Within the last six months, I have really increased my leasing services activity.  I'm helping tenants (potential buyers) and landlords (potential sellers) in the process and have enjoyed some great success.  And I'm getting referrals as well. So I have this listing on the market in Johns Creek, GA, in the Blackstone subdivision, and it seems like an easy property to lease.  Great location - Johns Creek is an up and coming city in North Fulton, great school district Skareg is one of the best in Georgia, great subdivsion with lots of amenities.  I have talked to owner and we have dropped the lease price so that it is now the lowest in the subdivision in competition with five other listings for lease.  And all of the listings have virtually the same floor plan square footage.

Short sales in Alpharetta Ga and Johns Creek Ga are becoming more and more common. Many buyers of shorts sales in Alpharetta, GA and Johns Creek, GA ask me why the seller has to approve the short sale price.  A "short sale" happens when the lender who holds the note approves a sale at a price lower than what the seller owes on the loan.  Buyers ask, "The seller isn't making a profit on the sale anyway, so as long as the lender agrees, it shouldn't make any difference to the seller what the home sells for, right?"  WRONG! First and foremost, unreasonably low short sale offers are not approved.  The seller might be facing foreclosure, and doesn't have time to wait for months while unrealistic offers are processed by the lender.  If they submit every low ball offer, they may lose the oppor...

Real Estate Signs Ordinance in Johns Creek The City of Johns Creek has begun weekend patrols to enforce the city's sign ordinance, according to Director of Community Development Mike Williams. Officers have removed many improperly-placed signs in the last month. Avoiding removal of your real estate sign (and a possible citation) is easy if you follow the City's sign ordinance.  Most real estate signs, including directional signs, fall within the definition of "standard informational sign" in the ordinance. As such, their placement is restricted as follows: No signs may be placed within the public right-of-way.  Code enforcement staff advise that an easy way to locate the right-of-way is to use visual cues like fire hydrants and utility poles; Signs may be placed on private property, but...

Design2Sell did work with this client before to sell their former home, it went under contract in record time. The lovely European family moved into a new home in Johns Creek, but they where longing for a fresher feel. "I am beige out" told me the lady of the house. We worked with the couple to find a nice fresh and more modern color for their main Living and transitioning areas. From Beiged out to Blued In
