We all have dealt with the dreaded contingencies....  These days, we are aware that things are changing for home buyers and sellers and it's our job to assist in these real estate transactions.  In a market where short sales and ridiculously low priced foreclosures is not only "the norm", but possibly the deal of a lifetime....   We have to shoot straight and educate! One particular recent situation is an example of the rule change.  Buyer loves this house; he makes a very good offer on this short sale.   When reviewing the contract, the selling agent finds that an initial was not included on the lead paint disclosure, (this typically is only required for homes built prior to 1978).   The listing agent called and announced to the selling agent that the contract was not complete.  The po...

  The concept of Solar energy has been around since 1912, developed by a Philadelphia inventor named Frank Shuman.  These gigantic panels were used to produce steam to power, creating energy water pumps to be used in farming. Today, we are all aware of this plentiful resource found outside and many of us have wanted to know more. Solar energy provides homeowners with the ability to heat their own home, never having to worry about increases in oil cost.  This clean, renewable energy can also save you money in other ways!  Fannie Mae and many financing companies will lower interest rates by considering that saving money on your energy bill will mean more money for you to pay for your home.

Dahlonega, Georgia is known for beautiful mountains, friendly people and gold mines!  Dahlonega was the home of the first major gold strike in the United States and gold fever ignited a craze that brought 15,000 miners running for the North, GA hills.  Some 871 thousand ounces of gold from 1830 through 1959 and folks flocked from all over the country in search of their fair share of the wealth. Miners panned for gold in the beautiful Chestatee and Etowah rivers as well has mining the mountains.  Gold can still be panned for on tours given by and Consolidated Gold Mines.  Famous for "largest hard rock Gold Mine East of the Mississippi River" http://www.consolidatedgoldmine.com/aboutus.asp.

A couple of years ago I wrote about a subdivision in North Georgia, Greenwood Glen, located close to the beautiful town of Dahlonega.  I was working in this small and intimate neighborhood of custom built homes until the market hit a brick wall, and it was no longer financially viable to support the heavy costs involved in marketing a neighborhood. Yesterday I got a pleasant surprise when re-visiting Greenwood Glen to show property.  It seems that sales have been very slow but that is no surprise, what I did find surprising is that the current listings, which are all bank owned, are priced very similarly to our original pricing 2 yrs ago.  I feel good about this for one very good reason.  I sold a lot of homes 2 years ago in that neighborhood, to some very good people.  To know that the...
