Mableton is on the move and homes are still selling faster than ever. There is a value to delivering the best buyers to sellers and not just any old’ buyer like investors. Homebuyers who plan to live in their home as opposed to selling to an investor buyer are what Mableton needs right now to continue its march towards resurgence and greatness within and throughout its neighborhoods and communities. Strong communities start with owners who take a stand on where they own and where they live. Rooftops lead to retail, and retail leads to job opportunities and strong local services providers and communities to thrive for decades to come.
This property is being sold by homeowners who live in the home to another homeowner who will live in the home keeping homeownership strong in this community. Communities that do not have strong HOA's or have a ton of rental units tend to not be well taken care of. Out-of-town and out-of-state conglomerate owners have started to take over 35% of the housing stock in Atlanta, ripping away equity out of communities and sending it back to wall street investors after using the hedge funds they have borrowed and used like monopoly money to buy up homes, barely clean them out and slap tenants back into at exorbitant prices that are more per month than if those tenants purchased directly from owner-occupied owners.
As an advocate of Mableton and the surrounding areas, I implore you to encourage your friends, family, and acquaintances to hire local, sell local and invest local person to person, and bypass the corporations that offer cheap and fast (dirty) money for a quick sale in lieu of just doing a tiny bit of work to keep more of their own dollars when they sell and help people who are looking to live in our town as owners and not renters.
There is nothing wrong with being a renter but the long gold standard of getting your piece of the American pie through homeownership still stands strong and will over time. It is what our ancestors of all stripes fought for because they understood the value of land and land ownership as the cornerstone of growing wealth and prosperity.
