Warner Robins, GA is one of the best places in the US to buy a home.  The ranking, according to a  study by Wallet Pop on MSNBC.COM, was due largely to Warner Robin's affordable homes, strong economy, convenient location and wonderful amenities.   According to the study... "Located midway between Atlanta and Savannah, Warner Robins' housing affordability is the big draw. The median price of a home is $110,000, while the median family income is about $63,000. That leaves some extra dough to hit the local aviation museum, motor speedway and golf club. The city's main employer is the military (home of Robins Air Force Base), bringing engineers and employees from around the globe, so the population is eclectic. The city fared well during the recession." High rankings are nothing new to War...

Established in 1821, Warner Robins was initially a farming community called York.  In 1865 the railroad came and established a route north to Macon GA.  The town was so appreciative, it changed its name to Wellston in honor of the railroads chief engineer.  In 1941, the U.S. Air Force established a military depot in Wellston and the depot eventually grew into Robins Air Force Base (RAFB).  RAFB covers 6,400 acres and is Georgia's largest single employer, providing an important economic boost to central Georgia.  In 1943, Wellston was renamed Warner Robins.  Both Robins AFB and the city are named after Brigadier General Augustine Warner Robins.Since 1968, the city has been officially designated Georgia's "International City" because of the diversity of the inhabitants.  Always willing to...

"So, what schools are the best in town?", was one of the first questions my new buyers asked me yesterday afternoon before we went out viewing houses.  It was a simple question, asked innocently by customers who I believe want the best education for their children.  Unfortunately, I was unable to provide a direct answer to their question because my opinion could have been construed as steering which is a violation of The Fair Housing Act. I clearly explained why my opinion could unfairly sway them to/away certain neighborhoods and fortunately they understood.  As I always do, I provided them with the web address to two sites that could help them make a more informed school decision based on their families needs.  Houston County Board of Education - The authoritative source for schools i...

Just prior to a recent closing, the soon-to-be homeowner asked me, "What proves I own this house?"  Good question, that I answered this way... In Georgia, at closing the transfer of title/deed is signed over to you by the seller.  Because you have a mortgage, the title/deed is held by the lender.  Within 30 days after closing you should receive a copy of the warranty deed.  The warranty deed is a guarantee made by the seller that the title is clear and they have authority to sell the property.  Keep your copy of the warranty deed in a safe place. I also recommended that 60 days after closing the buyer should check the county courthouse records to make sure the title has been recorded in their name.  Many offices now provide the ability to perform this check online. As a failsafe in-case...

With apologies to Popeye..."Shiver Me Timbers", it's mighty cold outside today.  You see, living in middle GA we don't get much snow, not even the tainted yellow variety.  That changed today. We are in the midst of a full-fledged, five alarm, batten-down-the-hatches, BLIZZARD!  Yes, a blizzard.  With 3/4 of an inch of SNICE (snow/ice) blanketing the ground, any minute I'm expecting to see National Guardsmen telling us to stay inside.  No argument here; it's doubtful we'd even be able to get the doors opened because of the SNICE bank that's forming. Luckily, we still have the Christmas box of sausage/cheese that someone re-gifted to us so there's no chance we'll starve.  Caught a break there!  Even the cats can sleep with both eyes shut...no Donner Party activity on my watch.  Can you sh...

Do I Need a Termite Bond?  Recently a client asked me this question while we were previewing a home.  Living in the south where termites are a major problem, my response was it is always advisable for a buyer to have a termite inspection.  While they are typically required by the lender, technically in Georgia, a Termite Bond is not required to sell a property.  However, I always do my due diligence and advise my buyers to obtain a new or assume an existing bond.   A Termite Bond is a contract between a homeowner and pest control company, effective after an inspection has been accomplished and any treatment performed.  Treatments for termite recurrence are free for the life of the bond.  An annual inspection is typically included and many companies also provide damage compensation (they...
