Thinking about moving to the suburbs to finally get your white picket fenced-in home with all the trimmings? Since the mid-2000ss, African-American professionals and families are making a major migration from the big city to the suburban South. As major cities like Chicago, Washington D.C. and Atlanta still remain home to some of the largest population of African-Americans, the decline in African-American city dwellers, many of whom are young, wealthy black professionals, has reached 20 percent in the last decade alone, according to a 2010 U.S. Census.

Make sure you consider a few of these financial, economical and residential factors of living away from the city and on the outskirts.
