It's A Seller's Market - So Sell By Owner...Or Should You???

Friday, April 11th, 2014 at 9:02am. 24 Views, 0 Comments.

Is it really a savings to sell your home yourself?

  

Prices have increased about 10% in our area since last year and inventory is still low so you may be thinking, “I’ll sell this house myself!” On the surface, that sounds like a great idea, but is it? I’m not saying you can’t sell the house yourself because you may be able to. If it’s a great house and location you may be able to find a buyer with just a sign and some luck. The question isn’t can you find a buyer, but will you make more in the long run when you sell by owner? That’s why you want to do it on your own right? To save money. Why else would you endure the extra stress?

 

First, let’s think about the mentality of your buyer. He/She knows you are selling by yourself to avoid fees,

Selecting A Buyer's Agent - Cumming GA Homes

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 at 9:54am. 31 Views, 0 Comments.

Don't go home shopping without a buyer's agent!  Here are some tips on finding the best!

We have previously talked about the importance of having a buyer's agent.  The listing agent on a house you are thinking of purchasing is not working for you - they are working for their client, the seller.  And as such, they do not have you, the buyer's, interest in mind.  They are legally obligated to work for their client.  That is the main reason why you need a buyer's agent when purchasing a home: to have YOUR best interest in mind.  

So how do you find one; what exactly are you looking for in a buyer's agent?  The first thing you must have is TRUST.  Just like a doctor or a mechanic you need to trust that what they are telling you is the truth.  The Sherry

Time For Spring Gardening

Friday, April 4th, 2014 at 7:43am. 16 Views, 0 Comments.

Spring has arrived in Cumming, Georgia.  Cool mornings, warm afternoons, and everything is covered in pollen.  Time to break out the tissues and the gardening tools!  If you planned ahead and planted bulbs last fall, your garden is now bursting with color.  If you didn't, it is not too late to add some seasonal color.

Searching pinterest for ideas I came across "five weird and wacky gardening tips that work"! Here you go..

1. Use rusty nails for iron. Plants like azaleas, holly, and rhododendrons love iron.  If you keep a can of nails soaking in rain water, all you need to do is dump the rusty nail water on your plant as a fertilizer.  Then fill the can back up with water for next time.

2. Till in the moonlight. Yes, it's cooler. But this really

Yes, it's true - the new Costco in Cumming, GA will be opening August 2014.

Address to the Cumming, GA Costco location is 1211 Bald Ridge Marina Road, Cumming, GA 30041.

We previously provided information regarding a new Costco to be built in the Cumming GA, Forsyth County area.  You can find that article here.  Now that past blog is about to become a reality with the grand opening of the new Cumming GA Costco scheduled for sometime in August, 2014.

Being a loyal Costco customer, I'm anxiously awaiting the grand opening in Forsyth County.  I've made so many recommendations to friends and clients to shop at Costco that I've often been teased about being an outside sales rep for them.  I'm not - just a very satisfied and loyal Costco customer.

The Healthiest county in Georgia is Forsyth County - home to Cumming, Suwanee and Gainesville residents

For the second straight year, a study from the University of Wisconsin has determined that Forsyth is Georgia's healthiest county.  

The study uses factors such as obesity, smoking and alcohol consumption to determine the health level.  It aslo looks at socioeconomic factors such as the number of residents with health insurance, high school graduation rates and access to parks and clean air.  Community leaders are very pleased as they have been committed to keeping this designation.

County officials have taken the cue from the residents themselves who first and foremost take care of their own health.  They have asked for parks and greenspaces

Roswell Georgia Unveils Plans to Revitalize Downtown

Town Green To Be At Center Of Plans for Roswell Georgia

City leaders have made plans for a new town green and other public spaces with the hopes of bringing together the heart of Roswell - Canton Street - with the nearby government buildings.  The $12 million "Roswell City Green" will sit between City Hall and Georgia Highway 9 (where the Faces of War Memorial stands).

If you're thinking that $12 million is a lot to spend on a park, then you'll be pleased to know there is a bigger picture.  In other cities where a town plaza was developed with city money, the private sector followed behind with an investment a dozen times over.  All in all a great investment that everyone benefits from.

The plans for Roswell's town green include a water feature
