Step #2 – Choosing a Location

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Some things never change and this adage still applies.

Determining what location suits your top needs and wants is usually the top priority.  

There is a map on each community page with a few key points of interest nearby.

Here is a list of things to consider:

Proximity to work & interstates

          Work doesn’t need to be made worse by a lengthy commute.  

          Check out local traffic patterns in Atlanta here.


Child care

          Are the top rated ones nearby or between your work and your new house?

          Here is the link to the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning with child care ranking


School ratings “ the high schools rule and higher rankings equal higher home values

          If you have school age children or are planning a family, school ratings are important to your children’s future

          Even if you don’t have school age children, this affects your home’s value both now and resale later

          Here is the USNews ranking of high schools


Parks, lakes, nearby fun, shopping and dining

          Getting outside is good for you, a long drive getting there isn’t.  

          The less time you drive for daily errands, the more time your are enjoying life

          Each of our communities has a map with the top parks, lakes and fun already labeled 


Living where you play & work means less driving which saves you time, money and is a lot better for the environment!
