The Marketing Directors achieves sellout of Serrano Condominiums in Sandy Springs

ATLANTA (June 12, 2012) – The Marketing Directors has achieved another impressive feat, announcing the sellout of all 150 condominiums at Serrano located at 901 Abernathy Road NE in the heart of Sandy Springs.  Serrano was the #1 selling condominium community in the Perimeter sub-market in 2011, achieving unmatched success and velocity.

“Serrano’s realistic pricing, luxurious amenities and sought after perimeter location appealed to first-time home buyers and discerning empty nesters,” says David Tufts, president of The Marketing Directors.

ST Residential starts 2012 with multiple sellouts

ATLANTA – ST Residential celebrates a strong start to 2012, announcing three sellouts since January at Horizon at Wildwood, Luxe and Serrano. Another sellout is not far behind, with 95% of The Townhomes at One River Place sold after a dramatic increase in traffic in the last quarter. Additionally, Atlanta’s premier eco-friendly high rise, The Brookwood, is leading the Buckhead submarket with the most net sales for the fourth straight quarter, and is currently over 50% sold.

We’re seeing strong demand at all of our communities in Atlanta” says John Huckaby, senior vice president of ST Residential.  “Limited supply for new construction condominiums and low interest rates has certainly helped strengthen the market.”

Someone Else Owns The Home You Are Renting

Owning a home is still the American Dream. Renting is easier, but let's remember, somebody else owns the home you're renting. You are helping them achieve the American Dream and that's awful nice of you...but don't you want to achieve your own dream? You think that by renting you are saving money? You aren't. You are just paying someone else's mortgage, or at least part of it.

Wouldn't you rather invest that rent money into your own home? Let us assume that the average rent in a San Antonio Texas neighborhood for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is $1000. Over the period of one year (12 months), you have contributed $12,000 to a person's, whom you probably don't even know, future.

Not So Big House Principles Apply to Remodeling Projects of all Sizes

Free Educational Program on Oct. 15   The concept or movement of “Not So Big House” has entered the mainstream, but what is it and who started it? Well, what it is not about is tiny houses for everyone, or a creed of bad design in favor of tiny energy bills.   The No So Big House philosophy, in fact, embraces architectural style across the spectrum, and is a concept dedicated to homes of all … well, most sizes. It can be described as an anti-McMansion sort of trend, but it is much more positive than that.   This is a direction in home design and construction championed by Sarah Susanka, an architect by trade, that emphasizes the concept of home as haven, in scale and proportion to need, a welcoming, comfortable, usable place where space is used according to purpose, rooms flow together with subtle delineations -- well-built, light-filled and energy-efficient.

Selling Season Is NOT Over

Selling Season Is NOT Over

If you have been trying to buy or sell a home and the end of the spring-summer real estate season is stressing you out, The Castles By Chrissy Team says "relax!"

Even though real estate sales do fall off at the end of warm weather, there's still plenty of buying and selling coming this fall and winter.

Remember, sales volume is not your problem. The only house you care about is the one you're selling or hoping to buy.

Real estate isn't nearly as seasonal as it used to be. If a house is priced and marketed appropriately, no matter what time of year it is, there will be a buyer for it.

What's more, many home buyers and sellers are bucking the seasonal nature of residential real estate.
