Stabilization for the Markets and North Georgia Real Estate

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Well according to most of the talking heads this has been a long time coming and is based on decisions made years ago.  I am sure that by now you have heard explanations of how the housing downturn is at the root of all these problems.  It is intuitively obvious that a housing downturn affects the people directly involved in the process: buyers, sellers, real estate professionals, mortgage lenders, builders, construction workers, inspection companies, cabinet makers, building supply companies – the list goes on and on.  This provides impacts that you can see and feel in our local community.  We have not worked our way through this part of the problem, but there are some signs locally that we may have finally reached a level that we can work up from.

Life In North Georgia Supports Jasper Rotary Golf Tournament

Dateline:  Big Canoe Golf Course, September 17, 2008

Last Wednesday 144 golfers teed off in the 19th Annual Rotary Club of Jasper Charity Golf Tournament.  The weatherman had predicted clearing skies and rising temperatures, but he must have been a flat lander from down state because he missed the fact the mountains in North Georgia often capture the clouds and hold them and that is exactly what happened last week as we had a cool cloudy day and it was perfect weather for golf.  The Big Canoe course was in great shape ( as usual) and the golfers were in good spirit as they faced the challenging Big Canoe course.     Life In North Georgia blogger, Rotarian and local Realtor, Don Martin, supported the tournament by sponsoring a team and by providing the Grand Prize for the tournament give-away.

Bent Tree Realtor Caravan for September, 2008

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Each month the most active Real Estate Agents in Bent Tree tour new listings that have come on the market in the last 30 days.  It gives the REALTORS an opportunity to preview 7 or 8 listings in just a few hours and it gives the listing agent an opportunity to introduce their new listings to the agents that are actively working Bent Tree real estate.  I didn’t start this program, but I have been running it for the last 2 years.  Since I gather all this information and have a fresh look at the listings, I thought it would be a great opportunity to pass on a snapshot of the homes available in Bent Tree to my readers.  So once a month instead of a weekly update on sales I will deliver a summary of the caravan.  I hope you find it useful.  Some of the homes shown will be my listings; however, many will not be.  I will always provide the name of the company that has the home listed, but I show all homes and lots in Bent Tree and I will be glad to assist you if you need  information on any of the homes.
