Well after 38 years the 1001 feet tall smoke stack is no longer.  I admit I felt a little nostalgic when it came down.  I have watched this a few times and I didn't say a word.  I just realized I didn't say a word.  You can hear Donald say WOW, you can hear dozens of people taking photos. You can...

Today I got a call from the executor of the estate on one of my listings. They dropped by the price by nearly $25,000. They are ready to close out the estate and move on. It's a rare find on Lake Sinclair with more than 5 acres and over 600 feet of shoreline. Double boathouse, cookout pavilion an...

When a person calls our office and says "we're in the driveway can you come show us this house?" The answer is NOT ALWAYS yes.  Sometimes I do go and meet clients I have never met before at a home, but when I do it's when another agent in my office can go with me.I realize that it's NOT always co...

I have been dreadfully behind on my market reports. I was so far behind in fact that I got an email this week asking "are you still doing market reports?" So I got busy and hope to catch up by the end of the week, if not next week for sure.Starting with the good news first for 2015 volume was up ...

Unless you've been under a rock you've been hearing about the Zika Virus and the harm it can do to unborn babies and that cases are not in the United States. It's been on the news in an election cycle, which means it's really big news. Now I'm NOT being an alarmist. But living on/near water can c...

I am happy to report that I have a new listing that will be available to be seen very soon.  I hope to get photos soon (please let the sun come out tomorrow) and get it into the MLS.  Meanwhile I did snap one photo of view from my cell phone the day the owners showed me around their home. Check b...

It feels like our summer season lasted a bit longer than usual this year. We had a wonderful month of closings right through October. With that said I'll get to the best news first.   We had 32 residential closings on Lake Sinclair in October.  Sales prices ranged from $75,000 to $545,000 with an...

The September average for a waterfront home sale was $218,689. The good news is that some smaller homes sold because the ave...

Lake Sinclair, Georgia's best kept secret, with the exception of planned draw downs (one of which is scheduled for this October) by Georgia Power that occur every few years for shoreline maintenance and dam re-certificiation stays at or near full pool.  Many of Georgia's lakes are more than 10 fe...

For the first time in more than 5 and half years of compiling data for market reports when I ran the numbers for the end of June we had less than a years worth of inventory at the current rate of absorption.  I am delighted for sellers to report there is only 10 months worth of inventory. That's ...

Recently,  and it wasn't the first time, a potential seller walked into my office with a single piece of paper from the developer they got in the mail back in 1980 when they purchased property at Lake Sinclair.  It identified the property only as Tract XX, Lot XX, no county, no street, no subdivi...

Many agents won't even talk to you unless you walk in the door to meet them with a pre-approval in hand. But at Lane Realty, because of the multitude of different properties we show and list, we know that might not be the best thing for you.Will you be considering: Georgia Power lease lots Georgi...

Well with firewords being legal in Georgia now my best guess is ANYWHERE!  BUT if you are looking for the only organized gathering for fireworks... Oconee Springs Park! If you attend by car be prepared to park outside the gate and walk.  Bring your own chairs or blanket.  By boat let me show you ...

This morning I read a post about how the first half of this year looked compared to the first half of last year.  I say we should wait about another 30 days to figure that out.  22 more days for it to actually BE mid year and then about a week for so for some agents to actually enter the sales da...

Ooops, is really what it is, but hey it happens.  Well actually it really doesn't happen anymore except on rare lots where the fee simple portion isn't large enough to build a home on, but it did happen quite a few times and this type of ownership exists and we have to deal with it.You'll need to...
