Atlanta Listings are Just a Numbers Game! Why Not List to Sell? - 08:59 AM
Most Atlanta real estate agents will never tell their Atlanta home sellers what they talk about back at the Atlanta real estate office. The truth is that most home sellers do not matter to their agents. It would be nice if the home sold, but they really do not care. It's a numbers game! If you throw enough mud at the walls, sooner or later something will stick! The sad thing is the home-seller is really just a number to the listing agent. The agents that do this routinely list a lot of homes, and only a percentage will sell. That is OK, (11 comments)
When to Say No! - 08:43 PM
This past week I have been inudated to give interviews for local, and national media. One interview would be a live national webinar for a major national news media company, and the other was for a local news complete with a TV camera interview.

The topics included short sales, and the other was for my take on specific subdivisions that have failed in my area and the collateral damage that those failures have caused in my community.

He said there is an attitude of entitlement, that the world revolves around Jimmy or Jane as they try to land their first job. Saddled with college debt, many come into the hiring interview with laundry lists of demands and conditions should the company be blessed with their acceptance of the job offered. When Mr Head Hunter has to explain there are hundreds (8 comments)

AUGUST IS USUALLY A QUIET MONTH FOR HOME SALES - Mother's are running around getting school clothes for the kids. Things start to wind down for the vacationers as well.
