Give Your Mother A Great Gift This Year

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy

Each month the Ferst Foundation ships over 1100 books to children here in Pickens County. These books are paid for entirely by the fund raising efforts of the Pickens County Ferst Action Team and the generosity of your friends and neighbors. Consider for just a moment that nationwide:

61 percent of low-income families don’t have a single book in the home suitable for a child.

71% of Georgia 4th graders do not read on grade level

Parents are four times more likely to read aloud to their children when given free books and encouragement

This program develops the habit of parent and child interaction that continues throughout the educational career of the child.

This year you could give your Mother a gift that will delight her and will help make your community a stronger, better, safer place to live. Please consider contacting the Ferst Foundation and making this year’s Mother Day a very special one for you, your Mother and your whole community.

Investment and Vacation Home Sales Surge in 2011

Monday, April 16th, 2012

We have been telling folks for months that activity in the local market was trying to recover. 2011 was actually one of my better years in total sales volume – admittedly, I reached that level with many smaller sales as opposed to fewer small ones. I am pleased to report that 2012 is continuing on the same kind of pace and home values are actually beginning to recover a little. Late last month the National Association of Realtors released the results of its survey of Investment and Vacation Home Buyers and they confirm a national trend to support what we are seeing locally.

The sale of vacation homes grew a respectable 7% in 2011, the growth in investment homes surged an amazing 64.5% I will have local sales information from 2011 posted in a few days. If you would like to read the entire article from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) you can do so at this link: NAR Reports Investment and Vacation Home Sales Surge in 2011
