The gated community of Bent Tree, Georgia is located 5 miles east of Jasper off of IH 575/515.  The community offers 18 holes of golf, 4 outdoor tennis courts, two indoor courts, a horse riding stable and a 100+/- acre lake for boating. They also have 2 outdoor swimming pools and a dog park and hiking trails. The homes in the community range from getaway cabins to luxurious homes high a top its many mountain tops.  You can see Atlanta, Stone and Kennesaw mountains from some of these mountain top homes! (on a clear day!) There are about 100 miles of paved roads in the community, and thankfully NO gravel or dirt roads that we in the mountains tend to end up in during rain storms! Bent Tree is a non-debt community…meaning that all amenities must be self-supporting with the community not in...

Jasper Georgia is a quiet great place to live. jasper homes average, outside of the gated communities,  150,000. So you can live on an acre or more in at least a 3 bedroom 2 bath with out breaking the bank. "Downtown Jasper" , I am an ex NYC kid, so I am a bit of a downtown snob, is growing with new and different restaurants. We are experiencing a growth in business and shops. All of these indicators tell me that Jasper is poised for growth .  What makes Jasper unique is that it is called the First Mountain City. We are at the start of the Smoky Mountains that change names along the way as the run to Maine. So Jasper is county and beautiful but offers easy access to Atlanta. There are medical facilities along with a regional hospital in Jasper. We have an airport as well. So you can fly...

So many of us cast the net of marketing wide and get many different questions. One that I get a lot is are you the listing agent ? Can you help me find the listing agent ? I ask them why. Well ,(in the case of the foreclosure) they represent the bank. Why in the world I think would you want to deal with the bank directly. I do listings. When I am lucky enough to get a buyer interested in one of my listings then I am doing a designated agent. Why do people think they will get a better deal if they work with a bank or seller directly? The pat answer is the commission will be saved on the buyers agent side. But guess what, that is already factored in to the price. So the listing agent will do better or the seller will save money. Will you get a deal ? I HAVE YET TO SEE IT HAPPEN. In fact w...

You have to take Atlanta out of the equation when you are talking about the North Georgia Mountains. Here is what we are seeing. Homes sales are up. I am even getting stuck behind cement trucks again, which means new construction. Prices in our area are about 4 to 5 percent higher than they were last year. Interest rates remain low and inventory is good. Forget about foreclosures and short sales. Regular homes for sale are priced to sell. In our mountains you can have USDA loans, FHA loans, VA loans as well as conventional. If you are now looking for a mountain retreat, or if you are moving here because of a job transer call us today at 706 579 1098. Visit us on line at www.allmountainrealty.com.

The Old Fashioned Barber Shop is going strong in Jasper Ga. Founder Mary Caraway has made the shop one of the most popular spots in town. The shop features large old time barber chairs, a coffee pot that is always full, and most importantly a place to go for a great hair cut. Town news is often exchanged among the many folks waiting to get their hair cut. This makes the Old Fashioned Barber Shop a real step back in time. And, in my opinion, it is a great thing.     The Three Barbers from Left to Right, are Misty, Mary, and Christie. The great news about this shop is even though it is very popular all three Barbers give great hair cuts so waiting time can be kept to a minimum. So the big question is , How did my hair cut turn out? Well we have the before:  Yes I had to hide in the forest...

If you are traveling in Georgia or planning to DONT. The Feds have declared the state a disaster area. The State is in a state of emergency. The weather is really really bad.  So what does that mean. South of Atlanta as far as Macon there is ice falling. North of Atlanta and in the mountains there is snow falling. I am from the northeast but no one unless you have a dog sled can drive on ice.As for the snow with 4 wheel drive you can go on flat ground. But the mountains are not flat. So you start down a hill and start to go faster. This is bad. But you cannot hit the brakes because you will start to slide. This is equally bad. Bottom line Stay put. I will have some great pictures to post when I get off my mountain.

So what is the hardest thing for a buyer to do in today's real estate market ? Some would say it is finding the right agent. I think with all the online tools out there and web sites this is important but not major. Some might say finding the right priced home. In some markets this may be an issue but not so much here and in many other markets. Some might say finding a home that works for them. Not that either, The answer is financing. When the bank says show me the money you had better be able to do show. Not only do you have to show the money but you need to show how you got, how youe spend it, how you save it , and maybe even some other things a lender might find interesting. Bless you if you are self employed because you really will have to show them the money. This weeks Mountain R...

Real Estate folks are often not thought of as "professionals." Maybe this comes from Glen Gary Glen Ross.  Or maybe they think of Charlie's Mother on  2 and 1/2 men. I am sure you can come up with another whole host of reasons for why the public some times has a low opinion of us. So it is when a friend came to us and said, "I want to be a Real Estate agent." We had a long discussion about marketing and branding and the work involved. "Yes", he said, " this is what I want to do." I thought this is great. So I directed him to his options and he decided to take the on line course for pre-license. After about  one session with the internet he came to me and said, " This is a lot to learn." By session 3 he was looking at me and asking, "did you have to learn all this ?" The question implied...

