Jasper Georgia Real Estate: Week in Review 03/22/08 - 03/28/08 - 03/30/08 08:53 PM
And the beat goes on . . . Pickens County, GA, inventory of homes for sale was up over the 600 mark for the week ending 3/28/08. On the positive side, pending sales were up as well. (Guess I could really put a spin on the stats and say home sales were up 50% over the previous week, which would be true . . . unfortunately that 50% equates to only one additional home -- a climb from two homes placed under contract last week, to three this week.) New Listing and Pending Sales Activity for 03/22/08 - 03/28/08 There were 22 new home listings added, at (0 comments)
Do You "Pipl" Yourself When No One's Looking? - 03/30/08 03:31 PM
So, I was just hanging out the other day, checking out cool stuff on the web, and I decided to snoop a little into my own life . . . as exposed on the World Wide Web. (Yes, I have nothing better to do with my time than check out cool stuff on the web! Actually, I was trying to expand my network by searching the Internet to find people I had lost touch with, and got a little side-tracked).Anyway, aside from the standard Google search that I routinely run, I hopped on over to PIPL.com and typed in my name, to see what a (2 comments)
Pickens County Georgia: Things to Do In and Around Jasper . . . - 03/28/08 09:28 PM
Just to go ahead and say it straight out . . . there ain't a whole heck of a lot to do in Pickens County, GA! Of course, there are those social activities that exist in most communities -- rec and school sports, clubs, organizations, friends and family, but in terms of organized activities or "touristy" attractions, there just isn't a whole lot. As the county grows this is starting to change to some degree, however, we're not likely to see a major museum, theater, or other cultural highilght open anytime soon.This isn't to say anything against the county or its populace. It's a great place (2 comments)
Jasper Ga Real Estate: Week in Review 03/15/08 - 03/21/08 - 03/23/08 08:03 PM
Another slow week in the world of Pickens County real estate, and one ending with another net gain in total housing inventory. With only 1 new pending sale to offset 23 new listings, we ended the week up at 598 houses for sale in Jasper, GA. Need some aggressive buyer activity . . .

Low price was $99,000 and high price was $599,000; Only one home was placed under contract, for which the list price was $134,900. Time on market for the home placed under contract (0 comments)

Pickens County GA Real Estate: Week in Review 03/08/08 - 03/14/08 - 03/16/08 10:17 PM
Homes for sale in Jasper GA showed a notable climb in inventory for this past week. With 25 homes coming on market as new listings, but only 2 houses being placed under contract, we ended the week up at 591 active listings, versus last week's 572. Not the best news to be sharing, but those are the facts. New Listing and Pending Sales Activity for 03/08/08 - 03/14/08 There were 25 new home listings added, at an average ask price of $292,271.

Dogwood Trace, Pickens Georgia: Home Listings and Sales Data for 2007 - 03/12/08 11:59 PM
Jasper Georgia's, Dogwood Trace neighborhood is a new subdivision and therefore has little historical data to analyze for past performance or future trends, however, the couple of homes that sold last year show a promising start for this new development . . . as do the additional two sales that are pending. Going against a sizable inventory of similarly priced homes and strong competition from other comparable neighborhoods with new homes for sale(most notably, Jordan's Crossing, Wild Timber, Madison Ridge, and Grandview Cove), the short time on market and full sales price of these houses suggests appeal to a certain segment of the market. With the two (0 comments)
Dogwood Trace, Jasper Georgia: $300K+ New Homes on Private Wooded Lots - 03/12/08 11:25 PM
Dogwood Trace in Jasper Georgia is one of several subdivisions offering new homes in the $300,000+ price range (sales data). A pleasant wooded setting on acre-plus lots, and a convenient South Pickens County location, just off Highway 108 (Waleska Hwy) and close to Hwy 515, makes Dogwood Trace a suitable option for buyers in both Pickens and Cherokee County: less than ten miles to Jasper, eighteen to canton, and approximately seven to Waleska. Homes for sale in Dogwood Trace were built in at least 2007 or later, based on one of six basic floorplans (at least for now). Home styles are similar to those seen in many homes within this price range of home -- (0 comments)
Jasper Georgia Real Estate: Week in Review 03/01/08 - 03/07/08 - 03/09/08 10:31 PM
A little bit less activity on all fronts this week over last week's Pickens County, Georgia, home listing and sales activity. With fewer new active listings coming on market, than seen in previous weeks overall inventory actually declined for the week. New Listing and Pending Sales Activity for 03/01/08 - 03/07/08 There were 17 new home listings added, at an average ask price of $332,720. Low price was $84,900 and high price was $1,350,000; Only four homes were placed under contract (pending sales), for which the average list price was $167,199.

Ball Ground Georgia Real Estate: Small Historical Community With a Great Future - 03/09/08 03:45 PM
I think the city of Ball Ground, GA, is often overlooked as a "small" rural community, removed from the bustle of the more southerly portions of Cherokee County. I have encountered online discussions that comment on the lack of "shopping" and "entertainment", and distance from main hubs of activity (including somewhat disparaging remarks), that imply it's not worth considering as a place to live. And to a degree, some of the statements are true. Ball Ground has no mall or megaplex theater or Wal-Mart. But then again, not everyone needs those things on their doorstep -- many in fact would prefer not to (2 comments)
Pickens County Georgia Real Estate: Week in Review 2/23/08 - 2/29/08 - 03/03/08 09:45 PM
Another positive move for Jasper GA pending home sales week-on-week, pushing the total number of houses under contract to a promising total of 47. New listings on market also up, but a slight drop in overall inventory of homes for sale in Pickens County, due to expired and withdrawn listings. Hopefully a trend that can hold . . . New Listing and Pending Sales Activity for 02/23/08 - 02/29/08 There were 27 new home listings added, at an average ask price of $275,929. Low price was $49,999 and high price was $640,000; Eight homes were placed under contract (pending sales), for which the average list price was $157,362. Low (0 comments)
