Many folks come to us from other states. Many from Florida. One of the things that are issues for buyers are location. Usually buyers are coming from crowded locations. They are looking for wide open spaces for their primary or secondary home. Or are they ? This first Picture is in the gated community of Big Canoe. Now saying gated community to these folks is like giving garlic to Dracula. But this is what one of North Georgias' premier communities look like. Those mountains in the back ground are Big Canoe as well.
This second shot is in the gated community of Benttree. How big is 3/4 of an acre with a stream border and surrounded by green space. Take a look this is a gated community as well
Now here is the point. If you are looking for a summer home then there are multiple gated communites that we at All Mountain Realty can work with you in. You will have your privacy. You will also have things to do. With some restrictions you will insure that your next door neighbor does not start a chicken farm. In addition the gates act as an added security feature. This is a consideration if you are going to live there part time.
What about HOA's you say. Big Canoe runs 225 a month. But there are other communities with less amenities that are still at 500 a year !!
Now if you want to hunt on your property or raise horses you need to look elsewhere . We at All Mountain rRealty are what are name implies. We work with folks finding larger tracts as well. But if not consider all your options. I work with so many people who are out in the wide open spaces that say, " what a mistake I made." I live in a gated community but at the same time I feel like I am in the wide open spaces. Especailly when, from time to time, a bear walks through my driveway.
