Hi, my family may be relocating to Memphis from a suburb of Detroit. We currently live in a very nice, safe, and convenient area. I am wondering about Memphis and if anyone could provide useful information about relocating, good schools etc.. We have 2 children ages 9 and 7 and of course are looking for the best schools and areas in which to live. A lot of the comments about Memphis I have read seem to be negative, it is concerning me to say the least.. Please let me know. thanks..

I do not have children, so I can't really give any advice on the school situation. Some of the public schools are "optional schools" that offer advanced and college prep courses. There are also several private schools to choose from.

Housing in Memphis is *very* affordable. There are many neighborhoods in east Memphis that are very safe, very affordable, and conveniently located in the center of the city. One example is the Sea Isle Park neighborhood in East Memphis. It is located in the south-east corner of the 240 loop. There is a variety of home sizes and prices. You can easily find homes in the price range of $100K to $150K.

Best of Luck!
