Have you been thinking about relocating your family to Georgia? RNR Moving loves our beautiful state, and would like to give you some of the top reasons families move to Georgia. Who knows, maybe this will change your mind about living in the South!
Affordable and In-demand Housing
The housing market in Georgia has had a significant rise in 2015, and according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, sales levels are 18 percent above what they were a year ago. The beauty of the Georgia housing market is that you can have affordable housing yet get more bang for your buck than in other markets. If you’re interested in living in the more urban area of Atlanta a variety of available price points can allow this to happen.
In 2014 SafeWise created a report listing the 50 safest cities in Georgia. Reports like these and other national ratings are just another reason why our families love our lovely Georgia neighborhoods. Check out the full SafeWise report here.
You may have never heard this statistic, but Atlanta is home to a third of the most Fortune 500 companies in America. This just goes to show that the quantity and quality of Georgia jobs available is very unique. Certain areas of Georgia have also become a mecca for young professionals and recent college grads (Atlanta, Athens, Augusta and Columbus are all cities with high salaries), showing that job opportunities abound.
Georgia’s capital is fast becoming one of the most diverse metropolitan areas in the Southeast. It is a true melting pot, just as our country started as. Culture abounds throughout every region in Georgia, making it a wonderful place to raise a family.
Top Notch Education
Although often discounted, Georgia school systems have been rated among the best in the nation in several cases. Some of the top-rated school districts in 2015 were: Buford city schools, Forsyth County schools, Gwinnett County schools, Marietta city schools, and Cherokee County schools, to just name a few. Emory University, UGA and Georgia Tech were among some of the top college rankings. (Information according to Niche.com and the AJC.com)
