I'm sure it would be feasible to live in Buford or Cumming and commute Gainesville. Those cities are so far away from Atlanta that there shouldnt be much traffic.

Nearly 5 years on and they're still selling lots in that community.
Lots as in parcels, not lots as in lots of properties.

The community is far away from the interstates.
Being close to the interstates or state highways is a big selling point. And getting to them on 53 isn't fun.
Based on my observations of the housing market in this area, the resale homes that have the least amount of trouble selling are those that are not in deed restricted communities with monthly or annual maintenance/dues and have some privacy, and space. At least an acre or two minimum. You're not really in the suburbs anymore. You're moving out to the country where people tend to want a country property.

It may be a wonderful community with lots of ammenities and easy to move in, but moving out, should you decide to sell is something you need to consider as there are not a lot of high paying jobs in that area (or any jobs for that matter) to be able to afford houses in that price range. If they were the last remaining lake front parcels, that might be different but that's not the case.
