Entertainment, tech, Fortune 500 companies driving wealth in Atlanta

New York, Los Angeles, and Miami have long held reign as some of the biggest hotbeds of wealth in the US, but there’s a new queen in town.

Atlanta has been steadily transforming into a hub of affluence — the number of individuals with a $30 million-plus net worth in the Atlanta metro area increased by nearly 22% from 2014 to 2017, according to research provided to Business Insider by Wealth-X.

Consequently, the demand for luxury homes in Atlanta is stronger than it has ever been, Alex Page, luxury marketing manager at Harry Norman Realtors, a Christie’s International Real Estate affiliate, told Business Insider.

Three Atlanta-based Compass real-estate agents told Business Insider that luxury home sales have been on the climb. So, too, have housing prices: From January 2014 to January 2019, median home prices in Atlanta have increased by 83%, compared to 38% nationally in the same time frame, according to Zillow.

The growth in wealth — and its spread to luxury real estate — is tied to Atlanta’s booming industries.

According to Page, over the past several years, the Atlanta metro area has become home to entertainers, Fortune 500 execs, and techies, thanks to the film and television industry tax incentives, the relocation of company headquarters and regional offices, and development of technology incubators fueling job growth.

A growth in Atlanta’s wealthy class is creating a demand for luxury real estate.
