The No. 1 essential for your office is comfort. An office you want to be in will help you get more done! Keep in mind the number of hours you will spend there. Choose a location that is big enough so you aren't squeezed in anywhere, in a separate room, if possible. Your chair is everything — make sure it is ergonomically correct and adjustable, rotates 360 degrees, and allows for rocking and bouncing. You should test the chair in-store and have a warranty in case you don't like it after a couple of hours at home. A stand-up desk reduces the time you spend sitting and eases pain, or opt for an adjustable-height desk. Lighting is key to fighting eye strain, so position lights where they won't create a glare against the computer screen. Position a desk lamp on the opposite side from your w...

 When Mcdonough house values—or even only the public’s perception of house values—rise and fall at eye-popping rates, even homeowners who aren’t thinking of selling find it unsettling. The dislocations that resulted from the housing crisis of the last decade are hard to forget. Although some risk-tolerant investors made headway in that environment, the fallout for most was at best nerve-wracking.That’s why last Tuesday’s National HPPI report may be comforting to Mcdonough homeowners, as well as to prospective buyers. The Home Price Perception Index is the distillation of data gathered by Quicken Loans. It covers 3,000-plus counties in all 50 states—so it’s national rather than local—but there is little reason to doubt that the gist of the trends it reports are echoed here. The Index tal...

 Everyone still calls active would-be Henry County home buyers “house hunters.” The term hasn’t changed; the goal hasn’t, either—but today the activity it conjures up is very different from that it did just a short while ago. For instance, for Henry County house hunters whose last hunt was in, say,1990, their memory of “house hunting” is probably that of thumbing through stacks of black-and-white listing sheets provided by the real estate agent. Those may have been a little hard to read, especially if they’d been sent to their oh-so-slow home fax machine. If any of the sheets looked worth pursuing, the next step might have “beeping” the agent’s pager—whereupon the agent would have then contacted the seller’s agent (usually through their answering machine) to set up a showing. House hunt...

Like almost everyone else in Stockbridge who spends time online, I often come across lists. Headlines that list the “Top 10” or “Top 5” of almost anything usually catch my eye—especially the ones with “real estate” in the title. I’ve trained myself to just glance at the items and move on if they don’t add to the day’s useful information. Checking through the most recent crop of Stockbridge real estate lists yielded, “Top 10 Issues Affecting Real Estate,” “Top 8 Ideas for Real Estate Investing”, “5 Best Real Estate Investment Books”, etc.. This week there were a lot of lists of “Top Real Estate Questions”—which got me to thinking. What would a seriously thoughtful list of Real Estate Questions for Stockbridge consist of? I came up with my own top 8 list of real estate questions for Stock...

Your Mcdonough investment properties are fulfilling all the potential you hoped they would. They do more than just pay for themselves with the cash that flows in with the tenants’ monthly rent checks—they also build equity with each mortgage payment. The wisdom of those investments is reinforced every time you check your personal balance sheet. The growing contribution to ‘Real Property’ line on the asset side makes a pleasing counter to the shrinking figure in the liabilities column. When it comes to your Mcdonough investment properties, the bottom line is, literally, the bottom line.All well and good, provided that the happy state of affairs continues. But if there is one thing that seasoned investors agree on, it’s that successful rental property owners keep an eye on their investmen...

Last week, Henry County residents who found themselves at any stage of preparing to buy or sell Henry County homes had to have been motivated by what came out of Washington. Last Wednesday was the day the Federal Reserve officials were set to announce their new target for the benchmark federal funds rate. That’s the key trigger for future Henry County home loan rates, which largely determine how attractive (or not) upcoming loan packages offers will be. Since any rise in rates raises monthly payment amounts—even if the underlying size of the loan remains the same—potential buyers and sellers have reason to watch what the Fed does with varying degrees of apprehension. Lately, strong economic performance has made it increasingly likely that rate rises will be forthcoming—and in its announ...

