A major factor in deciding where to invest in real estate, is figuring out where there is demand. Simple economics, right? Demand for a certain market, or area, can come in many shapes or forms. In this case, the demand for these towns come from what the town as to offer, and people wanting to be a part of that community.
In a recent post by Curbed Atlanta, the author lists “15 Small Towns Near Atlanta You Need to Visit Right Now,” and some of the towns are right here in West Georgia.
Taking the number one spot on the list is Carrollton, about which author Karon Warren writes:
“Head west on Interstate 20, and you’ll soon find yourself at this small but thriving city. Not to be outdone by Atlanta’s Beltline, Carrollton is home to the Carrollton Greenbelt, an 18-mile, closed loop paved bike and walking trail that’s ideal for exploring the area. Downtown, find a growing mix of shopping and dining and an outdoor amphitheater, along with a calendar full of entertaining events. And that’s before you include all there is to see and do at the University of West Georgia.”
Also making the list is Serenbe, located in Palmetto, GA:
““Serenbe is a utopian experiment in new Urbanism being molded out of Georgia Red Clay.” The New York Times had that to say about the progressive community, which is “connected to nature on the edge of Atlanta.” It’s made up of acres and acres of preserved forests, meadows, and well-maintained nature trails. With good food. And thoughtful architecture. Yep, sounds pretty darn utopian.”
