South Fulton Homes $225,000. Blue Sky, Sunshine Free!

By
Real Estate Agent with Solid Source Realty, Inc. 274930

October is a great month with the change of seasons, falling leaves turning beautiful colors, lots of festivals and celebrations, even an opportunity to scare a few folks and eat lots of candy. According to Northern Colorado real estate broker, Dick Greenberg, October is also photography month. Greenberg hosts an annual photography contest, so I'm going to enter this photo in the "Real Estate Exterior" category.

South Fulton homes with nice yards

This photo captures suburban America at its finest. Nestled in suburban Atlanta, The Retreat at Jones Mill subdivision is located just south of the city. I recently sold a home in this community. When I took the listing photos, I wanted to get a picture of the streetscape, so I snapped this one on my way out of the development.

 

I took just one shot, but lo and behold, didn't this first shot turn out to be the best shot? Look at the sky so blue and the yards so manicured! I did not have to retouch this photo at all or put it through any photo editors. It was perfect 'as is' and captured this subdivision well. I know it gave prospective buyers a good feel for the neighborhood and what might be their future home.

 

I was able to use this photo right off the press. Apparently it worked. We were under contract in 3 days!

What a beautiful neighborhood. It looks like it would make a great intro to another Mr. Roger's T.V. show for the little ones. The photograph is simply gorgeous! Your entry for Dick Greenberg's contest is perfect!!!

Cheryl~I LOVE this! The curve of the street, the sharp contrasting hues--MAVELOUS, DAHLING! Gotta love those perfect pictures that are just a one-shot wonder. 

This could have been a modern version of the perfection of the homes and street in Edward Scissorhands. Remember that?

Love the Edward Scissorhands comparison, Gayle Rich-Boxman! I hadn't thought of that one. Thanks for your insight.

Most of the time the sun and the sky do not cooperate for listing photos, Sharon Tara. But I was able to get this one at just the right time. I think this photo was taken late afternoon before sunset.
