Suwanee is one of the nicest suburbs of Atlanta that continues to attract new residents because of its comfortable surroundings. A large part of that attraction is the wonderful luxury homes available in a variety of styles and neighborhoods that are perfect for families of all sizes as well as professionals who either work from home or have a short commute into the city.

Suwanee is located about 30 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta and is known for its top-ranked schools, parks, and its downtown and entertainment district. Suwanee is perfectly situated near Interstate 85 for those who commute to jobs in other parts of the metro area, but it is also known for abundant job opportunities with several large companies and government agencies within the city limits, which offers a great work-life balance for those with families.

The market

The market currently is tilted toward sellers, meaning the number of people looking for Suwanee homes for sale is higher than the number of homes for sale. While it can be challenging to find a home in a seller’s market, buyers shouldn’t stress. There are several strategies and approaches buyers can use to soon be enjoying a luxurious home in one of Suwanee’s tree-shaded neighborhoods.

Find a great realtor

If you are interested in moving to this wonderful community, you should first partner with a licensed real estate agent who has several years of helping clients find homes in Suwanee. A knowledgeable agent will find out specifically the kind of home you are looking for and then narrow down suitable homes to view. For instance, your agent will help you find a home with the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms and the right kind of amenities, such as a rec room, a home office, and a backyard that is large enough and has the right amenities for years of fun and entertainment. If you plan on starting a family, an agent will take that into account during the home search to assure you have enough room in the years to come.

A smart agent will also help you narrow your search based on your budget. It’s important to know how much you can afford to spend on a home, as well as how big of a mortgage you can afford. Your agent knows Suwanee’s neighborhoods inside and out and will identify Suwanee real estate in your price range. If homes in your price range aren’t available in certain neighborhoods, your agent will continue to search in other desirable neighborhoods until he or she has a list of great homes to begin viewing.

One of the attractions of the Suwanee market is the range of homes available. For instance, young couples looking for their first home can start with an affordable condo or townhome that will be perfect as they save up for a bigger, detached single-family home. Couples looking to begin a family who need more space will have a range of single-family homes to view, with enough bedrooms for their growing family. And families with children will find many spacious homes with plenty of room for everyone near great schools, shopping and dining, and the many other attractions in Suwanee.

Achieving the dream of home ownership in Suwanee can take many forms. There are upscale gated communities that offer luxury homes as well as townhome and condo developments. Suwanee is also well-known for new construction homes springing up in several developments. Suwanee is also perfect for people who chose to have their dream home built for them by one of the area’s reputable construction companies.

New construction

Among the new construction options is luxury custom homes in posh neighborhoods, including Lambert Cove and The River Club. There are also new developments offering townhomes with various floor plans and sizes in Kennedy Walk and Suwanee Towneship. As residents will quickly find out, owning a townhome or condo offers all the wonderful aspects of home ownership without many of the hassles of maintenance and upkeep other than inside the unit itself. Many people enjoy the amenities offered in condo and townhome developments, while others consider them as starter residences while saving for their first single-family home.

Great neighborhoods
