Blue Ridge, GA (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
Blue Ridge, Georgia, located in Fannin County, just 90 minutes north of Atlanta, is the first significant mountain destination along the Georgia Mountain Parkway. U.S. Census Bureau figures show Fannin County as the 10th fastest growing market in the U.S. in terms of new housing stats as noted in Mountain Homes Southern Style, spring 2006. With a combination of long range mountain views, lakefront property and river access, there are unlimited opportunities for camping, hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking and horseback riding. A complete mountain experience lies in this county nestled within the Cohutta and Toccoa National Forest district.
"Over 40% of our land is national forest; therefore the mountains will never be over developed. Mountain preservation is a priority," notes Susan Catron, Realtor with Harry Norman Realtors in Blue Ridge. Susan has been in the Blue Ridge Georgia real estate community over 9 years. "It is amazing the change our little town has experienced in such a short period of time." As more people are purchasing, prices are raising accordingly, so much so that the area hasn't really felt the cooling of housing prices seen elsewhere in the country.
Typical home buyers include Atlanta residents seeking a weekend retreat as well as Floridians seeking an escape from heat, humidity, and hurricanes. The Blue Ridge market is in a transition period right now from your typical Georgia mountain cabin in the woods to a more amenity based retreat offering golf, tennis and clubhouse amenities. "This is a perfect time for investment," says Susan Catron of Harry Norman Realtors. "During this transition period you can still get in at a reasonable initial investment and watch it skyrocket over the next few years. Our little town has a big future!"
