  With technology, it is easier and easier to create a video of a home for sale. But just because it is easy does not mean everyone can do a great job. 1.  Is the video engaging to home buyers? 2.  If they start watching, will they want to continue? 3.  Does the sound add value or detract? (Profe...

There are now many bank owned foreclosures or REO properties on the market at Lake Martin. We are no different from anywhere else in the country in that respect. What is different about Lake Martin foreclosures is the curious choice that some banks or mortgage companies make when selecting a brok...

The waterfront property sales in the Lake Martin MLS* ended the year by tying 2007’s December sales of 4. When we looked at November 2008 sales for Lake Martin, we saw that 2008 monthly sales were starting to beat 2007.  How did we finish the year? To answer this question, and see a lot more grap...

CNBC re-ran the story on HealthSouth founder and former CEO Richard Scrushy - On a show called “American Greed.”  Not exactly the sort of bio that any businessman wants. Every story I have ever read or watched about Scrushy inevitably mentions his “Lake Martin mansion.” Don’t get me wrong, it is ...

On Friday January 23, 2009 the Lake Martin waterfront home of 216 Harrison Road, Dadeville, Alabama (map here) will be auctioned off on the steps of the Tallapoosa County Courthouse, downtown Dadeville. This is a rare type of auction in that, as far as I can tell, it is NOT a property tax auction...

Lake Martin’s newest deli and grocery - Catherine’s Market at Russell Crossroads - officially opened on Tuesday, December 16, 2008.  I went by there today for lunch to check out the inside of the store and deli.  It was really nice, a first class operation. As advertised, the market section had l...

Since I have a waterfront lot listed for sale in Lake Martin’s The Ridge, I get a lot of questions about the various amenities of the Ridge. One of the huge benefits to owning a waterfront home or town home in the Ridge is access to all of the “stuff.” Though I have been in the neighborhood count...

One of the great things about working around Lake Martin is that occasionally you bump into some really crazy folks. The other day I met Kyle Walton and a bunch of his buddies who are professional wakeskaters and /or wake boarders. click here to watch the video on my blog Lake Martin Voice

My family recently moved to a new-to-us home (fyi my “old” home sold in 2 days).  The new home is on a septic tank system, whereas the old one was tied in to the sewer system of the City of Montgomery.  This got me to thinking about a claim my father has long made, that is, those “flushable” wipe...

If I drive directly to my office from home, I never glimpse Lake Martin. So sometimes (read Mondays) when I am headed to the office, and need some inspiration or a reminder about what I am really doing, I drive to Kowaliga Bridge, take in the view, and turn around refreshed.  Today it was really ...

Lake Martin MLS* waterfront home sales did not match the sun and fun for August 2008. July 2008 waterfront home sales turned in a winner, beating 2007’s mark and giving us hope of the start of a rally. To read the results and see my 3 charts, CLICK HERE TO GO TO MY BLOG LAKE MARTIN VOICE

I was over in the Pleasure Point area the other day, going by two homes for sale that I have listed over there. One is on Claytons Lane and the other in on Captains Road.
