From the continuing influx of new businesses to the attraction of the Buford City School system, this page will give you more than a 6 reasons to make Buford your next home.
The Mall of Georgia has proven to be a great attraction for potential homeowners and potential residents. The ever expanding mall has been a proven economic force to increased rental rates and home prices. The easy access and proximity to I-985 and I-85, has kept the Mall of Georgia from becoming a vacant lot during the downturn. We have homes that rent for more than $100 more just for being 5 minutes closer to the mall. Higher end subdivisions are still popping up around the mall and continue to hold values for existing homeowners.
A well-known attraction to our city is the Buford City School system. The school system ranks near the top in the state of Georgia. Smaller class sizes and a more hands on approach from teachers and Administration makes Buford City Schools a contender for any family with kids from K-12. While the scores and class sizes are a major attraction, let’s not fail to mention the sports program. Every sport that Buford supports is a major force in the state. Being the owners of State Titles in Football, Baseball, and Basketball and nationally ranked, the lessor know sports are an extremely competitive in the county and state. For any family with active kids in sports, Buford has earned their place at the top. (See their amazing list of accomplishments: http://bufordwolves.teamsitesnow.com/43417/buford-high-school/athletic-department/news-information:6/custompages/1744.) What does this mean to the real estate market? Homes sell for higher and rent for more when they are located inside the city limits of Buford. Want to rent a home in Buford? Be ready to sign the lease the day it comes on the market. More than likely, it will be off the market the next day.
Looking for fun and relaxation? Look no further than Lake Lanier. With 59 square miles of water and 692 miles of shoreline, this makes the lake a major destination for sailing enthusiast, fishing, boating, and recreation. With attractions like Lake Lanier Islands and golfing, the lake continues to drive home values and rental rates.
Like to hike or rappel? The mountains in North GA are a cup of coffee away. While the attractions are too many to mention, Buford continues to benefit from the close proximity.
While being close to major highways and interstates are not always considered to be attractions, they are a necessary component to home values. The rental rates and home values continue to remain constant. As a property Management Company in Buford, having a steady, fairly predictable range enables us to manage rental properties more effectively. While I’m not fan of road work, traffic, and delays, without proper planning and growth home values and rental rates will drop. Buford seems to be doing a good job of planning for the future.
The Buford GA Community Center is a state-of-the-art facility with the versatility to host any manner of events—from intimate weddings and seminars to large corporate meetings and live arts performances. With four distinct venues that include more than 5,700 square feet of banquet and meeting space, a 274 seat stage theater and an outdoor amphitheatre that can seat up to 1,800, the Buford Community Center provides a distinctly-southern setting to bring people together. http://www.bufordcommunitycenter.com

While the Mall of Georgia may be the major destination for shopping, local Buford residents are very aware of the local, small business owners who make up the community. Buford is a thriving hub for entrepreneurs. From small diners to consignment shops, boutiques, and to anything you can imagine these small business destinations make shopping in Buford an experience instead of a chore. Many of the rental homes we manage and sell are from local business owners who have outgrown their living space. As a property manager in Buford, knowing the market and reaching out to growing entrepreneurs who want to expand has proven to be a winning strategy.
While the real estate market continues to rebound and some say even thrive, there are plenty of opportunities for investors and homeowners. In downtown Buford, the opportunities for major rehabs are still there. I have personally renovated over 50 homes in Buford and continue to look for opportunities. Are you looking for a home in a subdivision? No problem. There are still homes on the market that need updating that can increase equity after the purchase. As a Buford property manager, knowing rental rates and history of subdivisions has helped buyers and owners make long-term plans on real estate.
If you are considering renting or selling your home, give 4th Avenue Property Management an opportunity to earn your business. We have been marketing, managing, and selling homes in Buford for more than 14 years. We can get it done faster with less money and and stress.
