real estate market: METRO ATLANTA - Housing Market Really Improving? - 10/25/11 04:07 AM
A recent article out by Rismedia indicates there are a few indicators showing there is some improvement in our housing market - although regionally.
15% increase in September housing starts Increase in mortgage applications I think it would be safe to say, with regards to our local Metro Atlanta market, housing prices are beginning to stabilize thus taking us out of the "declining market" status.  Additionally, in some metro counties, we are beginning to see a gradual increase in new housing starts from some of the nationally recognized builders like Ryland Homes and Beazer Homes.  The markets that continue to struggle, … (0 comments)

real estate market: ATLANTA GA MARKET REPORT - February 2009 vs. February 2008 - 03/27/09 06:35 AM
Some good news to report on a national level:
USA Today reported a rise in home sales for February. And, according to an article by Walter Molony for Realtor.org, existing home sales rose 5.1 percent nationally (Existing Home Sales Rise in February; March 23, 2009). While Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist reports  first time home buyers account for HALF of all home sales in February. And, much of that has to do with the current First Time Home Buyer $8K Tax Credit passed by Congress recently. 
In the same article by Walter Molony: "In the South, existing-home sales rose 6.1 percent to an annual … (0 comments)

real estate market: "The Smorgasbord of Choice" - 12/19/08 03:49 AM
 
Baby it's cold outside! And, many would say the same for the 2008 Atlanta real estate market.  The 2008 real estate market will have its own place in history....and, our memories.  But now it is time to put 2008 up on a shelf and look forward, with optimism, to 2009. 
If you are buyer or a seller and you are trying to read the crystal ball to determine when is the best time to buy or sell, here are some predictions from the CEO of Prudential GA Realty (this was also shared in my earlier post Atlanta Market, October, 2008 Recap).

real estate market: OUCH!!! STRADDLING THE FENCE MIGHT HURT MORE THAN YOU THINK! - 06/11/08 03:02 PM
The consensus is pretty much the same across the board...worst housing market since the mid-70's; and, longer lasting.  Looking back over years past, current housing prices are at 2002 and 2003 levels nationally. If you have listened to the media you would want to bury your head in the sand and wait for "better" days.
For Atlanta, the writing was on the wall in 2007. As the year progressed, we all saw the housing market slow. And, foreclosures currently continue to dominate the Atlanta market. So where does this take us? Well, if you are a pessimist you would find this really bad news. However, … (1 comments)

real estate market: IT'S CHERRY PICKING SEASON!! - 04/25/08 03:22 AM
CHERRY PICKING SEASON

What price is the right price? This is a challenging question in Suwanee's current real estate market - as well as all of metro Atlanta. The typical CMA (comparative market analysis) most agents like to use isn't going to get the job done if you want to have your home priced competitively - and - SELL! Many agents, like myself, are filling their arsenal with supporting data from many sources.
Let's be honest, even with what we hear from the media, come year-end when the analysis of the 2008 real estate market is compiled, despite the nay-sayers, … (3 comments)
