If you’re considering a move in Georgia, a recent ranking has your answer.
HomeSnacks, a company that provides bite-sized information about where to live, has unveiled a list of the best places to live in the Peach State.
To rank the best places to reside, the company considered safety, cost of living, commute time and population density.
In third place was Sandy Springs, which jumped from fourth place in 2020.
It’s median home value of $447,800 and 3.6% unemployment rate — the second lowest in Georgia — earned it an 8.5 out of 10 SnackAbility rating.
Johns Creek landed in second place earning a SnackAbility rating of 9.5. The former Alpharetta city became it’s own entity in 2006 and has a population of 83,637. Residents here have some of the highest incomes in the state with a salary of $116,070. And crime is also low as only 34 violent crimes occurred in 2019.
In first place was Alpharetta, which came out on top for the second year in a row.
The home of mixed-use development Avalon has an unemployment rate of 4.6% and public schools are ranked third in the state when it comes to per-student spending. Homes average $392,200, making them the sixth most expensive in the state; that equates to a high desire to live there. And residents take home nearly double the median household income of Georgians, earning $105,908 annually. Those factors combined gave Alpharetta a 9 SnackAbility rating.
