The Atlanta metro area continues to be one of the fastest growing areas in the Country. This week Forbes Magazine released their list of the ten fastest growing suburbs in America and Woodstock, Georgia came in at the number ten spot. Woodstock natives often refer to their city as "a place modern amenities meets olde time Southern charm." Maybe that's the reason so many individuals in the Atlanta area are choosing to make Woodstock their home.Woodstock Links:Olde Towne WoodstockThe Town of Woodstock WebsiteAbout Woodstock GeorgiaCherokee CountyNote: Forbes compiled this list by using U.S. Census growth data from 2000 to 2006 that was provided them by Demographia, a St. Louis-based research firm.

Of course, no one wants to put anymore money into the home than they 'have to'.  Oh, I got that loud and clear!  It seems it's the first words uttered when I arrive to do consultations or give an estimate.  So, with a trusty consultation report guide in hand, I make my list of all necessary and recommended changes to be made.  Even when there isn't a budget to work with, I always take into consideration the costs and usually give two or three reasonable options to choose from, when making recommendations to update or change.  This particular home won't be listed for another year or so and the homeowners have decided to tackle the DIY upgrades themselves, as they can afford it.This Master Bathroom is in a home that'll eventually list for somewhere between $225,000-$250,000 over the next ...

It's amazing sometimes to think that if we take a day off we feel guilty about it! I find myself needing to explain if I just want a day off. I think it came about because of the fact that when a holiday comes around, as an example, Mother's Day, that there always seems to be that one person that wants to see a house right then, can't do it tomorrow, but has to do it today.I sit around complaining that my listings aren't getting showings but then after no showings for days that call comes right after you eat dinner, sit down to relax and they want to go now. Or, that family get together, like Memorial Day, and someone wants to see your listing in the next hour! Even worse to me is Sunday AM, which I am in church, others probably are sleeping, but I get a call, usually from another agent...

 I just started flipping through a new book that my mother sent me, Color Your Life by Elaine Ryan.  Although I haven't gotten too far into the book, it begins with explaining why we choose, or don't choose, certain colors in our homes.  She mentions how most of use have been trained to rely on white or beige because it's a safe choice. For Home Staging purposes, yes, those neutrals are the best choice because it is attractive to the masses and it is safe.   For actually living in the home...colors personalize it.  Most of the reasons pertain to how we were brought up and there is a ton of reference to dear old MOM...she is usually the ultimate reason why we do what we do and choose what we choose.  Isn't that true about everything!  LOL  Isn't mother's approval over whatever you do the...

While I am a fairly new member of the home staging industry, I am not new to merchandising things to sell, which, essentially, is what staging a home is.  My experience in merchandising is taking, say, a pair of jeans and making it a complete lifestyle.  One week those jeans might be paired up with sweats and sneakers, the next week they might be paired up with heels and dressy tops, the following week they might be paired up with sweaters and boots.  The jeans didn't change but what did change was how they were merchandised.  The sales of those jeans would fluctuate depending upon what the target audience responded best to.  If the target audience was a college aged market, the sales would increase the week they were paired with sweats and decrease the week they were paired with heels ...

Every few days, I click through listings searching for my next prospective client.  I love the FSBO listings the most because the homes are typically in the same condition:  A) Vacant (which tells me it's usually an investment property) or B) Occupied, that an attempt was made at cleaning it up.  For my company, ALR Home Staging and Showcasing, I prefer to streamline my prospective target clients and handpick them myself rather than target every single homeseller out there. When I come across those vacant properties, I analyze each room and take mental notes of what the room needs to be staged.  For sure, that home gets added to my list of mailers!  If you are a selling a house without a realtor and it's vacant, invest in home staging!  For a fairly minimal cost, you can get the home fu...

Coming up on my 10 month anniversary here as a resident of Woodstock, GA I can say that I am HOME, for sure.  Being born and raised in the same 2 mile radius of NYC for my entire life, I expected complete culture shock when I moved here.  Luckily, I can say, I have adjusted very well to my new surroundings and I love it here.  The people are nice.  The homes are nice.  The schools are good.  The weather's better than NY.  Yes, I'll stay for awhile!I love my neighborhood: Towne Lake.  It took me awhile to understand the reference to the Loop: how Towne Lake Parkway wraps around the neighborhood from one end to the other.  Ironically, or not, most of the subdivision entrances of Towne Lake can be found off of Towne Lake Parkway.  For a newcomer, like myself, it made it easy to get around ...

When attending art school, one of the topics covered, usually in a class of it's own, is COLOR.  How crazy, right?  Really---what is the importance of taking a whole class about color?  Well, look around!  It's amazing the role color plays in our world and what it says about us as individuals.  We use color to describe us from our clothing, our cars, our haircolor (LOL), our home's interior, our home's exterior, our furniture, etc.  Think about it, though.  What would our lives be like if it were all black and white?  Color plays a significant role in the emotional impact the homes possess.  Take, for example, a home that has an interior painted with very vibrant HUES* of red, yellow, blue and green.  The first thing that comes to mind is juvenile artwork and crayons.  Chances are there...

Home owners that are listing their homes on the real estate market should always consider home staging services.  Statistically, homes that have been staged will get a higher selling price than those that are not.  Homes that have been staged also sell faster than those that are not.  Why wouldn't someone get their home staged?  Typically, the common complaint is that the home owner doesn't want to spend any more money on the house.  The mantra includes they are moving, they don't have the money, they want to spend the money on the new home, etc.  What the home owner doesn't know, or understand, is that home staging pays for itself, plus some!  Who can't afford to invest for a bigger profit?  And, time is money...let's not forget that!  The faster that home sells, everyone benefits...th...

Countries all over Europe have embraced and implemented the roundabout to solve traffic issues for many years and now Woodstock wants to emulate this solution to traffic congestion. While I doubt Chevy Chase will ever get stuck viewing the landmarks from a roundabout in Woodstock, he may find that getting around downtown will be much easier in the future.The Cherokee Ledger-News recently reported...The roundabouts tentatively would be located at Mill St. and Towne Lake Parkway, Neese Road and Arnold Mill, and perhaps near Columbia Creek apartments on Arnold Mill. ‚ÄúWe would almost create an east/west main street through the downtown area,‚ÄĚ said Richard McLeod, director of planning and economic development for the city. McLeod presented the council with a conceptual design of what would b...

Martha Stewart joins KB Homes in building a community called Wynchase in Woodstock, GA.  This is the second Martha Stewart/KB Homes community in metro Atlanta.  The first one, Hampton Oaks, opened in July of this year in Fairburn, GA.Wynchase is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2007 and will have 183 homes.  Prices will start in the high $200,000's.I wonder what accessory line might be shown to us in the model home?