No matter what their current financial profile, home buyers in Jamestown share knowledge that the value of the property they are acquiring will become a significant entry whenever their family’s net worth is reckoned.For those whose total in that category weighs in at $5 million or more: great! You're considered "ultra-wealthy" according to the Spectrum Group, a wealth management research organization that defines "ultra high net worth" as households with at least that figure.  On the other hand, for home buyers in Henry County who are laser-focused on a more immediate financial task at hand (finding, qualifying for and buying the perfect Henry County home), some relevant research suggests that their ultra-wealthy fellow home buyers might be able to share some attitudes that aren’t ofte...

Written by Cory Kammerdiener      Many home buyers enter the process of buying their first home and they don’t understand credit or how it works. They may not have the best credit score now, but they don’t understand how using a secured credit card can help or how their credit score is figured out. Maybe you’ve already tried to find your first home and you were rejected for the mortgage. Did you simply give up and decide you’re a lifelong renter? You don’t have to rent forever. Even if you’ve been rejected for a mortgage, you can still buy a home, with a little patience and diligence. There are easy ways to rebuild your credit and the top solution includes getting credit cards and using them properly to build your credit score back up. What Type of Credit Score Do You Need To Get a Mor...

Most Stockbridge real estate turnaround practitioners follow what might be called “The House Flippers’ Creed”: buy, fix, sell—as quickly as possible! The speed factor isn’t just because, as in most businesses, volume dictates profitability. It’s also due to the investment’s interest expense—the value of money over time. You don’t need an economics class to see how it can gnaw away at a bottom line.Now it seems that The Creed’s fundamental hypothesis is being challenged in many parts of the nation—at least by buyers targeting dated homes for their own use. According to last week’s Wall Street Journal essay about the rising tide of “Extreme Makeovers” which focused on residences that have had a single owner for decades. Many are in need of “new interior styles” and technology—and they’re ...

If you’re keeping abreast of the latest Mcdonough real estate doings and you come across the word “surban”—that isn’t just some sloppy spelling. It’s a new real estate term we’re likely to see a lot more often.The most-cited definition for “surban” is in Urban Dictionary.com. It defines the word as “a mix of urban and suburban living.” That’s accurate as far as it goes, but doesn’t include some wider implications that could well affect Mcdonough real estate trends in meaningful ways—especially if some generalizations about millennials prove accurate.  The Washington Post’s article, “Millennials Go ‘Surban’” tells the history of a young couple who grew up in typical suburban surroundings, but later moved to the big city (Chicago) where they enjoyed “the vibrant neighborhood of boutiques ...

For those who may have been wondering how the final GOP Tax Bill could affect possible real estate investment plans and tax liability next year, the changes can be significant.I know, I know. As soon as you saw “tax liability,” your eyes glossed over and your finger got ready to swipe right. But before you skip the following, I promise to keep it short, relevant, and potentially beneficial for investors and potential investors here in Henry County:SIGNIFICANT fact #1:You can now take 100% depreciation upfront for assets with useful lives of less than 20 years. For example, if you buy personal property (like carpet, new appliances, tools, equipment) or if you make land improvements (like landscaping, driveways, parking) you can probably immediately write off the entire cost of these asse...

 If you’re selling your home in Stockbridge this summer, there’s one piece of pre-sale advice that will almost always pay off: the pre-sale home inspection.You might be surprised to learn that many sellers elect not to take advantage of this service—but I can’t say I blame them. A home inspection costs money (usually a couple hundred dollars), and it seems counter-intuitive: “Why would you want to bring up your home’s flaws?”  Plus, it’s just one more thing to do when selling your Stockbridge home. “Why borrow trouble?”In fact, there are compelling reasons to take this extra step:          Discovering hidden or otherwise unknown flaws in your home in advance allows you ample time to fix them before the home goes on the market          If you discover and fix these issues, you’ll able to...

