Although there was a freak early snowstorm in the Northeast here in Georgia Winter has not amounted to much more than a few frosty mornings. Here is it, the second day of January, and I still have a few peppers than can be harvested fro...

The question I have been asked most often in the last few weeks is: What is the outlook for the real estate market in 2012?

As a CSX Northbound freight rumbles past the old Madras Depot, the fate of the historic building is still in the hand of local benefactors. Built along the Atlanta and West Point Railroad in the mid 1850’s, the antebellum structure is in danger of being razed. The county has left the fate of this...

As the first chill of the season stealthily descended into Newnan Georgia last night, I turned on the furnace for the first time this year. It served as an unpleasant reminder that the cold, dark days of Winter are just around the corner. And although I can’t do anything about it, it is a bit dep...

Inventories of REO properties and HUD homes in Coweta County Georgia are at one of the lowest levels in years. In addition, the number of foreclosures advertised for sale on the courthouse steps is about a third of what it was at the peak of the madness. But what does this really mean for the Cow...

HUD homes for sale in Coweta County Georgia are becoming more scarce with each passing day. And while at first that seems like good news, it really has me thinking that there is foul play afoot, Because the number of foreclosures has not abated one has to wonder if the so called “shadow inventory...

Yesterday I went on a photography expedition to Chattahoochee Bend State Park. It’s Georgia’s newest state park, and it is located right here in Coweta County.

  Summer in Georgia is always hot, that’s a given! But the typical Summer weather pattern is one of both heat and humidity. That translates into hot days, and muggy nights punctuated with late afternoon and early evening thunderstorms. And typically that continues into October when the nights coo...

  I was out “in the county” yesterday previewing some properties. Coweta County Georgiais one of those locales that takes you directly from urban to rural is a few short miles.

These days, more than ever, it has become a lot more difficult to determine the value of a home’s intangible assets.

  Last night I had one of those experiences that restored my faith in humanity and proved that true champions still do exist. I was out in my 1990 red Miata when I noticed a “flop-flop” sound under the hood. I recognized the sign as a fan belt that was about to give up the ghost. I foolishly thou...

I had a call from a potential buyer that currently lives in a Northeastern state. As we delved into a conversation about the lifestyle in Newnan, he made an interesting observation: He said that after looking at many aerial photos of Newnan, he noticed that very few homes had swimming pools. I g...
