Investment in Georgia Real Estate :  5 Cities can give high returns

1.Atlanta Real Estate

 When looking at Atlanta through a real estate lens, the numbers come up big. It’s a city with an incredible amount of upside and an ideal real estate market for investors looking for a winning combination of cash flow and appreciation.

The Atlanta real estate market is red-hot, with median sales prices up by nearly 16% year-over-year. Job growth, a growing population, and housing affordability makes Atlanta an attractive market for investing in rental property in 2021, especially when 50% of the households in the metro area rent rather than own.

When it comes to thriving metropolitan areas with relatively reasonable home prices, Atlanta is a serious contender. Boasting a strong economy, tree-lined neighborhoods, vibrant culture and urban walkability, Georgia’s state capital is a place where newcomers put down stakes and locals never leave.

2.Augusta Real Estate

Out-of-state investors are gravitating toward a daisy chain of often overlooked and out-of-the-way markets”in smaller cities in the Southeast, such as Augusta, Georgia. According to a recent study, real estate investors in rural markets will very well benefit from a post-pandemic boom in 2021.

3.Gainesville Real Estate

The Gainesville real estate market is a strong seller’s market for home and condo sales. Gainesville home buyer demand continues to outstrip housing supply in nearly every price point, often leading to multiple offer situations as home buyers compete for the same houses.

Also, the economy is pretty stable in the “Poultry Capital of the World.” All in all, it could be a very good area to invest in 2021 and beyond.

4.Columbus Real Estate

 Columbus is the third-largest city in Georgia and the fourth-largest metropolitan area. The city consists of 33 neighborhoods. It has affordable townhomes, and affordable condos.

In July 2021, the median list price of homes in Columbus, GA was $168K, trending up 9.4% year-over-year. The median listing price per square foot was $102. The median sale price was $126K.

Columbus, GA is a buyer’s market as of July 2021, which means that the supply of homes is greater than the demand for homes.

All in all, Columbus real estate market is set out to be super hot in 2021 and beyond.

5.Savannah Real Estate

Savannah is located along the Savannah River, about 20 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and 3 ½ hours by car from Atlanta.

Savannah has been proactively wooing out-of-state technology workers to the metro area, creating a potential bonus for rental property investors. That’s because many tech employees are millennials, one of the prime demographic groups who prefer to rent rather than own where they live.

Add to this Savannah’s strong population and job growth, lack of land for new development, and a high quality of life and it’s easy to understand why the demand for real estate in Savannah is so strong and hot and this will continue to be so in this year and beyond too.
