Canton, Georgia is one of the fastest growing cities in Metro Atlanta and is located in Cherokee County which is about 40 miles to the north and west of Atlanta. It is located just to the north of Holly Springs and south of Ball Ground. The City of Canton is located in what used to be the center of the Cherokee Nation. In its early years, Canton was a quiet mill town and known for "Canton Denim" and renowned for the high quality it produced along with marble. In 1832 the population grew enough to warrant a name, Cherokee Court House. A year later it was renamed, Canton.
Interstate I-575 runs north/south through the city and I-20 runs through the center east and west. The foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains are just to the north of Canton and the overall topography is of rolling hills and beautiful countryside.
Canton Real Estate Market
The Canton real estate market is strong and stable for a number of reasons. For one, the type of home you can buy is either newer, larger or both than many other northern Metro Atlanta areas. Therefore, many people make the additional time/commute sacrifice to get the home they want in Canton since many of the same lifestyle amenities are now available nearby. Another reason the Canton real estate market is strong is because of the schools. Many of the Canton schools rank very high on national school rating websites and published test scores tend to be much higher than the Metro Atlanta averages. Parents who are concerned about schools see these scores and the demand for the area in general rises because of it. There are also a lot of options for new construction homes in Canton at prices that remain more affordable than some of the other north Atlanta areas.
