Why Kennesaw, Georgia

Why Kennesaw

We love Kennesaw for many reasons, but let’s start with some history!

Kennesaw is filled with around 32,000 residents that consider the city a great place to work and live.

The city was founded in 1887 with a history based on the railroad industry. It’s located in northwestern Cobb County and features one of the country’s best national parks – Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Kennesaw Mountain’s summit is the highest point in all of Metro Atlanta with an elevation of 1,808 feet above sea level.

Fun fact – the city was renamed because of the mountain!

From the top of Kennesaw Mountain, you can see the skyscrapers of Atlanta!

Why do we love Kennesaw?

Kennesaw, Georgia is not only the home to our main office, but it is also one of our favorite places in Georgia. So, why do we love Kennesaw?

  1. Great events throughout the year, such as the Big Shanty Arts & Crafts Festival and farmers markets.
  2. Easy access to Downtown Atlanta.
  3. Great dining, shopping, and entertainment.
  4. Space to grow!

But what about the real estate market in Kennesaw?

Let’s get to the quick facts first:

  1. Median home value | $152,800
  2. Median rent amount | $1,121
  3. Homeowner market share | 61%
  4. Renter market share | 39%

We see a higher renter percentage than other towns in Georgia due to Kennesaw State University and other universities located around Atlanta. Students are choosing to rent apartments and homes across the area because they don’t want to commit to a traditional home loan and be stuck in one location after graduation.

We do see many families choosing to rent before purchasing their first home as well. Year after year we see the rental market in Kennesaw growing and we expect to see this trend continue.
