Now he loves Athens and I love Savannah, so we are far apart. We have about a year before we sell and move but could anyone tell me about lakeside community? It is near the water which I love but hopefully not a flood zone or I need special insurance to live their. My aunt lives in Wilmington and although I love it I will not be able to pay for all the additional insurance they need, flood, hurricane, and that's on top of outrageous insurance quotes. Can anyone help me settle peacefully with my husband.&nbsp;<br \><br \>2 replies Sun, 17 Aug 2014 16:26:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/has-anyone-heard-of-lakeside-community-in-Savannah/555137/ 2014-08-17T16:26:00Z What are the undesirable neighborhoods in Savannah and the surrounding areas? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-are-the-undesirable-neighborhoods-in-Savannah-and-the-surrounding-areas/545129/ Low income areas &nbsp;and high crimes areas<br \><br \>3 replies Thu, 12 Jun 2014 00:27:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-are-the-undesirable-neighborhoods-in-Savannah-and-the-surrounding-areas/545129/ 2014-06-12T00:27:00Z I'm trying to choose my "retirement city" and need a "real estate agent" http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-trying-to-choose-my-retirement-city-and-need-a-real-estate-agent/530828/ <p>I&nbsp;searched: bestplaces . net&nbsp; for median house prices under $70K and found my K-10th grade hometown Springfield OH at #11 ($58K), and my cousins hometown, Augusta, at #13 ($62K).<br/><br/>I have to decide where I want to live the rest of my life, and tentatively I've narrowed my choice to Springfield and Augusta, and their surrounding areas.</p><p>Questions:</p><p>With your help, how much would be a small house with room for me to keep up with my computer programming,web page design and creating puzzles at home.

The budget is $250,000 or less. Ideal characteristics are: one-story (or master on main), 3/4 BR, pet friendly, security, and community feel. The closer to our location the better but they can go a little farther for the right opportunity. I've been looking and can't find anything that's just right. Cross Creek is an option and we looked there but the ones available had stairs to get in or were multi-story. They can get around reasonably well now but their knees are starting to give them trouble and it would be better to avoid stairs if possible.

Watch out for the car tax! http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Thinking-about-moving-to-Georgia-from-another-state-Watch-out-for-the-car-tax/517497/ Hi. You won't hear this from a realtor in GA because they legally work for the sellers and "buyers beware!" But Georgia has implemented a new tax on cars when you register them from out of state. They will charge you 6.25% of the book value of each of your cars. That hurts! And, it was a surprise to me. So, consider yourself warned. They'll give you a warm welcome while they reach into your pocket.<br \><br \>7 replies Thu, 31 Oct 2013 21:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Thinking-about-moving-to-Georgia-from-another-state-Watch-out-for-the-car-tax/517497/ 2013-10-31T21:30:00Z Moving to a new home, advice on old home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Moving-to-a-new-home-advice-on-old-home/517810/ I have a townhouse which I'm currently upside down on &amp; I just got pre-approved to get another home for more space.
