atlanta real estate investor: Buyers Losing Money Fast - 11/14/13 07:31 PM
 
Buyers losing money fast!
I know a couple who were trying to buy a house in Gwinnett County that was overpriced.  
I am assuming the seller listed it for that price because if you calculate what Zillow shows they paid for it and you subtract the six years they've owned it, the home is still overpriced. However the buyer's agent made a big mistake.  She did not look into the value of the home before making a full price offer.  The seller agreed to the offer.  The buyer proceeds to spend $300 on an inspection then another $400 on … (17 comments)

atlanta real estate investor: Landlocked In Atlanta Georgia - 11/04/13 11:48 AM
 

Landlocked in Atlanta Georgia?
 
Landlocked is a term that is sometimes  erroneously applied in real estate referring to a seller wanting to move on but just can't sell their existing home in order to raise money needed to put towards another home. 
The new home could be one that's a step up the property ladder or a step down for folks needing to downsize.

Another correct application of the term "landlocked" applies to the following actual example.

Whether you are a real estate investor or a realtor you must be noticing a change in property sellers’ attitudes in the last year or so since the housing recovery started to take roots?
