Cumming

Welcome to Cumming

A burgeoning city with abundant nature and luxury homes at incredible prices
 
Up in the northern hills of Georgia, where the Sawnee Mountain dominates the skyline, the city of Cumming is nestled on the western shores of Lake Lanier. The sole incorporated area in all of Forsyth County, Cumming is considered an exurb of the Atlanta Metropolitan area and is under an hour from the bustling urban area. The city is known for its dazzling natural landscapes and outdoorsy vibes, and it’s a burgeoning town quickly on the rise. 
 
Since its inception as a small, rural town, Cumming has grown into a recently blossoming and vibrant city. Due in part to the creation and completion of the Georgia 400 State Highway, which connects Cumming to Atlanta and its closer suburbs, Cumming has become a popular commuter town for those working in the Atlanta area. Outdoors enthusiasts can enjoy vast expanses of beauty, and the plentiful housing makes for an affordable market. 
 
Most of the houses in Cumming were built in the 1990s or after, which means that there’s an abundance of new builds and custom builds available for those looking to buy. The population of just 6,300 people is a good mix of renters and owners. Housing choices include massive executive homes set in a prestigious community for under 600,000, modest single-family townhomes, traditional brick beauties on half-acre lots, and even some million-dollar estates with acres of land and high-end amenities.
 

What to Love

  • Short commute to Atlanta Metro area via Georgia 400 Highway
  • Mountains, lake, and forest reserves to explore
  • Small-town feel with affordable housing

People & Lifestyle

Cumming is an outdoor paradise, and the population here is a blend of family units and individuals who get the perks of living away from the urban bustle while maintaining a commuter distance. Since it’s an up-and-coming town, there’s plenty of opportunity for custom new builds and a burgeoning commercial and retail district. The biggest advantage of Cumming, however, is the hundreds of acres of nature that house diverse landscapes like mountains, forests, and the beaches of Lake Lanier.
