Timeless Southern Porches

There are few things that say “Southern charm” like a comfortable, shady porch. There is something really special about enjoying an iced tea or a glass of wine, having a relaxed weekend meal, or relaxing with a book outdoors on the porch. They say “welcome to my home” and create a timeless first impression.

A twilight welcome at 2741 Vinings Orchard Circle

Although our summers can be hot, living in Atlanta means we get at least three seasons of use out of our porches.

As a realtor, I’m seeing the screened in porch as a big draw for potential buyers as well. Not only does a porch keep some of the harsh sunlight and heat out of your home, but a screened porch adds a lot of usable indoor/outdoor living space for a fraction of the cost of a home addition.

Southern porches can be as simple as a covered patio on the front of the house to a screened room with luxurious furnishings and a fireplace, surround sound, and entertainment center.

Furnishings are usually casual with comfort in mind. Rocking chairs are always welcome and it’s hard to go wrong with a porch swing.

Adding a ceiling fan can really enhance the comfort level and screening in a porch keeps out pests and makes outdoor dining a breeze. What could be better than summer entertaining with an outdoor kitchen and dining area on a porch?

My listing at 2741 Vinings Orchard Circle has incredible porches on every level of the home

There is a style of porch for every architectural style too, from rustic to neoclassical, low country to modern. Even pool houses and walk-out basement entrances are getting the screened porch treatment.

Adding shutters is a classic touch that also creates more privacy on a porch (and is a great place for kids to camp out during sleepovers).

Architectural and style trends may come and go, but a classic southern element like a great porch is timeless.

Vinings Townhome under contract

It didn’t take too much time (well, it was almost immediately after listing it in FMLS), that the townhome I posted about earlier, located at  2858 Paces Lookout Lane SE, Atlanta, GA 30339, went under contract. This beautiful home with multiple outdoor living spaces closes in August.

The end townhome at Paces View offers three sides of windows, making it very light and bright. Click on the image for additional information and more photos.

The end townhome at Paces View in Vinings went under contract almost immediately.  It closes in August with a happy buyer and seller.

We are looking forward to a smooth real estate transaction in Atlanta’s vibrant real estate market.  The 2013 Atlanta real estate market has been especially exciting.  Now is a great time to buy a home, and many sellers are finally seeing reasonable offers with relatively quick closing dates.

Please let me know if you’re even thinking about buying or selling your Atlanta area home! While you hear me talking about Buckhead and Vinings real estate all the time, I have lots of experience throughout metro Atlanta including Sandy Springs, Smyrna, “Smynings”, Ansley Park, and Midtown.

Vinings (30339) real estate market update: June 2012

Interesting data again about what we’re seeing in the Vinings real estate market – the area of Atlanta in zip code 30339.

Inventory is down with sales on the rise, across all price points! At the $300,000 price point this reflects what I have personally seen in the market and continues the trend from last November. The higher price point in Vinings is finally having steady sales after next to nothing in 2011.  These statistics look more dramatic due to the low volume, but it is positive news!

Inventory Down, Prices Rising in Atlanta

Can I hear a big woo hoo from everyone out there.  This is something I’ve felt since last October and recently in competitive bidding on properties.  I’m thrilled that it shows that prices are coming up.  The appraisals have been lagging slightly, but we are making the transactions happen.  Super low interest rates and the bottom is behind us.  If you haven’t made the move yet, you’re missing out!  Lump California together and we’re actually number 4 in low inventory.  Prices were down so low and many people have chosen not to sell at those prices.  Now that pricing is coming back slightly it may be time to go on the market!  Let me know if I can help!

Top 10 metros for shrinking inventory

Realtor.com data shows 20 percent annual decline in US listings in May

By Inman News, Wednesday, June 13, 2012.

Inman News®

Editor’s note: Data collected and analyzed by Realtor.com through  May 2012. Includes single-family homes, condos, townhomes and co-ops.

The national housing market continues to stabilize, according to data compiled by Realtor.com for 146 U.S. metros through May 2012.

May continued April’s year-over-year upswing, with for-sale inventory dropping 20.07 percent, median list prices jumping 3.17 percent to $194,900, and median age of for-sale inventory falling 9.78 percent compared to a year ago.

Data Point Percent Change, May 2012 vs. May 2011
Number of Listings -20.07%
Median List Price 3.17%
Median Age of Inventory -9.78%

As of May, national for-sale inventory stood at 1.88 million units, roughly 60 percent of a September 2007 inventory peak of 3.1 million units (2007 was the first year Realtor.com tracked this data nationally).

Despite a slight 1.96 percent month-over-month increase in national inventory — expected because listings usually swell during the springtime buying season — all but two of the 146 metros Realtor.com tracks had fewer homes for sale than a year ago.

Some of those markets hit hardest in the housing crisis — Atlanta and metros in Florida, Arizona and California — are showing some consistent, month-by-month turnaround. In May, Phoenix, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Fla., and Atlanta were among the top 10 metros Realtor.com tracks with year-over-year percentage drops in for-sale inventory.

This month, six of the metros in the top 10 that saw the greatest reduction in inventories from a year ago were in California, including three in the San Francisco Bay Area: Oakland at No. 1 (56.6 percent fewer listings than a year ago); San Jose at No. 6 (40.88 percent fewer listings); and San Francisco at No. 10 (38.9 percent fewer listings).

Top 10 metros for greatest year-over-year reduction in for-sale inventory, May 2012

Rank Metro For-sale inventory, percent change, May 2012 vs. May 2011
1 Oakland, Calif. -56.60%
2 Fresno, Calif. -48.76%
3 Bakersfield, Calif. -48.59%
4 Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz. -44.71%
5 Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, Wash. -42.65%
6 San Jose, Calif. -40.80%
7 Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Fla. -39.76%
8 Stockton-Lodi, Calif. -39.25%
9 Atlanta -39.19%
10 San Francisco -38.90%

Vinings (30339) real estate market update: February 2012

Interesting data again about what we’re seeing in the Vinings real estate market – the area of Atlanta in zip code 30339.

Inventory is decreasing, but it appears the demand for homes in Vinings is towards the lower end and the inventory is towards the higher end.

Based on what is under contract currently we may see this trend change in the next month but at least we’re seeing a continued decrease in inventory.
