I mailed "Just Sold" cards some years back at the insistence of my broker at the time and will tell you that It generated nothing .

I believe it's a form of marketing that assumes a lack of knowledge or intelligence on the part of the people of the community, for neighbors generally know the details surrounding a real estate transaction, including when a property sold and the purchase price.

Furthermore, we live in the computer age and that information is easily obtainable online

Bottom line, it is an attempt to send the message that an agent, or brokerage, is somehow better that the other agents working within the community.

Karen, what's a "Kiddie Condo" ? you questions are not very clear. Is the house a multi-family? duplex?
You realize that Grant Park is zoned Historic. So, work done to the property needs to be permitted and approved by the Urban Design Commission (UDC) of Atlanta. Most contractors know this and have additional 'work' involved with this..... so it might not be 'cheap. hope this helps. ... more

Heather - I am not aware of a site of this type. I will be happy to generate a category on my blog for Atlanta Condo/Townhome Reviews and open it up for anyone to comment. We would have to have a few guidelines for the reviewers but other than that we could get this done this week. Let me know what you think. ... more

Charity -
Good question - there has likely been a hesitation to answer your question since it is more of a legal question than a Realtor question.

If you guys already have a Realtor, you should ask is they have a law firm affiliated that could help you with that answer. If you do not yet have a Realtor, I would be happy to talk with you more and if you decided to work with me, let you talk with our company's lawyers.

And the short answer is, the mortgage company will ulitmately identify you by SS# ...

Good luck to you!

That information is not generally available online. A local agent would be able to help you. In addition to knowing how long the property is currently showing being for sale, an agent can pull the actual history to let you know if a home was withdrawn and relisted, expired and was relisted. All these can affect the actual DOM vs what the current listing states. ... more

They can be tricky and I don't have time to answer now. Many of our posts need disclaimers such as contact an attorney as we cannot practice law. However, this one is often more of an accountants topic. Are you currently selling or buying? By giving more details, we can better help you. Please post again with more details by hitting "answer this question".

Realtors with the West Metro Board of Realtors would be your best source of information. Do you have some specific requirements in mind?

Ute Ferdig answered:
I have used Google pay per click, but did not get a call or lead from it so far. In all fairness, I was not surprised as the listing that I had on a pay per click campaign was a difficult listing. I had more luck with craigslist so far. I would try the pay-per click route again and it seems to me that Google is more used than Yahoo. I am trying to gather information about Internet advertising, what works best and what does not work to be able to share it at our office. I think the whole Internet advertising tool is still very new and I have not been able to get clear answers. ... more
