This is quite possibly one of the coolest events of the Spring Season in Atlanta. There's 120 Beers to sample between 1-6 pm in the East Atlanta Village on May 30, 2009. The event is in the heart of the East Atlanta Village Commercial District at the intersection of Flat Shoals and Glenwood (Just off I-20 Moreland South exit).

In the Metro Atlanta Area the economic stimulus of the $8,000 tax credit to first time homebuyers is showing signs of positively impacting the market. The additional $1,800 max or 1.2% of sales price state tax credit signed into law last week by Governor Purdue will be applied to ALL home buyers - NOT JUST 1st Time Homebuyers, but it only last for the next 6 months and to properties that were on the market at the time of the bill being signed into law. First time homebuyers typically fall below the $250,000 threshold on their purchases. In the Atlanta market, (0 comments)

4 Multiple Offer Situations in One Day - the Market is Picking Up! - 05/14/09 03:38 PM
Yesterday, I ran around Atlanta delivering certified checks, writing contracts, & gathering signatures on addendums in order to meet "Highest & Best" Deadlines in multiple-offer situations on Bank Foreclosures. The properties ranged from Cash Investors looking in Bouldercrest Acres, East Atlanta, and Kirkwood, to first time home-buyers making offers in Grant Park to Alpharetta. It was INSANE! 12 pm deadlines, 5 pm deadlines, 12 midnight deadlines, WOW -- the blood was pumping & buyers were nervous "Would they get it?" "Did they offer enough?" "Did they offer too much?" - Consulting, providing market analysis's, double-checking conditions & terms. Heck, there were (0 comments)
How many realtors have heard "Why do I need you, I've got the internet? I know the market." They either think they can buy a house on their own or sell their house for an astronomically higher number than anyone else because "their house is different", heck "I did the renovations myself". All I can think is "Wow, good luck with that." There's no doubt, people have, can and will continue to buy/sell real estate without professional help -- but is it a wise decision?

So you want a "steal"? Well, you might want a realtor to give you the 4-1-1 on what's really happening before going on a bidding frenzy at one of these auctions.
If you wanted to buy a condo and get a "steal of a deal" - that there are 3 buildings in the Midtown area that will be conducting auctions over the next 45 days so this might be a great time for you two to consider purchasing. These are developments that are lowing prices 40%-60% for the auctions. While the media would make it seem like they are (0 comments)
