Alpharetta real estate has always been good. Even during the “real estate bubble”, Alpharetta didn’t fare as bad as some other cities around the nation. Real estate in Alpharetta is desirable due to its proximity to Atlanta, upscale shopping and dining experiences, and its variety of homes ranging from luxurious mansions in exclusive gated communities to smaller neighborhoods with active associations. Alpharetta is home to many parks and the popular Big Creek Greenway, an 8 mile long walking/running/biking/rollerblading path stretching from Windward Parkway to Mansell Road. Alpharetta’s Wills Park is a great spot for many activities: Equestrian facilities, baseball, disc golf, pickleball, swimming, tennis, walking trails, playgrounds, recreation center, community center, pavilions and Waggy World Paw Park, an off-leash dog park for well-behaved dogs of all sorts. In 2009, Forbes ranked Alpharetta the number 1 place to move. More recently, Forbes ranked Alpharetta the 7th friendliest place to live!
