NORTH COBB -
Essentially everything west of I-75 is considered West Cobb and that includes the great cities of Kennesaw, Powder Springs, and Acworth. What was once predominantly country is now one of the most rapidly growing areas in metro Atlanta, and the rolling, wooded terrain lends itself beautifully to residential developments. Most homes in West Cobb are traditional, and West Cobb and Kennesaw Homes for sale are available in all ages and prices starting from about $200,000 to over $1,000,000. The average West Cobb new home price range is still lower than in East Cobb because land is more abundant farther out from the perimeter, but West Cobb once seen as "the place to go to get more home for the dollar" in Cobb, now has become more urban with many new shopping and entertainment centers like the Avenue West Cobb. Starting in 2001, West Cobb has seen the development of many high end and luxury priced new home neighborhoods with Kennesaw homes for sale ranging from $500K to luxury homes over $1.5 Million, including several golf communities. Harrison High and the new Kell High Schools are among the best in the county and homes in these school districts are much sought after.
WEST COBB -
- Originally a Methodist campground, Smyrna has a beautiful new city hall and city center including fun boutique shops and great restaurants - all compliments of big tax dollars from heavy new residential development boom over the last ten years. World-class actress, Julia Roberts is from Smyrna and would hardly recognize the town from her high school days! Known as the Jonquil City, this is a community that takes pride in improvement. The city has brand new public buildings, and a major development is planned for the old Jonquil Plaza at a cost of about $100 million. Located in the midst of a residential and commercial building boom at the intersection of I-285 and I-75 with Cumberland Mall and the Galleria complex, which includes a mall, a hotel, the Cobb Galleria Convention Center, and several office towers, the city still retains its quality as residential community. Due to the commercial expansion there are few properties left for residential construction, so most available homes are resale, however there is some pricey new upscale residential development going on. Traditional ranch homes are very popular with first time buyers and in demand due to the convenient location of this area to I-75 and I-285, the perimeter highway. There are also townhomes, cluster homes, and condominiums. Neighborhoods are very stable as residents enjoy the location so much they seldom move. Like many areas near the perimeter (I-285), Smyrna Homes for sale prices have escalated in the last few years with prices ranging from $400,000 to $1 million+. Through 2010 Smyrna has seen the development of many condominium communities starting in the mid $300's to $600K+.and a few new cool mixed use retail/entertainment sites with great shops and restaurants which make living here fun for young and old.
