Get To Know Cumming GA A Little Better https://www.mandichpropertygroup.com/forsyth-county/cumming/get-to-know-cumming-ga/ Sat, 12 May 2018 18:19:33 +0000 https://www.mandichpropertygroup.com/?p=1820 Cumming is a City inside of Forsyth County and is part of the Atlanta Metropolitan area, and it's latitude longitude coordinates are 34.20357° N, -84.13994° E. It is approximately 39 miles northeast of Downtown Atlanta. Cumming is also the county seat of Forsyth County. The city was named in tribute to Col. William Cumming who participated in the War of 1812.

Cumming History

Image Credit

The area was originally settled by the Cherokee Indians. The Cherokee lived alongside white settlers until gold was discovered in North Georgia in 1828. In 1865 the Treaty Of New Echota was signed that forced the Cherokee to move to the Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River. This migration of the Indians is known as the infamous Trail of Tears.

The territory was then formed in Cherokee County in 1831, and the split into several counties including Forsyth County in 1832. In 1833 the city of Cumming was formed from 2 separate 40 acre land lots.

During the 1830's and 1840's Cumming prospered from the gold mining industry. Many local business were formed to meet the needs of the miners. It was short lived though because of the California Gold Rush in 1849 that put the city into an economic depression.

In the early 1900's Cumming was plagued with racial conflict, and in 1912 Governor Brown sent state militia to Cumming to prevent riots.

Now it's a totally new city that is experiencing great growth, thanks to Georgia 400 that has helped make it easier to commute to Atlanta.

In 2014 the population was 5,615, with a population estimate as of July 1 2016 at 6,225.

Cumming Attractions

One of Forsyth's and Cumming's biggest attractions is Lake Lanier. If you are looking for some excellent campgrounds, Sawnee , Shady Grove and Baldridge Creek are fantastic for fishing, boating and swimming.
Lanierland Music Park hosts concert events in the summer up to late fall that showcases popular country music singers.

If golfing is your thing, the area has some excellent golf courses, including championship golf course Hampton Golf Village.

If you are into theater, then the Cumming Playhouse is for you! They provide quality entertainment throughout the year offering plays, musicals, concerts, with fine dining provided by Tam's Backstage Food and Spirits.

If you just want to enjoy nature, Cumming has that for you as well. It's the home of Mary Alice Park, Caney creek Preserve, Haw Creek and Coal Mountain to name a few.

Cumming also has their own annual Fourth of July parade which is recognized for displaying the largest number of steam engine tractors in the world.

As you can see, Cumming GA has a lot to offer. And as a final note, if you have a house that you need to sell fast in Cumming, reach out to us by visiting our website, or call us at 770-756-8680.

Facts About Cherokee County Georgia https://www.mandichpropertygroup.com/cherokee-county/facts-about-cherokee-county-georgia/ Thu, 10 May 2018 20:32:19 +0000 https://www.mandichpropertygroup.com/?p=1809 There are a lot of interesting facts to know about Cherokee County Georgia. If you have never visited, or are just curious about the county, keep reading to learn more.


Image Credit

Cherokee County GA is roughly 40 miles north of Atlanta. It is the home of Reinhardt University. The county was originally much larger as was divided up into 24 separate, smaller counties. It now covers about 424 square miles of land and 13 square miles of water, with the water being mostly Lake Allatoona.

It now has a population of around 240,000. According to the Census of 2000 the population was only around 141,000. The counties explosive growth is thanks to it's proximity to Atlanta and being easily accessible via I75.

If you think the name "Cherokee" might have something to do with the Cherokee Nation of Indians, you are absolutely right. The county was actually named after the Cherokee Indians living there in the 1830's, before they were forcefully removed, and was part of the infamous Trail Of Tears. Removing the Cherokee Indians allowed the county to be used for agricultural uses including the cultivation of corn and cotton as well as the mining of both gold and marble.

The gold rush started around 1828. Sixes Mine, on the site of present-day Sixes Mill, was one of the first in the area. The gold from this mine was noted as some of the purest in the state.

The county's fourth court house which was built in 1929 was built with white marble from Georgia and today houses the counties administration offices.

The county seat is named Canton, which has an interesting story all it's own. The name was taken from the city in China because residents tried to establish a silk trade in the late 1800's. Prior to that, it had been called Etowah, for the Etowah River that cuts through the town.

The Canton Cotton Mills, founded by R. T. Jones in 1899, was the county's main industry until the mills closed in 1981. The Canton Cotton Mills was the main source of industry for the county from 1899-1981, and the Mills are still standing to this day.

There are actually 9 mountains located in Cherokee County. They include Bear Mountain which is part of the Appalachian Mountains (and is even taller than Stone Mountain), Pine Log Mountain, Oakey Mountain, Dry Pond Mountain, Hickory Log Mountain, Polecat Mountain, Byrd Mountain, Garland Mountain and Posey Mountain.

