Retreat to Roswell, One of Georgia’s Best Cities

Posted on February 12, 2021

Roswell became an official city in 1854, and has since been dubbed Georgia’s best city to live in; chosen twice by Atlanta Magazine as the best place to live in the metro Atlanta area. With millennials now make up the largest percentage of buyers, and with the recent shift of working remote eliminating commute times, Roswell has become a popular destination for younger buyers. The city has seen a 27% year-over-year growth in its median sales price of homes, now $458,000; Roswell is on the real estate fast track.

The city’s population and size remains modest, creating a small town feel that everyone falls in love with. With its picturesque downtown filled with independently owned shops and restaurants, it’s no secret why people love it so much. It truly is a town with a perfect balance of work and life.
