You know we have an office in Kentucky, servicing Kentucky and Indiana, and it’s our first office location. You’ve heard about our Nashville, Tennessee office. We’ve been singing it from the roof tops recently because it’s our newest addition to the family. But I’m sure you haven’t heard too much about our second office in Atlanta, Georgia.
If you hadn’t noticed, we got a beautiful website and then opened our Nashville office, so don’t get us wrong, we love Georgia. We were just a little busy. Now, we are ready to talk about our second home: Georgia.
Why Atlanta, Georgia?
Simply put, Atlanta is growing. When college graduates get out, one of the factors they consider is, “What’s a growing city?”
People go where the jobs are, once hired they will need apartments, goods, and such. As people flock there, so do businesses. Smart businesses go where good labor and growth are congregating. Plus, already there businesses are growing, wanting more labor and inventory. Meaning even more opportunity for people and businesses alike, turning this into an upward cycle.
Suburban Office Parks
Investors and businesses are noticing some of the large older buildings, complexes, and sprawling land that were forgotten up until the last couple of years. They see potential to convert or revamp. Not only is it typically cheaper to use an already established building than to build a new one, but it’s also because of the number one rule in real estate: Location.
These suburban office parks are akin to mini cities, with office buildings, hotels, shops, and restaurants all in a walkable distance. The Atlanta Business Chronicle says, “More U.S. employers are seeking offices amid walkable, amenity-rich neighborhoods near transit because that’s what they believe their young, talented workers want. More developers and their capital partners are turning to these projects because they believe they achieve higher rents and occupancy.” Meaning once again, that upward cycle for businesses and job-seekers.
Georgia Commercial Real Estate
Atlanta has an interesting vibe – it has some old southern charm with modern professionalism mixed in, so Russell Roberts Appraisals, Inc. fits right in. We have experience working with a variety of properties and the unique business culture that is evolving is perfect for commercial appraisers. We are needed when a property is being sold, after being revamped, and for future considerations, like taxes.
All of these new or old properties need commercial value appraisals, insurance appraisals, tax appraisals, and so on. And that’s just one suburban office park, that’s not even the other countless buildings that need to be appraised, from that vacant land down the block to the latest high-rise in the skyline. They all need appraised – and that’s why Russell Roberts Appraisals has a second home in Georgia and we love it here!
