There has never been a more exciting time to live, work and play in Acworth. Everywhere you look, growth is happening. Our city leaders are doing a beautiful job to make this a top destination in Georgia. There is something for everyone, lakeside and now parkside.
Our new community center, Lemon Street extension, pedestrian overpass, and depot interactive museum are nearing completion. Downtown buildings are being purchased, and new businesses and restaurants are coming to our city, and investing in our community. Golf carts abound! We have two beautiful lakes, wonderful parks and trails, and the friendliest people you could imagine.
With the growth we are experiencing, Acworth continues to enjoy an increase in home values. Acworth’s final 2018 housing numbers are as follows:
• Cobb County, Acworth: 2018 median home sales price was $243,000 (5.6 percent increase from 2017), the average time on the market was 12 days, and 1,017 homes were sold.
• Paulding County, Acworth: 2018 median home price was $304,888 (4.5 percent increase from 2017), the average time on the market was 24 days, and 299 homes were sold.

(Data from FMLS – this does not reflect homes sold under the radar and represents detached homes only.)
Real estate offices are receiving calls daily from people wanting to live in Acworth. Homes are selling before they ever hit the market. In 2019, we will see new inventory of single-family homes available in Lombardy Village and at the end of Dixie Avenue on Lake Acworth. In addition, the city is currently working with investors interested in developing other areas in Historic Downtown Acworth.
If trends continue, 2019 will be a year when Acworth will really shine.
