georgia: So where should you live? - 06/22/07 02:24 PM
Is there a difference between moving to a city or an unincorporated area?
You bet there is!  Before you move, you need to know the differences.
So you've found the area where you want to live!  Now the questions is should you move to the little local city or the unincorporated neighborhood?  What is the difference between a small city and a small unincorporated town in the same area?  There are important differences, pros and cons to each, that can affect your lifestyle.  The choice is yours.

georgia: Georgia Real Estate Tips - For Sellers Only, Part 3 - 06/21/07 05:00 PM
Preparation is key if you're planning on selling your home. 
It goes without saying that preparation is the key to getting things done. With your home, you have to give it the once over to impress potential buyers.
Before you go out on a date, what do you do?  You clean up and put on your best outfit in an effort to make the best impression.
When it comes time to sell your car, what do you do? You wash and wax it all in an effort to make it look as good as possible before potential buyers come to look at it. … (0 comments)

georgia: Georgia Real Estate Tips - For Buyers Only, Part 1 - 06/21/07 04:42 PM
You've selected the perfect home, now what?  Now, I strongly recommend you have a professional home inspection performed.  Yes, you should have one even if you're purchasing a newly constructed home.  This is not the time to skimp on dollars and cents.  It's smarter to spend a couple of hundred now as opposed to a couple of thousands later. 
A proper home inspection will give you the comfort of knowing your new home has been checked for breakage, disrepair and/or any other potentiaol problems.
It all starts with choosing a professional home inspector who can give your home the thorough review it needs.  So don't be afraid … (2 comments)

georgia: Georgia Real Estate Tips - For Sellers Only, Part 2 - 06/21/07 04:17 PM
Your home may be a great place to rear a family or just live. The problem, of course, is a buyer does not know that. This means creating curb appeal is important. 
Love at first sight is a cliché, but it has an underlying truth to it as do most clichés. The simple fact is we are an emotional species. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, we always form a first impression of everything we come in contact with. That impression may be conscious or subconscious. The undisputed fact, however, is our first impression determines any subsequent decisions a majority of the time. … (1 comments)

georgia: I don't want them to lose their house... - 06/11/07 03:28 PM
With foreclosure rates reaching all-time highs, I try to do my part to combat as much of it as I possibly can.  One way that I choose is to stay in constant contact with my clients that have Adjustable Rate Mortgages.  I made it my business to explain to each of my clients, during their loan process, how the adjustable interest rates work and also made it a point to stress the importance of improving or, at the least, maintaining their credit profiles. 
I choose to stay on top of my clients because I care.  I've been finding that a lot of homeowners with adjustable rates forgot that … (6 comments)

georgia: Just give them a call... - 06/08/07 02:04 PM
You know what they say... "If you don't call them .... someone else will."
Today I got a phone call from a buyer who is ready to purchase a home.  He said he met an agent who showed him and his wife 2 houses and they haven't been able to catch up with her since then.  He said they got tired of leaving voicemails.  He went on to tell me that he never signed an agency agreement because she never asked.  His question to me was can you help us find a home and will you call us back.  That seems like such … (13 comments)

georgia: Georgia Real Estate Tips - "Buying Homeowner's Insurance" - 06/06/07 10:58 AM
As you prepare for your real estate purchase, there are a few things that I recommend you keep in mind when shopping for homeowner's insurance.  They are as follows: 
1. Remember you're a statistic.
To an insurer, you're not a person; you're a set of risks. An insurer bases its premium (or its decision to insure you at all) on your "risk factors," including your occupation, who you are, what you own, how you live, and now most importantly... you credit history.
2. Know your home's value.
Before you choose a policy, it is essential to establish your home's replacement cost. This is the amount that if would take … (0 comments)

georgia: Are you from Georgia? - 06/05/07 02:35 PM
Hey wait a minute!  "No one here is even from Georgia..." It's safe to say that a good majority of the people living in metro Atlanta are from someplace else. As a matter of fact, many people I come into contact with always express extreme surprise when they meet someone who was actually born and raised in Atlanta. I suppose it could seem a bit strange that all the New Yorkers moving down for a little southern charm end up living in a city full of other New Yorkers.  I shouldn't talk because I'm one of them.  :)    I've probably run into people from New York … (10 comments)

georgia: Georgia Real Estate Tips - For Sellers Only, Part I - 06/04/07 01:29 PM
When you decide to sell, the first thing you should do is investigate the local housing market.  Many newspapers list the selling and asking prices of recent sales, plus how long the houses were on the market.  Note the prices for your neighborhood during the last several months.
Check how sales were running say, a year ago, so you get an idea of whether the market is heating up, cooling down, or staying put. This exercise should give you a sense of what your home is worth.
Selecting an agent
You may decide that you can sell your home without an agent. It's an attractive thought, … (0 comments)

georgia: House Hunters - Atlanta, Georgia - 06/03/07 04:21 PM
So you've decided to take the new home plunge...  now what? 
Your first step should be to figure out what city or neighborhood you want to live in. (Remember the old saw about "location, location, location.")
For overall demographics and data on metropolitan areas, you can visit a city site like's annual Best Places to Live list. For more detailed neighborhood information, check out sites like Yahoo! Real Estate, or for comprehensive school and demographic information on a number of communities. Look for signs of economic vitality.  Ideally, you'd like to find a mixture of young families and older couples, low unemployment and good … (2 comments)

georgia: Buying Georgia Real Estate? You need to know your budget. - 06/01/07 03:15 PM
Investing in a new home is usually an exciting time for most people.  You're touring different homes, comparing floorplans, envisioning exactly how and where you'll place your furniture and if you're lucky... enjoying your Realtor's company.  After all, you are spending a lot of time together... you might as well make a connection. 
Now for the important part!  Before you've even step a foot into a new house, you should get pre-approved through a reputable mortgage lender or bank.  This is to make sure your credit, income and debts are all taken into account when determining how much house you can afford.  If you would like to get a preview, … (2 comments)

I just scored REEEALLY big points today!  They accepted the contract!  Who is "they" you ask.  Well, they're a builder right here in Conyers, Georgia.
