Can you help these buyers find a new home?

The ridiculously low inventory is presenting numerous challenges finding homes for my buyers. We’re rushing to the new listings & submitting offers within hours of them coming on the market only to find that other buyers did the same. Usually at least one of the competing offers is cash & we all know cash is king. It’s very disappointing for the buyers and we hope you can alleviate their frustration by helping them find a new home. Here’s what we need:

1. East Cobb-Must be in Dickerson Middle School
Townhouse or condo-minimum 3 bedrooms & 2 baths
Garage is a must have
Up to $300,000

2. Dunwoody, North Fulton or East Cobb
Ranch home
¾+ acre lot-the bigger the lot, the better
Up to $400,000

3. Dunwoody, Sandy Springs
Condo-minimum 2 bedrooms & 2 baths
Street/parking lot level unit
Must have easy access to parking lot-no more than a few steps
Up to $100,000

If you or someone you know has a match for these buyers please let me know ASAP. You’ll earn tons of good karma points by helping the buyers. Even better, it will save a lot of time & effort getting the house ready to show.

Looking for the perfect place for your new home too? Always happy to help! Just contact me TODAY to get started. Can’t wait? Just follow this link: http://www.debbybraun.com/search_atlanta_mls_listings.asp

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

St Patricks Day…the one day a year we all claim to have a little Irish in us 🙂

Impress your friends this year with these fun St Patrick’s Day Facts:

  • St. Patrick was not Irish. He was from Wales.
  • The humble shamrock was originally a teaching tool. St. Patrick is said to have used the three-leaved plant to explain the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) to the pagan Irish.
  • The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in New York in the 1760s.
  • For many years, blue was the color most often associated with St. Patrick. Green was considered unlucky. St. Patrick’s blue was considered symbolic of Ireland for many centuries and the Irish Presidential Standard is still blue.
  • For many years, Dripsey in County Cork had the world’s shortest parade, just 77 feet, the distance between two pubs – The Weigh Inn and The Lee Valley. Currently, the town of Hot Springs, AR claims to have the shortest parade – a 98 foot route on Bridge Street. Recent participants included the Irish Elvises and the San Diego Chicken.
  • In 2010, the Sydney Opera House went green to mark the 200th anniversary of St. Patrick’s Day there. In Sydney, St Patrick’s Day was first marked in 1810, when Lachlan Macquarie, the Governor of New South Wales, provided entertainment for Irish convict workers.
  • Irish flee the country. In Ireland on March 17 you’ll find many public figures, musicians, and dancers have traveled abroad to work on lucrative gigs elsewhere. Politicians also travel to drum up trade.
  • In Chicago every year, the Plumbers Local 110 union dyes the river “Kelly” green. The dye lasts for about five hours.
  • Traditionally, every year, the Irish leader hands a crystal bowl full of shamrock to the US President. The shamrock, grown in Kerry, is immediately destroyed by the Secret Service after the exchange.
  • Guinness sales soar on St. Patrick’s Day. Recent figures show that 5.5 million pints of the black stuff are downed around the world every day. On St. Patrick’s Day that figure is doubled.

Wanted to remind you about an awesome App to search local real estate listings. Your Atlanta real estate concierge has an App that provides free, accurate, real time information.  Just follow the link or scan the QR code below to install:

Once installed you will have a free pass to an awesome search tool with direct access to me. Nearby listings will automatically scroll across the top of your screen. The “Advanced Search” button enables you to refine the search to specific criteria. If any listings pique your interest simply click on the “contact” button (bottom, left in listing detail screen) to call or email me immediately.

Another really cool feature is the ability to draw a designated search area on the map. Just select the “draw” feature in the mapping tool and you’ll be able to select the desired geography with a touch of your finger. Realtor.com has been advertising that handy new feature on their app. We’ve had it for over 2 years.
