When individuals and businesses choose Acworth for their home, they make a quality of life choice. Quality of life choices are different for everyone, but most families and businesses are looking for educational opportunities, a safe and friendly community, parks and recreation opportunities, a community that celebrates diversity, and a community that has great housing values.
Acworth offers all of that.
We have extraordinary schools within our city, and Acworth was recognized as one of the safest cities in Georgia for the past five years, based on FBI statistics.
When it comes to friendliness and caring, Acworth Tourism surveys find that visitors and residents compare our city with television’s beloved Mayberry.
And we have an abundance of parks and recreation opportunities – two lakes, four beaches and 10 miles of walking trails. Our Logan Farm Park is the largest park located within a downtown historic district in Georgia. Our award-winning programs for children and adults are recognized by Georgia Parks Association.
Atlanta Regional Commission recently approved a master plan that shows Acworth is the fastest-growing city with the best commercial and residential real estate values in the area. Our great quality of life continues to boost property values, and makes us that special community people want to call home – but still there are affordable housing and commercial real estate opportunities.
And with many people wanting to downsize to a “right size” home, we have many neighborhoods to meet those needs.
Our extraordinary commercial real estate growth has balanced and stabilized our tax base. New business owners continue to invest in our city and join our Acworth Business Association. Acworth offers affordable rental rates, and there are approximately 75 prime commercial sites available for sale. Every month, new businesses open in every part of the city.
Recently, I was invited to attend a meeting with our local school principals who shared their mission to prepare our children for college and job placement. Every child’s needs are different and our educators know that not every child is going to college. They have created educational opportunities to teach job skills in plumbing, electrical and culinary fields. In our community, no child is left behind!
As an Acworth hometown Realtor, I know that my clients make a quality of life choice when they choose to make Acworth their home.
