GEORGIA #1 STATE
TO RETIRE TO IN
A recent article published by Jeff Ostrowki for Bankrate has some great information on a trend realtors have been seeing for some time now regarding whose moving to Georgia and why.

Atlanta and its metro areas are home to 6 million people. These areas are known for a robust job market with companies like UPS, Coca-Cola and Home Depot to name a few. When people are looking to retire they may not want to leave the state so they look to the outlying areas as well as the Coast.
Georgia is rivaling Florida as a retirement destination. Here is a recap from the Bankrate article:
Four mild seasons
Major airports to go visit family and friends
Median home prices lower than the national average
Low cost of living
Light tax burden (see more below)
Although Florida and Tennessee have no state income tax, Georgia exempts Social Security retirement benefits and other pension payments for residents 62 and older. Everyone is looking for a way to save money!
I am a little behind in reading my magazines, but I picked up the June issue of Better Homes & Gardens this morning and this recipe caught my eye. I love eating a salad on a hot summer day. This one looks delicious as it has tons of seasonal veggies and sliced chicken for a filling meal! Enjoy!

MEET THE CAMDEN
Allison Ramsey Architects is one of the websites we recommend for home plans in Cumberland Harbour.
This home plan is nice for a smaller lot size (preferably in our Park Place enclave) but also is large enough in square footage (just shy of 2,000 sq. ft.) for a family with children.
The first floor of the Camden has a wraparound porch, generously sized living and dining rooms, as well as a kitchen with a center island, first floor laundry room and master suite. The oversized garage is in the back of the home where there is alleyway access (if building in Park Place).
The second floor has a separate suite with bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen area and an additional two bedrooms, bathroom and media or playroom.
Call us to if you are interested in this home plan and we can help you find you a home site to build it on!
Cumberland Harbour offers homesites on deep water, marsh front, lake views, nature and our cottages at Park Place. We also offer assistance with home and design plans as well as access to our Signature Builders.

We look forward to serving you a tall glass of sweet tea!
