Good question -- and one that you hear often in today's Atlanta real estate market. The answer is that your home is probably overpriced. If you REALLY want to sell your home in the shortest amount of time for the HIGHEST PRICE - no matter what the market conditions -- there is ONE thing that you absolutely have to do: PRICE IT CORRECTLY. That may mean pricing it 1% to 4% below market value in order to stay ahead of the declining home values, but the upside is that it will SELL QUICKLY and may even generate multiple offers. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ According to ChartMaster Services LLC, more than 80% of all Metro Atlanta listings failed (i.e. didn't sell during the 3 to 6 month listing period).  That number is outrageous! If the Atlanta home sellers priced their home correct...

Berkeley Village Townhomes North Village Townhomes   Often times, we advertise North Village and Berkeley Village together.  They are only one mile apart, being built by the same developer and are both Craftsman style Townhomes in Decatur.  But, there are huge differences between the two. For starters, North Village is priced from the $150's.  It is located off Memorial Drive, and more of a first time buyer's home.  These 2-story new Decatur homes have 1 car garages, top GE Appliance package (black standard/stainless upgrade), and hard wood flooring in the foyers.  With 3 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms, there are trey ceilings in the master bedroom, seperate garden tubs and showers in the master bath, and cultured marble counters in all bathrooms. It is an amazing value for the money!
