Carrollton, Georgia, is a city of big-city amenities coupled with small-town convenience, making it one of the most attractive real estate markets in all of Georgia.
Carrollton is conveniently located just 50 miles west of Atlanta. The city’s population is approximately 25,000, but the population of the Carrollton metro area is much larger. As a major commercial center in West Georgia, Carrollton attracts talent from throughout Carroll County and from surrounding counties, including Douglas, Polk, Paulding, Haralson, Heard, and Coweta counties in Georgia and Cleburne, Clay, and Randolph counties in Alabama. The expansive employment opportunities make Carrollton the prime residential and commercial real estate market in West Georgia.
Economic opportunities are abundant in Carrollton. The city has a walkable historic downtown, where residents and visitors alike enjoy specialty restaurants, cozy bistros, and a variety of shopping and services. In other parts of the city, big box shopping centers and locally-owned businesses offer shopping, dining, and service opportunities for every taste and budget. Carrollton also has a strong economic base. Southwire, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of wire and cable, is the top employer in Carrollton, followed by Tanner Health System, Carroll County Schools, Decostar/Magna, and the University of West Georgia. Commercial development is ongoing, so many commercial real estate opportunities are available for a vast array of construction, manufacturing, technology, and agricultural businesses. Established companies and entrepreneurs alike are invited to explore Carrollton’s business-friendly environment.
Carrollton’s leaders have long recognized the importance of a trained workforce, and local education institutions are preparing the next generation for the job market. Minutes from downtown, the University of West Georgia campus is home to a diverse population of over 12,000 students, faculty, and staff. The University, known as UWG, has a growing athletics program. The Carroll Campus of West Georgia Technical College also contributes to the educational opportunities offered to area residents. Carrollton is served by two school systems, Carroll County Schools and Carrollton City Schools. These institutions work together to prepare the workers needed to support the area’s strong economic base now and in the future.
In addition to education and business, Carrollton is home to a flourishing arts community. Cultural activities presented by local theatrical, musical and artistic talent, as well as national and international traveling shows and exhibits, frequently come to the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center, The Amp, and the UWG Townsend Center. Carrollton Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Arts Department offers a variety of activities for residents of all ages, including gymnastics, swim teams, camps, and programs for older adults.
Outdoor activities abound in Carrollton as well. Area residents especially enjoy excellent golfing, fishing, swimming, camping, horseback riding, and adventure venues located in Carrollton and close by in the surrounding county. The area’s mild climate allows almost year-round enjoyment of outdoor activities, like the Carrollton GreenBelt, a 16-mile trail system designed for pedestrians and non-motorized uses. The GreenBelt connects several Carrollton neighborhoods with the city school campus, UWG, city parks, and several shopping areas. Residential real estate options throughout the city offer something for every taste and interest. Lake living, golf communities, townhomes, condominiums, subdivisions, established neighborhoods, and senior living—Carrollton has it all.
Easy access to high quality healthcare is another of Carrollton’s strengths. Tanner Medical Center Carrollton provides a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services. The hospital has a 24-hour emergency department, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services, and several specialty centers, including the Tanner Heart and Vascular Center, the W. Steve Worthy Maternity Center, and the Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center. Well-trained and highly qualified physicians, nurses, and healthcare specialists in Carrollton bring an exceptional level of medical care to residents in the city, as well as to residents throughout West Georgia and East Alabama.
