Another home closing in Midtown Atlanta

Super excited for our clients Dennis and Pat on the purchase of their custom renovated 3 bedroom condo in Midtown. We can't decide what is our favorite feature - it's a toss up between the 3 private balconies and the separate shoe closet (or the fact that we were able to negotiate $14,000 of of the list price for our clients).
905 Juniper in Atlanta (Midtown neighborhood near Piedmont Park) just gained some amazing new residents!


We look forward to helping you or those you know buy your next property!

Atlanta's Official Neighborhoods

Atlanta is often called a city of transplants -- i.e a lot of residents not from the city or even born in Georgia -- and we always refer to this map when educating our clients to the official neighborhoods in the actual City of Atlanta.

Click on a neighborhood to get more information about it.



From the City of Atlanta on Neighborhood Planning Units:
The City of Atlanta is divided into twenty-five Neighborhood Planning Units or NPUs, which are citizen advisory councils that make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on zoning, land use, and other planning issues.  The NPU system was established in 1974 to provide an opportunity for citizens to participate actively in the Comprehensive Development Plan, which is the city's vision for the n. ...

How the Largest Interest Rate Spike Since 2013 Affects Homebuyers and Sellers

Regardless of your opinions about the campaign trail, election, or its results, I’m betting most of you have own a home, have owned a home in the past, or plan to in the future. And what I want to talk about is interest rates, forecasts, and real estate buying power, and how it affects both sellers and buyer alike.
 
Higher rates lowers the price buyers can pay and sellers can sell for
I’ll cut to the chase. For every 0.5% (one-half percent) rise in mortgage interest rates, buyers purchasing power decreases 4-5%, and if it spikes by a full 1% it results in a 9-11% decrease in buyers purchasing power.
 
Now before you freak out, know that in the grand scheme of things 0.5% is a blip on the radar, granted a costly one if you want to buy a nice home or sell your home to the widest pool of buyers.
