Ranch homes for sale in Madison, Georgia

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Lake Country 284620

Are you thinking of relocating to Madison, Georgia? Looking for a ranch home that will make it easy to  age in place? Prefer a move-in ready home, less than 10 years old?

There are some excellent choices right now, and your search will lead you to just 3 communities:

Whispering Lakes - a greenspace community about 10 minutes east of downtown, and minutes from the Blue Springs Marina on Lake Oconee.

Buckhead Manor - Madison's most popular subdivision just 5 minutes from downtown and close to the school campuses, aquatic center and library, and Heritage Park.

Madison Lakes/Creekwood section - Madison's only gated community, about 10 minutes south of downtown and convenient to shopping and I-20.

Whispering Lakes has the most to choose from currently, with 7 homes on that market ranging in price from $189,900 to $249,900. Size and upgrades will make a difference, of course, and the higher priced homes will have basements. Homes with private frontage on the community lake generally command a premium.

The Creekwood section of Madison Lakes was built by Ryland Homes with features that appeal to empty nestors - including luxurious master suites, well appointed kitchens, and smaller footprints ranging from 1600 to 2000sf. There are just 2 homes currently available - priced at $239,900-$249,900.

Buckhead Manor homes come in a wide variety of sizes and styles, and there are currently just 2 ranch homes available - priced at $236,000 and $242,500.

This is great information for prospective home buyers. I like your best value pick. You should be attracting retirees from the DC market area. Many are looking for more affordable homes and a good quality of life for their retirement years.
