The 48th annual masters ski tournament is the place where the top water skiers in the world congregate to show of their skills.  This year has been no different.  We had beautiful weather with temps in the low 80s and sunshine all around. Located only 30 miles north of Columbus - Callaway Gardens is a great place to hang out year round.  Fantasy in Lights at Christmas - Azaleas in Spring - Masters Ski tournament on Memorial day - 4th of July on the beach with live beach music - and the Hot Air Balloon Festival in the Fall.   A season pass costing only about $100 buys a lot of fun!!  Search the Columbus Ga MLS or Find a Home at Fort Benning

The City Finance Department finished studying the Consolidated Government's Landfill Accounts and wants permission to write off  1.3 million dollars.  This is the amount of money considered uncollectable from the period of 1997 until 2004.  Very nice for somebody!  Since 2004 the city has also been unable to collect  revenue in the amount of nearly $800,000.00.  from uncollected tickets and landfill fees that have exceeded the statute of limitations. Total adjustments that are in order for taxpayers amount to 2 million dollars and some change.  Thank you City Finance Department for sleeping through the late nineties and the beginning of the millenium!Realtor, Columbus Ga

The downtown area of Columbus is going thru a revitilazation with street scapes along Broadway and the Columbus State University moving the Arts and Music departments downtown.  We love to go downtown and sit outside with a cup of coffee or some other beverage and just relax.  We also eat downtown at about once a week at somewhere like the Cannon Brewery which is an old brick foundry which they have remodeled into a fun restaurant.  If we have time we can take a walk down the riverwalk along the Chattahoochee, take in a play at the Springer Opera House or go to a concert at the Rivercenter.  It is a great area to hang out!                Columbus Ga Real Estate and Fort Benning Realtors

The past few years have been a boom for business growth in Columbus.    One area that is amazing to me is the Columbus Park Crossing area.     That area has exploded with restaurants, movie theaters and shopping.  Just in the past couple of months we have gotten a new super Walmart and Sams locating in one section.  A Kohls, Dicks Sporting Goods, Mens Warehouse, and several other stores in another section.   A 15 plex theater with stadium seating.   13 new restaurants have located just in the Columbus Park area with several in other areas as well and more under construction.   It is an exciting time in Columbus and is spilling over into Phenix City as well with the anouncement of a new Char Broil Steakhouse under construction in Phenix City.  Columbus and the surrounding areas are a gre...

What is the difference between MLS searches.   Ease of use!  When searching properties in an area you will want to easily identify areas, schools, prices and other factors that influence your decision.  Mapping is becoming essential to finding the homes you are interested in.  When moving to an area you need the visual reassurance of the home locations.  You don't know the area so you have no way to know what area a subdivision is in.   Look for an MLS search that offers a mapping tool!Schools are very important to the purchase of your home - even if you don't have children.  It will affect you now and it will effect the resale value of your home.  You should be able to toggle from your MLS search to a tool that tells you more about area schools.  Lots of pictures.  Many of the homes on...

The Chattahoochee River divides Columbus Ga from Phenix City AL.  It is absolutely gorgeous at Christmas time.  We had have been to the River Club twice in the last week which obviously overlooks the river.  The Christmas lights on both sides of the river just make you feel warm inside.  We love the downtown area and especially the River.  This is just one of the reasons we love living and selling Real Estate in Columbus GA.

2007 may be the best year ever for Real Estate!  I already hear the groans so let me explain why I think so.1) Mortgage rates are great at about 6% for a 30 year loan and it looks like they are stable.  If you check the rates over the last 25 years it is hard to argue with this fact.   25 years ago rates were 18.62%!!2) Home Sellers are willing to make a deal! Sellers in 2006 have been in denial but are now waking up to the fact that they must price their home right and be willing to pay closing costs to move their home!  3) The economy is good!  Unemployment rates are down, GNP is up, and the wealth is unreal.4)Buyers have been waiting on the sidelines but now realize they can get a good deal on a home!  The truth is they are right.  5)There is a lot of inventory available for the buye...
