So why do people buy and sell houses?
Bottom line it’s usually because of life circumstances. My husband bought his first condo because I think he was ready to be an adult and was ready to ask me to marry him. He probably thought owning a condo was a good step toward both of those ambitious goals. Why did we buy our next home? I was expecting our first child and the 17th floor of a Buckhead condo didn’t feel like the best place to start a family. Our second home? Our 4 ½ year old son would soon be starting Kindergarten forcing us to consider important education decisions. We decided to move to a great public school district instead of paying private school tuition. Our next home? We tore down our 1920’s bungalow to stay in a great neighborhood and increase our property value more than we could have with a renovation. After that, with my husband and I both having careers in real estate, we got a little carried away and moved more times than I originally planned over the years.
Sure everyone is interested in interest rates and how the market is doing, but it’s the people that live in the homes and the circumstances at the time that prompt the move. Having been blogging for a couple of years now, I’ve realized the posts I enjoy most are the ones that are from personal experience while still relating to great schools in the Atlanta area and all the things affecting families and children with their changing needs and interests. For that reason, all my posts will now be original instead of stats or information that can be found on Google.
I have a wealth of information on all things relating to home buying and selling in and around the Atlanta area and would love to be considered your “go-to” for answers and advice.
Happy New Year and to a year full of many happy life circumstances.
