The old real estate saying, “location, location, location” certainly applies to Temple, Georgia, one of the most attractive residential and commercial real estate markets in all of Georgia.
Situated just 42 miles west of Atlanta and 11 miles north of Carrollton, Temple is an excellent location for those who want to live or work near the major metropolitan area of Atlanta but still enjoy the laid-back lifestyle and history of a smaller community. For those seeking commercial real estate, Temple’s favorable location at exit 113 along Interstate 20, along with its proximity to the Norfolk Southern Railway route between Birmingham and Atlanta, provides a strategic position for a variety of shipping and receiving needs for businesses of all sizes. The Temple Industrial Park, located just south of I-20 is home to Janus International, Decostar, and Royal Metal products. These three manufacturers alone employ more than 500 area residents.
Temple’s more than 4,000 residents have many affordable real estate options in and around Temple. Homebuyers will find many excellent options if they wish to purchase an existing home. Those who wish to build will find affordable land for sale, including many properties that include larger than average lots. Families with children will find the convenience of local schools a plus as well. Three schools are located in the city, Temple Elementary School, Temple Middle School, and Temple High School, all of which are part of the Carroll County School System. Higher education options are close, too. The University of West Georgia in Carrollton and the Carroll County and Douglas County campuses of West Central Technical College are both located within a short drive of Temple. The availability of houses and land, combined with Temple’s convenient location to schools, shopping and services, make it an excellent option for real estate buyers seeking big-city conveniences combined with small-town living.
Temple has even more to offer its residents than affordability and convenience, however. The City of Temple Downtown Development Authority has been busy in recent years working to revitalize the historic downtown area. As a result, several specialty retailers, restaurants, and service providers now call downtown Temple home. In addition, an active recreation department and senior services center provide a variety of activities for local residents of all ages, including sports and educational opportunities. Businesses seeking a prime location along Highway 78 will find Temple’s downtown real estate offerings certainly worth investigating.
Easy access to high quality healthcare is another benefit of living in Temple. Two hospitals, Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica, are a short drive away. Each hospital has a 24-hour emergency department, as well as a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services and a well-trained staff that bring an exceptional level of medical care to residents in the city and surrounding area.
Overall, Temple’s strong business and industry base combined with convenient housing and amenities makes it a prime location for real estate investments in residential, commercial, and property management opportunities.
