i am currently a tennessean but was born and raised in AL. specifically i lived in southside AL for the first 10 or so years of my life. I use to live on the coosa river and loved it. miss it a bunch. i have recently been looking at transfering to a job back in the gadsden or birmingham area.
my question is concerning the coosa river through the southside, rainbow city, gadsden, birmingham area... when i lived there before, population was pretty sparse and property prices were pretty low (respectively). that was 20 years ago and i was wondering if the area has blown up or is it still pretty reasonable?
