Georgia has more to offer than delicious peaches, iconic filming locations (looking at you, Walking Dead), and gorgeous scenery. The Empire State of the South is also a ripe location for anyone looking to invest in real estate.


Why should you consider investing in Georgia? 

1. The Economy Is Thriving

An exciting variety of industries contribute to Georiga’s $435 billion GDP. Companies like Coke, the state of Georgia, Emory University, Welstar, and Georgia Power bring great diversity to the kinds of income the state relies on.


2. More Workers are Moving In

A prosperous economy is extremely attractive to workers of all backgrounds and skill levels. As the population increases—notably in urban centers—they’ll need places to stay. The Bell Team does a ton of business with buyers who are here because of Georgia’s increasing opportunity.


3. Real Estate is a Solid Investment

A home, for most, becomes their most important investment. Not only is it important... it's lucrative! Last year, home values appreciated by an average of 4.9%, and parts of the state are expected to appreciate by as much as 8.23% next year.


4. Real Estate is Improvable

You can enhance rental properties in several ways, and as drastically as you’d like. Want to redo the kitchen with a custom vent hood, granite countertops, and an island? Go ahead! Want to simply repaint? Do that too! No change is too small, and little changes add up.
