Learn how to set your house apart from the competition and get top dollar for your home.
We will be posting our Market update next week. For now with so many choosing to put their home on the market, I want to revisit the importance of creating the perfect selling environment when selling your home. Once your home hits the market, it has to be properly priced, properly marketed and have the best packaging. In today’s market, buyers are making compromises, due to the lower inventory but if you want to be the home that buyers are fighting over, presentation is still critical to getting top dollar and multiple offers. 1. Buyers want crisp, clean and neutral. Two of your best investments, with the largest return, are paint and carpet. 2. Wallpaper. Buyers are looking for a home online and they do not want to see wallpaper in the …

Recognizing who and what make Peachtree Corners a great place to live, work and play, enhancing property values along the way.
The new city of Peachtree Corners is a highly desirable place to live. Many things make a great community such as great public schools, great private schools, sidewalks, parks, the Chattahoochee River and great shopping but all this will mean nothing if you have a city without heart. The people of this community are the heart. The hard working caring folks who go about silently helping their neighbors.The people who volunteer, the teachers, the little league coaches and all the others who take the time to care about their neighbors and their community. The people who want our community to shine and are not talkers but are doers. I wish I knew everyone and could mention all who contribute to our community. I welcome comments with additions …

A quick look at the year-to-date numbers for Berkeley Lake and Peachtree Corners areas.
Throughout metro Atlanta there is a familiar trend. More activity, fewer listings and values continue to decline. The decline in listings represents people who are taking their homes off the market for various reasons. Some of these people will lease since they owe more than the homes will sale for.

There are numerous benefits of having the services of a buyer's agent.
When you hire a buyer’s agent to represent you they are legally bound to represent your interest at all times. The agent with the listing has a duty to represent the seller, not you. You will face a long list of requirements; forms, financing, inspections, marketing, pricing and negotiating. A buyer’s agent can guide you through this maze with the skill that makes it a pleasant and rewarding experience. There are two million licensed real estate agents in the United States. About half or one million are Realtors®. These Realtors® are held to a higher standard than a licensed agent with no affiliation to The National Association of Realtors®. They are bound by a code of ethics that they are bound to adhere. The trouble with having so many …
