Business Boom

John McHenryTucker is undoubtedly one of the fastest-rising business destinations in the Metro Atlanta area.  Each month, the Business Boom will seek to show different examples of how Tucker’s business scene is flourishing.

A critical component to a strong, diversified economy is a range of housing options available so that our current and future residents can have solid options from renting to owning. As part of the Atlanta metropolitan market, the City of Tucker is blessed with not only a central location, but also a range of affordable housing options.

Corbett Jordan, a licensed REALTOR with Smoke Rise Agents, has been working in the City of Tucker since 2017 and has found that it is not only a highly desirable market, but it’s also one that delivers a range of resale product.

“Tucker is one of the best places to buy, whether it’s your first or forever home,” she says. “There are plenty of housing options in all price ranges from the starter in the low $200,000s to luxury over a million. If you are looking for a home within walking distance to downtown Tucker, near great parks and recreation, or something with wide lawns and established landscapes, there is a neighborhood for you.

“The housing trend lately seems to be leaning toward updated mid-century modern homes. Regionally, Tucker is still a great deal. One last thing, don’t list a home in Tucker unless you mean it – it will sell!”

Weslee Knapp, who owns Keller Knapp Realty on Main Street, sees the same diversity.

“Tucker is perfectly located in the Atlanta metro market with opportunities for first time home buyers to executive level housing,” he explains.

In this recent development cycle, almost all the developments that had sputtered and laid dormant as “pipe farms” are now getting built out. This includes the 161 townhome Ashbrooke development off of Roadhaven Drive. This development ranges from the $220,000’s to $280,000’s and offers affordable new construction with excellent access to US 78. The City also contains a number of upscale apartment complexes including Green Park on Weems Road. Just constructed in 2016, Green Park contains 310 units with a range of one, two and three bedrooms and is currently 97 percent leased.

Ashley Rivers, a year-long resident, shared, “I love being here at Green Park. It’s nice and quiet, but also convenient to downtown, Stone Mountain and Decatur.”

There are also several senior living facilities with affordable units including The Phoenix at Tucker off Idlewood Road, Hearthside in downtown and Northlake Senior, which you can read more about in our Business of the Month feature on the following page.

Tucker will continue to work to keep this robust range of housing so that we can all live, work and play right here within this special community throughout our lifetimes.