 If they follow the same path home loan applicants across the nation are choosing, most Henry County mortgage applicants will continue passing up adjustable-rate offerings. As last week’s Real Estate News analysis points out, there are multiple reasons for that phenomenon.It’s been a decade since the financial meltdown had everyone rethinking the nation’s (and their own) disposition toward the way mortgage products were viewed. The headline may have been worth a chuckle (“ARMs Don’t Have Legs”) but the history that produced it was anything but hilarious—especially for adjustable-rate mortgage borrowers who fared poorly in the financial meltdown. Leading up to the crisis, the Mortgage Bankers Association traced a steady gain in popularity for the adjustables. From 1998-2008, the average ...

In my capacity as Henry County real estate information-gatherer, I really couldn’t pass up last week’s, “How to Sell Your House for More than It’s Worth.”  I know; I know: that’s the kind of web clickbait we’ve all learned to avoid—like popups announcing “New Law Cuts Henry County Residents’ Tax Bill in Half!” or “Secret Diet Miracle Food Celebrities Won’t Tell You About.” By now we’ve learned that the “new law” will turn out to be an obscure exception that applies only to some very small group and the “secret miracle diet food” is water. But despite all that, the “Sell Your House” essay turned out to be thought-provoking—although not in the way the authors probably intended.First, about the article itself: its how-to guidance was organized into subtitles like “Quick Fix” and “Face lift...

 Every Mcdonough Realtor® has heard this observation from a selling client more than once: “Now that I’ve fixed the place up, it’s so nice to live here!” It’s sometimes followed by a wistful, “I should have done it years ago!” They don’t need to add, “so we could have enjoyed it ourselves.”The culprit has to be human nature—at least the part that resists spending money improving something that works (even if it doesn’t work all that well). One of the prime areas where this tends to hold true is in Mcdonough kitchens. Since it’s generally acknowledged that the kitchen area is one place (if not the place) that gets the most intense scrutiny from prospective buyers, it is also one of the first areas that sellers decide to update. For anyone who might decide to sell within the next few year...

Georgia and Henry County are not immune to at least one outfall from what the New York Times calls “the great American single-family home problem”: the looming shortage in affordable places to live. What might seem to be mostly a distant challenge for faraway metropolitan areas could eventually affect single-family neighborhoods, too. Areas where today “low-density living is treated as sacrosanct” may well come to experience varying degrees of change.Ground Zero. California is (as usual) Ground Zero for what may become a more widespread trend. It’s already an extreme example of an affordable housing crunch—the state’s median home price is over $500,000. That’s more than twice the national average, but, as we’ve often seen, where California goes, the rest of the nation often follows.Extr...

When it comes to Henry County house hunting, sooner or later you’re bound to find yourself confronted by a question of proper house touring etiquette. After all, you’re an invited guest in somebody else’s Henry County home—someone who you don’t know, who isn’t around, and whose house rules are a cipher. As you’d expect, the normal rules of courtesy apply—except when they don’t. For instance, if you are visiting a friend’s home, it wouldn’t be very polite to go about opening up the bedroom closet doors—but on Henry County house tours, unless you are instructed otherwise, that’s behavior that gets a green light. You might be treated to a “peek and shriek” if the seller has resorted to some last-minute decluttering via closet-packing, but house touring etiquette says that closet inspection...

For most Henry County July 4th celebrants, the period between the last barbecued hot dog and the first firework (even if it’s only on TV) can drag on so long that it threatens the festivities. Times like these may not quite try men’s (or Moms’) souls, but they do cry out for creative diversions like word games, foam football tosses, or—in extreme cases—trivia. As a public service for those in need of sparking Independence Day trivia, here are Henry County July 4th trivia I present in the form of six quiz questions. Warning: the answers may be stranger than you think:       When was the first July 4th celebration in the White House? a)      1776b)      1781c)      1801d)     1866       Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence on a)      July 5b)      a Tuesdayc)      a birchbark c...
