I have been selling homes in the Villa Rica, Carroll county area since 1996, and yes home values have dropped about 25-30% in the area during the decline. There are still many foreclosures available, and more to come, but the beauty of living in Villa Rica, you can jump on I-20 and be in Atlanta, and surrounding areas quickly. Villa Rica also is a small town, and you don't have to fight tons of traffic all the time, if I can help, please call, Brad Paris, 770-459-8841, Southern Homes and Land Realty

They are better priced becasue the bottom fell out of the market. North Atlanta has held much better than most areas because of schools, convenience and market appeal....Unless you find the deal of the centure and plan to be there for many years you are likely to lose money and have difficulty selling. You'll be buying a depreciationg asset....I appraise bunches and bunches of foreclosed homes out in the formerly "hot" areas....

Hi Countrymouse!

You do get more home for the money in Villa Rica compared to North Atanta. Depending on what you're looking for, that can be a good thing. If schools are of any interest to you, I would recommend checking out http://www.doe.k12.ga.us/ReportingFW.aspx?PageReq=211&PI… .
Typically the homes in North ATL are higher because of the education system in place in that area. People spend more money on their homes there (especially East Cobb) b/c their children can get a Private School education at a Public School price (free...plus taxes). East Cobb's taxes are very affodable and there are homes that you can find there at all price points.

Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
