paulding: Paulding County Ga. Market report Nov 2008 - 11/24/08 10:16 PM
Here is the most recently available market information from Realist for Paulding County Georgia home and condo sales.
The September to September home sales figures are about as expected. There about a 30% drop in sales volume and a 10% drop in the average sales price.   A lot of the price drop may be attributed to the exteme decrease in more expensive new home sales. 
The good news is that there are homes still selling at all. While 186 home sales is not as great as in the past, it does show that there are still buyers in the market place.  Nice … (0 comments)

paulding: Dave Ramsey - You fix You! - 10/08/08 05:42 AM
Can Washington fix things and what are our own attitudes?  As some of you may know, I am a fan of financial advisor Dave Ramsey.Sometimes I don't agree with him 100% but I certainly can't argue with his success or common sense approaches to financial matters.  Last week I posted Dave's plan for the financial crisis.

Now that current plan is signed what does Dave think?

paulding: 90 Day listing? Not likely - 09/12/08 07:32 AM
Here is a link to an article on Realtor Magazine online and first published in "Business Week" .  It lists the top 10 fastest selling zip codes in the entire U.S.
To be in the top 10 the average days on market would need to be 91 days! So where do people get this idea about a 90 day listing being average or normal?  I'm not sure.  Our local mls requires a minimum of 90 day listing period to even input the home into the mls.
So is 90 days a reasonable time frame? Not according to this article (unless you happen … (3 comments)
