Fairburn 30213 Rental Real Estate Fairburn is relatively stable market for rental real estate.  In reviewing the history of residential rental real estate in Fairburn GA, I have found three factors that I believe make Fairburn a better than average area for real estate investors to consider when purchasing investment properties.  First, there has been a 32% increase in the number of residential properties available for rental in Fairburn.  This volume increase is indicative of the growth that the city of Fairburn has experienced in the past few years. Fairburn 30213 Rental Real Estate The second factor that jumped out of the numbers is that there has been about a 10% dip in the average rental rate from 2007 to the present.  So if an landlord was collecting $1200 per month in rent in 200...

Real Estate in 30213 Fairburn The Merrywood Estates subdivision in Fairburn, GA, was hit hard by the current real estate market.  Values have dropped by as much as 59% in the last couple of years.  Homes that sold for $130,000 in 2003 are now appraising at $55,000.  These three bedroom, two bathroom ranch style homes represent an excellent bargain to the smart investor or first time home buyer.  Many buyers in the over 40 demographic complain about climbing stair and prefer a ranch style home to a two story for this simple reason.  The subdivision has easy access to Interstate 85, the Hartsfield Jackson International Airport and is less than 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta.

Fairburn GA 30213 - Fantastic foreclosures and great food! After a day of three showings and two BPOs, I decided to enjoy some of the best Mexican food available in metro Atlanta.  Downtown Fairburn 30213 is home to Taqueria Iztaccihuatl.  What makes the food so great is the homemade approach to every dish.  Freshly made chips and salsa made from great family recipes.  I enjoyed the vegetarian burrito.  The owner and chef loaded the burrito with beans, rice, bell peppers, cheese, avocado, cilantro and their unique blend of spices.  Absolutely delicious!  I encourage you to make a trip to this wonderful restaruant.  For more information call 770 964 9909.

Fighting Foreclosure with Cornbread  A Georgia woman hopes cornbread is the currency that will get her out of foreclosure. Beverly Davis says she paid $134,000 for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch in April of 2006 with “excellent credit and very little debt.” Little more than a year later, she lost her full-time city-government job and wound up taking part-time work. After a year, that job was scaled back. All the while, Ms. Davis says she was selling greeting cards and nail polish on the side. But that wasn’t enough to prevent foreclosure: She says she lost her Fairburn, Ga., home on March 2. She didn’t get mad. She got creative. The 48-year-old, who grew up in rural Georgia, started cooking with cornbread. Chicken potpie with a cornbread crust. Cornbread souffle. She’ll mail cornbr...

       We all have one thing in common: we like for people to agree with us. AT ALL TIMES. Before I became a real estate professional, I tried to sell my own home because the agent that I consulted to begin with told me I needed a new roof, my house was dated and I needed to sell it for 50K as is, or make some improvements that would result in the best return on my money. I made the decision to sell it FSBO, ask for 105K and prove her wrong. My house did not sell, the best offer I got was for 50K (amazing) and as the result of the market turning sour, I still have that home. I did followed her advise as far as improvements and turned it into rental property. I still see this agent as we work in the same area and now that I am an agent myself, I have the outmost respect for her because o...
