At this time last year, the rate was 3.73%. Let’s use an example to see how that difference impacts the actual cost of a home. Assume you purchased a home last year and took out a $250,000 mortgage. As mentioned above, home values have increased by 5.5% over the previous year. To buy that same home this year, you would need to take out a mortgage of $263,750. “

Make Your Move to Renaissance at South Park 09/25/2020
FAIRBURN - Homebuyers are on the move this year! This article in KeepingCurrentMatters.com explains what is happening with the real estate market right now. “Real estate continues to be called the ‘bright spot’ in the current economy, but there’s one thing that may hold the housing market back from achieving its full potential this year: the lack of homes for sale.”

Mortgage rates are extremely attractive and homebuyers are looking for homes now. Buyers are actively searching for and purchasing homes, looking to capitalize on today’s historically low interest rates. The only thing is, the housing inventory only has about a 3.1 month supply of homes on the market, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). To have a balanced market where there are enough homes for sale to meet buyer demand, the market needs inventory for 6 months.

Rocklyn Homes is excited to announce that Phase III is now open at Renaissance at South Park. Move now to enjoy the amenities that will re-open when the time is right. You can look forward next summer to a pool with beach swim out, year round tennis courts and community clubhouse.

Why Purchase a New Home? 09/09/2020
ATLANTA - When deciding to make the move to a new home, you may be unsure about why purchasing a new home is a great investment. According to this article in KeepingCurrentMatters.com, there are a lot of pro’s to purchasing new construction versus a resale home.

First, you can often choose more energy-efficient options. New appliances, new windows, a new roof, etc. These can all help lower your energy costs, which can add up to significant savings over time. Most new homeowners do not have an exorbitant amount of time to do maintenance and repairs, so lower maintenance that comes with a newer home is another great benefit. When you have a new home, you likely won’t have as many little repairs to tackle, like leaky faucets, shutters to paint, and other odd jobs around the house. With new construction, you’ll also have warranty options that may cover portions of your investment for the first few years.

Another solid benefit to new construction is customization. Do you want a mudroom, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, hardwood floors, an office, or a multipurpose room to homeschool your children? These items can be customized to your specific needs during the design phase. With an existing home, you’re buying something that is finished, so making changes may require you to hire a contractor to help get your home ready for your family.

Rocklyn Homes offers customizable new homes at both Cascades and South Wind in South Fulton.

Build a House to Work and Live In 08/19/2020
ATLANTA - If you are like most people in the U.S., you didn’t think much about a home office before 2020. Sure, you might have mentally designated a space to work on projects outside of the office or prepare to telecommute when your child was sick. But it was likely an afterthought. These days, however, it is at the forefront of most people’s minds. When designing your house, think about how your family will live and work (or learn) from home. Here are a few recommendations from Edward Andrews Homes for building a home for your new work-from-home lifestyle.

Setting up a temporary workspace at the dining room table or in your living room was fine for the first month or two. But you really need to be able to be careful not to let work bleed into your personal life. It’s easy to check emails, finish up a project, or get a head start on something for the next day when your work equipment is right there. Think about this when you are designing your home. An at-home office isn’t a waste of space, it’s a blessing. At the end of the day, you can step away from your desk and close the office door until morning. And that will make all the difference.

We’re all spending a lot more time with our family these days. Over the past few months, many of us have discovered the games or activities the entire family enjoys. When you build your new house, keep this togetherness in mind. Design a cozy and functional family room that comfortably fits the members of your household. Your attention to detail here can mean far more evenings of family fun playing board games, putting puzzles together, or having a family karaoke night. This should remain a no work, no class space. Set this room away from areas the family works or does eLearning in, so there’s no association with anything but fun here.

Creating a home office or even multiple workspaces might seem like a waste. It’s true that many people will be returning to the office or the classroom at some point in the future. But it’s also true that COVID-19 has changed how we work and learn forever. By putting in the effort now to build a home that has a home office, designed spaces for learning and working, and a family room made for everyone, the daily transition between work and home life will be much easier.

