Welcome & Thank You For Visiting
"Focused On What Matters Most To You"

Welcome to Savannah, Georgia's First City, a historic city with a revered past, a vibrant present and an exciting future. Savannah has an atmosphere and charm fostered by residents who have cherished and preserved its past. Our love of history is embodied in the beautifully restored homes, churches and public buildings that grace the city's unique, tree-filled squares, and that affection has given rise to a tourism industry that's boomed dramatically since the mid-90s. 
Energized by the upsurge in tourism and other positive economic factors, we have entered the 21st century in the enviable position of being able to use our past to enhance our present and future. Our Landmark Historic District is in the midst of a commercial revitalization that is spreading to the midtown Victorian District and spilling over into the eastside islands, the fast-growing Southside and the industrialized areas west of Savannah. 
Savannah is not only a top tourist destination but also an ideal city for business or family. Our diverse economy forms a strong business and employment base ranging from manufacturing to distribution, from tourism to military, from healthcare to port operations and retail sectors. Savannah is home to Hunter Army Airfield and Fort Stewart military bases. Combined the two bases employee more than 42,000 people and generate an annual direct federal expenditure of $1.4 billion dollars.

Unparalleled Trust Necessary Before Listing Your House

Unparalleled Trust Necessary Before Listing Your House | Simplifying The Market

You and your family have decided to sell your house. It is now time to choose a real estate professional to help with the process. One of the major attributes this agent must possess is trustworthiness. To what degree do you need to trust them?

You must have enough trust in them that you feel comfortable they will accomplish all four things below: 

1. Sell possibly the largest asset your family owns

In many cases, a home is the largest asset a family has. Studies have shown that the equity many families have in their home is the largest percentage of that family’s overall wealth. 

2. Set the correct market value on that asset

Pricing is crucial even in the best of markets. You want to get the best price for your home without putting your house at a value that buyers will have little interest in.

3. Set the time schedule for the liquidation of that asset

Your family probably has a certain timetable for the sale of your house and the move into your next home. Coordinating the home selling process to meet certain schedules can be tricky.

4. Set a fair fee for the services required to liquidate that asset

You will need to pay a commission to an agent for selling the home and coordinating all elements of the selling transaction, including possible future negotiations (ex. with a home inspector or appraiser).

That’s a lot of trust. Let’s get together to discuss the difference hiring a true professional can make in the sale of your home.

Sell NOW Before Competition Hits the Market

Sell NOW Before Competition Hits the Market | Simplifying The Market

In their current edition of the Home Price Expectation Survey released last week, Pulsenomics asked this question of the 100+ economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists they surveyed:

“In your opinion, what is the primary driver of recent home value growth in the U.S.?”

Here are the top four reasons given by those surveyed:

Sell NOW Before Competition Hits the Market | Simplifying The Market

As we have stated before, the current lack of inventory in most housing markets has caused home appreciation to increase at greater percentages than historical averages. This means that this is a great time to sell your home as supply is low and demand is high.

However, things may be about to change…

The fortuitous situation sellers see themselves in may soon change for three reasons:

  1. As more homeowners realize their equity situation has dramatically improved over the last four years, they will be more likely to put their homes on the market.
  2. With the residential real estate sector outperforming a sluggish economy, more home builders will be looking to add new construction inventory to a depleted supply of housing stock.
  3. Many banks are just now foreclosing on loans that have been delinquent since the housing bust. These houses will also be coming to market.

According to Daren Blomquist, senior vice president of RealtyTrac, in the Q2 2016 U.S. Residential Property Vacancy and Zombie Foreclosure Report:

“Lenders have been taking advantage of the strong seller’s market to dispose of lingering foreclosure inventory.” 

Bottom Line

In most housing markets, don’t wait for this additional competition to hit the market. If you are considering selling your house, now may be the time.

When my husband and I first started our house search, we were not completely sure what we wanted. We met with Judi Ross and she spent a great deal of time with us to determine what we needed/wanted, after which she showed us several options (condos, houses), which helped narrow down our search. She expertly guided us through the real estate maze to help us discover the house that was perfect for us. Mrs. Ross has an incredible knowledge of the Savannah area and has an intuitive vision for expertly guiding her clients through the maze of real estate choices in this area. Her experience and vast familiarity of the greater tri-county area make Judi Ross is the consummate real estate agent. Scott and Elaine Nelson
