Year after year, Forsyth County Georgia delivers on quality of life. It remains in the top 20 nationwide for growth, often flirting with and surpassing even a top 10 spot. Not reaching the number 1 spot is the result of careful planning though. But why plan to avoid being ranked 1st in growth? The answer is in the history of boom or bust markets for housing.
New Homes in Forsyth County Ga
In the early 90’s, Forsyth county Ga new homes were something of an anomaly. Most new homes were related to subdivided land passed from generation to generation. But the writing was on the wall as the Georgia DOT began widening major roads and rural highways. There was even an added extension to Ga 400 from I-285 down to I-85. This was once an area that was difficult to find gas on the way to the North end of Lake Lanier. Now it had become the place to be for those looking for clean air and beautiful scenery without giving up access to Atlanta. With the perimeter only 20 miles away, it’s easy to have the best of both worlds in North Georgia.
Watch and Learn
County and city planning were becoming crucial. Areas like Cumming Ga had to temper their new found popularity. The trick was to do so without hurting new homes sales in Cumming. Looking to the East, they witnessed the population explosion experienced by Norcross, Duluth, and Snellville. They saw that while one town had allowed for full boom building, they ran out of steam within a decade. At the same time, some Gwinnett areas were so mired in tradition and red-tape that they missed out altogether. From those observations came a plan that would sustain growth in Forsyth county and Cumming Ga for over 20 years. Boards and planners launched a balance of building permits and infrastructure projects. This ensured a steady growth that would burn reliably and bright without quickly overheating and fading. Then the economy crashed! This area still enjoyed above average rates of resells and new construction. New school zones and additional shopping even created some mild expansion.
