inflated self-assessment - 7/6/2015
Don't know if it is the proximity to Atlanta that keeps prices high or the rural/frugal thinking that keeps housing opportunities at a minimum, but after living here for a year I STILL cannot find a decent place to rent. Most apartment complexes have poor to horrific online reviews or their annual rent well exceeds a home mortgage. My landlord's deferred maintenance has resulted in the subflooring deteriorating and he charged me for replacing filthy well worn NAVY BLUE carpeting so I could move in. Because there was no other available options and I was running out of time I rented this place without knowing that the bathroom doesn't have heat/ac or that the oven is missing crucial parts for its use. Substandard living conditions for $750 a month and this is one of the good houses to rent. Many houses vacant, but not for rent or sale. Gainesville - gateway to the mountains, but nothing here.  Read More

Fast growing but low profile - 8/9/2007
Gainesville (and more accurately Hall County) is the 7th fastest growing county (2000-2003)in the country but nobody knows about it outside Georgia. http://www.census.gov/prod/2005pubs/p25-1134.pdf. I've only been here 2 months but since no one cares to write about the place except for one other poster, I will. Ok, it's not a big city but the other faster growing smaller towns had more posts, Bend, OR (21 posts) or St. George, UT (14). People are generally friendly and there's a lot of diversity especially with the influx of Mexicans who work for the poultry plants- it's the Poultry Capital of the World! Be prepared for UGA football fans, guys talking about fishing on Lake Lenoir and tackling noontime traffic congestion. Downsides- U-turns seem to be legal nearly everywhere which still freaks me out. They do U-turns on the interstate as well. Neighbors feel safe talking about you within earshot but won't approach you. Upsides- Locals happy with development and increasing Read More

Growth Potential - 3/1/2006
