There are a couple of things I have been working on for LilburnDwellings for 2009...  First will be to get into more listed properties to provide an unbiased look at the value of the property.   Because of MLS (Multiple Listing Service) rules and NAR (National Association of REALTORS) rules as we...

Today I was probably asked that question 10 to 20 times (it felt more like 100 to 200 times).  In my first 30 years of my life I tried to make meaningful resolutions each and every New Year's Eve.  I would try and try; but would fall short with in the first few months or so.  Then a First Sergean...

For those that are interested, here are the predictions I made for 2008, as well as a wrap-up post about the results.  I was right on 6½ of the ten real estate predictions...  So here are the predictions for the coming year...

I just ran a survey of the newly listed properties from the last 30 days.  I have to say that I am quite surprised by what I found... I was looking specifically for how the listings were presented.  We know from every bit of research done on buyer behavior that photos and virtual tours are among ...

The commercials are driving me crazy...  I hear them constantly.  Two women talking about buying a house, and the one woman tells her friend that she paid $20,000 for this beautiful 4 bedroom home.  The announcer kicks in that there are actual listings for 4 bedrooms homes for under $20,000.  The...

My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on the 20th of December at 4 p.m. I can not begin to thank God enough for the blessing of being the son of these two wonderful and God fearing people.  In early 1958, my dad (to be) was walking along one Sunday night on a street in Knoxville, T...

I will admit I am an optimist. Usually... But I am also a contrarian. So, I generally tend to run counter to most, and I look for the good. Right now, anyone that finds anything positive in real estate is definately a contrarian. But I am starting to be an optimist. There are two big reasons... S...

I'm just tossing this out because I get a few questions about it on a regular basis. When I mail out packages to people or even when they look at my business card they see that my office is in Dacula. Granted, at least it is still Gwinnett County, but it isn't like it is nearby. But, here is the ...

One of my favorite daily activities is to review political cartoons.  I enjoy the way they are able to cut to the heart of an issue and the best ones are more informative than most network news stories.  Whatever your political or social background they can lighten our day and even make us rethin...

Markets are not nearly as logical as one would expect them to be.  The stock market, the commodities market... even the real estate market.  Don't get me wrong, the DO move based on logic and reason, and they appear to be very logical... but there is a HUGE component that isn't logical... There a...

I wrote about a few deals in Lilburn a couple of weeks ago. On November 20th, I posts Lilburn Deal #4, which was a house listed at $314,000. And I think it was a GREAT deal... $75k in current equity. It just came up in my feed as "Pending Sale". Someone is scheduled to close on that ho...

Friday on BlogTalkRadio, the question was, "Is now the time to buy?" I was on the show for the last 20 minutes or so talking about it with Ken Cook, the host. The full broadcast is about an hour long, but I can hit the high points... It is a tough question to answer because there are SO many vari...

Something leaked...  We don't know who leaked it, but there is a plan being considered by the Treasury Department to give a boost to home sales.  Basically, the plan is for the Treasury to push rates down to a target 4.5% for a 30 year fixed mortgage. From what I am reading around the internet, i...

I get that question a lot.  I've lived and worked in the Atlanta area now for almost 20 years... Let me give a quick bio for those that don't really know me...  1965-1966 - Upstate NY. Doesn't count for much since i was only a year old when I left... 1966-1976 - Jackson, MI.  Also keep in mind th...

There was a lot of attention paid to this a few months ago when it was first introduced, but everyone has kind of let it slide to the back burner since then... and that is a shame because this is an interesting time to be in the real estate market as a buyer. First, let me cover a few basics: Whi...

Ok, you’ve seen the TV commercials and scoured the Thanksgiving paper.  You know that the best deals require that you get to the store by 5:00am… or even 4:00am, right? Sleep in, call me, and let’s go get you a new house (ok, a new to you house…) and save $100,000.  That is even better than picki...
