While it might seem that way, with the really cool play structures, slides, swings and climbing walls... it really isn't.  After all, big kids (spelled a-d-u-l-t-s) gat the band shell and the tennis courts.  And then there are the walking trails.  There is a trail that surrounds the park, and there is also the access to the new Camp Creek Greenway trail.  And it is only set to get better as Lilburn follows its long-term plan.  The Camp Creek Greenway will connect the Lion's Club Park to City Park, and then continue to connect to the proposed Jackson Creek Greenway north of Olde Town.  In the future, there is a plan for these Greenways to interconnect and provide a scenic and safe walk alternative for a wide variety of destinations around Lilburn.   But there IS a place for Kids... So, t...

Parkview High School alum Eric Shanteau has made the US Olympic Swimming Team, competing in the 200 Meter Breast stroke. He finished 3rd in the 2004 Trials in both the 200m and 400m Individual Medleys, just barely missing the team. That, in an of itself, would be an amazing accomplishment. His list of swimming accomplishments is long and illustrious. Parkview High School records, Georgia State High School records... Take a look here... But, there is something else. Eric is fighting testicular cancer. At 24 years old. No whining. Instead, he is showing the same determination that has pushed him to acheive all that he has acheived. NBC published a story about him being inspirational. No doubt. He didn't tell anyone about it until after the Trials. BTW, his older brother Ryan, one of my cl...

While preparing for my new blog (snicker, snicker... teasing it now) I ran across an interesting PDF.  Lilburn, GA commissioned a real estate analysis to look at ways to revitalize the city.  Some of the recommendations have already been undertaken.  In fact, the family went wandering on one of the new walking trails across from the recently upgraded park, playground and city complex.  So, diving in to the plan (69 pages!) there are some pretty cool things to learn.  These would be especially good for entreprenuers and prospective shop owners, as well as developers and property investors.  While looking over the current business propfiles, RCLCO (the company that performed the study) also showed which types of businesses were needed or desired to best suit the direction the City of Lilb...

     It's easy to fix up your properties if you have unlimited cash. However, you need to keep your repairs to a minimum to stay profitable. You also need to keep your properties in good shape to attract tenants or buyers. There are the basic improvements, such as carpet and paint, but these can still costs thousands of dollars. The following are some inexpensive ways to improve your properties with very little cash.   #1) New Electrical Switch Plates   This is such a minor, yet overlooked improvement. Most rental owners and rehabbers paint a unit and leave the old, ugly switch plates. Even worse, some even paint over them.   New switch plates cost about 75 cents each. You can replace the entire house with new switch plates for about $20 -$30. For the foyer, living room and other obviou...

Does it seem odd to compare the disparate industries?  Real Estate and Restaurants... It is actually more of a contrast...  There is something that the real estate industry, from the giant franchises all of the way down to hyper-local "Mom and Pop" shops, could learn.  And it comes from all sorts of restaurant models.  I love McDonald's... It isn't that I think that the food is amazing (ok, I DO have a weakness for the Bacon and Egg Breakfast Bagel)... no, it is more about the fact that I can drive ANYwhere in the United States, from Lilburn, GA, to Moab, UT, or St. Paul, MN, and I know that I can get a 1/4 Pounder Value meal... and it will be the same.  (although the Bagel isn't available everywhere).  It will be made the same way.  The french fries will be cooked in the same oil and t...

We all know about the stock market crash of 1929.  Bubble heads have tried to compare the run up in housing prices to the stock market crash for the last several years.  Maybe they have a point... maybe not.  This isn't about that.  This is about what people DON'T know as often.  When I looked up the crash, one of the very first lines was this...  "The market did not return to pre-1929 levels until late 1954,[3] and was lower at its July 8, 1932 level than it had been since the 1800s." Source... But, the part that gets glossed over is that in order for that to be true, one would have had to have bought the Dow 30 at its very peak.  If one bought at the beginning of 1927, they would have recovered before the eve of World War II (only to get hit again as the world moved to war).  They wou...

