  There are many great reasons to call Athens, GA home.  Recently Athens, GA has won some great awards and had some really great press, so I thought it might be time to share some of them with you again! 9 Southern Towns You're Forgetting About But Shouldn't from Huffington Post  "Athens is known by different people for different things: to some, it's the birthplace of the B-52s and REM and a present-day killer music scene, to others it's the home of the University of Georgia. It's also just a really cool, walkable college town about 70 miles east of Atlanta." Athens Voted Top Foodie City in Southeast from Flagpole, "Athens is the best foodie city for groups in the Southeast, according to an online poll of ConventionSouth magazine readers."  Well, we already knew it! But validation is a...

The Athens, GA real estate market is well on it's way to recovery in 2014, in my opinion.  Pocket areas still continue to be volatile, but an overall an increase in median price has been occurring over the prior 12 months. Days On Market have also decreased overall.  I've also noted that some houses that were not distressed real estate (Short Sales or post Foreclosure) have been selling recently even after extended Days on the Market.  This indicates good news for those who wish to sell Athens, Ga area homes.  Potential sellers who but have been waiting for the market to recover, as they see a regain in their equity in many cases are able to at least break even or make a profit now. Although deals on post foreclosure (commonly know as REOs) homes are still available, there are fewer ava...

We've been fairly blessed in Athens, GA over the last few years.  While there have been pocket areas of declining values, our market have been more stagnant than declining.  And WOW, what a change for the good over the last 90+- days!   Inventory levels are LOW!  At their lowest point in over 36 months.  Resells are starting to get some attention again!   Prices are stablizing!  Even the ares with decline over the past 24 months are rising again.   What does this mean for the buyer or seller?  If you are shopping, don't wait any longer!  Competition is heating up.  If you are selling, or have wanted to sell but could not afford to lose you equity...now may be the time!   This is the most balanced market I have see in a while, so maybe it is time to take advantage of it.   Happy Real Est...

A recent trip to the grocery store led to an impromtu real estate seminar in the produce section yet again. A client who purchased their home from me a few years ago found me carefully inspecting cantaloupes - as always, the question of the day was "How's the real estate market?". I was overjoyed to answer  "Better than it's been in a few years now!".  And then proceeded to explain just why: The Athens, Ga market has remained mostly stable with only pockets of significantly declining areas. The inventory levels are at the lowest in a 24 month period.  This means it is a more balanced market - instead of just a strong buyer's market. Interest rates are fabulously low! Prices are still affordable! I am excited by the opportunities for both buyers and sellers in the Athens, GA real estate ...

The English Team had a fabulous time participating in the charity "Chili Contest" fundraiser at Gamma Phi Beta on the University of Georgia campus.  Gamma Phi Beta supports Childrens Miracle Network and a local Cancer support goup, Clute Barrow Nelson Life Foundation,Inc.      Hairy the Dawg is checking out Tim's pot of Chili.  Our "secret" ingredient was spicy Pumpkin Pie mix.  The result was interesting but we were beat out by even more imaginative chili cookers.   Hannah and the other pledges at Gmma Phi Beta had a great time and it was fun to be part of such a well run events.  Kudos to the girls at Gamma Phi Beta for such a well organized and well attended event.  Hope you raised a bunch of money for the deserving charities you represent.                                            ...

Recently, we were looking for something to do on a hot afternoon in Athens and came up with a couple of fun ideas. First, we visited the newly reopened Georgia Museum of Art over on the East Campus of the University of Georgia.  Previously, we had seen several special exhibits there, but they did not have room to display many of their own collection.  With a beautiful new addition, there are a number of paintings now on permanant display. Then we headed on over to the State Botanical Gardens located on South Milledge Avenue.  They were having a special exhibit of garden gates which were fun to discover.  We even ventured outside of the conservatory in spite of the heat to see some of our favorite gardens.
