If you've been renting a home or condominium, it may seem easier and more cost-effective to continue as a renter for the foreseeable future. While the real estate market has seen some downturns in recent history, there are still very compelling emotional and financial reasons to own your home. Happy Homeowners For decades, part of the American dream included purchasing a home. It's the outward sign of success and provides an opportunity to shape your living environment and community in ways that are unavailable or difficult for renters. Some studies even suggest that homeowners report greater life satisfaction and exhibit better psychological health than non-homeowners. Owning a home generally offers greater stability and security. Homeowners don't have to check with a landlord to make ...

Home in Historic Marietta SOLD in 5 days! I was recently pulled aside at the gym by a woman who found out I was a REALTOR in the metro Atlanta area.   "Can you please come see my home?" she begged, "it's been on the market for TWO YEARS and hasn't sold!".  It had just expired, so I agreed to take a look at it. When I drove by, it seemed cute enough.  It was in the Historic section of Marietta, near the Square, and was a nice ranch with a two-car garage, a rarity in that neighborhood.   So I went home to look up the expired listing on FMLS. OMG.  Here is what I saw:     The mystery was solved!  Unfortunately, these sellers had been victims of BAD MARKETING.  Turns out, while trying to be helpful, that the husband had taken the pictures of the home on his cell phone, and delivered them to...

How We Sold This Marietta Georgia Home in 5 Days In fact, not only did we get a contract in 5 days, we had a bidding war between two buyers with another two other agents preparing to write offers as well. For the sellers, this wasn't just good news, it was great news as their home had been on the market for two years prior. So, how did we sell this Marietta Home in 5 days? They used an incredible Marietta REALTOR. Her name is Kirsten Conover with Prudential Georgia. I've had the great pleasure of working with Kirsten for over three years and she is perhaps one of the hardest working real estate agents I've met. I provided the homeowners with a home staging consultation. More on that subject below. Kirsten hired Iran Watson - perhaps Atlanta's best real estate photographer, to capture th...

   When I moved to Atlanta five years ago, I fell in love with the "in-town" areas of Virginia Highlands, Inman park, Midtown... I longed for one of the cute 1920's bungalows I saw everywhere in those neighborhoods.  Unfortunately, my mortgage person soon gave me a reality check and I realized that I would probably have to consider a more affordable area if I wanted my bungalow...and also if I wanted to avoid the "joy"of Atlanta city taxes! As I continued my search just north of the city, I stumbled upon Historic Marietta, a small area just West of 75.  It had historic homes surrounding a charming town square with restaurants, coffe shops, antique stores, even a well-known theater.    I saw people walking to the Square from their homes, sitting in outdoor cafes, or just relaxing in Glov...
