    “So, How Much House Can YWe Get in the Mountains?”
    BY CHAD LARISCY
REALTOR & TEAM OWNER OF THE MOUNTAIN LIFE TEAM / KW REALTY
You’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how much
home you can get for your money in Union County. Buyers from Florida and other parts of the country — even Atlanta — can’t believe they can live on the lake or have a mountain house on several acres for what they were paying back home. Even compared to some of our neighboring counties, you’re going
to save $100,000 or so over comparable property.
It’s Better Here!
Blairsville-Union County
truly is the place to get
away, relax and enjoy
God’s creation. We have
lakes and rivers. We have
one of the nicest state
parks in the country, as
well as the highest point in Georgia. You won’t find quite the same level of tourism found in some of the surrounding areas, so you’re not going to be searching for a parking spot on Friday night when all the cabin rental folks hit town.
Our area is very conducive to people who want a slower pace of life. They love the small-town feel and the friendliness of the community. The icing on the cake: The county is very well-gov- erned and property taxes are among the lowest in Georgia. And young families are always happy to find that the school system is just phenomenal.
There Are So Many Options
Your choices really are wide open here. You can go remote-and- rustic with a mountaintop retreat, or stick closer to town in one of our charming neighborhoods. Acreage options run the gamut from secluded land bordering the national forest to mini farms. Depending on your elevation, you could be looking off into the mountains of Western North Carolina. Or, you could be down in a valley near a bubbling creek and looking up at Brasstown Bald, which is really a spectacular view.
Looking for Amenities?
Another distinctive trait about our area is the number of com- munities with strong amenities. Not just paved roads and a gated entrance, but swimming, tennis, a clubhouse and even mountain golf. Waterfront communities typically feature lakeside pavilions