Brock Built Hires Street Artist to Create Murals 07/23/2020
ATLANTA - Characterized by large visual illustrations in public spaces, “street art” is an incredibly popular medium for expression. In Atlanta alone, over 900 street art murals celebrate the city’s diverse population and perspectives. From prominent displays along the Belt Line, to the iconic Krog Street tunnel and building façades throughout the metro area, these bold and inventive paintings delight passerby and spark lively conversations.

Brock Built Homes has been honoring the talent of local artists for years. That’s why it was a no-brainer for them to partner with local street artist Eric Nine to paint bold exterior murals at five of their Atlanta neighborhoods. His latest masterpiece – a colorful portrait of a beautiful woman in profile, lost in thought, with flowers trailing behind her – serves a dual purpose at Brock Built’s Castleberry Station.

Nine’s colorful 30-foot murals are clearly connected – a deliberate display of the artist’s celebration of the human spirit. In his most recent piece at Castleberry Station, he depicts a woman with striking blue eyes with a whimsical burst of flowers around her. Nine says this depicts human imagination and thoughts that transcend superficial differences. “If we can all align our thoughts and get on the same page, the faces can be interchanged,” explains Nine. “We are all the same. What matters the most is what’s in your head – your thoughts and feelings about each other.” The mural series has been a huge hit with the residents, who love the unique character the famed street artist brings to the community.

Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Buy 07/14/2020
ATLANTA - With mortgage interest rates at an all-time low – hovering around 2-3% for qualified homebuyers – and property values steadily increasing, now is the perfect time to buy a house in the metro-Atlanta area. Interested homebuyers are scouring daily listings and moving quickly – and they’re paying over the asking price for the homes of their dreams. Property values are holding, but the inventory of homes for sale is down from 3.3 months last year to 2.5 months this year, resulting in fewer homes to choose from. If you have your eye on a house in the Atlanta market, it’s not going to be available for long with the average Days on the Market being 18 days and increasing prices.

Realtor Buynoski encourages homebuyers to take advantage of the low interest rates that increase their purchasing power for existing homes – and open them up to unexpected opportunities in new construction. “Even if you just prequalified for a mortgage in January, your interest rate is probably a full point lower today,” Buynoski explains. “That can make a huge difference in your monthly payments.

“Stability is extremely important,” Buynoski advises. “Don’t make any life changes until you’ve purchased a home. Don’t make employment changes; don’t change fields. Don’t open new credit. Keep your balances low and continue to make on-time payments.”

Many aspiring homebuyers are currently uncertain of their finances and job stability, but they’re eager to make progress on their goal to buy a home. For those who are anticipating a positive change to their finances, they can still take steps now to increase their chances of securing a home in the future. “Contact a lender now to determine the steps you need to take when you get back on your feet financially,” Realtor Liberty advises.

Empire Launches Sales in Four Intown Communities 05/15/2020
ATLANTA - Empire Communities plans to launch new home sales in four intown Atlanta neighborhoods starting in early June. With townhomes starting in the low-$300Ks to mid- $400Ks+, the new Empire communities - 4Forty4 in Old Fourth Ward, Paintbox in Kirkwood, Swift in Grant Park, and Crosby in West Midtown - will increase the immediate availability of homeownership opportunities in highly-desirable intown locations as the Atlanta residential inventory level remains low at a three-month supply.

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, other intown resale options have declined significantly as sellers quickly removed their homes from the market and began to shelter-in-place. At the same time, Empire moved forward with the construction of its intown developments and pivoted to a virtual sales platform. Now more than 60 days later, interest rates have reached unprecedented lows. Demand has stabilized after a brief pause, and new construction has emerged as an even more attractive option for potential buyers.

To enhance the buyer experience, Empire is also launching a new centralized sales approach, beginning with a temporary sales center opening next month at Ponce City Market. For those buyers who prefer a remote buying experience, Empire will continue to provide a virtual platform to guide the process while practicing social distancing.

To support the intown sales strategy, Empire has launched a new website empireatlanta.com More information on community openings, pricing, floorplans, sales center openings, virtual sales tools, exclusive intown events and a sign up for the Empire interest list are available here.

