 Fayetteville County Market Update:The data analysis above is from the Georgia MLS as of 10/9/2021 and is just for the Fayetteville City limits.  The main take away from this is that of the houses that are selling (Even in the most extreme markets you have houses that don't sell at all, and you've probably heard the term "on the market or in the market"?  This is the "In the market" houses).  We see that just after the pandemic hit there was a lull in listings and sales and then a spike we saw summer before last.  Month of housing supply means that at the current rate how long does it take to sell through the housing inventory (if you think of a pond, water is always flowing in and flowing out, houses float on the incoming water and then as they sell exit with the outflowing stream.  Th...

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 with the contract, this money will go towrds the purchase of the home.This is all well and good if everything happens as it should. But what happens if the buyer does not deposit the earnest money as required by the contract within the time limits given? Sellers get very nervous and the agents send around paperwork notifying everyone of the delay. Usually that takes care of the problem and the earnest money gets deposited, albeit late.Now the big problem. What happens if the earnest money does not...

Oak Mountain is a golf club  surrounded by a beautiful planned community in Carrollton Georgia, located about 45 to the West of Atlanta and near the Alabama line.  Carrollton's population is about 30,000 people in the city proper incorporated in 1829, home to the University of West Georgia and was named after Charles Carroll of the town, who was the last signer of the Declaration of Independence alive at the time.The golf club itself https://www.oakmountainchampionshipgolf.com/  is a semi private/ public course with reasonable fees.  Market data for homes in the area suggest different price points for home sizes and locations.  Homes right on the golf course or the water with larger footprints will obviously be selling for more, where as the smaller homes set further out in surrounding ...

In the West Georgia, South West Metro Atlanta area, there have been several new parks added in the past decade.  Chattahoochee Bend State Park in Coweta County, and Little Tallapoosa Park, a Carroll County park and it opened in 2012.  The name of this park is from the Little Tallapoosa River that stretches from the headwaters made up of branches of mud Creek, Sweetwater Creek (from the lake at Sweetwater State Park Near Douglasville GA), Guthard's Creek clear up around Lithia Springs and Austell Georgia, heading South West into Alabama where it eventually runs into Lake Wedowee (aka: R. L. Harris Reservoir) in Randolf County Alabama.    Little Tallapoosa Park is on 330 acres, offering almost 10 miles of nature trails with almost 3 miles of paved.  It has two fishing ponds, pavilions, pi...

It's difficult to define in absolute terms where Braelinn begins and where it ends.  The area is located roughly south of Lake Peachtree across and through the Braelinn Golf Course https://club.clubcorp.com/Clubs/The-Clubs-of-Peachtree-City-and-Newnan South to Publix near the intersection of Redwine Rd. and Joel Cowan Parkway.  It's a beautiful development in this city of just under 40,000 people about half an hour away from Atlanta's Massive International Airport.  Homes have access to more than 100 miles of golf paths (apart from the actual golf course) for alternative transportation anywhere in town pretty much and even extending South to Senoia.  Homes may also be right on the green with expansive open views, or right on the lake in one of a handful of lakes in the areaAs of 9/20/21...

Peachtree City is located in Fayette County between Newnan to the East, Atlanta & Tyrone to the North, Senoia to the South and Fayetteville to the West.  The current population is more than 6 times what it was back in the 80's and it continued to explode in growth through the 90's and early 2000's to it's present population of around 37,000.  Some may disagree with my analysis on amount of cars on the roads, but during my visit today I was driving in after school rush hour and traffic really wasn't an obstacle at all, in fact I marveled at how smoothly it flowed.  I think what really makes Newnan-Peachtree City-Senoia area attractive as part of the metro Atlanta area, is it's lack of extreme congestion that you might find in other parts of the metro.  Moreover the city is really known f...

About Summer Grove:  This is my all time favorite development in the area, although it's a bit like having to pick your favorite children or favorite of your close friends; you love them all, and Newnan-Peachtree City area has no shortage of beautiful homes or developments.  Summer Grove is on nearly 2,500 acres, includes something around 30 or so neighborhood distinctive style, almost like a bunch of districts all incorporated into one big place, if that makes sense?  The roads are well maintained with many divided Boulevard areas making getting to and from anywhere a breeze. Amenities are almost unending including a beautiful 18-hole golf course designed to offer a large amount of homes with views of the greens and fairways.  You'll also find a bunch of well taken care of parks with k...

Locally Owned and Operated Coffee Shops like Percolate Coffee and Boutigue seem to have so much uniqueness about them that you just don't find in a chain store, that's why two best friends decided to go into business this past year to create an independent coffee house on the East side of Newnan.  Located at Summer grove's Market Square, Percolate Coffee and Boutique, 21 Market Square Way, Suite 102, Newnan Ga, 30265 opened up with a goal in mind to provide a welcoming atmosphere for folks to enjoy a terrific coffee drink, maybe a muffin or two and hang out. When I frequent a coffee house, I like to know where the beans come from and a little about the roaster.  Aundrea (one of the owner's) said that they get their coffee from an in State Coffee Roaster, Jumpin Goat Coffee.  First off, ...

Not everyone has such a gem right in their back yard practically, and yet right here in Peachtree City at the county line is one of the area's most beautiful recreation areas.  The trail at Line Creek Nature Area is the main attraction ad begins from the Northern trail head in an hardwood forested area heading towards the creek from the parking area towards granite outcroppings, and even some areas where the creak runs fairly swift over the rocks creating a pleasant sound as you walk nearby.  The trail bordered by some ferns, various ivy like plants and azaleas.  This hike is a pleasant one of a little over a mile each direction.  At the Northern part of the park, you will encounter a bit more terrain including rocks, and tree roots.  I'd recommend good outdoor hiking shoes for this are...

Located on Whitewater Creek, a few miles to the Northwest of Senoia Georgia is Starr's Mill and the Starr's Mil Park.  It was named after Hilliard Starr who owned the mill back in the 1800's.  Many will recognize the mill from scenes in "Sweet Home Alabama".The original structure burned down and the one you see now was built in 1907.  Starr's Mill Had a cotton gin and an electric generator powering nearby Senoia.  Most mills of the time used a water wheel whereas this one used a turbine to grind up corn and cut wood in the sawmill.The park itself is beautiful, and offers places to park, with pick nick tables, grassy areas, and a trail along the reservoir pictured above, part of Whitewater Creek.A few miles to the Southwest of Starr's Mill is downtown Senoia Georgia, featuring shops, res...
