5 Weekend Getaways from Atlanta

5 Weekend Getaways from Atlanta

I just got back from spending the weekend in Savannah.  I love Savannah and typically visit a couple times per year. That got me thinking, what other must-visits are there for Atlanta based folks. These are all within about a half days drive of Atlanta. Savannah, GA – home to the largest National Historic Landmark District in the country.  Spanish moss on low growing oaks, parks galore, haunted... [Read more]

Interactive Crime Map

Interactive Crime Map

Trulia recently launched a beta version of crime maps. They use a heatmap to track crimes and it makes for some very interesting reading. I think this is a great tool for potential home buyers. The stats seem to run 30-45 days behind but the heat colors are indicative of patterns and typically that is what my buyers are interested in seeing. It is interactive and you can zoom in and see details about... [Read more]

Real Estate Investing Opportunities

A survey recently released by move.com shows that in the upcoming months, real estate investors are more likely to throw their hats into the buying ring than typical buyers. The survey also states that investors are most likely to spend their dollars in their own cities.

Multiple Offer Situations

Multiple Offer Situations

Ka Pow! Boom! Bang! Twice in the last week I have had two different buyers that have made offers and run into multiple offer situations. It was not too long ago that we regularly encountered multiple offers, however, lately that has been a rarity. In these cases, both happened to be on bank-owned, Freddie and Fannie Mae owned properties.  Both of these were in ‘hot’ locations. One had... [Read more]

Ormewood Park / QT controversy

Ormewood Park / QT controversy

On Saturday an Ormewood Park resident stood on the corner of Ormewood and Woodland roads handing out information on the proposed building of a QuikTrip gas station. The proposed gas station would be located adjacent to the Little Azios where the run-down Jiffy Grocery is currently located.  I love the idea of having a convenience like QT close by, however, I have been dismayed by several pieces of... [Read more]
