Prices Up 7.5% Year over Year in June 2014
Inventory is low so buyers are competing for the best homes.
  Average home price for single family detached homes in the overall Atlanta area for January 2014 is now up to $223,990 vs. $182,708 in January  of 2013.  Volume is also down 11% due to low inventory.

Inventory is ticking up along with interest rates.  But rates are still way below long term averages.

This is the overall Atlanta market.  For more local data for 32 different areas around Atlanta,

The Smart Way to Shop for the Best Mortgage Lenders
Shop the Internet and then get a trusted, local lender to match the best rates
  There are three sites you need to study so you know you are getting the best rates available. Once you know what a good rate is, then simply call one of my preferred lenders to see if they can match it.  Pre-approvals are a must when putting in an offer.  A ten minute phone call to one of my preferred lenders is all it takes to get the necessary pre-approval letter.  ...(Read more)  
Beat Investors to the Best Foreclosure Deals
Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and HUD "First Look" Periods for Owner/Occupants
  Some of the best foreclosures today are Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae properties.  Many have been spruced up so that they are in move-in condition.  Even better for owner/occupants is that they have a "first look" period where investors are locked out during the first two weeks.  This gives a regular buyer a better chance....(Read more)

Custom Video Tours for Out of Town Buyers
Atlanta VIP Relo Express Service
  Most buyers can never get enough pictures, especially when you are try to make decisions from another city.  I'm not the listing agent so I'm limited to what's in the MLS.  But, with the permission of the listing agent, I can visit the home for you and take as many pictures and video as you'd like.  Using a special video stabilizer I can capture a smooth and clear video that is the next best thing as being there...(Read more)  
 

Typical Relocation Buyer Experience
Seeing 28 Homes Makes the Decision Easy

Arrive on Saturday, see 28 homes in two days and negotiate a contract on Monday.  Fly back home and do everything else via email and fax and video.  To get good results, you need to be organized and be working with an experienced agent who knows how to be efficient.  Here's one example about a relocating buyer that I worked with.

The Secrets to Effective Negotiations
Skill and experience to position buyers for a good deal

  Does the "tough guy" approach work with residential real estate?  WARNING, if you come across as a hard-nosed wheeler-dealer who thinks it's necessary to beat up on the negatives of someone's home, you need to read this 3 part series on negotiating residential real estate in Atlanta.  I negotiated hundreds of transactions and I know from experience what works.  It's all about positioning the buyer. 
Part 1: "Tough Guy" vs "Nice Guy" Approach.

Do You Want the Real Scoop About a Particular Area?
A great site to ask questions about the things that are important to you

Most frequent question I receive. "Where are the best places to live with the safest neighborhoods and the best schools that's close to everything and is affordable?"  Great question but very subjective. Instead of getting very limited information from just one agent, you can get the opinions from many regular folks and sort it out yourself...(Read more)    
 

Atlanta Prices Compared to Other Cities
Prices look pretty cheap in comparison.  Great Opportunity

Compared to other cities, Atlanta never really had a bubble in prices.  Unfortunately, prices still took a beating.  That is why Atlanta is such an attractive market, especially to investors.  Take a look at the Case-Shiller Index.  The only market lower than Atlanta is Detroit.  With Atlanta's diverse industries, low taxes and mild climate, it's just a matter of time before prices appreciate and get closer to the prices in other cities...(Read more)

Beware of the Agent with All the Signs
It can be dangerous to your wallet

Have you ever driven through a neighborhood and seen one agent with most of the homes for sale?  Your first thought might be that they must know a lot about the neighborhood.  You might think it would be a good thing to deal directly with that agent if you decide to buy a home there.  STOP!  Let's think about it and see if it really makes sense....(Read more)    
 

What Is a Short Sale?
How is it different from a foreclosure?

  Buying a home isn't as easy and straight forward as it used to be.  Short sales are a whole different animal.  You have to understand what they are so you can have the right expectations.  Otherwise, you will become frustrated and probably waste a lot of your valuable time...(Read more)  
 

Zestimates vs. Reality. Useful Tool or Spiffy Gimmick?
Can be off by as much as 72%. Status changes can take months to show up.

How accurate are Zillow Zestimates?  A small study reveals they can be off by as much as 72%.  It's not really surprising since it's just a computer model.  They don't go visit the homes in person so how would they know the condition and other details?  Zillow is also very slow to update status changes.  It might show a home as being an active listing even though it sold a few months ago.  It can be pretty frustrating if used as a main search tool...(Read more)

Prices have rebounded and are headed up

Price through June 2014

 

The Inventory of single family detached homes has come down dramatically.  Low prices and low supply is causing many multiple offer situations and bids over asking price.

 

Atlanta has a lot of potential for prices to move up since they are near the bottom of the 20 cities that make up the Case-Shiller Index.  Prices have to rise 25% just to catch back up to the inflation rate.

Where We Do Business

Our market area is in the north metro Atlanta area.  We service Cobb County, north Fulton County, Dekalb County, Forsyth County and Gwinnett County.  We are very familiar with Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Marietta, Roswell, Alpharetta, Buckhead, and Midtown. 

We have sold homes inside the perimeter and outside the perimeter.  We can't know everything so for clients who want to look for property in Peachtree City, Newnan, Stone Mountain, Douglasville, Macon and areas further out we will gladly recommend a good agent who specializes in those areas.

We help buyers negotiate with builders for residential new construction houses. New houses in Atlanta are hot right now. We can represent you in the purchase of your new house built by any of the following builders: Torrey Homes, MDC Homes, Centex Homes, Pulte Homes, Morrison Homes, Ryland Homes, John Wieland Homes, Winmark Homes, Meridian Homes, John Willis Homes, Benchmark Homes and many more home builders.

We can help clients find short term apartments for rent but normally we don't work with clients who are just looking for rentals.  We do help clients find Atlanta condos.  We can also help you purchase HUD homes in Atlanta.  We are an authorized agent with them and have the HUD key to get into HUD homes.  We have access to foreclosure homes that banks want to sell.

We love showing executive homes and luxury homes. We always like to know how people find our site.  Send us an email and tell us which search term you used. Some terms that we might be found by are realty Atlanta, Ga homes, Atlanta realty, condos Atlanta, Atlanta realestate, Atlanta property, houses Atlanta, Atlanta realtors, Ga houses, or realtors Atlanta.  Maybe you found us by typing in Atlanta MLS listings, or Atlanta MLS search, or MLS Atlanta GA. Hopefully we don't come up under nursing homes or funeral homes.

It is always amazing to me how the Internet can allow total strangers to find each other and build new business relationships.  It truly is becoming a small, interconnected world.
