I'm sure you may be wondering what happened to our distressed seller at Wade Plantation in Martinez GA.   
 
After putting out the blog and entering this home in the MLS, the interest was incredible.  Buyers and agents came out of the woodwork  - many new inquiries and some buyers that we had not heard from in many months.   After sending out about 300 e-mails as well as bulletins in the MLS and other marketing methods, we ended up with three solid written offers at the end of the first day on the market  and 2 verbal offers. Many more buyers who had not acted quickly were remorseful that they had not jumped on this opportunity to have instant equity in a great neighborhood.

Those who are familiar with the current new construction sales activity wouldn't believe it, but I Friday night at 7:30 PM these are just some of the cars outside the Crown site office in Willhaven community.  On Friday night most realtors and builders are doing other things but this is an exception. There were well over a dozen cars, buyers and contracts being written in tours of the model home.

Crown Communities is making a big splash in the Augusta area. The homes are offering incredible value along with high-quality materials. There are currently five different developments scattered across Colombia and Richmond Counties and more to come.

My client, a hard working, kind lady, has been trying for a while to work things out with her lender to stay in her home. For weeks and weeks she has not gotten a straight answer from her lender and has been unable to stop the foreclosure process.

This is truly a distress sale!  This great Martinez GA home is convenient to Ft. Gordon & shopping and has  almost 2700 sq ft, 4BR/2 1/2 BA,  2-car side entry garage and 1/2 acre of land.  At $149,900  it is priced about $50,000 below value!  The home across the street is listed for $299,900!

She needs to get an offer before July 7, 2009 to avoid the inevitable. We really need your help as a buyer!  If you know of anyone who may be interested, please give them our contact information. We thank you for

 Battle lines are being drawn as the new homes are being built at a much lower cost and are loaded with upgrades previously out of reach to average consumers. Over the last few years a couple of Atlanta based builders such as Trillium as well as R&B Construction recognized Augusta as a great opportunity and started building.
