When moving with kids, below are some quick tips for before, during, and after the move.  The smoother the transition, the quicker your kids will adjust and accept the new home and community. Before the Move Communicate with your kids.  Tell them why, how, when, and where you are moving.  They will be anxious so help alleviate their concerns and fears by talking them through the process.     Get them involved.  Let them sort their own stuff, clean their room, prepare signs for a yard sale, and even mark the boxes that will go in their room. Provide information about the new community to spark their interest (i.e. parks, sports, school/community programs, etc.). Let them prepare a list of the features their new room could have.  If feasible/practical, take them with you on the house hunt...

You've been out looking and find that perfect family home, condo, townhouse, vacation house, rental property, etc. (you know the one that shines brighter than the rest in the neighborhood, has the perfect landscaping, and has all the bells-and-whistles), but, can you afford it?  Understanding your buying power puts you in a better negotiating position and will ultimately be a key determinant on home size, house amenities, and the neighborhood you will live in.  So, how do you find out what you can afford? Find a lender, or get a list from your Realtor®, and get pre-approved (preferably before you start looking).  During pre-approval a lender will examine your finances in detail and tell you how much they will loan you, the loan type, interest rate of the loan, your approximate monthly p...

Today in Warner Robins GA we have 941 active residential listings with only 74 bank or relocation owned properties.  The good news...92% of Homes for Sale in Warner Robins GA are consumer owned properties giving us a fairly stable real estate market.  A big part of that stability can be attributed to the constant influx of military/civilian personnel coming to Robins Air Force Base.  Although it has been difficult for buyers to get financing, many are making it through the process and becoming first-time or repeat home owners.   The bad news...I have been working foreclosures this year and all of those homes are aggressively priced to sell within 90 days.  Resale homes just can't compete.  As an example, I have a decent listing in a good subdivision that is right-priced to sell in today...

Warner Robins GA Buyers...Did you know the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACT Act) guarantees free access to your credit report once every 12 months from each of the 3 consumer credit reporting companies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.  If you're looking to Buy a Home in Warner Robins GA, it's important to know your FICO Credit Score.  Your FICO score is tabulated based on your credit history and along with your debt and income level help lenders assess your credit risk.  The FICO score range is 300 - 850; the higher the FICO Score, the lower the credit risk.  The report is free; the FICO score will cost a nominal fee.  It is a good idea to review your credit report annually and challenge (in writing) any debt attributed to you that you didn't create.  Also, if your rep...

Is all the new/modern technology a friend or foe to you?  How do you cope if you are not computer literate or know someone who is?  I remember when I bought my first home and the Realtor® carried around a printed list of the houses for sale in the area.  OMG, she didn't even have a cell phone or GPS device/system.  That's a long way from where we are today. Just this weekend I used my Droid to text, call, and GPS, used a USB Thumb Drive to transfer some files from my work PC to my laptop, used an external hard drive to backup my laptop files, printed on wireless printers at home/office, scanned to email, blogged/tweeted, resized/used filters on digital photos, began implementing a new IDX solution into my Homes for Sale in Warner Robins GA website, and synched my phone and laptop.  As s...

Visit the Warner Robins GA Train Depot adjacent to Robins Air Force Base on the corner of Watson Blvd and North First Street.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Georgia Southern & Florida Depot GA was built in 1943-44 to accomodate the exponential increase in activity in the region because of the newly established air base. It was a crucial hub for for the war effort and the town of Warner Robins literally grew up around the depot. Passenger and freight service continued until the depot was closed in 1970. It has since been renovated and is now the Warner Robins E.L. Greenway Welcome Center.  The center offers visitors information about local events and attractions as well as information about the state of Georgia. Adjacent to the welcome center is an old red...

I find it ironic that people think by putting a For-Sale-By-Owner sign in the front yard they can do my job.  I pride myself in the fact that I am a marketing specialist and am confidant I can provide better exposure than a home owner will get on their own.  I can screen buyers, network with other agents, interact with professional services, provide competent advice, and serve as a professional negotiator.  I am versed in contract preparation, can give staging tips, and am emotionally detached.  I can provide a realistic listing price based on facts, I know the demographics of your neighborhood and those you're competing with, and I can anticipate and respond to real estate questions/problems quickly.  I am available to show your home anytime, will never say too little or too much durin...

I came home from showing a client some houses today and found these squatters on my property.  We've worked out an agreement which allows them to stay rent-free as long as they keep the noise down.  The right one looks a little shifty so I'm going to be keeping my eye on them.

I've been a Realtor® for only 4 years so I would consider myself a relative newbie but for the life of me I don't understand why the market isn't flooded with buyers.  House prices are reasonable (in my area anyway), interest rates are incredibly low, and there is ample inventory (in my area).  Is it because lenders are being stingier with loans?  Appraisals coming in too low?  Everyone left have bad credit?  Something else? Choosing to buy a house NOW seems like the smart move to me.  You can live the American Dream, pay less than you would for rent, and build equity in your own home. If you snooze, you lose...or do you?
