Helen Ga has long been a destination for tourists and visitors from Atlanta, as well as other parts of the country. "How's the Market" questions are still the number 1 question I hear, but the number 1 question right now is "How's the Gas"? Better is the answer. However as Atlanta goes, so goes Helen. I mean by that, if the people in Atlanta can't get gas, they are not coming to Helen, even for Oktoberfest! Of course once the gas situation is solved, we may get some "leaf lookers".
Time changes many things, a few weeks ago we were all upset with the prices of gas, now we would gladly pay the price if we could find the gas. It is all demand and supply, not only does that drive the housing market, but the driving market also!
My calls and contact questions are changing. At one time the buyers were asking for "a good buy". Now they are asking for a "steal". My Sellers were asking for "a profit" now they are asking to "break even".
If you want to get a "steal" and are asking for a foreclosure, be sure you are ready to purchase. Most foreclosure companies will not look at offers from buyers who do not meet their qualifications to buy.
