Cherokee County, GA is Atlanta Real Estate’s hidden gem!
The real estate market in Cherokee County, GA has fared much better than the national market. This large county in the North Atlanta suburbs has sustained positive growth and steady sales during this national housing slump. Two major factors have helped the Cherokee housing market. First, the home prices did not follow the national “bubble” trend of forcing prices so high that nobody could afford them. Second, the quality of schools, lower taxes, and quality of life, have made this area prime for growth, under any economic circumstances.
As we all know, the mortgage industry’s woes, extremely over-priced markets, and many other factors have contributed greatly to the national housing slump. The Atlanta Real Estate market has been effected, but not even close to such markets as South Florida, New York City, and Los Angeles. Maybe it’s because of the Atlanta housing market’s “average” terrain? Or due to the fact that is has become a transient city with large corporations bringing in workers, then shipping them off a few years later. Nobody really knows the full answer, but luckily we are in a great situation for home-buyers and even home sellers.
North Atlanta residents have easily made Cherokee County their home for the following reasons: Property taxes are on average substantially lower due to having no direct effect with the Atlanta Tax base. Unlike Fulton & Dekalb, no part of Cherokee County resides in Atlanta city limits. Citizens here enjoy much lower property tax payments than their neighbors in surrounding counties, and that in turn allows the Cherokee County home buyer more buying power. The county has also seen a huge surge in New Schools, faculty, and test scores. This has been another attractive point of buying a home here.
The Cherokee County Real Estate market is made up of five cities. Woodstock, Towne Lake, Canton, and Ball Ground. Each city has plenty of what home buyers are looking for. There are plenty of great Canton homes for sale with mountain views, or Woodstock real estate in gated communities. Towne Lake homes are situated in tight luxurious communities, and the Ball Ground is where you go to purchase acreage or a home with plenty of land.
In the central region of Cherokee County, GA, sits the country city of Canton. The beauty of Canton Real Estate is the wonderful subdivisions or neighborhoods the city has to offer. Whether you are looking for Golf, Equestrian, Townhouse, Active-Adult, or just about anything else for that matter, chances are you will find it with ease in Canton. I have just updated my Canton real estate site to highlight this great aspect of Canton.
