Atlanta Home

By: Fruzsina Csery

Atlanta is the capital as well as Georgia's largest city. Atlanta has experienced huge growth over the last decades due mainly to its central location and lack of geographic boundaries. Population growth and rate of employment also caused the value of the real estate market to escalate continuously. Cost of Living is lower, houses cost less, property taxes are lower. Here homebuyers can find virtually any kind and price of housing they want. It has several neighborhoods, various communities live together here.

Atlanta is still a desirable Southern strategic location today. A major airport, ground transportation and cultural center, Atlanta offers tropical warmth, and a romantic history, too. It is one of the most important relocation destinations in the country, with over 4.1 million residents in the metro area.

Business 2.0 Magazine, in its November 2006 issue, identifies 10 markets that offer great opportunities for those who have the patience to buy and hold. Atlanta is rated #10 in the top 10 markets of where to buy right now with a predicted increase of 24% in five years.

The real estate prices are comparatively reasonable in Atlanta as compared to other large metropolitan areas. If you decided to buy the home of your dreams in Atlanta, just do it. You can look for a realtor, but FSBO ads are very popular, too. FSBO means 'For Sale By Owner' and it is used to describe home owners who sell their homes themselves and don't use a real estate company when they sell their homes and land. It's absolutely easy and economical. Anyone can successfully sell (or buy) without using a real estate agency. You can even choose this opportunity if you are a first time homebuyer.

Owning a home is one of the best financial investments. For decades, real estate has been the most reliable and dramatic wealth generator for many people. Housing is a universal need and with labor and building materials becoming more costly and populations on the rise, real estate prices have nowhere to go but up in certain markets over the long term. With mortgages on sale at the lowest interest rates in the past 40 years, it makes sense to invest in real estate.
