As with all great small towns and cities, Duluth is unique and special. The community of Duluth has done a fantastic job of merging the rich history of Duluth with the new. There are two sayings in Duluth, “Pride in Old and New” and “Old Town Pride.” The residents of Duluth have done a great job integrating sidewalks and bike-ways that enable guests and homeowners the ability to enjoy the festivals, concerts, the downtown restaurants, local parks, and wide range of shopping options. As a Duluth Property Manager, I can whole heartily say that the downtown attractions increase the property values and rental rates.
As we all know, growth plays a major role in appreciation and rental rates. With the acknowledgement of major magazines, Duluth is experiencing a rapid growth. Businessweek Magazine ranked Duluth the “Best Affordable Suburb in Georgia” and NewsMax named Duluth a “Top Ten City of Best American Values”. The disadvantage of growth is traffic delays. Fortunately, many of those projects have been completed. With close access to major highways and interstates, the commute to Atlanta or neighboring cities can be done without taking a snack or packing a lunch.
Did you know Duluth has their own police force? (http://www.duluthga.net/departments/police_departments/index.php)? By having their own police department, the citizens of Duluth have enjoyed the benefits of it being a safe place to live, work, and visit.
This city is the place where families and businesses get everything to truly capture the spirit of great living! Duluth has sidewalks and bike ways that connect to all areas of the city. It has celebrations, great dining, and shopping venues, making Duluth an active and booming community.
