My family is moving to the B'ham area in the next 6 weeks. My husband has a job in the city, about 25 mins away, per mapquest. Is this an average commute time? Can anyone provide some info on housing costs and the schools in Gardendale?

I live in Gardendale and depending on what size home you want is going to depend on the cost. There are some older homes that run from 80-100. There are alot of newer homes being built and they run from 150-450. The schools are ok. They are no where as good as they were when I went to school there. Gardnedale is VERY convienent to the city. Good luck with your move!

I've lived in Gardendale my whole life and am in the process of buying another home in Gardendale. Gardendale is a great community to live in and has become an elite community North of Birmingham. Your going to pay anywhere from $150,000 to 170,000 for homes built in 1960 - 1980, and about 170,000 + for homes built past 1980. Now, these are homes that have been completely updated and are in move-in ready quality. Under that amount are usually older homes that will need some work. For Fultondale, your looking to about a $25,000 less for the common home you purchase in Gardendale. For Morris and Kimberly, your looking at about the same price as Gardendale...prices will continue to drop the more North you go, past Kimberly. Gardendale is a family community with very low crime - and the city tries very hard to keep it that way. They are building a new high school, as well as a whole new city center. Feel free to email me if you have any more questions - [email protected]
