Within 30 minutes of Athens & the UGA Arch you can purchase land for $3000-4000/acre and homes as low as $30000. Travel 15 minutes in any direction and you can be in Horse Country or a Private Get Away surrounded by old growth timber. We have executive condos just blocks from campus. Basic living quarters for $50-70K and high-end exquisite homes all closely situated to enhance our diverse population.
The suburbs offer the classic 1950’s – 1970’s neighborhoods predominately brick ranch homes in the low to mid $100’s and the newer and larger homes built in the past 10 years coming in from the $200’s to 400’s on average. We have several Historic neighborhoods where homes have a very wide range when it comes to price. In 2010, I have seen Historic homes sell between $70K and $700K depending on the size and condition. Based on my experience living in Athens and my professional real estate knowledge, I believe the values of historic homes in Athens Georgia near UGA will start to appreciate in the near future. Therefore, historic homes in Athens are a relatively safe real estate investment for UGA students, alumni and fans.
In the current Buyer’s friendly housing market, there are great opportunities in all price ranges in and around downtown Athens Georgia!Posted by
