In Atlanta, we’re fortunate to have mild weather during the winter, free from heavy snow, blistering chilly winds and months of ice storms. That means we can still get out and play during the winter months, and we’re lucky that the metro Atlanta area is home to many fun, cold weather activities. Those living in a Traton Homes’ community will find that they are centrally located to all of Atlanta’s winter fun.
It’s always an exciting time of year when the seasonal outdoor ice rinks open for business. Currently, the Centennial Olympic Park Ice Skating Rink and The Rink at Park Tavern are open and ready for you to come down for a visit. The Centennial Olympic Park rink is the largest ice skating rink in Atlanta and is set among the beautiful skyscrapers of downtown Atlanta.

What’s on the list of “must-haves” for the location of your family’s next home? Is it award-winning schools, great quality of life, convenience to necessities, small-town charm, safe environment or room for your growing family to live and play? We might consider ourselves lucky if we can get two or three things from our list. But, why should you settle on just a few of your “must-haves” when you can have it all at Traton Homes’ Westminister Place in Milton?
In a recent “On Numbers” study, Milton was recognized as having the best quality of life in Georgia. Several factors were taken into consideration for this designation including the community’s strong economic stability, high-quality housing and effective educational system. In fact, Milton High School was named one of Newsweek Magazine’s Best High Schools in America, 2010.
Sounds great, right? Well, it just keeps getting better. Conveniently nestled in Milton, Westminister Place is the perfect place to raise your family. All homes sit on one-acre plus, basement sites and feature distinctive finishes such as 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, iron balusters, granite countertops, three-car garages and more priced from the mid-$500,000s.

From teachers to active military, police and fire personnel, there are many people who influence our lives and make the world a better place, often without us even noticing or saying thank you. To honor these individuals who enrich our lives and keep us safe, here at Traton Homes we would like to show our appreciation to these community heroes. That’s why we’re continuing our Community Champions program in 2012.
With the Community Champions program, we offer a 2 percent discount to all those who are actively employed as a teacher, or with the United States military, fire department, or police department. To receive the discount, qualified buyers can simply print off the certificate and present it to a Traton sales representative. It’s that simple. The Community Champions 2 percent discount certificate is valid on all purchase agreements written from Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2012, and the home must close by Dec. 31. Read More→

Ask anyone that has lived in the Atlanta area and they will tell you — the weather overall, year round is quite pleasant here. If you are thinking of relocating to Atlanta from New Jersey, New York or Connecticut, we think you’ll like Atlanta’s humid subtropical climate, which is characterized by warm summers and cool winters, is ideal for families and individuals that don’t want the hassle of snow blowing, hurricane evacuations, mudslides and either super-hot or super-cold temperatures. Moderate temperatures and humidity and not too much ice or snow describe the Atlanta climate perfectly. Snowfall is typically experienced once or twice per season, and is usually less than two or three inches. Ice storms do occur, but not regularly, as for the majority of the winter, temperatures remain above freezing. The average annual temperature is 61 degrees, with July being the hottest month (averaging 89 degrees) and January being the coldest month (the average low being 33 degrees). Read More→
