The year is 2020. How do you guys see Atlanta ten years from now? I wonder if it will similar to Los Angeles and Orange County.

Atlanta will be more like LA (older) and Orange County will be more like Northern Atlanta anything north of Doraville(newer).

Will Milton become the Beverly Hills of the North Atlanta whereas Buckhead is already known as the Beverly Hills of the South? Am I dreaming?

Top three median home prices in Orange County (Milton)
Newport Coast $2,432,700
Newport Beach $1,042,500
Laguna Beach $964,300

Top three median home prices in LA County (Buckhead)
Rolling Hills $1,988,600
Newport Beach $1,887,200
Hidden Hills $1,834,400

no. people in milton love the seclusion of the area, and if/when it begins to draw too much attention they will abandon it to move even further out. there's nothing there anyway except badly designed mcmansions on big, multi-acre lots. (or culdesac subdivisions)




i see alpharetta urbanizing more, as it was just beginning to do until the bubble burst, but milton was hardly even a terribly-named dot on the map without any real infrastructure until a few years back anyway.

it's city-data - just about anything goes. unlike some of the other forums i've been a member of, this place feels much more like the wild west and far less like any kind of community, but that's just how s*** is here.

As great as Buckhead is, it needs to realize its' full potential and continue to strive to be better before it is copied and emulated anywhere else. Don't you think?

I doubt it.

That's only nine years from now. Things could change drastically if the outer loop nears reality and/or Milton County is revived.

When I think of Beverly Hills, I think of Rodeo Drive. Is Birmingham Highway on par with that? LOL

The others are right... you have kind have to get use to it...

Atlanta has a large share of haters and naysayers, especially on this forum. Venture into general U.S. section sometime and it gets really interesting.

We kind of become a common punching bag by these types:
-people with a fetish for a high density inner city
-anti-sunbelt
-other sunbelt cities that see us as a competitor
-smaller sunbelt cities that envy us (but always say they don't want to end up like us... even though they do exactly what we did 30 years back... looking your way Charlotte )
-people hyped up on building freeways
-people who hate freeways
(yes, we make them both mad... we depend heavily on our freeways and absolutely refuse to build more ... just compare use to Dallas and you will see what I mean)
-the people who like segregation, whether they know it or not. Atlanta must be a ghetto, because we have black people and are more integrated than most major cities.
-people who hate the south; afterall we are it's capital
-people who love the south; afterall we aren't really apart of the south...we are a northern city surrounded by the south
-South Georgians.... we take alot of the money despite giving them lots of ours
-The suburbanite haters
-the conservative libertarians in general.... cities take a degree of government investment to work well and they have trouble grappling with that, but many of them also live in our suburbs and in North Georgia and neighboring South Carolina.

Am I forgetting any main groups?

Someone can correct me here, but Buckhead and Milton seem to have the highest real estate prices in the metro Atlanta area.

Now Atlanta's top three is dang cheap compared to the most expensive real estate in OC and LA. Is it just me or do others see tier 1 Atlanta cities like Buckhead & Milton real estate prices going a lot higher by 2020 while LA/OC flat lines or maybe appreciates 1-3% a year for the next 9 years?

Top three median home prices in Metro Atlanta
1. Buckhead $380,892
2. Milton $369,600
3. Vinings $348,400

Top three median home prices in Orange County (Milton)
1. Newport Coast $2,432,700
2. Newport Beach $1,042,500
3. Laguna Beach $964,300

Top three median home prices in LA County (Buckhead)
1. Rolling Hills $1,988,600
2. Newport Beach $1,887,200
3. Hidden Hills $1,834,400

If and when Gwinnett County finally gets that 2nd airport up and running in Lawerenceville. (I am predicting that this will happen by 2020). The distance between Atlanta Hartsfield airport and Briscoe is almost identical to the distance of Johns Wayne and LAX.
