Home: Spacious Renovation in Brookwood Hills (Ransom Team)

August 26, 2010
324 Camden Road

324 Camden Road

Standing on the sidewalk in front of this charming Brookwood Hills home you will think you are about to step foot into the perfect little cottage.  324 Camden Road is perfect, but it is certainly not little.  Spacious and diligently renovated you will be speechless when you discover all the wonders of the 1964 home.

Step through the red front door and you will immediately realize the home is much bigger than it appeared.  To your left is a formal dining room and to your right a front living room with built-in bookshelves and a fireplace.  The room has two floor-to-ceiling windows on each end.  You can enjoy the openness the windows create as the natural light falls into the room.

Family Room

Family Room

A back room that was most likely originally paneled in dark wood has been painted white with charming contrasting trim.  The room has built-in shelving and a new custom built wet bar.  The addition of the bar will make having an impromptu party a breeze.  Everything you need is right here in one place.  The current owners also use this space as a place to relax and watch TV. 

Kitchen

Kitchen

It is also easy to tell the person that remodeled this house likes to cook and entertain.  The kitchen is not only highly functional, it is extremely appealing.  Dark stained cabinets, granite countertops, tumbled tile up the walls and a lead glass window will tantalize your senses.  Viking appliances, including a double range with double ovens, might make you think you are in a top chef’s kitchen.  A separate beverage refrigerator will help make ample room for all of your masterpieces in your Sub-Zero refrigerator. This room may make a chef out of even the most challenged cook!

The master suite will accommodate a king size bed, dressers/chest of drawers and a sitting area.  The walk-in closet is tucked neatly into a corner on the way to the bath.  Separate sinks are encased in antiqued cabinetry with multiple drawers and cabinets.  There is a separate shower with frameless glass doors and a whirlpool tub.

Backyard

The first floor provides easy access to a bluestone tile patio covered by a trellis.  A built-in gas grill and cooking station make outdoor entertaining just as easy as indoor entertaining.  Access to the remaining yard can be reached by a few stairs connected to the grilling and dining area.

It is truly remarkable what has been done with this property.  So much has been added without taking away from the beauty of the original structure.

New SiteSeer3D version provides cutting-edge technology

August 3, 2010

Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty is thrilled to offer our agents and in turn their clients  an impressive new tool that provides cutting-edge technology in marketing listings in 3D (web, print and video).  The new version of SiteSeer3D provides buyers with a virtual helicopter tour of real estate listings and their neighborhood.

Version 3 significantly expands the capabilities of SiteSeer3D to include:

  • automated tours of listings in 3D
  • 3D video tour generation
  • 3D landscape customization
  • sharing of listings using social media and e-mail

Tour Listings in 3D
Buyers and agents can run a standard property search and preview the results simply by clicking on the “Tour Listings” button.  This new feature virtually flies around each property and includes a slide show of interior and exterior photos for each.  See what this cool tool will do! View an example 3D property tour.

Create 3D Videos
Agents can now share 3D video tours of listings with their clients and use 3D videos to market listings.  Brokerages can put their flat panel displays to better use by marketing their listings in 3D.  Agents and brokers can run a search and request a tour video of the results by simply clicking on the movie camera icon.  3D videos can even be added to websites and posted to YouTube.  View an example 3D video.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Customize your 3D Landscape
Now agents can customize their 3D landscape with information that is important to buyers, but may be difficult to visualize. 

Share Listings with Social Media and Buyers
SiteSeer3D Version 3 makes it easier to share property information and tours using e-mail and social media. Agents can email listing to buyers and post property tours on their favorite social media sites.  Buyers can share homes they are interested in with their trusted network.

These new features were developed as the result of customer input on ways to make SiteSeer3D more powerful and easier to use.

Working with the team at GeoData has been a real pleasure”, stated David Boehmig, President and Founder of Atlanta Fine Homes.  “The software performs as promised and has been a real differentiator for our agents and clients.  Suggestions for enhancing SiteSeer3D are always well received and many have been implemented into Version 3.  It’s like having your own web development team on staff!  We couldn’t be more pleased with SiteSeer3D.”

Most Americans See Home Prices Stable or Rising

May 10, 2010
Submitted by David Boehmig, President and Founder

Submitted by David Boehmig, President and Founder

Taken from Gallup

by Dennis Jacobe, Ph.D

Lower but stabilizing home prices combined with continued low mortgage rates have persuaded 72% of Americans that now s a “good time” to buy a house- essentially the same percentage as a year ago, but up 19 points from 2008. 

Better Price Expectations

More importantly, Americans’ expectations about housing prices have improved markedly from last year-potentially encouraging prospective buyers to take advantage of the current home buying opportunity, and thereby making it easy for homeowners to sell. Thirty- four percent of Americans  expects the average price of houses in their area to increase over the next year- up 12 points from last year, and the highest such expectations in Gallup’s monitoring since June 2007.

When this is combined with the 43% expecting home prices to stay the same, a total of 77% of Americans see housing values in their area stabilizing or moving higher during the year ahead.  To the degree that potential homebuyers agree, this should significantly reduce their fear that the homes they buy could decline in value shortly after purchase. 

Expectations for housing prices are best in the East and West, followed closely by the South; they are poorest in the Midwest.

Americans’ recognition that now is a good time to buy a house is good news not only everyone associated with the real estate business but also for the economy overall.  Even better, it appears that in many local real estate markets, housing price expectations are for stable or increasing price over the next 12 months, giving prospective homebuyers in theses areas another reason to buy now.  Further, mortgage money from the federal government continues to be available at historically low rates, although today’s underwriting standards are more stringent than those during the housing boom.

While the overhand of foreclosures and distress sales continue to depress in some areas, the basic problem facing housing in 2010-2011 is the same as that challenging the overall economy: jobs.  Buying a home is the most important purchase and the largest financial commitment most people make during their lives.  For most American, it is hard to feel financially secure enough to make such a commitment in an economy in which  20% of the US workforce is underemployed.
