I am trying to relocate to Gwinnett County, specifically Grayson, GA. I hear the city is growing and the property is prime. Some say it is wise to invest in homes there now and that the possibility of property value increasing at a fast pace is great. I am also concerned with the elementary school system and how good the special education programs are for special ed/ special needs children. Can anyone advise me on either or both issues?

I just moved to GA - on the outskirts of Lawrenceville in the Grayson school district. Grayson currently has three elementary schools (Cooper, Pharr, and Grayson elementary) Each of them is very good, but I hear that Grayson elementary is the best. Cooper is the newest - and there's another one opening up next year Lovin. Grayson HS is terrific from what I hear. It has a techology center annexed to the HS building that was built with the financial contributions of IBM, Am Ex, and Marriott Hotels. The middle school - McConnell - is one of the highest rated middle schools in Gwinnett (do a google search for "Georgia Governors Student Achievement Report" for more info on the schools.

As far as the area goes - home prices will no doubt increase - in my subdivision I paid $243,00 for a 3100 sq foot home earlier this year. The same home would now cost $265,000 in the subdivision.

The area is growing by leaps and bounds. It's like watching a town being built.

Most of the new construction in "in-town" Grayson will cost you a min. of $300K up, but you can find something for a little less on the outskirts. And I mean a little less ($260-$270)

Finally, one thing to watch is that they are building a new HS/School cluster in the Grayson-Dacula area by Tribble Mill Park (gorgeous area). Many of the homes in the that area were priced between $400-$800. The HS is scheduled to open in 2009. Therefore, if you buy now (before 2009) the equity in your house - I believe - will skyrocket. For whatever reason, New Schools = more equity and increased property val.
