Big Canoe has always been on the radar screen of those desiring a beautiful home in beautiful surroundings. Now, this community which represents resort living at its finest is available at the lowest prices seen in years. So, if you are serious about a savvy, can’t miss real estate investment in one of the most desirable of gated mountain communities…here are some tips to help you search efficiently which will result in a home or weekender that is a perfect fit for you and your family and friends.
Know What You Must Have
Spend some time creating a must-have list and also a list of what you would like to have if possible. It is even helpful to rank these in order of importance…this will help prevent you from being overwhelmed as you begin your search and the list will keep you focused. Is a level entrance with no steps to your home a priority? Is it important to you that each bedroom have a bathroom for your family or visitors? Do you prefer an interior view of Big Canoe or a distance view to Atlanta or Amicolola Falls? Are you willing to tackle a kitchen remodel or do you prefer new construction? Are you OK with maintaining decks and siding or will you insist on low maintenance fiber cement exterior products on your dream home? Are you looking for the deal of a lifetime foreclosure that may have several compromises or are you willing to pay for that nearly perfect house and location? Your list may change as you begin your search and actually see what is available.
Consider Location Inside of Big Canoe
Now that you have decided that Big Canoe is the place to be, consider your location within Big Canoe. Do you commute to Atlanta daily and need to stay close to the gate, or do you want to climb to the mountaintops for a view of Atlanta’s skyline at night? Do you want seclusion surrounded only by nature, or do you prefer to be surrounded by friendly neighbors on a cul-de-sac? Do you have small children or teens whose priority is being close to the pool and beach, or is your priority being close to the clubhouse to meet with friends? Do you want to be close to the fitness center or is a daily walk out your backdoor around a meadow more your style.
Spend Some Time on the Internet
Spend some time on the internet seeing what is available, make some notes, narrow the field; then consult Georgia Foothills Realty where Emory, Paula, or JoAnn can help you begin your search inside the gates of this spectacular community. They will guide you through the entire process at a pace that suits you, making your search easier. You will be rewarded with your Big Canoe home or weekender that is a perfect fit for you.
