Last week, the National Association of Realtors released June sales statistics.  On a national level, existing home sales increased 3.6% in June.  In the South, existing home sales increased 4.0%, but still down 3.7% over last June.  The national median home price was $181,800 which is 15.4% below June 2008.  In the South, the median home price was $163,200 down 11.9% from June 2008. 
The light at the end of the tunnel is that inventories are down .7 percent which represents a 9.4 month supply.  In other words, if another home was not listed, there would be enough homes to meet demand for 9.4 … (1 comments)

atlanta real estate: Five Tips for Obtaining Financing - 05/06/09 05:43 AM
The first-step in beginning a successful search for a new house is taking a hard, objective look at finances. Determining how much money you can dedicate to the purchase of your new house affects almost every aspect of buying a new home.  Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Credit Scores COUNT!  I know this may sound weird, but there was a time where your credit score did not impact your financing.  FHA loans were not even based on credit scores.  Now, most FHA financing requires a minimum 620 score.  The better your score the better rate and terms you … (0 comments)

atlanta real estate: Securing Vacant Properties - 05/06/09 05:40 AM

Check out this air conditioning unit that was vandalized.  Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence with vacant properties across all price points.  Criminals are stealing the copper and sometimes the entire unit.  They are even bold enough to break into the home and steal light fixtures, appliances, cabinets, countertops and whatever else they can get their hands on.  My advice is to place a cage over the air conditioner unit and make sure all windows and doors are covered...don't make it obvious that the property is vacant.  New blinds always help and become a selling feature of the home.  I would … (0 comments)
