Duluth has been around since the early 8100's and has been the main area for those wanting to move out of the city and into Gwinnett County, well known for lower property taxes. The area is bounded by the Chattachoochee River and extends to I85 north to Sugarloaf Parkway. A diverse area, the largest growing population is the Korean and Chinese community as they have found Duluth to be an attractive commercial and banking area for their families. Schools are higher in academics than most in Gwinnett with several new Elementary and Middle schools built in the latter part of the last decade. Average home prices are very affordable with single family homes averaging at the low of $240,000 to a median of $330,000. Higher priced homes are found nearby in Johns Creek, Berkeley Lake, and Alpharetta; only 4 miles to the east of downtown Duluth. The City of Duluth has recently gone a major renovation of their downtown corridor to attract more outdoor venues, such as concerts and art events. This area saw most homes built in the 70's and 80's so age is the factor for it's affordability. Not all subdivisions have covenants, which maintain your equity, so be aware of the homes near the one you are interested in purchasing. A need for a home inspection is imperative due to age, use of crawl spaces, and neighborhood culture. Shopping is complete with Gwinnett Place Mall and surrounding strip centers surely to appeal to a large number of consumers.
