Lake Lanier Homes & Real Estate in Buford, GA

Buford and Gwinnett County, Georgia

The progressive city of Buford GA lies less than 40 miles from Atlanta, but is a world away in culture and lifestyle. Also around 40 years younger than Atlanta, and a full 130 plus years younger than Savannah, Buford was named for a wealthy Virginia attorney and legislative member, Algernon Buford. The civil war was over in 1865, and Buford's township was declared in 1872. The burning and damage done to Atlanta and other southern cities after the war has never had a place in Buford's history.

From the beginning, this city was centered around business and education. Long known for its high ranking Buford High School, students early on came from miles around and other counties to attend and acquire its more prestigious diploma. The football team has one of the best records in the State. Buford had the first bank in the county, and with its more wealthy and industrious citizens, it's never attained the sleepy, southern reputation of most of Georgia.

Present day Buford is upscale and Buford GA real estate is valued for its industry as well as its proximity to the much desired Lake Lanier resort area. Lake Lanier homes represent some of the most luxurious lifestyles in the south, but offer easy commuting to the well-paying jobs and enterprise of Buford and Atlanta. Likewise the cities of Lawrenceville GA and Braselton benefit from being close to both places. Buford also boasts its own marina on Lake Lanier, Holiday Marina.

Lake Lanier Real Estate

Lake Lanier comprises 60 square miles and over 600 miles of shoreline. Although built in the 50's for flood control, this beautiful lake has grown to attract an estimated 7.5 million vacationers every year, from fishermen to pleasure boaters.  Since Buford has the Holiday Marina, and nearby Flowery Branch has Aqualand Marina, the lake's allure draws residents to both cities. Lake Lanier real estate is some of the most highly sought-after property in the state of Georgia.

We have numerous Lake Lanier foreclosures, although they are not as deeply discounted in price as homes in Buford or Braselton. Lake Lanier lakefront lots are few and far between, most having been built upon, and you can expect to pay a premium price for the good ones that are left.
