Yet another great week for Intown Atlanta and Decatur real estate

I counted that I am working with ten different buyers who will buy property Intown before the end of April. One of my clients is obtaining one of the most creative FHA loans that I’ve ever seen – it is geared to help Intown, urban buyers – HUGE leverage for first timers. I showed properties from Chamblee to East Point last week – probably opened 30 lockboxes.

I bought this software that organizes Expired and Withdrawn listing data and helps me track the following – who are the Realtors that are consistently overpricing listings and not getting them sold AND how to contact their former clients when the listing expires or gets withdrawn. I started making calls every morning to ask folks that I don’t know when they are going to hire a Realtor who can get their property sold. Aggressiveness counts in this real estate market.

My business partner Greg Ruis and I interviewed with the owners of a super cool Robert Green designed house – gorgeous architecture. We believe that we’ll earn their business.

My friends Scott and Teri Hagedorn were in town from NYC and we got to hang out, eat Fritti take out, and socialize. We gathered to be with our friend who is about to have surgery to remove his thyroid cancer – he is an amazing inspiration to all of us! What a remarkable outlook.

My wife and I had another good OB/GYN report on Friday – she is 3 weeks away from giving birth to our daughter!

I saw the Southside builder legend, Donnie Henry – he’s about to break ground in Edgewood on a fabulous new contemporary design 3/2 house – cool corner lot.

Interest rates are killer. Inventory is plentiful. Sellers are starting to realize that repairing every defect and resetting their expectations about price is the only way to go in 2008. Recession be damned!