The North Georgia Mountains are experiencing part of the housing market rebound. Prices are up about 8 percent in many of our mountain counties. Inventory in the under 200,000 category is Very Very tight. Homes appear and go under contract really quickly. Thankfully the foreclosure market is shrinking. Last year at this time we had 60-90 homes in foreclosure in the market area.  Now we have 15. All indicators are that the market is recovering. Now we are not moving at the pace of Atlanta or other areas in the country. But then our rate of slippage was not as steep either. The notable exceptions are the great communities of Big Canoe and Bent Tree. Neither of these communities, while experiencing some bounce back, are  bouncing back at the rate seen in the surrounding areas. I believe th...

The Mountain Real Estate report is heard through out the North Georgia Mountains on WYYZ Radio  Jasper. Also it is streamed on line and store on our web site. This weeks show is dedicated to buyers. The focus is on what can go wrong for a buyer which will cause him or her not to get a loan. A blog by Kathy Sheehan was the inspiration for this show. In todays tough lending market it is important to know what you should not be doing when you are home shopping. It is also important to know what you should be doing. A link to the show is provided below or you can click the icon at the bottom of this post. Looking to buy ? You might want to listen to this show .     http://allmountainrealty.com/shows/DW_B0494.mp3

This is the weekend of Jasper ArtFest, which is always held in the third weekend of April in Jasper, GA. Featured this year on Saturday will be a "Plein Air Paintout", where competing artists will choose their favorite paint medium, select a subject, and complete a painting between 8 AM and 4 PM on Saturday. They will submit their work at the end of the day to be judged by the public in a people's choice competition for prize money. The public is invited to observe them actually creating the work along Main Street. Come and vote for your favorite artist. There is no admission to attend either the Paint Out or Jasper ArtFest. Go to JasperArtFest.org for more information.

For those of you in the area there is no better place to sit relax and get a quality hair cut than the Old Fashioned Barber shop in Jasper Georgia. Hey even if you are in Canton it is worth a trip ! The 4 barbers, Mary, Misty, Crystal and Heather all do great work. This is important. Because no matter who is available at the time you are in for a quality hair cut. The conversation is good and the atmosphere great. I actually enjoy seeing my hair get long so that I can have an excuse to sit in a large old time barber chair and relax. The shoulder back massage at the end with the machines they use is a perfect way to end the experience . Check out my before and after pictures below. They do great work at the Old Fashioned Barber shop on Church Street in Jasper.   Before                   ...

The Real Estate Technology show known as ReTech South or RETSO is coming to Atlanta April 4 and 5. This show is THE premier show for those who want to work with today's technology and apply it to their business. I have been to every RETSO show since the start . So this is RETSO 6 for me. Here is why I will be there. The first RETSO I went to I left with a Head ache and some great ideas. I had no idea what to expect. What I got were a bunch of great ideas and made some good contacts. I learned how to apply technology to my business.  Over the next 5 RETSO's I learned how to use technology and filter out stuff that was not that important. Last year I even won an ipad 2 ( yes I am that guy) If you are overwhelmed by all the technology, don't know where to spend your time and money, then yo...

  We are counting down to Jasper ArtFest 2013, and there are only a few weeks left!   It’s hard to believe that we are into the Third Annual Jasper ArtFest, when it seems like just yesterday we had an idea to try a downtown art festival. It has been a somewhat surprising success from day one. Last year we had no luck with the weather, but managed to have a good turnout of artists and guests anyway.   As always, we are trying a couple of new things this year to make it even better.   Local artist Bob Jorns is organizing a plein aire art competition this year, featuring artists around the festival site actually painting the outdoors. For those not familiar with plein aire, it is a French expression meaning "in the open air”. Artists will complete their work during an allotted time on Sat...

  Jasper, GA is striving to become the most popular location in the North Georgia Mountains to come and enjoy the many talents of artists that both live here and visit here. The new slogan "Where the Mountains and the Fun Begin!" couldn't be more accurate to describe this community. This year will be the third edition of Jasper ArtFest, to be held on April 20-21. ArtFest is a juried show with a "fair" type scene with display booths and art for sale right down Main Street. In addition to all art mediums, there will be music, a Plein Aire art competition and sale, performing arts, and all types of novelty foods. Don't feel like shaved ice that day? Try visiting one of our award winning restaurants for a relaxed meal. Show hours are 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, and 10 AM to 4 PM on Sunday. ...

If you are buying in 2013 here are some things that are happening now . So get your mind ready    1 If you are buying a foreclosure do not start ouot by thinking, "The bank should be happy to take..." The Bank is not happy to take. In fact as 2012 progressed we saw an increased amount of multiple offer situations on foreclosures. Many going for more than asking. Are there still great deals? Yes. But you need to be realistic. 2 If your credit score is low or your income to debt ratio high you are not going to get a loan. It gets to be that simple today.When lenders are loaning under 4% they are going to be picky. So make it a point to get your scores up and your debt down It is an incredibly great time to buy . Don't let it pass you by   If you are selling in 2013, get your mind ready. D...
