North Georgia Real Estate do's and don't Part 1

By
Real Estate Agent with AllMountainRealty.com

It is a great time to buy in our North Georgia Mountains.  Here are some of the do's and don'ts

1 Do not "lowball" a short sale or a foreclosure. If you do you probably will not get it. We are seeing more and more of these go for asking or over asking price. Hey THEY ARE GREAT DEALS to begin with.

2 Remember if you are "out there in the woods" on well water, on a gravel road your home may have been reasonably priced but your insurance will be high. The fire component of your insurance can be double or triple what it might be in other areas of the mountains

3 Lastly, but maybe not the last blog on the subject, if you find that mountain home think. Yes it will be beautiful but if you are isolated remember gas is + 3.00 a gallon and how long can you stare lovingly at the view and your spouse before you get a little bored? ( spouses may get bored with you too. I know it is hard to believe.

So think about your location in terms of your active life style. This list is in no way comprehensive But I am thinking 3 things to look at in a blog is manageable. . Stay tuned

Charlie,

I lived in a very rural area of New Jersey and your points are universal...especially the spouse one.

LOL!  I like #3...Better make sure that gas tank is always full!  Maybe better to hang in a place like this with a bunch of friends or just yourself to get away. :)
