Pickens Georgia Real Estate Market Report: Home Sales Data for April 2009 - 05/29/09 10:09 AM
As hinted at in last month's Jasper Georgia home sales report, it appeared possible that we would see a slight improvement in the number of houses placed under contract of sale in Pickens County for April 2009. Sure enough, both in prior month AND year-on-year comparisons, April '09 performed better than both. This is definitely a positive sign, but still a way to go before announcing a major turn around.A total of 26 homes* were entered as either pending / contingency sales or closed transactions, which is a significant improvement over March '09 numbers and a 30% increase in sales over April 2008! Still trailing 2007 posted data by more (0 comments)
Take Back What You Said! Exercising Caution in the Information Age . . . - 05/18/09 09:38 AM
As I was finishing up my previous post on the future of information and communication, and having just read a number of other posts, such as Jeff Belonger's very poignant post on the current $8,000 tax credit / downpayment controversy and the rapid dispersal of misinformation, I wanted to follow up the thought with some commentary on the position we find ourselves in today in terms of the speed and ease with which we can disseminate information.When I take a listing, I can spread the word like wildfire through email, blogs, Twitter, real estate websites, syndication, social networks, and other such resources, which can be (2 comments)
Marketing and Information Sharing: What Does the Future Hold? - 05/17/09 04:31 PM
Came across an interesting blog post on baekdal.com the other day entitled "Where is Everyone?". The article explores the historical trend in information sharing from local community, through newspaper, radio, and TV, to the Internet and our current social networking trend. What was interesting was the author's theorization that we will very soon see a point where all communication moves directly from source to end target, elimating the "middle man". I'm sure the phenomenal growth of Twitter had a lot to do with this notion . . . as we are now able to obtain information directly in real time from eyewitnesses, manufactures, retailers, professors, (0 comments)

Pickens County Georgia Real Estate Sales Data for March, 2009 - 05/02/09 12:02 PM
While the number of homes placed under contract in the month of March improved over February's numbers (which is to be expected at this time of year), in my opinion, the number fails to indicate a significant turning point in the local housing market.Out of 500+ homes for sale in the Jasper Georgia area, eighteen pending sales is a relatively small number, and is still almost 36% below numbers posted in March 2008 -- an already declining market. When compared with March 2007, the number of houses sold last month reflect a drop of greater than 50%, so certainly nothing worthy of note.With the (0 comments)
