cherokee county ga real estate: 2010 Real Estate Deals Won't Last - 01/07/10 01:24 PM
Many experts think our real estate values hit bottom in 2009 and interest rates will jump in 2010 so NOW is the best time to cash in on this market as a buyer!
The deals in Bradshaw Farm Golf Community in Woodstock and in Lake Arrowhead GA in Waleska are the BEST DEALS in decades.  For the rest of the metro Atlanta Market, whether it is a horse farm or swim & tennis community, the deals are incredible in Cherokee, North Fulton, Forsyth, and surrounding counties.

cherokee county ga real estate: Cherokee County Georgia Award Winning Realtor - 05/04/09 04:51 PM
I recently received an award for being the #1 selling residential agent in Cherokee County, for the third year in a row, which is of course a huge honor.  I had been kind of bummed about my sales in 2008 since they were down from 2007, but after seeing how much all agents were down in sales, I felt grateful to have had such a good year in such a challenging market.
After 13+ years being in the real estate business, including closing 700+ transactions in the past 6 years, I consider my "top" award to be the ERA National Customer Satisfaction Award.  This … (0 comments)

Sales declined again this past year, comparing 2008 to 2007.  The lower price ranges market remaining stable and the higher price ranges have the greatest declines.  Sales in the 300K+ range declined 45%, in the 225K-300K range, by 43% and in the 150-225K range by 39%.  Under 150K remained stable, with about the same volume of sales in 2008 as in 2007.

cherokee county ga real estate: Cherokee County Market in 2008 - 12/26/08 07:46 AM
Overall sales in Cherokee County for 2008 are going to come in lower than the 2007 market, which was also down from 2006. 
What this means to sellers is that choosing an agent becomes even more critical.  In 2005, many opportunists entered real estate, thinking it was easy, but now many of those agents are leaving the business.  Real estate is more than order taking!  It takes experience & negotiation skills, extensive marketing, and thorough follow up.  The rate of deals falling through is greater than ever before, so experience in holding a sale together is also critical.
Be sure to ask these 5 basic questions … (0 comments)

cherokee county ga real estate: Cherokee County GA Foreclosures - 09/26/08 06:41 PM
I never would have guessed our local Cherokee County Georgia real estate market would end up with more foreclosures every month (about 250) than actual sales every month (about 200).  It is just a sign of the times.  The entire Atlanta Area Real Estate market is suffering a similar fate, although areas with great inventories of new homes seem to struggle the most.
Some of the real estate deals are incredible, with homes costing less than an SUV!  Many people are trying to diversify their investments, by purchasing investment or second home properties, especially with all the turmoil on wall street.  At least real … (0 comments)
