TUCKER GEORGIA REAL ESTATE GETS BOOST FROM EMORY UNIVERSITY AND CDC EXPANSIONS Recent expansions and job growth at Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have stimulated the housing market in Tucker, Georgia a suburban neighborhood a short commute away from the Clifton Corridor and the Emory Campus.  Tucker is served by MARTA and CLIFF commuter bus systems. Much of the housing in Tucker is priced under $250,000 and is affordable for first time home buyers.  Many homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s and are perfect for home buyers who need a low price barrier for purchase.  Brick ranches and two story traditional homes are available in the $250,000 price range.  These homes have great "bones" but many could use some updating in the kitchens and baths.  Hardwood flo...

NEEDED CASH FOR COLLEGE TUITION It is no secret the real estate market has been stuck in low gear.  However, my personal expenses have not geared down as quickly and I needed cash for one daughter's college tuition (Vanderbilt University) and another daughter's private school tuition (The Lovett School). PUT INVESTMENT HOME ON THE MARKET My husband Tim and I decided to put one of our investment properties on the market to generate some cash flow.  We had been renting this 1960s brick ranch for about 10 years and the tenant moved out in May (bought a new home nearby). HOUSE PREPPED FOR SALE: Tim got the house prepped for the market using all the advice and techniques I pass along to my sellers (www.englishteam.com).  New paint inside and out, lawn manicured, new light fixtures and fans, ...

 Atlanta Real Estate - First Time Home Buyers in Atlanta GA Once you've found your "dream home", you and your agent will write a purchase agreement.  In Georgia, the purchase and sale agreement was written by the Georgia Association of Realtors.   While much of the agreement is standard, there are a few areas you and your agent can negotiate: The Price  -- What you offer on a property depends on a number of factors, including its condition, length of time on the market, buyer activity, and the urgency of the seller. While some buyers want to make a very low offer, just to see if the seller will accept, this often isn't a smart choice, because the seller may be insulted and decide not to negotiate at all.  It's definitely a fine line and one that you and your agent will have to discuss a...

There were only 13 transactions in February which is extremely low. Total days on market shot up to 141 and the sales price to original list price ratiocontinues to trend lower, now below 90%.

As I stood in line, going down a narrow hallway with voters on both sides, waiting for the opportunity to cast our ballot, I approached a portion of the hall with restrooms and water fountains.  As I watched a woman take a drink from one of the fountains it symbolized the road we have traveled as a nation and I began to reflect. It wasn't that long ago where this picture told a story of where we were as a country.  As I spoke to the Jamaican man in front of me; listened to a Cuban woman talk about how long it's been since her last trip to Cuba; and get bits and pieces of a conversation about eating at a Chinese restaurant between a woman originally from Louisiana, who loved her Cajun roots, and a Black man, it solidified how much I appreciate this great state of Georgia and the United S...

I love my niche. I get to hang out with cars and the people that like them. So, Tucker is one of the suburb communities here. It is small-town America... minutes from big city. And Main Street is only a few minutes from my house. One Saturday each month through most of the year, the cars gather... and their people, too.     On July 12th they will have the next Tucker cruise-in.  Even though there were severe thunderstorms that rolled through the area earlier in the evening (made me late for the event), there were still 20+ cars that turned out.  Restorations, Rods, Rats, trucks, and customs. On a normal Saturday event, there might be 80 or more rides there.

Once it was called a "Buyer's Market" due to the inventory of homes for sale.  There were more homes for sale than buyers.  However, the market was still favorable, buyers' had their choices of morgage products.  However, in today's market, at least 145 mortgage companies have closed their doors, including the giant, Atlanta-based HomeBanc.  Many other mortgage companies are in danger of going under, adjustable rate mortgages are adjusting and many consumers are no longer able to meet the payments.  More and more households are teetering on the edge of foreclosure which is steadily increasing as a result of the current crisis.  Reality is settling in and the abundance of funds have decreased to a drip because of the investment risk.To make matters worse, homes weren't kept up because th...

Tucker, Georgia is a hidden treasure in Metro Atlanta. It is convenient to the city by way of the higways or major streets. It has great schools and wonderful neighbors. Have you ever been to Tucker? The small central city is as eclectic as the rest of it. Main Street has old town charm with its restaurants and small businesses. It's home to annual Main Street Festival every May and the Cruise-Ins featuring vehicles ranging from antiques to hot rods to motorcycles on the 2nd Saturdays from April to October. Tucker is approximately 20 minutes from everything, downtown via 85, Stone Mountain Park, Malls in Buckhead (Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza), Perimeter Mall, Gwinnett Place Mall, Northlake Mall, and just a little bit further to Discover Mills, Mall of Georgia, and Stonecrest Mall and ...
