Real Estate Agent - Atlanta Communities - 303302
Blind offers are very common in the Atlanta market these days. These offers come from investors or from investment companies and are called blind because they offer to buy without seeing the home first. They plan is to own the home for rental.Several years ago these type offers presented special ...
I know this challenge is about our area where we live, but I spent many years growing up not far from the Atlanta area in North Carolina. I still consider this state my home even though I have not lived there in years. This past week my wife and I spent two days roaming on the Blue Ridge Parkway,...
When real estate transactions occur, most times money is put up to show the buyer is earnest in their intent to buy. Usually this money will be returned to the buyer if they decide to terminate their contract before their due diligence, or free look time period runs out. If the buyer continues wi...
I look at monthly statistics for the town I live in and am always amazed at what they tell me. From the information presented above it is very clear that we have very little inventory, hence the .9 month supply. Looking back at July numbers the Days on Market increased by 1 from 5 to 6. I wonder ...

There was also plenty of inventory for buyers to choose from and unicorns were plentiful.Yesterda...
I have an investor who buys, fixes up, and resells homes. We were talking the other day before we listed and he was telling me he remove a wall in his latest venture. He does a really nice job on his renovations, but I was a bit worried. He said he also added a 4th bedroom.So, when I went to do l...
Yesterday I had the fun of stopping at my local Ford dealer to ask about the backup camera on my 2020 Explorer. It seems to be working about half the time. I walked over to a young lady and asked her about the issue. It seems that the 2020 Fords all have this issue and there are 60,000 backup cam...
The current real estate market can only be described as crazy. I showed a home last week to a couple that was priced at $545,000. It had scratched up floors, bad dog smell, very loud air conditioner, and some cosmetic issues. Nevertheless, my clients made an offer. We offered $550,000. The listin...
