One of Georgia’s Leading Residential Markets

Homes in Gainesville-Hall County are recognized as one of metro Atlanta’s best values with average prices just over $200,000. Coupled with the lowest property taxes of any exurban county in the state, it’s clear why the community has been cited as one of America's best places to live by numerous national publications.

Whether it's resort-style living on Lake Lanier or the small-town life in Hall County’s "community of towns," Gainesville-Hall County is clearly one of the state’s most popular residential markets.
In the face of the recent nationwide housing recession, southern Hall County has been home to metro Atlanta's fastest-growing retirement property. With retirement communities ranging from the Village of Deaton's Creek (a Del Webb property) to the high-end continuing care retirement community of Lanier Village Estates, it's no wonder that Gainesville-Hall County is recognized year after year by national rating services as one of the best places to retire in the United States.

Gainesville-Hall County has the largest concentration of pre-retirement and active adult communities north of Atlanta; however, the area also is well-balanced with the region’s greatest concentration of housing for young professionals. In addition, Lake Lanier is now ranked as the most affordable second-home market for metro Atlanta – all of which demonstrates that there is something for everyone moving to Gainesville-Hall County.

The strong home market naturally goes hand in hand with Gainesville’s status as the region's primary retail hub (over 8 million square feet of stores) and the area's commercial headquarters with several million dollars in office and professional space. Throw in the fact that Gainesville-Hall County is far and away the No. 1 medical provider for Northeast Georgia (see Health), and it's easy to understand why the community is such a "great story to tell."
