When you search through the latest listings of Columbus, GA – Phenix City, AL area homes, you first find those that fit your top-line needs. Then you winnow down that list. Some of the candidates will seem more appealing than others; and some will seem to be over- or underpriced.
Before making a final judgment on which homes bear a closer look, the most successful homebuyers also factor in qualities that may not be at the top of their own personal priorities list, yet which make a difference to the majority of homebuyers. In other words, they keep in mind the … (1 comments)

columbus ga realtor: 7 Things No One Tells First Time Homebuyers - 04/02/13 01:09 AM
First time homebuyers in the Columbus, GA/Phenix City, AL area are told a lot of things —
“Save your money,” their parents advise.
“Location, location, location!” their friend’s friend cautions.
 
Reasonable advice, for certain. But there some important elements of the home buying process which a typical Columbus, GA/Phenix City, AL area first time homebuyer doesn’t usually hear. I’ve listed some of the most important ones, in no particular order:
1.  Mortgage rates you see advertised aren’t usually what you get
The banner ads are everywhere online: “3.2% rates!” “No money down!” But the truth is, mortgage rates vary greatly. The … (1 comments)

columbus ga realtor: Advice for Relocating to Ft. Benning, GA and Columbus, GA - 07/18/12 01:47 PM
As moving time approaches, most internal stress meters start twitching around the time we have to figure out how many cartons it's going to take. A cross-town move is  one thing -- sometimes you can even handle it yourself (with the help of bribable friends and relatives, of course).
 But suppose you have just accepted a new job promotion in the Columbus, GA area or assigned to Ft. Benning. Of course, you're immediately excited by the adventurous prospect of the summer's relocation.  But suppose Columbus, GA is located in a new zip code - and maybe even a new state.

columbus ga realtor: Salt Water Pools - Pros and Cons - 07/18/12 01:31 PM
For most of us, a swimming pool would be a truly valuable addition to any home. It isn't just the fun pools bring to the backyard recreational space -- they add value to Columbus, GA property listings when it comes time to sell. For many years, homeowners could choose their pool's size and shape, but that was about all. The water was going to be fresh, and the maintenance method, chlorination. 
But that was before the saltwater pool began to come into its own as a popular choice. One of the reasons is that most people have misconceptions about the plusses … (3 comments)

columbus ga realtor: REO Investment: Cash Cow or Cash Drain? - 07/18/12 12:59 PM
Novice and professional investors find themselves in competition over Columbus, GA REO and foreclosure opportunities. The goal of building a long-term, profitable investment is the same for both groups, but the professionals have an institutional advantage. They have systems in place and experienced personnel who bring a high degree of confidence to their estimates of the financial tradeoffs for any candidate property. Novices have to rely on their own calculations.
For readers unsure of that  'REO' expression, it's an acronym that is short for 'real estate owned.' Not very illuminating, is it? What most people mean when they describe a local REO is … (3 comments)

columbus ga realtor: Yard Signs still sell Homes! - 06/13/12 03:00 AM
When it comes to Columbus, GA property search resources, one tool house hunters rely on without hesitation is so simple they probably don’t even think about it. Online sites and search engines are incredibly valuable and by far are the leading tools in searching for homes. Classified ads may be tried and true, but often require searchers to make a phone inquiry to learn the address in question. But there is a low-demand, high-yield, unequivocal property search aid that gets buyers interested: the good ol’ frontyard ‘For Sale’ sign. 
It may seem like an awfully old-fashioned marketing method, but that sign … (0 comments)
