Is one of your goals this year to ditch renting and finally become a home owner? Owning a home is the path to wealth, but of course location plays a big part in that equation. You always hear about Location, location, location, but having an Atlanta address isn’t the only way to get the most ROI. Majority of millennials (whether buying or renting) want to live inside the perimeter because of recent developments such as the Atlanta Beltline and Ponce City Market where home values continue to skyrocket. However, home values are still growing outside the perimeter as well, particularly in Johns Creek, GA. Many families are seeking a more suburban lifestyle and are considering factors such as median income, school system ratings, poverty, crime statistics, and amenities.
For those planning to settle down in the suburbs, Johns Creek shouldn’t be ignored as it was ranked #4 on the list of Best Cities to Live in America last year. The median home value in 2016 was $373,700. It boasts some of the best schools in the state, low poverty rates, affluent residents, and access to great food and shopping. This city has one of the most well rounded communities in the state (and the country) all while maintaining a healthy real estate market. We are confident that this area will continue to thrive in the coming years. Our team is making an effort to become an integral part of this city and getting to know and understand what keeps its heart beating.
A couple of noteworthy neighborhoods in Johns Creek are The Falls of Autry Mill, with over 450 homes and the Country Club of the South which has over 700 beautiful homes and unlimited amenities. Johns Creek’s Newtown Park is also making a big impact by hosting the farmers market, baseball games, a concert summer series (held in their new amphitheater), and being home to a great dog park. A new city hall building has also recently gone up, and the culture and entertainment in Johns Creek is endless.
