My dog, Pip and I snuck out for a nice walk along Hurakan Creek on the walking trails here in Legends of Settendown before the next wave of snow and ice hits! Stay warm and drive safe!

One of the great features of life in Cumming, GA is Lake Lanier. This huge lake provides water sport and fishing opportunities to several counties beyond Forsyth County. Ryan Coleman is a long-time guide on Lake Lanier (Ryan's website). This is the most recent video of his on fishing Lake Lanier. Sure it's a bit infomercial, but Ryan is a guide I've used quite a bit and he's always put me on fish. This video does more than introduce you to a bait by SpotSticker. Ryan shows you a great flippin'-n-skippin' to use that bait or any other skippin' type bait. This looks fun enough that I may actually take a try at dock fishing later this year when the winter and spring striper fishing dies down a bit. 

If you get to the area, enjoy fishing and want to have a great chance of getting into a mess of 'em, give Ryan Coleman a shout... and tell him I sent ya!

*Bring down those walls, Mr. Homeowner! *
Solid example of how trans-formative an open floor plan, great room approach can be. Want to update an older house with serious impact? Get that kitchen opened out onto the rest of the house! Not exactly a new idea, but I've recently seen some potentially great houses marred by this having not yet been done.
A couple with two little kids was stoked to snatch up a midcentury Eichler home in Mountain View, California. But before they moved in to the classic midcentury home, they wanted to make a few updates that would open and brighten the off-white and tan interiors. Previous homeowners had roofed over an atrium, which had turned it into an awkward indoor space. Sliding glass doors that once exited to the outside separated two interior rooms. Meanwhil...

Oil Prices as Time Travel Device
The drastic drop of oil prices has a huge ripple effect on the entire economy including, as this article points out, mortgage rates... initially one direction, later in another. The ripples aren't just from one industry, oil, to another industry such as financial rates, but the ripples are through time. So while the initial effect may be to lower mortgage prices, over time cheaper oil will likely heat up the overall economy putting upward pressure on rates.

If you are interested in striking while rates are low, now's likely a good time before the ripples get ahead of you!
The headlines agree mortgage interest rates have dropped substantially below initial projections. Many who are considering purchasing a home, or moving up to their dream home, might think that they should wait to buy, because rates may continue to fall.

Marketing Plan That Works!
From listing to multiple offers & under contract in 13 days!

Frankly, this beautiful home did most of the “work” aided by great sellers who followed our marketing plan to the letter!

The real estate market is indeed recovering, but not yet settled into a smooth groove. Consequently, having the right marketing approach is important to overcome uncertainty and rapidly changing expectations while achieving your goals in the sale of your home.

Contact me for a free consultation and find out how we can put the same plan to work for you!

Staging is About Storytelling
“The average staged home spends 57 fewer days on the market (45 vs. 102 days) than a comparable un-staged property.”

People love a story. They particularly enjoy their own story and obviously want it to be happy and comfortable. Staging is a term of the theater. Theaters are where stories are told.

What story do buyers see when they walk through your theater, yours or theirs? Even if it is theirs will it be a happy story or one of “gotta paint this”, “gotta replace that”?

Effective staging moves beyond removing objections, as important as that is, and takes customers to where they see themselves and their family living life. Staging is theater in helping the viewer enter a new space and be told a story. In this case, they have a story they want to play in their head and staging is simply making it easy for that story to be joyful, relaxing and with a happy ending… for them and you!

Recent experience in staging: I've shown a house several times this week that is excellently staged. Enthusiastic feedback and return visits with spouses are one of the benefits of a well staged house in a busy market. Once you have one spouse having seen an exciting story, they will share it! You know you're staging is effective when you hear prospective buyers discussing family activities taking place in various rooms and even beginning to maneuver for claiming of bedrooms.

When your agent suggests you invest in staging, it is money with a quantitative ROI to you!

Headline: Anthem Data Breach!

Sub-head: Another Day, Another Data Breach Story: Panic / Yawns ensue.

Are you one of those that panics and runs to shut down your devices vowing to never go on the internet again when one of these stories hits? Or are you understandably hardened to this kind of news such that you yawn, shrug and move on?

Reality is that there’s no need for panic, but you certainly shouldn’t move blithely forward without taking some action. There are a gazillion articles out there about all the bazillion things you can do to secure yourself. Given that this is a real estate related blog, I’d like to focus on just two:

1) One that protects your identity and hence, your credit score and then
2) One that can protect you throughout your online life.

Several interesting news items in the February 2015 Forsyth County Newsletter including this from the Commissioner’s Corner Note from the Forsyth County Georgia February Newsletter:
Forsyth County is known for all of our great parks, beautiful green space and active community involvement. All of these elements played a role in an award the county recently received. Forsyth County was presented with the Community Improvement and Greening Award as part of the 36th Annual Keep Georgia Beautiful Awards.

The Community Improvement and Greening Award that was presented to Forsyth County recognized our efforts to preserve and improve the beauty of our community, including outdoor environmental education, enhancement of public areas, community gardens, bike paths and pedestrian walkways, and working with the public and with community organizations.

This is, without doubt, my favorite restaurant on the planet and I've been from everywhere from San Francisco to South Korea to Thailand to India, Italy, England... you get the idea. After experiencing this place on our first trip to Italy my only input to my wife, who planned our second trip with her parents was, "Just so long as I get to eat 2 dinners at Taverna di San Giueseppe, I don't care what else we do on the trip". I wasn't wrong. We called and advised we were returning customers and bringing our parents. They treated us to a special cheese and honey testing in their cellar and we had two back to back excellent meals. That makes me 3/3 on my visits here. I recommend Taverna di San Giueseppe to everyone I hear headed to Italy whether they plan on hitting Siena or not. If not, change your plans and get to Siena for dinner at Taverna!