With roughly 80,000 homes in Cherokee County, if you have one that you need to sell, and sell fast, please reach out to us. We would love the opportunity to make you an all cash offer on your house today. You can visit our website, or call us at 770-756-8680.

What To Do When You Want To Sell Your House By Owner https://www.mandichpropertygroup.com/dekalb-county/dunwoody/what-to-do-when-you-want-to-sell-your-house-by-owner/ Mon, 23 Apr 2018 19:41:42 +0000 https://www.mandichpropertygroup.com/?p=1763 In our social circles of friends we are often asked about selling your house by owner, what are the differences over selling with an agent, and how to go about it. In this short write up we cover just that and give you a few tips about selling your home yourself without using an agent.

Is It Necessary To Use An Agent?

Absolutely not. In Georgia you can sell your property all on your own. While there are advantages of using an agent (mainly someone else doing the work for you), with a little work you can get the job done yourself:

While a good agent can certainly help with the negotiation process, he or she also has a vested interest in the transaction. “And closing the deal may in some cases be more important to the agent than getting you the absolute best price,” Schorr says. If you’re a good negotiator and can handle the process without emotion and with clear eyes, you might do better on your own.

You will need to write your own description of the house, take your own photos, and give your own tours to prospective buyers. “If you excel at these things — or if you’re a control freak like me — you may do a better job than some realtors would,” Schorr says.

what to do when you want to sell your house by owner

We haven't run across many cases where agents were more concerned about closing the deal over price. The one thing we have come across is where agents give bad advice to sellers. The biggest one is pricing the property to high, only to lower the price later again and again to get interest. This has a tendency to backfire when buyers see a property with multiple price decreases leaving them to wonder what's wrong with the property.

We recently looked at a house where the seller's agent told them to NOT make any repairs, or change anything and even empty the house for showings. The asking price of this property was over 500k, so it was a rather large home. The interior of the property needed painting and carpet and was almost completely bare. With that kind of asking price and everything else in the area selling for around that price in immaculate condition, this seller had their property on the market for well over a year. So by not using an agent and following advice you find on the web, you just may be better off.

Anyhow, we're a little off topic, so let's get back to it -

What's The Difference Between Selling By Owner And Using A Realtor?

In our previous article "Selling Your House Without An Agent", we touched on just a few things on selling your home yourself. But what are some of the differences if you choose to use an agent vs. selling yourself? Really, there is no difference, except for the fact that if you choose to sell by owner you will have to do a bit of work on your own, as described on Home Guides:

There is no difference in the process of a FSBO transaction and one with realtor representation. An offer is made that – once it is accepted – begins a series of actions. An escrow account should be opened with good faith money deposited. The buyers begin the inspection period, while the sellers provide all required disclosures about the property and potentially about hazards in the area such as waste disposal sites. The buyer orders a title report to review all ownership and to complete all requirements for the lender to fund the loan. Buyers provide lender approvals and get funding.

Read The Full Article "What Forms Are Needed to Sell a Home by Owner?" Here

It's exactly the same, except for the fact that you aren't paying 5% or 6% in realtor fees. In Georgia the closing attorney is usually the one that orders a title report and handles the escrow account and ensures all of the mortgage papers are correct. If you aren't in a Judicial State, meaning you don't have to use an attorney, we would recommend that you do hire an attorney just to help make sure everything is done correctly and on the up and up since you won't have a realtor to make sure everything is correct.

Where To Start

Now you know that you can do it and it's basically the same process. So where do you start? Do you just put a sign in the yard and hope for the best? Nope. There is a lot that a realtor does, and now you need to do their job.

The first thing you need to do is research:

1. Research the MLS.
Do your research and find a few websites that allow you to post your home for sale online. Websites like this typically charge a flat rate, plus the cost of additional services.

2. Check out the competition.
Get a pulse on your local real estate market. How much are homes selling for in your area? How do these homes compare to yours?

3. Choose your list price.
Real estate agents run a comparative market analysis (also known as comps) when determining a home’s list price. When in doubt, start with a lower asking price. Overpricing by $10,000 can cause it to sit on the market and ultimately force you to sell for less than if you had priced it right initially.

Read The Full Article "How to Sell Your Home Without an Agent" Here

Make sure you do all the research you can on the internet when trying to find the value of your property. Zillow.com, Trulia.com and Redfin.com are all great places to start. Once you have the asking price set, then it's time to start marketing.

Here is a great video that will give you 10 great tips when selling your home by owner:

 

 

Lastly we wanted to cover making the entire process almost hassle free, and that is by selling your home to a cash buying company. These companies can make it extremely easy to sell your home by owner. You still will want to do some research to find out approximately what your house is worth, but then these companies pretty much handle the rest.

We are one of those companies, and we can make it really easy to sell your house by owner. If you have a house in Dunwoody, or anywhere in Metro Atlanta, we would like the opportunity to make you an offer on your property. You can learn more on our website, or call us anytime at 770-756-8680 for a hassle free offer.
