talking rock creek resorts: The Canary in the Coal Mine - 03/06/09 05:38 AM
In 1995 Barings Bank Collapsed. It was the Oldest Merchant Bank in England founded in 1762. It was nick named the Queens bank. The collapse was caused by one man trading electronically.
This collapse was the Canary in the coal mine. It highlighted a component of the age we live in. 1's and 0's travel really quickly around the electronic world. In a matter of minutes billions of dollars can be traded. But we did not learn from this collapse. Instead in 2000 we passed the commodities act that re-legalized practices that were made illegal in the early 20Th century because … (1 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: Confused over the bail out - 10/07/08 12:29 AM
Recent events have left some folks confused over the bail out. They thought , hey of we pas this bill things will get better. So why is the market down and doom and gloom economic number coming from every where ?
The politicians did a good job with this bill in the end. The first time it died. In the end they said it was good for main Street. By extension you thought that is you and me. But the bill was really meant to solve a crisis in the capital markets. I do not work in those markets . Most … (5 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: Ball Ground Georgia Part 1 - 09/06/08 08:55 AM
Ball Ground is a small town in Cherokee County . It is at the foothills of the mountains. Many people consider this tiny town, No traffic lights, unlike Jasper, to be the new up and coming area. The Name Ball Ground is unique. It is unclear whether it is derived from Battle Ground, as this was the site of a famous battle between the Creeks and the Cherokees. Or Ball Ground as it was the site of many ball games played by the Native Americans.  This first pictures shows the flat and green areas that are Ball Ground. The Etowah River … (0 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: What's Really Important ! - 08/04/08 12:52 AM
There have been a ton of blogs about the new housing bill. After all there should be as this is a real estate oriented network. There are volumes of blogs about government bail outs taxers etc etc. Basically I read a bunch of stuff that is anti- bailout. I am generally anti- Bail out too. But there is one bail out NO ONE IS BLOGGING ABOUT.
On Feb 9 2009 all of us will convert to digital TV. If you do not have digital TV you need a box. You can get a coupon and a bail out for the box. … (6 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: The New Start (Spring) - 03/24/08 03:58 AM
It is Spring (officially) in the mountains. Friday we had 70 degree temperature. Today looking out my window we have snow flurries. If that isn't Spring I don't know what is. But this leads me to write a bit about the North Georgia Mountains.
The common misconceptions about Georgia are, It is flat , and it is hot. This is because many experience Atlanta in the summer, or drive through Georgia on I 95. In both cases it is hot and on I-95 really flat. But there are mountains in Georgia.. I am at 2500 feet. You can be as high as … (2 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: Realestate outlook 2008 North Georgia communities - 02/07/08 11:30 PM
As Johnny Carson would have done, I am putting on the Swami hat and saying the Answer is...
Big Canoe and Benttree will have a a mixed year. For that matter gated communities in general will have a mixed year. Consumers will look more for value. In the past consumers compared prices from where they were coming from to where they were going to. In a lot of cases the North Georgia Mountains offered  a less expensive life style. Consumers now instead of buying into that are looking at the value they get vis a vis other communities. New gated communities have … (0 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: Hindsight is 20/20. It Should have been done this way - 01/18/08 07:04 AM
I read a Blog this morning by Jay Beckingham in South Florida. Basically he was talking about the 2 types of Sub prime borrowers. Type 1 borrowed, had fun, played, and went broke. Type 2 borrowed, fixed their credit, saved money, was good, and went broke. In the end Type 2 could not refinance because their equity was not there as values decreased.
Suddenly a thought occurred to me reading his blog. When you go to the store and buy something and get a guarantee, if things do not work out you have recourse. In the case of sub prime., the … (2 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: I need to ask for More !!! - 01/17/08 03:27 AM
I posted a blog with pictures for the first time the other day called Winter in the Mountains. Some of the responses I got asked about snow. Now wouldn't you know it. Here I am a couple of days later socked in with snow and some ice. Linda Carrig also wrote a blog about the snow today.
This leads me to believe I should have written a blog asking for more business or at least 6 numbers for a Lottery ticket. So for those of you who asked here goes. Yes we did have snow last night in the Atlanta and Northern … (4 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: Winter in The Mountains - 01/14/08 08:09 AM
I am a wordy cuss so with a little help from Rick I thought I would let the images do the talking.
When you look out into the mountains the leaves are down. But the sky is crisp and blue. This is some of the best time to be in the mountains. You can see the land and what is around you. You are not masked by the foliage.
Some times it happens that instead of Flowers on tress you get a frost. The beauty of the North Georgia Mountains are that the winters are pretty, as opposed to harsh. Walking around and … (7 comments)

talking rock creek resorts: Big Canoe, Benttree, Talking Rock Creek Resorts, Lake Arrowhead in 2008 - 01/04/08 03:22 PM
A big question here in the mountains is how will the gated communities do in 2008. Typically the gated communities have amenities and homes are priced higher than their surrounding competition. The gated communities often draw  buyers from outside the area as well as outside the State.
So number one the prices will be higher. In a tight market this will have some effect.
We draw from outside the State so we are effected by markets, for good or bad, in other States.
Amenities attract people and retiring baby boomers do not want to sit around. Golf, Tennis, swimming, hiking, and boating will draw.

talking rock creek resorts: As the Year winds down - 11/18/07 11:17 PM
Yes 2007 is winding down. It certainly has been an eventful year. Not all the events were good ! At this time as things slow a bit and I go out to split wood  I use this time to think about business. There are 2 things I think about. 1. 2007 and 2. 2008
For 2007 I think about what worked and what didn't. How did I track my year? Was I able to make corrections in my plans? How did the services I bought pan out? For me starting All Mountain Realty was the big event in the year.
For 2008 I … (3 comments)
