Have you been wondering how to go ahead with ‘selling the house by owner in Georgia?’ Well, for some homeowners, hiring a traditional realtor who charges a massive fee in return for full services, is not an option. These sellers want to control the entire home sale process. Not only does this allow them the freedom to set their own price for the home, and negotiate with the buyer using their skills, but also are able to save a significant amount of commission and make the home sale deal a profitable proposition for them.If you want to know how to sell your house by owner in Georgia, then here are some of the top ways.Home for CashSome owners who do not want to have several strangers walking into their house and at the same time do not want to pay thousands of realtor fees can consider s...

                                              Business is part of life, and we do the best business when we make it a reflection of how we live our lives. First, and foremost, 'do unto others as you would want them to do unto you!!'   Play nicely with people, and you'll find that your name will spread like wildfire.  There is always overlap with business and the way we live our personal lives. It's common to hear agents say they keep their personal lives and business separated. That makes sense, but the way we handle our personal lives is always interwoven with how we maneuver our business.  We are who we are, and it radiates forcefully during the tough moments of a business transaction. Not all transactions are smoothly flowing affairs. During the bumpy times, the innermost traits of ...

Truly constantly, without knowing it, when you choose the light points you make misapprehensions and gratuitous waste that can lead to shy lighting of a space or, on the negative, overpluses with relative eyestrain and energy expenditure.The help of professionals in the sector can help or fill certain gaps, helping us to make our home not only more practical and functional but also more beautiful.Lighting introducers who have been involved in the world of room lighting for times explain to us, room by room, how to organize and design lighting wisely, which foods to avoid and which bias to favor.In the living roomThe living room is the place where you spend relaxing moments and where you admit guests", continues Giusy Gallina." therefore, both too high and too low lighting situations are...

In my area the interest in new listings has picked up. Our listings are about 2x greater than three months ago. All prices too. Though the majority of sales are in the $300,000 to $500,000 range with the median being about $515K.It used to be when folks talked about listing they were thinking about the 3 Ps. Put up a sign, Place an ad, Pray.While I am sure that is still the norm the process, and it is a process, or Journey has gotten far more complicated and reaches out across many media to find buyers and bring them to the door.So for this episode I interview Kristen Bryant a broker with Coldwell Banker Cascade Real Estate and a member of my team and also my right hand.

Well the figures are in for July 2022. Even worse is what we have seen in the last 7 days. Las Vegas real estate is seeing huge changes in the market.With prices for both houses and condominiums dropping in the last month, as well as inventory skyrocketing, we are seeing a major shift in the Las Vegas market.Make sure to see the special 7 day chart for a closer look at what is happening.

El Arroyo is an iconic local spot in Austin. They make the best hand-squeezed margaritas and serve Black Angus beef tacos (along with many other Tex- Mex offerings) and have since 1975!A quirky marquee is out front on the corner of West 5th and Campbell. Every day they change their bill board with a new pun (everything imaginable). They encourage you to submit your pun on their website and of course have permission to post them. It’s one of those “Keep Austin Weird” things that we all love!They post them on Instagram because everyone loves them. We all need some laughter or a chuckle each day! I always check out to see the new pun for the day.  Hope you enjoy these! Happy Friday!!
