Hopefully we're out of the woods with this economic downturn that has hurt Americans abroad. Georgia's overall jobless rate hit 10.1 percent in June - the highest ever recorded! As for Macon, Warner Robins and Middle Georgia period, the jobless rate varied a bit. So what does this mean for a Real Estate market that has had more twist and turns than the Acrophobia ride at Six Flags Georgia? It means now more than ever we need to have a solid plan in place to sell our property, for whatever the need to sell may be. So to the question we're asked day in and day out "How do I sell my house in Macon or Warner Robins Ga in a recession"? To be quite honest, the answer really shouldn't be any different from what you would do in a great economy.>>read more

After dealing with many homeowners in foreclosure, I've had the benefit of meeting some of America's most amazing families in Georgia. With what seems like a steady stream of bill collectors calling, mountains of bills and late notices piled on the kitchen tables of most of the homes I've visited, americans are still stronger than ever! I decided to dig into what keeps a family together during these tough and trying times.
Today, not only is the economy an issue, we've got divorce, global warming, swine flu, and GOD knows what else to keep us in a heightened state of stress.

Anyway, you get my point. They say a family that prays together stays together, and maybe that's what a father (or Mother) has to do when they find out they're being foreclosed on, and have to break the news to the family at dinner. >>read more
Ready to place your home on the market? Do you understand the process and details of selling a home in Middle Georgia? Before you list with an agent, educate yourself on all the factors that will affect your profit. Be as informed as possible so you can make the best business decisions. After all, the sale of your home is a business decision!
Most of us are not tuned into the trends and fluctuations of the real estate market around Macon and Warner Robins Georgia. Likewise we are not aware of the necessary steps to maximize profits on the sale of our homes. Typically we rely heavily upon an agent to lead us down the most profitable path. When considering our home is usually the most valuable asset we own, doesn't it make sense to list with someone who will maximize our profits? But how do we find that agent? >> read more

If you are headed toward foreclosure, or are already in foreclosure, you need to know the rights and options available to you now. Only then can you save your house, save your credit, or save your equity before it's gone forever.
Once you get behind on your mortgage, the clock is ticking. The sooner you decide on the course of action, the more cash you and your family can pull out of your house, and the better chance you'll have of stopping the bank from stealing your home. >> read more
