Terry there are several scenarios. Depending where your house is, the hwy might make it more convenient and would add value. However, if it is going to literally be in your back yard where you back up to it, that would be a different story.

Personally, I would try to avoid putting it on the market if the construction traffic would cause an issue to get to your house. Many times lately clients have skipped houses if we get stuck in traffic unless they are familiar with the area.

Good luck with your plans!

Hi Mindy, Trulia doesn't allow FSBO homes listed manually. You would have to pay a premium for a flat fee listing service.

The NAR states that FSBO homes typically sell for an average of $184,000 compared to agent assisted homes at $230,000. That's a big difference! So selling with an agent will usually get you more money in the end, and it will sell faster with less hassle on you.

We created our service for home sellers looking for the best deal possible. Agents will compete against each other to earn your listing, so you're more likely to receive a great commission rate. You'll also be able to compare agents so you can select the best agent possible! There's no risk to try us out, and it's completely free for you!

Good luck!

There are 5 residential rentals currently listed on FMLS, Scotty, ranging in price from $1800 down to $850 per month. GA MLS shows 4 priced from $1800-1200, however, some of these are duplicate listings. You may also find other rentals not listed with an agent on either of these. Are you looking to rent a property as a lessor or lessee? Either way, please let me know if I may help. Good Luck!

Not all of the details of the Housing Stimulus package are fully disclosed at this point and you should consult a tax professional about your situation. The name first-time homebuyer is misleading, as anyone who hasn't owned a primary residence in the last 3 years may be eligible. There are income limits in either case of $75,000 for single filers and $150,000 for joint filers. There are also partial credits for those who earn up to $20,000 more about each of this filing statuses; I haven't seen or heard details on how the partial credits will be calculated. The credit is retroactive to purchases made April 9, 2008 and through July 1, 2009. In addition to the payback provisions others wrote, note that the loan will be forgiven if the profit of a sale doesn't cover the balance in full. ... more

Depending on where you Ballground you live it will probably take you about 1 hour and 20 minutes with no traffic and I would give yourself at least 1 1/2 hours just in case. However, if you will be traveling during rush hour it may take you over 2 hours! This is if you live close to I-575 and is highway travel time. Ballground is a beautiful place to live - it's in the foothills of the BlueRidge Mountains. ... more
