Home Buying in Norcross>Question Details

Bob, Home Buyer in Atlanta, GA

Wife and I are looking for second home near Peachtree Corners. We've looked at a few in the $300K-$350K

Asked by Bob, Atlanta, GA Thu Jun 12, 2008

price range and were comparing two homes in different subdivisions - one is in Highcroft - the other in Bishops Glen. Our question is neighborhood wise - what can we expect between the two? Anyone familiar specifically with those subdivisions? I do realize that Bishops Glen is in the city of Norcross - not sure how much of a difference that makes and highcroft actually goes to duluth schools - any preference there? Thanks for your advice!

I am also a local Realtor in the area and you might want to take a look at school reports to see how the schools zoned for that neighborhood measure up. Whether or not you have children, the school zoning/ranking will have a huge impact for resale value. Two websites that will help you determine how the schools measure up are Great Schools.net and Georgia Public Policy Foundation Website. Both neighborhoods are good, but buyers tend to use schools as one of their most important criteria when searching for a home.

I actually live very near the Highcroft S/D and I love it here, it is a relatively small place with its own amenities and very beatifull homes, Bishops Glen is closer to the center of Norcross, more in the business area of the city, the homes are pretty and the subdivision is also relatively small, if you like the city life, Bishops Glen is better, if you want relaxed, quiet and shopping and walking, the Highcroft is more where you want to be.
