are less expensive here when you compare with NJ is the car insurance and health insurance if you get your own. GA is about driving long distances, and very expensive food etc.

Ready to relocated ANYWHERE else - 1/19/2013

Georgia is not the best place for raising children. Cost of living is high, employment is low, education is down, and crime is up.

Unemployment = High - 7/7/2012

I have lived in the Atlanta area for 15 years. When my family and I moved here jobs were plentiful. I have enjoyed my stay here but I must leave because my husband and I are both now unemployed. I went back to school to finish up my education (I now have my MBA) but I can not find employment. He recently lost his job so now we must move somewhere we both can find opportunity (especially me). I am willing to let him be the at home husband because he is much older than I am and have a mechanical gift so I am not worried some much for opportunities for him. I have some experience and degreed Associates, Bachelors, and MBA in Accounting also studing for the CPA exam. I know that I can be an asset to some great organization. I want to relocate to the Houston, TX area since the economy there is good.

There are better places - 2/21/2012

I would not recommend the Atlanta or Georgia area to anyone. Got called into jury duty twice during the time I lived there. It really opened my eyes to what goes on in the area. It's a strange place. Do yourself a favor believe what people have written here, don't waste your time or money.

New Beginnings - 8/2/2011

I am new to this. I am a 24yr old single mother with a 3yr old daughter. I am wanting to move to GA in the coming months, but I don't know anyone or anything about GA. If there is any advice anyone could give me, i would greatly appreciate it. I am not even sure what city i want to move to. This is all new to me. I have lived in Springfield, IL all my life, but its time for me to branch out into the world.

grass not always greener on the other ... - 7/29/2011

I lived in the Atlanta area, Chamblee, for 4 years. Before that, I lived in the NE Ohio area, as I was born and raised here. To compare the two states is a snap for me. There are homewreckers everywhere...where are they not? We sure have them in Ohio. There are gay people (non-straight) everywhere...where are they not? They live all over Ohio and the North. However, here is one of the big differences... the weather. When I lived there, the furnace did not come on until December and did not go off until March. In Ohio, the furnace comes on in the fall and goes off in the spring which means that only one season here is w/o furnace-heat. And, the cost of living is more in the South, but that's what is called the sunshine tax. Here, the sunshine is not so much and the cost of living is a lot less...which is why I have not been in a big hurry to move back. But, the social life in Atlanta is way better than up North as there is more to do and more time to do it in warmer weather. Life is a series of tradeoffs, so a person must pick which set of choices appeal to him/her the most: weather, big city life, limited transporation, obvious diversity in the population, etc. And, to those who think the grass is greener elsewhere, let me know where that is as I'm sure that I can find fault there, too.

The cost of living in GA is relatively cheap. I haven't been here long, so that is about as much information as I can offer on the situation

Housing - 1/12/2011

The housing/Rental market is awesome in Georgia. You will find much newer options with very up to date finishes in most of the larger areas of Georgia. If new construction is what you want then come to Georgia
