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

Friday, April 11th, 2014 at 9:02am. 30 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. 36 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. 25 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

Cumming GA New Costco Grand Opening scheduled for August 2014

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014 at 7:22am. 341 Views, 0 Comments.

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.
