Hey Garrett,

The reason Rent to Own listing sites charge a small fee is because they do the legwork in filtering out all other types of homes and make sure that the properties you find on their site are in fact rent-to-own (yes there are sites that say such property is RTO, but upon contact with the seller you find it's not). We have access to such properties and we would be more than happy to help you search for an RTO home in Duluth for a very small fee, at most $2. We also spend a lot of time helping people get their credit together so we'd love to be able to help your credit situation as well. Please call us at 231-568-1540, this is my direct number. I'll wait for your call!

That is one of the most desirable in our state! Properties like yours often appeal to empty nesters, busy professionals and others. But the property could make your breakfast, serve it to you in bed, clean itself and still not sell if you haven't priced it properly or effectively communicated the value.

Remember the marketing mix from school?

Product - Have you kept the property clean, show ready and allowed for showings?
Price - Does the price align with other similar properties that have sold in the area?
Place - Has the story been told about all that your community and Duluth offers?
Promotion - Are you finding the property at various sites online, signage and post cards?

Finally, have you seen two listing numbers for your property (due to the two local services)?

Hopefully, you can have an insightful discussion with your agent on the right adjustments to get your home sold.

If your rental history is with an apartment or property management company, they will take that into consideration to offset your credit. If you don't have housing collections from previous apartments, I would just be prepared to possible pay a higher deposit. Check out to see if they have any properties you may be interested in. ... more

Take your written LEASE with you to your attorney's office. Get legal advice.

If you have been renting month to month - get ready to move - soon.

Hank Miller answered:
I was trying to think of a more vague question but failed to do so. Lee pretty much summed it up...

Define recovery. And while doing that, define the submarket. And after doing that establish the price point, home characteristics and other locational influences....schools, developments....

Then after that, define the time period that you're analyzing that will be credible to forecast into the next two years. Consider the national and local economy and the impact of bulk investors on the area. Might also consider the mortgage rates and any local projects underway or on the books that may influence value 18-24 months out....which leads me to ask - when in '14? Jan April, Nov?

And one rather big final question - what data are you using? MLS, public records, local, national? Not all transfers are noted in all data bases. Public records will ultimately record everything but often months later - and they don't have anything data friendly to search efficiently.

Bottom line is no one is going to forecast anything. The very best you can hope for is a sound review of PAST data with a cautious eye toward a couple of months to the future. Consider that many can't even agree on what's happened, never mind what might down the road.

But......since you asked about Johns Creek, the quick and dirty:

Solid area, desirable and economically sound. Dropped like the rest but anchored by outstanding schools, strong economics and locational appeal it is doing better than most Atlanta areas - will give you a look at Altos Research for the market. And note - Johns Creek data is a mix of a few zip codes...did I mention that as yet another variable?

Hi Evelyn...FYI this property ,Sold at the court house in September 04 2012 for $929,824 The bank that owns the property is Nationstar Mortgage. It will probably take a few more months, before the property comes in the market. I can put you in an automatic alert if you wish to.

Please let me know if I can help.

Definitely get legal advise. Realtors are not attorneys and the best thing any of us can offer up to you is, "Seek legal counsel."