MarketNsight Compares Sales April 2019 to 2020: 05/12/2020
ATLANTA - MarketNsight recently announced a state of the Atlanta new home market at April’s month-end. Compared to the same four months of data in 2019, the final results of January through April 2020 are almost a wash. “Sales from January 2020 through the first week of March 2020 were so exceptional that it has compensated for the negative effects of COVID-19 (coronavirus) that we have experienced from the second week of March on,” MarketNsight Principal John Hunt said.

MarketNsight data shows that even with a lag in the fourth week of April 2020, new pending sales in Atlanta totaled 4,306 from January to April 2020. That compares to a total of 4,342 new pending sales in 2019 from January to April. “That means new pending sales in Atlanta for January through April 2020 are only down 1% from last year,” Hunt said. “When the lag is accounted for, we will essentially be on par with 2019.”

MarketNsight has graphed weekly coronavirus cases and the year-to-year percent change for new pending sales through the fourth week of April. “The numbers show we appear to have found a bottom in the first week of April,” Hunt said. “With a lag, the last week of April was 24% below the same week last year. “Accounting for the lag, the last week of April looks to be down only 9% from the same period last year. With the lag accounted for, the entire month of April in 2020 will be down 20% over April last year.”

“Also bear in mind that housing and the economy were in an exceptional place when this crisis started,” Hunt said. “Unlike the 2008 recession where every player was over-leveraged, overpriced and had far too many lots and spec homes, the fundamentals today are sound.” Through February 2020, the Atlanta market experienced record job growth, population growth, household formation, in-migration, extremely low lot and home inventories and moderate price inflation, according to Hunt.

To Build or Buy Used? Buying New is the Better 05/04/2020
ATLANTA - It’s a question you’ve probably asked yourself in your home-buying journey: Is it better to buy an older home and renovate it, or build a new home? Maybe you’ve looked at a few used houses already and saw the costs of updates stacking up. Or maybe you’re concerned about the amount of time it would take to wait for a new build. We looked into it so you wouldn’t have to.

Renovate or Buy New: Cost

The initial price tag on a new home is higher than an older home. But that doesn’t mean the cost savings of that older home will stick with you for long. By the time you add in all the things you need to change to make that home suite your style and lifestyle needs you may not be saving any money.

Older homes tend to be less energy efficient, so they’ll cost more to heat and cool. And, depending on the state of the older residence, you may be reaching into your pocket to pay for updates sooner than you expect. When we dug into the numbers, we found that buying new makes more financial sense than buying a home that needs serious remodeling. That’s not even taking into account unplanned upgrades or issues. Which leads us to…

Buy New or Used: Repairs, Replacements and Upgrades

Here’s a big pro of buying a newly constructed home: No need for repairs or upgrades for the foreseeable future. That’s because you picked the layout, the flooring, the colors, everything ahead of time. Your bathrooms and kitchen are in pristine condition.

The same can’t be said about older homes. You might need to think about replacing the hot water heater, HVAC system, or roof within the first few years of living there. Or you might need to do some serious renovations early on to fit your family’s needs. If you’re not a lover of home projects – and don’t want to deal with living in a construction site for a chunk of time – then you may want to seriously consider buying a new home.

Atlanta Builder/Architect Creates Earth Friendly Homs 04/20/2020
ATLANTA - As we prepare to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day (April 22, 2020) while sheltering in place from COVID-19 (coronavirus), Jones Pierce Studios Project Delivery Director Frank Wickstead has designed and is in the process of building a sustainable home for his family, believing every day should be Earth Day.

Wickstead’s sustainable home, designed for his fiancé and their blended family, is located in North Buckhead in the City of Atlanta. The home will earn a number of green building certifications including the National Green Building Standard from the National Association of Home Builders, Southface Energy Institute’s EarthCraft House and Wellness Within Your Walls.

According to Wickstead, this time of social isolation has amplified the idea of finding a “place” for everyone in the home. With or without a next pandemic, family isolation has exposed potential weaknesses in our homes and has inspired new plans for spaces. Jones Pierce Studios is planning for spaces for distance learning and virtual meetings in the Wickstead home.

The Wickstead sustainable dreamhouse demonstrates the best in class of how modern design and implementation combine to best serve home occupants from perspectives ranging from health, to comfort, to energy and water efficiency, to high design and a sense of place.
