Top 5 Seller Real Estate Myths as discussed on The Today Show on Monday 1/26/09 with Barbara Corcoran.  I will also expand on each topic with my own opinion and experience in my community. Myth #1:  Now is the absolute worst time to sell your home. They note that it really depends upon where you live because the worst hit markets are beginning to turn around.  Also, if you are planning to buy a bigger/more expensive home, the loss you'll take on your currenthome will be more than offset by the bargain price you'll be getting on your next purchase Myth #2:  Never respond to a low ball bid. Since most buyers today feel obligated to put in low-ball offers, we must deal with these offers.  You should come back with a reasonable counter offer.  If the buyer is serious, the will probably come...

The public is invited to see and comment on the initial downtown master plan on February 10, 2009 at the Suwanee Crossroads center at 6:30.

Interactive stations will be set up to allow participants to provide feedback on various segments of the plan. This feedback will be used to shape the final Downtown Master Plan, which will be presented in April.

Step 1: Finding the Right Foreclosure Choosing the right foreclosure is about starting with a big scope picture of the market and then narrowing down your options, and that starts by understanding your goals is this purchase and investment? a Buy and Hold? or a Buy Fix Rent? or Buy Fix Occupy then Sell? once you know your goals, then you need to develop a can start to target properties by town, city, county or even zip code, school system, price, rehab costs, bedrooms and baths. As an experienced agent in this Georgia Foreclosure market I can't tell you how many times a day I get a call with the other party saying "I want to by a Foreclosure.. can you help me " ... and the other party has not even determined they what they will do with the property once they get it.. the old dog chasing...

The market is Down and It is the time to buy a home!  The problem that buyers are facing is that nobody realized what the next wave was going to be...It is now the economy and joblessness that is our challenge! What can you do?  You need to understand all of the factors that circle around the fears we as people may be dealing with.  It is the absolute best time you could ever think of buying a home if you are in the position to do so...you have to feel this, and let go of your fear! I have always believed that if you continuously worry so much about something, it will eventually come true!  This goes true for positive, steadfast visions too!  Which path are you on?  It is not too late to switch if you are on the wrong one...but you must make a decision to change and be confident! As alw...

Recently a relatively new web site provider has been making an attempt to become the site provider for the agents in my office. They claim to be able to provide more leads to agents by distributing listings to more portals and classified directories thus getting listings more exposure than they would normally get. We decided to beta test them with 12 agents in the office for a 2 month period to get an idea of what the results would be like. Being a bit skeptical of their claims, I agreed to be one of the beta testers. Yesterday we launched my new Atlanta Homes for Sale web site and will be testing it for several months to evaluate the quality and quantity of incoming leads. As soon as there is adequate data I will post here again on this provider.

 IS NOW A GOOD TIME TO SELL I am asked over and over, "Is it a good time to sell?"" what's happening in my neighborhood to home values" in The answer is a complicated one; not as confusing as why did elephant bell bottoms make a comeback, but non the less complex. The truth is buyers buy out of want and need sellers should be selling out of need. Sellers now is not the time for a cash out and run approach the numbers show that over time homeownership is a good investment and that what we are seeing is a small % percentage of homes selling "cheap" as a result of foreclosures and short sales and that once the "foreclosure / short sale" inventor clears out home prices will stabilize and begin to return to normal levels. So Sellers do not head for the exit just because some yelled fire and ...
