Five things you should know before you invest

Once you know them, you’ll know that investing in Atlanta is the most sensible investment decision you’ll make this year.

Atlanta, Georgia, is one of the major distribution hubs for the United States, as well as for much of the rest of the world dealing with the States.  As such, it is a big draw for corporations and families alike.

YDL Property Investment has spent more than two years looking into the real estate investment opportunities in Atlanta, and we’d like to share some of our insights to show you whyNOW is the time to invest in property in Atlanta.

1.  The city is thriving

Georgia, USA has a GDP equal to that of South Africa, with a population less than a tenth the size.  So, a population that represents less than 10% of the population of our entire country generates the same amount of money.

2.  It has the world’s busiest passenger airport

With more people coming and going through this city than anywhere else in the world, it has an awful lot going for it.  With young families, students attending the no fewer than 66 colleges and universities, and headquarters of Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, SunTrust Bank and CNN, Atlanta is a thriving community, education and business hub.

3.  Voted Top Moving Destination in the USA in 2013

This relates to businesses moving into Atlanta, as well as families and students.  Building materials and construction company, BMC, moved its top executives to Atlanta this year because they needed access to a ‘…larger population base, a large talent pool and fully accessible air travel,’ said CEO Peter Alexander.

4.  Atlanta’s population growth means more demand for property

Metro Atlanta has the ninth largest metropolitan population in the country, and both international and national migration is booming.  And, from 2012 to 2013 it had the sixth fastest growing metro area in the United States.  This continual growth means that there is a consistently growing demand for properties.

5.  The Atlanta property market continues to expect high capital growth

In 2013, sellers achieved over 95% of their asking price.  In the 4th quarter of last year, the median number of days a house was on the market was no more than 50 days (37% of them sold within a median of just 21 days) – compared to 81 days the year before and 112 in 2011.  With the influx of businesses and families into this already stable city, the appreciation is expected to continue over the next few years.
