Your Guide to Atlanta real estate
The Atlanta commercial real estate market has been in decline 2 years. The suburbs of Atlanta which include Canton, Alpharetta, Woodstock, and John’s Creek have all felt the sting of the economic crisis. There has been a multitude of new commercial foreclosures and mortgage defaults in these cities and others. While the Metro Atlanta residential real estate market declines at a steady pace, the commercial market has been slowly following.
Many medium to large-sized companies have still been relocation to Atlanta from other US cities. They have sought Executive office space for there new corporate headquarters. Despite the national economic problems, Atlanta has been a popular pick lately for all types of businesses and industries.
Many high-tech companies have moved into research and development parks, medical laboratories and setting call centers deep into the Atlanta suburbs. These companies have created many jobs and improved the city’s economy over the last 5-10 years. This will help the overall value of Atlanta Real Estate.
Atlanta is also a prime city for distribution and sales. Serving as a gateway to the south, Atlanta is one of the largest transportation junction cities in the US. With 3 major Interstate highways(I-20, I-75, and I-85)and a multitude of railway intersecting in Atlanta, this city is a hot-bed for distribution. And don’t forget about Atlanta-Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The airport is consistently ranked as one of the top 5 busiest airports in the world.
The Metro Atlanta area is full of great places to live, work, and play. I, myself, specialize in the North Atlanta metro area and would love to share some great information. Real estate in the northern market has many different types of homes, neighborhoods, and settings. For some, a farm-themed Equestrian style community such as Carmichael Farms in Canton or The Polo Fields in John’s Creek will do. And for others, a large residential Lake Community, such as Windward in Alpharetta, is what they prefer. Below is a sample of Atlanta cities and neighborhoods, to give you an idea of what’s available. These are some of my favorite cities in all Atlanta real estate.
Homes in the Alpharetta, GA Real Estate market are usually on the high-end for homes in Metro Atlanta. The city consists of many Luxury Subdivisions, up-scale shopping, and a wonderful park system. More of an “established” community, new construction is not as abundant as it once was. Home buyers that want to be close to Alpharetta, but seek affordable new construction, now journey north a few miles to John’s Creek.
John’s Creek, GA has always had two things going for it. It has one of the most visited tourist attractions in the state of Georgia to its East(Lake Lanier), and has the pristine city of Alpharetta to its south. There are plenty of homes for sale in John’s Creek that include lake and mountain views. Over the last 5 years new construction has been John’s Creek’s strong point. Like it’s neighbor Canton, GA to the West, John’s Creek has more affordable luxury style homes also.
Welcome to horse country! Canton, Georgia is known for its beautiful farms, mountain views, and of course, great Real Estate! There is a great selection of Canton real estate for sale at this time. Although Cherokee County is trying to curb development, there are still many new homes for sale in Canton. Carmichael Farms for instance is a new Equestrian themed community, that contains homes from the 400s-700s. Built with an amenity rich “town square”, this neighborhood is a one-of-a-kind.
