It is April 10, 2012. I need someone that lives in Annewakee Trails to honestly tell me how the subdivision is doing now in regards to crime, etc. The New High School is built and their is security in the neighborhood. Is it a good place to live or what??

Yes I reside there now. My home is built fine. There is a difference between the Trails side and the Falls Side in terms of size of house, yard etc. I have also heard that most of the things that have happened there are on the Trails side. The things I have heard about happening as far as crime is concerned are the same things that happen everywhere, teens breaking into empty houses, fights etc but I have not heard anything in a while. I have seen a big change in the Pool area in the past few years. It is much better. Anyway, I like living there. I live on a cul-de-sac and have woods behind me. It is peaceful and quiet.

Here is some advice. This is true for ANY place one might be thinking of moving to.
1. Go on a Saturday night.
2. Go when people might be arriving home from work.(5-6-7 o'clock)
3. Go when the school buses are bringing children home from school.
Weekend visits are VERY important. Good luck.

Thanks to Zoeyboo and Synergy. I appreciate your comments. I do have a contract on a home and it is my dream home. I think that the subdivision is not perfect but perfect does not exist on earth. So, I appreciate your honesty and opinions. If I have any other questions I will post them and ask you. Have a great evening.

I do have another question just about the area in general. Are there nice places close to the trails to eat or socialize?

There have been a lot of home break in's in there. I know this from having a family member who lives in Riverstone. They are ready to move, but know that they won't get anything for their home. Windows busted out of their house and one of their cars was broke into. This is a couple who live alone, and keep to themselves.
My best advice would be to see if the DCSO can give you a print out of calls made from that area, and what the calls were about. I know there's a web site that might give you some info. Crimereports.com

There are a lot of section 8 rentals in that huge development as well.

I would tell u to go for your dream. There is good and bad everywhere. I have a friend that lives there and has been there for nine years and would not ever move. Her family loves it. I have a contract there and am so excited. Ive met three of my soon to b neighbors very nice people. So dont give up on ur dream: the houses are priced so u will make a great investment when this economy turns around.

I have a contract in place for a property on Annewakee Trails and I'm very concerned about the negativity I keep hearing about the place. Should I pull out? I also have young children.

I have nothing but good things to say about this neighborhood. It's quiet. Our home is very well built. It's got great amenities. What my wife and I love is it's easy access to anywhere in Atlanta we want to go. We've been here four years, and we love it. Now, if you don't like diversity, or you live on the Trails side of the neighborhood then things may be different. On the down side, the neighborhood is huge. Over 1000 houses. Anytime you get that many people in one place there are going to be a couple of bad apples. Good luck avoiding that in life. On the whole, though, the people are nice, the houses are nice, and it's a great place own a home. Honestly, some of you on here who bad mouth the place must not live here, or just have some sort of irrational hatred of this side of Douglas county.

Douglas tops state in 'distressed' home sales
by Ron Daniel / Staff Writer Douglas County Sentinel

If the housing market is getting better, as many experts have speculated, it doesn’t seem to be showing in Douglas County.

The average sales price in Douglas County of distressed properties that were either bank-owned or in some stage of foreclosure dropped 17.19 percent from $97,789 in 2011 to $80,978 in 2012, according to data released Wednesday by RealtyTrac.

Overall, there were 1,798 sales of distressed properties in Douglas County in 2012. Distressed sales accounted for 52.10 percent of all homes sold in the county last year, making Douglas No. 1 in the state in that category.

That news comes just two weeks after Douglas County jumped to No. 1 in the state in foreclosure filings when the county saw a 44.63 percent increase from December to January.

“This decline in average sales price is obviously a result of the significant number of foreclosures that we continue to experience,” said Chris Collier, executive officer of the Westside Home Builders Association.

The numbers released Wednesday paint a picture of a housing market in Douglas County that has continued to decline over the last three years.

In 2010, there were 1,198 sales of distressed properties in Douglas, which accounted for 46.40 percent of all sales. The average sales price price of distressed homes in 2010 was $106,655.

In 2011, Douglas County had 1,532 distressed property sales, which accounted for 43.97 percent of all sales.

Collier said while the trend hasn’t been good in Douglas, he hopes this is the beginning of the end. Much of Collier’s optimism comes from the relatively low supply of houses available in Douglas, which he said should be driving prices up.

“If people are planning on buying they need to get in there and buy because this shows me that prices have declined for us at a significantly greater rate than any of of our neighboring counties.”

Carroll County had a smaller percentage of distressed homes sold last year, dropping 3.43 percent from 1,312 sales in 2011 to 1,267 in 2012. Carroll’s average sales price of distressed homes also increased from $74,759 in 2011 to $76,185 last year.

Haralson County had 189 sales of distressed properties in 2012, up 0.53 percent from 2011. The average sales price of distressed homes fell 1.05 percent from $62,433 in 2011 to $61,779 last year in Haralson.

Paulding County, however, is in much the same boat as Douglas. Paulding had 1,320 distressed sales accounting for 50.57 percent of all sales in 2012, putting them at fourth in the state in that category.

The average sales price of a distressed home fell 19.01 percent in Paulding from $102,721 in 2011 to $83,193 last year.

The numbers statewide aren’t much better. Georgia had 63,370 foreclosure-related sales in 2012, an 11.55 percent increase from 2011. The average sales price for distressed properties in Georgia was $102,298 in 2012, reflecting a 13.12 percent decline from the previous year.

Georgia was fourth behind Nevada, Michigan and Florida in 2012 in the percentage of sales that were either non-foreclosure short sales or foreclosure-related sales.
