Forsyth County, Georgia

About Forsyth County

Forsyth County is conveniently located between Atlanta and the north Georgia mountains. With one of the lowest tax rates in the metro Atlanta area, and consistently ranked as one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States, due to the 8,000-plus local businesses located there, it is no surprise to real estate developers and Forsyth County residents that new home developments are popping up everywhere. And, with a median household income of more than $85,000, and a home ownership rate of nearly 86 percent, it is now considered to be the "richest" county in Georgia, in 2015, according to the U.S. Census Bureau report.

But the attraction to Forsyth County goes beyond any census or rankings. Residents choose to live there because of its close proximity to resident employers, nationally recognized schools, Northside Hospital-Forsyth, Lake Lanier, and more than 2,200 acres of award-winning parks and recreation. Those, along with each of Forsyth County’s cities offering its own distinct culture and lifestyle, make it one of the best places in the state of Georgia to live.
