Small unknown (ITP) community about 15 minutes from Atlanta and 5 minutes from the city of Decatur. Most people have never heard of it so it's growing (gentrification) under the radar. The diversity is great, young families, friendly people, and the home prices are still affordable...but not for long. Pricing is steadily increasing.
It is affordable and close to Emory university. The commute time varies on the time of day. The neighborhood I live in is clean, secluded and the people are very friendly. The prices are extremely affordable in comparison to the surrounding areas. The city itself is very diverse as is most of Atlanta, by this I mean there are very nice areas, but there are also very "not nice" areas.
For my fiancee and I, Scottdale has been the perfect place to live while working and attending school in Atlanta. Unlike many neighborhoods in Atlanta it is (at least for now) affordable for two people who do not make very much money to find a house to live in. However, it seems like even this neighborhood that is twenty minutes away from the city is experiencing a rise in rates for rent. This is scary because while in school it has been the only affordable town to live in that works for our family.
