atlanta: The Return of the Pink Pig - 11/03/12 08:38 PM
The Return of the Pink Pig It’s not a Hollywood blockbuster super-hero sequel, but it is a good time and an Atlanta family tradition. On a recent shopping trip to Buckhead’s Lenox Square Mall, I noticed that it was already time to partition off part of the parking area to make space for the Pink Pig. Since 2004, the Pink Pig, a small amusement park type ride for children, has appeared seasonally at Lenox Square, but for long-time Atlanta residents, this yearly tradition brings back memories of the original Pink Pig, located in the old Rich’s building in downtown Atlanta (0 comments)

I don't know many homeowners who enjoy buyers and agents coming through their home for weeks or months on end. In previous years, it was often difficult to gauge how long it would take to sell a home in Atlanta, but after reviewing recent home sales data, many Atlanta neighborhoods are selling homes in RECORD TIME!
So how long it really takes to sell (2 comments)