There is a new subdivision coming up in Lilburn... and it looks great.  The Legends at Parkview  I stopped in tonight when the developer hosted a round table discussion for agents and mortgage bankers.  We talked about the philosophy of the builder, Mayfield Homes, as well as some of the finance options that are being offered on the properties.   First, a few basics.   The prices range from the low $500s up to the low $700s.  While there are nine different plans, each has several different elevations... and the builder is willing to modify any of them to better suit the needs of the buyer.  At the moment they are offering basement lots for the same price as slab lots.  In general, that amounts to about a $35,000 discount.  These discounts are expiring in March. Each of the plans feature...

Call me the King of Plan B… As always, I try to have a plan B.  This one still needs more development, but I am getting there. I have been trying to work with Parkview High School here in Gwinnett County for the last several weeks on a $1000 scholarship for a student blogger.  As part of this, I have had a couple of volunteer judges from the Active Rain real estate community agree to help sort through the entered blogs.  Further information about the criteria and the latest updates are here. Well, I am against a major roadblock.  Officials at the school have informed me that blogs are not allowed as part of the curriculum, and therefore cannot be part of a scholarship’s requirements.  I am still hardheadedly pursuing this concept.  I think there are some tremendous benefits for both the...

We just got back from a fun event. Ok, if I were a serious fan of Parkview, it might not have been as fun... but if I were a serious fan of Brookwood, it would have been a hoot. But, I'm not going to actually talk about the game, except in the most circumspect of ways. I want to talk about the event. Despite our best intentions, we didn't get up to Parkview High School until almost 7:15. Since the game was scheduled to start at 7:30, we thought it would be ok... and if it weren't for the fact that the average fan was parking no closer than Snellville (where everybody is somebody!), that would have been plenty of time. So, we saw people walking a mile away... and I was thinking that with a pregnant wife and a three year old, it wasn't going to be much fun making that hike... twice... sec...

...to a Senior at Parkview High School in Lilbun, GA.  Now we just need to see who it is.  Sometime next week I hope to announce the details, but I have decided to offer a $1000 scholarship for a graduating Senior at Parkview HS.  I hope that I am able to expand the program to some more schools in Gwinnett County in the next few years, but this is a start.  I'm meeting next Monday with the counsellor at the school that administers these types of things, and we are going to figure out the rules and requirements.  So, if you are a high school senior at Parkview, or know one... let them know.  There will be some qualifications, but they won't have anything to do with real estate or any other career choice.  It will also not be income restricted or based on GPA or other direct school perfor...

Lilburn Real Estate Market Report - Parkview High School DistrictAs of June 16, 2007 there are 314 Lilburn homes for sale or under contract in the Parkview High School district. The homes range in price from $1,250,000.00 to $129,900.00I feel that a market report should be broken down not just by city alone, but by High School district. This gives a more accurate look at an area. Many times people choose to live in areas according to school district.Currently the average home price available in the Parkview High School district is $284,807.00The average under contract or pending sale home price in the Parkview HS district is $225,883.00Since January 1, 2007 approximately 104 properties were sold in the Parkview HS district.

Over the last year I have had the privilege of selling 3 homes in Lilburn, Georgia within the Cedar Creek subdivision. I was both a listing agent and a buyer's agent. When I began in real estate, I decided that my customer service and use of technology would be what set me apart from other agents. And it has! I am continously researching Lilburn subdivisions to make sure that I am on top of list and sale prices. Those years of staying up past my bedtime have really paid off now. I often do research til 2am and the best part is I love every minute of it!Cedar Creek is actually located on both sides of Killian Hill Road in Lilburn. The central location to both I-85 and Highway 78 has made Cedar Creek one of the most sought after locales. Cedar Creek is approximately 4 miles to Hwy 78 (Sto...
