Ranked #10 in Money Magazineâ€™s 2007 Best Places to Live rankings, more than 16,000 Suwanee residents contribute to Gwinnett Countyâ€™s dramatic year over year growth. Just 30 miles north of Atlanta via I-85, Lawrenceville Highway, or Buford Highway, Suwaneeâ€™s growth, like many of Atlantaâ€™s communities, has surged in the last decade.
Residents rave about the strong sense of community they feel in Suwanee and take pride in their city and its natural landscapes. Suwanee boasts numerous parks and green spaces, with ongoing plans and development for more through its award-winning open space program. A diverse variety of arts and entertainment are held in the parks each year, drawing residents together frequently. Covering more than 10-acres, family-friendly Town Center Park is known as Suwaneeâ€™s front yard. It is the cityâ€™s most popular park and anchors Suwaneeâ€™s thriving town center. Suwanee Creek Park, George Pierce Park, Main Street Park, and the Suwanee Greenway encompass more than 400 beautiful acres.
But even with the accolades and the growth, Suwanee is still a small town at heart. Last century, Old Town was the nucleus of the city. The train from Atlanta stopped in Old Town, so many businesses and homes were built there. Today, Suwanee is revitalizing and preserving Old Town while creating a new modern downtown. The cityâ€™s comprehensive 2020 plans calls for managed growth while preserving its small-town feel, giving Suwanee a real â€œour townâ€ appeal.
I don't think I have seen a bad view in Georgia since I moved here. Even in the drought the trees have a splendor not seen in any state of our union.
Affordable housing is a concept only you can answer. What is your budget? What is your priority? You will not find a county in Georgia where there is a shortage of beautiful, affordable property - whatever the budget.
Can you narrow your desired locale to North/South/East/West - City/County?
As most on this panel will tell you - I am partial to Forsyth County. Why? Because I have the beauty of country, with the city in my backyard... in fact this is my whole marketing schpiel..
Our schools are top notch (more so than my research indicated), the traffic is manueverable - and getting better daily with roads being widened and the completion of the Ronald Reagan Pkwy...
I could go on and on - but I really want to answer your question. Help us do that with a few extra parameters!
I work, live & play in the Northeast Atlanta metro area. Gwinnett County and a number of the cities within may be very accomodating for what you are looking for. Hall & Forsyth counties may also be worth considering. FYI, Suwanee, GA was recently named #10 of Money magazines Top 100 places to live.
Please let me know how we can be of service to your real estate needs in the Atlanta metro area.
Too answer your question: Atlanta, Georgia is one of the top five cities where homes have actually appreciated, home prices are very resonable.there are jobs being created and the weather is fantastic.
No fear! I'm not going anywhere! If you need any assistance looking for homes in North Atlanta look me up. I'm an experienced agent and my wife is a Real Estate Attorney. I'll make sure you are taken care of all the way to closing.
Thanks and good luck!
I also live in Gwinnett County. Gwinnett has some of the best schools in Georgia (just like Cobb and other areas it has bad schools too). In addition, Gwinnett has a ton of parks and things to do, no matter which city you select in Gwinnett, there is always a great park nearby. Parks have walking trails, playgrounds, in some cases water parks. Older established areas will have more mature trees while new homes will offer the floor plans people are wanting but less trees.
Right now resales and new construction are very affordable.
Assuming you need to be near Atlanta there are some other areas of interest. If affordability and beauty are your only criteria, you might look at Villa Rica, Dallas or Douglasville on the West Side. Covington on the east side is also EXTREMELY affordable. Lot's of choices.
