My husband Tom and I just taught a class about wealth building through real estate to a fantastic group of agents. It was an awesome class and I wanted to let you know that we’re going to be hosting another one soon, so keep an eye on your inbox for the details. I also wanted to give you a quick update about the market. In real estate, it’s always been the case that if you have to take a bit of a haircut on the sale of your house, you’ll get a little haircut on your purchase. However, within certain pockets of our market, you can sell high and buy low, getting the best of both worlds. If you or someone you know is interested in moving, we’d love to discuss your situation and determine if now is the perfect time.
With that said, let’s take a moment to go over what’s happening now in our East Cobb area real estate market.
Especially in the $300,000-and-under price point, real estate is red-hot these days. Nearly every home priced at or below $400,000 is moving quickly and receiving multiple offers, so it’s definitely a great time to list if you’re thinking of doing so. In fact, these same conditions are largely consistent across the nation.
Sellers with homes listed between $400,000 and $600,000, meanwhile, will need to be a little more strategic if they want to earn top dollar. The market is still hot within these ranges, but it’s definitely slower-paced than the lower end of things. If you plan to list in the luxury market, you’ll be facing a different situation entirely. There is a lot of inventory to be had in the range at and above $750,000. In Roswell specifically, there is a 30-month supply of properties in this range. We haven’t seen this kind of inventory since 2009.
If you’d like to learn more about these conditions or about our upcoming movie party, or if you have any other questions about real estate in general, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Hello everyone! In light of our upcoming summer movie premiere event, I’d like to give you some details ahead of time, and that includes the unveiling of the movie we’ll be showing!
The official start to summer this year is on Friday, June 21, and because our movie parties are always on Saturday mornings, this year’s will be the very next day—June 22. Doors open at 9 a.m. and showtime will be 9:30 a.m. at Aurora Cineplex.
Each year, we’re reminded of why we do these movie parties: Every bit of our business throughout the year comes from you and the referrals you send our way. No matter if the referrals you send us don’t call or call later, we’re infinitely grateful that you’re sharing our name and the positive experience you’ve had working with us.
This is our way of thanking you for that! Being that you’re a past client or referring client, we’re giving you this link early. You can sign up here.
After you all have signed up, we’ll roll out the opportunity to other friends of friends. We have just 400 seats available, and we max out the theater year in and year out, so don’t delay in signing up!
And without further ado, the movie we’re screening is Toy Story 4! In case you don’t remember where we left off in the story, Andy will be giving the toys to Bonnie, and she’s making a new arts-and-crafts toy from a fork. The fourth movie will chronicle the fork’s adventures and how it learns to be a toy.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at Aurora Cineplex on Saturday, June 22, at 9:00 a.m.!
