Most folks approaching the market are aware of tight inventories, high demand, and extremely low days on the market for move in ready, priced right homes.  A lot of people have heard about houses selling in just a few days following just a couple of days of showings and getting multiple offers ending up often times above asking price.  This has been the extreme seller's market that we have been in for the past several years.  Things may be about to change.  Interest rates at the time of this blog post have climbed even higher than the above chart and we are already seeing some important trend changes as a result. Although we are just half way through the month of May 2022, we see a marked departure from the overall month over month list price increases, and decrease in Sold prices for C...

About 5 years ago The Newnan Linc trail project began and has since progressed nicely to include a completed stretch from the Newnan court square through C.J. Smith Park, East through the woods and near a stream across Interstate 85 through some more woods near the Newnan Center and into Summergrove golf course and housing development.    A community benefits from a trail system in many ways.  First it's what is called a "linear park" providing park access across a wide area that may not otherwise have access to the recreational opportunities provided.  The trail also provides a nice alternative form of transportation, a means for exercise and obvious recreation activities, but also promote improved community health along with associated health care cost savings.  Another benefit is con...

I am an advocate for private ownership of homes.  When done right, investing in real estate makes a whole lot of sense for a number of reasons and will benefit you financially.  Today we see large investment firms, dot com corporations, and large outsiders buying up large numbers of homes all over the place and then charging an arm and a leg to rent them back out to the people.  Ownership of a handful of rental properties makes perfect sense and is a wise investment for private property owners, I want to see regular people like you and I own our own homes, see the home and community prosper and thrive.  I don't want to see everything owned by big corporations that aren't even here.  So that's how I feel about that.  Next is the discounting of real estate services.  While on the surface ...

Painting with oil has been something I've wanted to try for many years.  My earliest work with paint was at Palmetto High School in 12th grade art class but I only worked with acrylics.   A lot of folks think it's way to hard to paint in oil.  I've found that I love the medium.  First of all the paint doesn't dry as quickly and so it's easier to move around and blend.  It's also a bit more forgiving.   Located right on South Court Square in the heart of Newnan is this amazing gem called Corner Arts https://www.facebook.com/cornerarts.  Jenny, who is my awesome painting teacher (she offers classes weekly for anyone interested in exploring their artistic talents).  The shop features a wide variety of arts and crafts from local artisans including herself.  If you are ever at the Newnan Squ...

Coweta County Sigle Family New Construction January 2022Overview:  Nationally and locally new housing is being impacted by shortages of labor, and increasing supply costs.  For instance, lumber prices which peaked last year around this time at about $1,500.00, then dropping over the Summer have climbed back up over $1,000.00 in January and as of 2/2/22 are around $980.00, more than double what it had been prior to the surges of the past several years.  New housing numbers in markets all over the nation arguably have fallen drastically behind year over year over and above basic demand over the past decade and basic supply this year is no exception.  Another thing to keep in mind, is that without a healthy stock of new houses to meet the full demand, there is less available on the market ...

Snap shot Overview:  Newnan Georgia is part of the Greater Atlanta Metropolitan area located about 40 miles Southeast of Downtown Atlanta.  The city has a population of about 50,000 and Coweta County a little more than 150,000.  About two thirds of the dwellings are owned with about a third being rented.  Some forecast estimates suggest that Coweta County will grow to over 200,000 by 2030.  The main issues illustrating the fourth quarter market is a record low number of homes for sale, lower number of homes being sold, extremely low number of days on market particularly for the dialed in move in ready stock, sharply increasing prices across the board, and all of this at a time where record low interest rates continue along with record high demand.  4th Quarter Coweta County Market Snaps...
