Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.
Image via Wikipedia I was at a real estate conference last week, and one of the things the presenter said REALLY struck a chord with me. Ten years ago, WE used to tell our clients which houses we were going to look at that day.  Now, THEY come in and tell us which houses we are going to see. Obv...
Image via Wikipedia I was just online grabbing a few numbers for the upcoming market reports for Gwinnett County, GA.  Starting around 12/16/10, we will rolling out the reports for Lilburn, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Suwanee, Sugar Hill, Buford and Norcross, GA.  The reports are pretty in-depth.  Th...
Last year I wrote a nice little post about Lilburn...  This is a really nice place to live, and I thought it might be fun to dive into the history of the town.  It certainly is interesting, as are the histories of many of the localities around Gwinnett County, GA.

Image via Wikipedia Ever since they were first introduced, Zillow's 'Zestimates' have created a stir.  Some herald them, while other decry them.  But, Zillow's Zestimates are a great tool for homeowners and those looking at buying, whether they are familiar with the area or not. But the Zestimat...
Image by dannyfowler via Flickr Listening to the NAR (National Association of Realtors®, it is ALWAYS the right time to buy.  If the market is going up, they pound the "buy the rising market" drum.  If the market is going down, they beat on the "buy into value" drum.  Frankly, I'm tired of it, a...
Image via Wikipedia Lilburn, GA, is a great place to live.  There are some great schools, and the community is both close knit and welcoming. Parkview High School is one of the highest rated schools in Georgia... and it has been for decades.  The feeder schools, like Trickum Middle School and Ar...
Image via Wikipedia So, let's get to the numbers and try to get a handle on what they mean. At the end of October, 2010, there were 6,138 homes on the market in Gwinnett County, GA.  As expected, there has been a general upward trend in the number of listings all year, but that was slowing... as...
Image via Wikipedia Gran Prix... and I'm not talking about Pontiacs, here. The absolute beginnings of motorsport are rooted in Gran Prix (or Grand Prix) racing... and those roots date back to the 1890s, with the point to point road races, like Paris to Rouen.   Shortly after that, circuit racing...
Image via Wikipedia Market stats for Norcross, October, 2010 indicate that there were 390 properties on the market. Overall, there is about a 8.5 month supply of properties. October and September sales were down v 2009 (42 v 57 and 43 v 55), but August was way up (52 v 43).  Overall, the market ...
Image via Wikipedia I talk about Absorption Rates all of the time...  In fact, in at least 8 posts a month (all of my market report posts) Absorption Rates play a key role.  Understanding what they are and why they matter is a key part of understanding my market reports. Last year I wrote an in-...
