Quote of the Day:
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams" - Eleanor Roosevelt
Atlanta may have cutting edge jobs and creative people, but it is lacking in innovative architecture. Traditional homes are still the norm in this growing city. While there is nothing wrong with this, many Atlantans would like to see an increase in modern homes. California, Miami, New York, and Chicago all possess large modern residential markets, while Atlanta's modern market is laughable in comparison.
In history, Atlanta has been home to less young adults with financial independence. Now that Atlanta has become the second Silicon Valley, and even the second Hollywood, Atlanta is home to many young, successful people who don't yearn for a traditional family home. People are leaving other big cities and coming to Atlanta because of the more affordable cost of living, and many are coming from modern homes. While the condo market has listened and modern condos are popping up all over Atlanta, the single family housing market is responding a tad more slowly.
Why is this? Is it because builders fear spending money on land and high-quality, modern products without being sure there are enough buyers? Maybe. Maybe this slow increase in modern homes will speed up in 2018. Until then, we can appreciate the amazing, cutting-edge architecture of the Mercedez-Benz Stadium. Unfortunately, we can't move in.
