The Week in Review: Smyrna Vinings home mortgage interest rates marginally decreased this week as the upheaval in the Ukraine has become more of a market force than US economic indicators. Rates moved almost .125% lower. What to Expect: It is an interesting week for economic data. The biggest report of all – the monthly Employment Report – comes out Friday. There are multiple other reports on tap as well, including personal spending and manufacturing reports. The developments oversea will continue to shape the markets. However, recent economic data has been favorable. If the global fear subsides this week, home loan rates might move higher. Our recommendation is to lock in transactions. For transactions closing in: Next 15 Days: Lock Next 30+ Days: Lock Courtesy of: Bob Bregitzer South...

The Week in Review: What's the latest news on Smyrna Vinings home loan rates? We saw very little change in home mortgage interest rates last week. Friday’s employment report was weak, but most discounted the report due to an unusually cold winter. What to Expect: Most economists called for higher mortgage rates in 2014; however, rates have moved lower so far this year. Has the projection changed? So far this year, the combination of domestic lackluster economic reports along economic and currency weakness in various overseas countries have helped move interest rates lower. Janet Yellen delivered her first public remarks as the new Fed Chairman today and stated that financial market turmoil would not pose a major risk to the US economic outlook. She also stated that she will continue to...

There are many hidden gems when looking at homes and certainly some may offer more than others and some may be a hidden gem to some buyers, but not others. One hidden gem comes to mind with a buyer a couple years ago. At that point in time, there were lots of homes to choose from, some newer, some older. But one of the houses that my client liked had the added advantage of being walking distance to West Village. Since it wasn't actually in West Village, it didn't have the premium price. West Village is a live/work/play development in the Smyrna Vinings area and is pretty unique to the area. Sure you can find others in metro Atlanta, but this is really the only one in this area on the northwest side of Atlanta. The ability to walk to shops, restaurants, grocerty store, coffee shop, hair ...

Here’s our Smyrna short sales recap for January 2014 and it’s impact on the current market. It’s important to understand the influence that short sales have on today’s market and to keep an eye on the market. Also, keep in mind that the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act has not been extended. This really shouldn’t have any impact on short sales and foreclosures, but could create a political firestorm as forgiven debt is now taxable again. In January, Smyrna short sales activity was: 5 active homes 24 pending homes 2 closed homes 7 active condos and townhomes 19 pending condos and townhomes 1 closed condos and townhomes If you’re in the market for a Smyrna short sale, whether a single family home, condo or townhome, we’re here to help.

The Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market was on fire in December much like the Smyrna Vinings homes. Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales have had a strong year, which is evident in the buyer activity that we’ve seen in 2013. Sales are now higher than 2007 levels, which is a huge shift and double the sales from just a couple years ago. It’s amazing how quickly things changed. As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were s...

2013 is officially over. It’s been an amazing year for Smyrna Vinings home sales as they continue to grow. Sales have continued to grow throughout the year and are reaching levels that we never thought could happen just a couple years ago. How much longer can we expect this to keep going? Typically we see lower sales in November through January, but that wasn’t the case last year and will be interesting to see what happens this year. This chart shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selling a fair amount more homes in 2007. Sales dropped significantly in 2008, with the drop becoming more pronounced toward the last quarter of 2008. That would be the beginning of the financial meltdown. 2009 home sales started off...

The Week in Review: Time for your Smyrna Vinings mortgage rate update. The December jobs report surprised the markets last Friday with a much lower than expected number of job gains. The report helped mortgage interest rates drop from multiple year highs. What to Expect: The drop in rates continued into this week. However, it would not be wise to see this as a change in the overall trend. Home mortgage interest rates will continue to climb during the year. The advice is to get them while you can. This week we will receive numerous economic reports starting Tuesday. Retail, manufacturing, inflation and housing will be highlighted. Locking is still the best option. This week’s economic data may put interest rates right back where they were. For transactions closing in: Next 15 Days: Lock...
