Smyrna Voted Hot Spot to Live in Metro Atlanta

Smyrna-JenniferPhoto4.jpgAccording to REMAX, Smyrna is Metro Atlanta’s hottest hotspot for new homes.

A new report from REMAX says Smyrna was on the list, followed by Chamblee, Cumming, and then Alpharetta in fourth. The rankings were developed by looking at factors like increases in property values and the number of days homes spend on the market as well as surveys of brokers in the area.

Realtor Tom Ash thinks Smyrna should expect to see a boosted population, which will also increase the tax base.

“As far as what it means for Smyrna residents, it’s great because if you’re a Smyrna resident, your property values are increasing,” said Ash. “With the market changing like that in Smyrna, it’s just good for everyone out there. It promotes development and it just brings in new buyers and makes it a hotter market, and that’s good for everyone in Smyrna.”
