Short Sales is almost a curse word in our market.  I recently attended the 5 Star Conf in Dallas and was real happy to hear what was being said about short sales.  The folks from Freddie Mac said they were putting their loans on the fast track.  The process should be completed in 30 days??? Now w...
I have finally got a handle on the short sale situation...I hope.  After trying to do this on my own I gave up.  I am nnow hooked up with a short sale company who actually get the sale negotiated and then they take the home over as a trust.  You then have to deal only with these folks who will pa...
Lake Lanier is looking so much better!  The recent rains have had a positive impact on our lake.  The storms that came with them are another matter.

It appears that the plans have been approved for the water park and hotel at Mary Alice Park.  The development company has signed a 50 year lease for the property and so it should be underway.  The folks that live on that end of the lake will see alot more traffic and probably more noise!! The Ci...
Interest rates rose this week and that is not a good thing. Cumming Ga real estate is being fueled by bargain hunters.  There are some good deals in the foreclosure market but competition for these is keeping the price up.   I hope buyers will get moving now!! It is the best time to pick up a bar...
