Smyrna Vinings home sales peaked in June. Who would have imagined that we would see such a remarkable rebound compared to just a few years ago. Alas, there are limits in terms of what we expect from the Smyrna Vinings real estate. At this point, we’re seeing the market stabilizing at a very solid rate. Without more land to develop or more homeowners entering the resale market, this is looking like the new normal for Smyrna Vinings home sales. With US home loan rates remaining low, we expect demand to remain strong and we expect to see a lot of move-up homebuyers taking advantage of the opportunities that 2014 will offer. We’re certainly off to a good start. This chart shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selli...

Let’s recap Smyrna short sales for June 2014 and it’s impact on the current market. It’s important to understand the influence that short sales have on today’s market and to keep an eye on the market. Also, keep in mind that the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act has not been extended. This really shouldn’t have any impact on short sales and foreclosures, but could create a political firestorm as forgiven debt is now taxable again. In June, Smyrna short sales activity was: 5 active homes 15 pending homes 2 closed homes 7 active condos and townhomes 17 pending condos and townhomes 0 closed condos and townhomes If you’re in the market for a Smyrna short sale, whether a single family home, condo or townhome, we’re here to help.

The Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market has fully recovered and reached all time highs. Much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market, Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales continue to be spurred by low interest rates. Sales are now higher than 2007 levels, which is a huge shift and double the sales from just a couple years ago. As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision. The green bar is 2007 and we were selling a lot of condos and townhomes back then. Sales dro...

The Smyrna Summer Concert Series 2014 continues on Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Chris Stalcup & The Grange is an Americana Rock band from Atlanta Georgia. The band finds it’s sound situated squarely in the middle of the Southern Rock mecca for which many of their songwriting influences reign tall. Stalcup’s songwriting has been referred to as “…early Mark Kozelek if he had an inspired weekend of Gram Parsons, whiskey and Stax ’45s”. Weaving tales of loss and heartache with the seasoned talent of the band’s members, bring to life an authentic Southern storytelling experience. Stalcup’s gritty vocals and all or nothing stage presence lead the band’s dynamics from a slow swampy sway to a full blown rock and roll free for all. Chris Stalcup & The Grange has opened f...

We saw a slight uptick in Smyrna Vinings home sales in May 2014 as buyers continue to enter the Smyrna Vinings real estate market. With US home loan rates remaining low, we expect demand to remain strong and we expect to see a lot of move-up homebuyers taking advantage of the opportunities that 2014 will offer. We’re certainly off to a good start. This chart shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selling a fair amount more homes in 2007. Sales dropped significantly in 2008, with the drop becoming more pronounced toward the last quarter of 2008. That would be the beginning of the financial meltdown. 2009 home sales started off about 32% off the level just two years previously in January 2007. We saw Smyrna Vining...

Smyrna 2014 Summer Concerts In what is undoubtedly the most important event of the year, that’s right, it’s time for table reservations for the Smyrna 2014 Summer Concerts. Now you may be thinking to yourself that this is a grammatical error, but it’s not. The most important event is actually the table reservations. And if you think I’m kidding, show up at 9 or 10 in the morning and you’ll be disappointed that you can’t get a table. Sure there may be a few left, but in particular, the tables for the Smyrna Birthday Celebration seem to go very quickly and are only available to those who actually get there at the crack of dawn. You have been warned, so show up early if you want those tables. Reserve a table through Smyrna Parks & Recreation for one or all of the Smyrna concerts. Reservat...
