This closing gift idea for Atlanta short sale buyers was inspired by this listing photo of a Jonesboro GA short sale I closed last winter.Starting with a good frontal shot of the property -- here, I used the main listing photo which was used in the MLS -- a little artful digital manipulation in a photo-editing program produces the bright and cheerful image.After changing such elements as color intensity, brightness, contrast and choosing among an array of effects, I ended up with the above image. The frame effect was also added within the editing app.Notice there is room in the bottom third of the image for inserting a message, so this image could now be further refined in a free program such as Canva.com or perhaps a card-making template in MS Publisher to add some text, such as..."Cel...

Jonesboro GA Foreclosure Solutions Are you a Jonesboro GA homeowner grappling with the threat of losing your home to foreclosure? I’m publishing this updated article to let you know there is more than one way out of a bad situation. You may still have some choices that could help you avoid Georgia foreclosure. In fact, many metro Atlanta GA sellers remain underwater in their mortgages despite the recent market corrections. Although most areas have regained lost equity, others have been slower to recover. For families facing economic hardship in some Jonesboro GA neighborhoods, a quick equity sale is not an option because they still owe more on their mortgage than the current market value of the property. You are not alone. In some Georgia communities, the specter of foreclosure is still...

Can't decide whether to short sell your Clayton County house now or  wait and see? If you need to sell now but think that you can’t because you owe more on the property than you can get for it in today’s market, a short sale might be you BEST answer. Still undecided?

My favorite spot not in the house.   When I began to think about what makes my home “sweet” home, my two favorite spots to work came instantly to mind.   At first I thought my favorite thing might be my back patio. That’s my preferred place to work, weather permitting. And Georgia’s mild climate kindly permits me to grab my laptop and work out there in the fresh air quite often, serenaded by the songs, sightings and sounds of nature all around me.   A close runner up would be my home office because it’s right above my patio, and the desk is placed so I can gaze right out of the window and into the tree tops to be entertained by the bright flash of birds flitting about and squirrels leaping from limb to limb while I work.   But drilling down to the common denominator, I realize, my exact...

Day 12 - 12/12/11 - Today we held our annual Christmas luncheon at the Jonesboro GA office of Solid Source Realty GA. It was, as always, a wonderful time of breaking bread and swapping stories among the brokerage family. The food and the company were great, and our broker, Michele Velechek announed our newest project. We have identified 25 children out of the 125 families that received a Solid Source Thanksgiving meal that we will be providing Christmas gifts for as a token of love from God to these children in dire need.     That's the way we do it at Solid Source, y'all!   I feel truly privileged to be a Jonesboro GA real estate agent in the Solid Source family – especially when we come together to make things like this happen!
