Who is Thomas (TJ) Underwood

In the past few years Fayette County has seen some important movement as far as real estate goes.

In Fayette County there has been many transitions as a number of schools have closed due to projections that were not on target.  A new elementary school (now a part of Pinewood Studios) was built and it basically closed before any students were able to attend in Tyronein addition to Historic Tyrone Elementary closing.

In Fayetteville and Brooks a number of schools also closed, however in Peachtree City there were no school closings but the number of students attending various schools declined in the city. 

However, Peachtree City has planned development for the Wilksmoor Village area on Peachtree City's Northwest side and also plans to connect existing and new subdivisions to Highway 74 near Kedron Drive to ease some of the concerns of residents in that area.

Three subdivisions have been approved for construction in Wilksmoor Villagethe newest village in Peachtree City:

1) Crestwood (Builder Kolter Homes with 650 age restricted units for persons 55 and up)

2) Everton (Builder Weiland Homes with 204 age targeted units that have no age restriction)

3) Legacy (Builder Weiland Homes with 425 units)

In addition potential plans call for a tunnel under the parkway (golf cart and other pedestrian use) a short distance from the existing North Side of MacDuff Parkway.  There is also an area in the village that is zoned for industrial use. 

The area is located in a traffic bottleneck area and a number of subdivisions in the area only have one entry pointMacDuff Parkway located off of Georgia Highway 54 West which is approximately one mile long nowand would reach approximately three miles or so after the extension to Highway 74.

Developers plan on extending MacDuff Parkway across the railroad tracks (with CSX approval) with a new bridge that will lead to Highway 74 at the Kedron Drive area.

Wilksmoor Village is one of six villages that are located in Peachtree City and the others include:

All that being said, Fayette County (Peachtree City, Fayetteville and Tyrone  are the major cities in Fayette County) is still seeing a reduction in the number of grade school students and an increase in projections for an aging population of 450% by 2040 according to the Atlanta Regional Council or ARC as they are known by.

In addition, out of 1,800 U.S. Counties studied (according to RealtyTrac from 2007 to 2013)Fayette County has the highest rate of Millennials leaving at 31%!

According to RealtyTracMillennials (those 28 and younger) and those 65 and oldereach make up about 15% of the population in Fayette Countywith the key being that Millennials are decreasing in numbers in the Countywhile those 65 and over are increasing in the County.

In essence Fayette County is having a hard time retaining the younger generation once they graduate from college or obtain trade school skills.

Unless that trend is reversed somethe potential for a negative pull on the housing market could exist in the future as Millennials buy houses for growing familiesand those 65 and older look to downsize.  

It is not uncommon for Millennials to be attracted to markets with good job prospects and low unemployment while boomers are moving to lower populated  areas where home appreciation is slower.

With Fayette County being a great location to live for both Millennials and Boomersit is important that local leaders come up with a strategy to attract more Millennials and also provide a nurturing and adequate environment for the Baby Boom generation.

On the pricing side of homes in Fayette County the prices have been trending upward on resaleshowever, there is not a large supply of quality resales (Summer 2014).   Multiple offers on quality resale homes in good condition are not uncommon.

You can learn more about pricing and the HOME BUYING and HOME SELLING aspects of buying and selling your home with our new and empowering BUYING Guide and SELLING Guide that is now available!

Builder activity in Fayette County is increasing as a number of new and existing subdivisions have houses under constructionwhich is good news for those who desire quality communities on the South Side of Atlanta.
