I have lived in Boston all of my life, but I am moving to Atlanta in two months. I got a job offer there that was too good to pass up, so I am on my way to a city I have never even considered living in. I am intent on living in Midtown Atlanta and I am hoping to find a great condo there. Hopefully, I can locate one sooner rather than later.
The main thing I am concerned about is finding a great place that does not kill my budget. I know that living in the epicenter of any city means that you will have to pay more, but I am hoping Atlanta is a bit more reasonable than most. I do not want to be one of those people who live in a beautiful, luxurious place and eat tuna fish sandwiches all of the time because they cannot afford anything else.
I would love to find a place that has great amenities, like a gym in the building and/or a pool. This is always a plus since it means that you will save money on additional memberships everywhere else. This is probably not such a big deal for many people, but I work out every day and saving money on this would be great. It would also be really convenient since I would not have to go out of my way to get to the fitness center.
There are more things that I am worried about, but those are the main points. I think that if I can get past that part, I am prepared for whatever comes my way. I am going to look around to see what I can find since my move date is not too far in the future.
