cumming ga: Thoughts on Fresh vs Saltwater Pools When Selling a Home - 02/03/17 06:30 AM
Riddle: What do saltwater pools and saltwater aquariums have in common?
Answer: Water. That’s about all. 
 
When some house hunters see “saltwater pool” in Cumming, GA listings, the first thing apt to come to mind is that last trip to the ocean seashore or swaying palm trees—or perhaps some NatGeo TV show about endangered species on the Great Barrier reef.   Visions of having their own playful pet dolphin in the backyard might flit through their consciousness before the practical questions begin to intrude— like having to rinse salt off after every dip, worrying about salt spray wrecking the lawn. 
Ultimately, the … (0 comments)

cumming ga: Electrical Wires Must Be Protected - 01/09/17 07:36 AM
Gayle Barton – South Forsyth Real Estate, Cumming GA – (404) 710-0204  
I wanted to share this article with you today from professional home inspector, Jay Markanich.  Jay points out one very good reason why a new construction home buyer should always consider a step by step inspection throughout the building process. 
 
Keep in mind, this is just one example of what can be hiding behind those beautiful new construction walls!  My clients know that a professional home inspection through each step of the new construction building process is something I strongly recommend. Okay, I'll admit it's something that I harp … (0 comments)

cumming ga: Why You Should Use Realtor Recommended Service Providers - 01/03/17 12:22 PM
I’m supposed to be at a closing right now, but it ain’t gonna happen!
When buying a new home there are many service providers you will choose to assist you.  Of course the first will be your Realtor, but you will also need the services of a lender and closing attorney/title office among others.
I strongly recommend that you request a referral for these services from your Realtor rather than using a friend or choosing the “lowest bidder”.   Your agent has day-to-day experience with these professionals and knows who can get the job done and who can turn your transaction into a real … (1 comments)

cumming ga: Home Seller Warning - Don’t Let This Happen To You - 09/28/16 04:09 AM
I passed this sign in my Forsyth County neighborhood today and was so outraged that I stopped to take a picture of it. I can’t imagine any home seller settling for this lack of professionalism from the real estate agent they are paying to market their property.   It could be that the seller is working with a friend or family member and does not want to be seen as “difficult”, but more than likely they simply do not know that they have a right to expect more.
 
MARKETING MATTERS!   Unfortunately, many sellers do not understand the pivotal role professional marketing plays in getting their … (2 comments)

The desire to own a home is a fundamental part of many families’ plans for living in Cumming, GA, but there are a number of factors to take into account, especially over the life of the home. One aspect of home ownership that can come as a surprise is paying a higher than expected property tax bill.

cumming ga: My Cumming GA Homebuyers Were Featured in the AJC - 03/09/15 04:20 AM
 
I loved opening up the AJC Homefinder section and seeing my buyers featured there!
 
This was a fun couple to work with as they were transferring in from North Carolina and not at all familiar with our area. The first step was to find out what was important to them as this area provides everything from new construction (smaller lots and fewer trees… but BRAND NEW!) to mature neighborhoods with large lots tons of trees but homes that might require a bit of updating.
 
I sent over a huge list of properties that ran the gambit and allowed … (0 comments)

Part 3 of my series, “Don’t Make These Home Seller Mistakes” (view chart) discusses making your home available to show in the South Forsyth real estate market.
 
The South Forsyth real estate market is very competitive so making it easy for buyers to see your home will definitely help you get it sold faster.  Every deterrent (no lock box, appointment required, etc…) reduces the number of opportunities for a buyer to see your home.
 
TRUTH #1 - Make it EASY to show your home! If you make it too difficult many agents will just stop trying.

Cracker Barrel is Coming to Cumming!  
Venture Construction, a Norcross-based company, finalized its permits on September 23rd, 2011 and had the current buildings demolished by September 30th so it looks like rumor has become fact!
