A local Realtor can give you this information. Not certain why you're looking for comparable for 2012, generally speaking the value of comps drops significantly beyond 6 months. The only reason to look back at 2012 is for historical perspective on the market. ... more

Two suggestions.

First, I'm sure there are. I've written a blog on how to find rent-to-own homes. See

Second, I was contacted yesterday by someone about 30 miles from you, on the other side of Atlanta, who has a single-family home, nice subdivision, who wants to offer it as a rent-to-own. I'm getting more information on that property this evening. (So I don't know yet how many bedrooms, baths, etc., or what the monthly cost would be.)

If that's something you might be interested in, just let me know.

Was looking to relocate to Georgia.... Was wondering if Douglas county is a flood zone, or have it ever been flooded?

The reason is that there is very little profit on a $35,000 loan. The profit a mortgage company makes is a percentage of the loan amount. So the larger the loan the larger the profit. Check your local banks and credit unions. They will usually do it ... more

Usually your local bank will do those low loan amounts. That would be the first place I would check

No the home wasn't damaged at all in the floor. In fact, the owner has made several improvement to the home. A new built-in microwave, a new larger deck, new thermal pane windows, enclosed the carport into a garage, and a new 30 year architectural roof in 2010. Plus, the septic tank was replaced in 2006. It is a really nice home and a great buy. If you are interested in seen photos or seeing inside, let me know. I can email you photos of the inside, or if you would like to see inside, we can make arrangements for that as well. ... more

There are a lot to consider when putting your home for rent. If you have the time, skill and gut to deal with tenants then manage your self. If you don’t, hire a professional property manager like Anne at Solid Source Property Management. Call her at 770-416-1444 and you’ll thank me later when you don’t have the headaches of the typical self landlord.

Primarily - someone over 50 years old that needs a home.

The 50 plus market is one of the fastest growing demographic for real estate. Folks that have raised their kids - or recently retired are looking for homes like this.

There has been a lot of new construction with deed restrictions based on age in the last 10 years.

Good Luck!

Christi answered:
Thank you for all your advice. There were so many foreclosures in our neighborhood that resales were being overlooked. After two years on the market, our house finally sold this week. Now two more homes in the neighborhood are going to foreclosure. I have never missed a payment, sent one late, etc. even for the last two years making two payments. It is not easy buying the American dream. SO I'm glad that nightmare is over. ... more

Hi Christi -

Homes fail to sell for one of three reasons: EXPOSURE - PRICE - APPEAL. Before you start offering bonuses get your agent to detail how the home is being marketed. It better be out there for buyers to find as well as agents - I sell about half of my homes from buyer hits alone. Next is appeal - would you buy your home as it sits? What is there to exploit and what is there to overcome? Last is price - if it's overpriced forget it. The market cares not what you paid, think, or owe - buyers will tell you what it's worth right now. If you're not getting traffic through the door then look at each of these issues.

I've been doing this since '89 - I'm an associate broker as well as certified appraiser. We're selling homes and doing fine even in this market - have a look - I can give you a desk top opinion if you like. This isn't rocket science :) Hank - 678-428-8276
