Now quench the drought of melodyWith babbling, gurgling harmony,And hearken to the ancient chorusPerformed each day and set before us!  (R Weisser 2014) It seems that everything is changing rapidly these days. Our immersion in technology infiltrates every facet of our existence. But there are things that are pretty much the same as they were a thousand years ago. The sound of a river crashing over rocks. The stars in the night sky. A gentle breeze on a sultry day. Now I might use technology to record these examples. But they exist independently without any intervention from me or technology!   And will continue to do so long after we are gone!

As a REALTOR, I am frequently asked the question these days: “How’s the real estate market?”REALTORs are in a precarious position when asked about the condition of our local real estate market. After all, REALTORs are salespeople. For the most part, REALTORs are paid on commission. REALTORs get paid for their work  only when they bring a buyer and seller together and “close the deal”.If the REALTOR is working for a Buyer, then there is plenty of home inventory to choose from at a great price, and loans are available at historically low interest rates. Lately the glass is more than half-full. It’s running over.Conversely, if a REALTOR represents a seller with a property listing who, despite market conditions cannot or will not lower the price of their property to sell it, then the glass ...

The homebuyer tax credit is one of 10 key provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act signed by President Obama into law on Feb. 17, 2009.The bill provides for a $8,000 tax credit that would be available to first-time home buyers for the purchase of a principal residence on or after January 1, 2009 and before December 1, 2009.  The credit does not require repayment.  Most of the mechanics of the credit will be the same as under the 2008 rules:  the credit will be claimed on a tax return to reduce the purchaser's income tax liability.  If any credit amount remains unused, then the unused amount will be refunded as a check to the purchaser.

I will be pulling the foreclosure data from even more sources in the next few days to update the blogs postings I did earlier in the week for both Habersham and White Counties! I have noticed that some foreclosure listings go pending/under contract at the  time of listing. I will be adding the present status to the posted information! If you are not familiar with the blog you can see the title of all the blog posts if you click on the month to the right side of the blog!

Both the Habersham County and White County posts on this Blog will be up dated weekly some of the homes may be under contract, but so many pending contracts are not going to closing, so I have opted to only note the ones that have actually gone to closing and SOLD!

The Moonshine HighwayWallace Wenn             The making of moonshine, or unlicensed liquor distilled from corn, was a common business throughout the South, particularly during the tough years of the Great Depression.  It was a business that required little in the way of capital, and the production center needed only a bit of privacy and distance from centers of legal activity, otherwise known as police stations.  It was also a help if the neighbors could be trusted not to pry into matters of no concern to them.  The climate for such a business was perfect in the lonely, northern regions of mountainous Habersham County.              Of course, a product must be able to reach a market, so transport of the distilled moonshine became almost an art form, and gave birth to a major national s...
