Did you know ..Buying is 37.7% Cheaper than Renting? Find your new home at Keystone Gates!

For years, many would tell you that buying a new home was not a good investment but the tables have turned on this idea.  Did you know that buying a home is 37.7% cheaper nationwide than renting a home?

Trulia recently produced a Rent VS Buy Report showing that rents in 100 metro areas have savings ranging from 17.4% less expensive in Honolulu (HI) to up to 53.2% less expensive in the Miami and West Palm Beach area (FL).  So what is Atlanta's average?  As you can see from the picture below, Atlanta area comes in at 40-60% less expensive to buy a home than to rent a home!  That is substantial savings any way you look at it.

ZziA couple of interesting notes to add is that interest rates continue to stay low even though homes have appreciated in value around the country, they haven't greatly affected rental appreciation. Rates would have to reach 9.1% for renting to be cheaper than investing or buying a new home at today's rates of 3.75. So, buying a new home a Keystone Gates just makes sense and Rocklyn Homes are well-built quality homes with all of the gorgeous detailing homebuyers expect in a new home.

HOMEAID ATLANTA CELEBRATES 50TH CARE DAY

Atlanta nonprofit partners with BOMA Georgia for special volunteer work day event

Atlanta, GA – On November 18, HomeAid Atlanta celebrated its 50th HomeAid Care Day, and its sixth partnering with BOMA Georgia at Solomon's Temple in southwest Atlanta. Approximately 180 volunteers were in attendance to help make improvements at the facility, which provides transitional housing and programs aimed at empowerment and self-sufficiency for homeless Atlanta women and children. Also in attendance were special guests David Dreyer, Georgia House Representative-Elect District 59; Mandy Crater, HomeAid Atlanta Executive Director; and BOMA GA president Ian Hughes, LEED Green Associate - Lillibridge.

ZzhThis special event also marked the fifth time HomeAid and BOMA Georgia partnered together for a Care Day since 2009, for a total of six Care Day locations. Jean Hilyard, HomeAid Atlanta Director of Community Engagement stated,

“BOMA Georgia is an incredibly organized group that HomeAid Atlanta is honored to have the pleasure of working with. Their member organizers this year, Carla Moule and Kacey Levine, worked diligently to secure material and labor donations for the BOMA – HomeAid Care Day. BOMA Georgia members seriously stepped up to make a big difference at Solomon’s Temple. We are proud to call BOMA Georgia a partner in assisting homeless serving organizations.”

The work completed by Care Day volunteers included rebuilding a gazebo and benches, painting two main resident living areas, pressure washing, landscaping and tree work, electrical and general repairs, ceiling tile replacement, parking lot paving/striping, floor cleaning and more. The Care Day provided approximately $40,000 in savings, handling these much needed facility improvements for Solomon's Temple. The savings assist Solomon’s Temple in meeting more direct client needs such as case management and food.

“I had so much fun during the Care Day just watching everything unfold,” said Kecia Baker, Solomon’s Temple Director of Program and Facilities. “The housing building and grounds are just ‘awe’mazing! Everyone was so friendly and loving. Thank you for the fantastic job orchestrating the event, and it was a pleasure to work with you again.”

HomeAid began its Care Day initiative in 2008 and since then has provided savings of approximately $420,000 to Atlanta organizations serving homeless families and individuals. Care Days provide Atlanta businesses and organizations an opportunity to make a one-day commitment that has a lasting impact on local nonprofit organizations serving homeless families and individuals. HomeAid is proud of this outreach initiative and looks forward to continuing to help meet the building repair and improvement needs of Atlanta homeless service providers in the years to come.

HomeAid Atlanta, founded in 2001, is a nonprofit organization that builds new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. HomeAid works in partnership with the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, as well as community building industry organizations, to assist people experiencing temporarily homelessness. To date, HomeAid Atlanta has completed over 60 housing, remodel and care day projects at locations that serve victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, abused and abandoned children, and more. Learn more at www.homeaidatlanta.org.

The Building Owners and Managers Association of Georgia (BOMA Georgia) is a trade association representing one of the largest and most revenue-generating industries in the state: commercial real estate. BOMA Georgia members represent building ownership, professional property management firms, professional service providers, contract services, and more. Our members are responsible for the safety and security of hundreds of thousands of employees housed in facilities managed by this industry.

Solomon’s Temple is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to the eradication of homelessness by empowering women and their children to overcome life’s challenges, realize their potential, define their own destiny and become vital factors in the revitalization and sustainability of their community. Solomon’s Temple houses up to 144 homeless women and children. ##

Do You Know The Cost of Renting Vs Buying? Find your new home at Augustine Commons!

Have you ever considered the cost of renting vs buying a home?  You might be surprised that you can own your own home for much less than you think, and the cost of renting is much higher than the cost of buying a new home.

In years past, most people rented until they could afford to buy a home.  If you look at the numbers today, you will see that it actually costs about 30% of your median income to rent versus buying a home at 15% your median income.  That certainly makes the choice easier. 

If you are renting and think you cannot own a home....THINK AGAIN! Buying your own home is significantly less than renting!  You can either pay your landlord's mortgage and have nothing at the end of the lease or buy a new home from Augustine Commons by Award-Winning Rocklyn Homes and start building your own wealth by investing in your mortgage instead of making the landlord richer.

At Augustine Commons, you can own your own home for monthly payments around *$1204/month plus receive up to $12,000 Buyer Bonus.  [See agent for details]. Not only will there be less money out of your pocket each month but it will be your home that you can decorate any way you like and you will start building your wealth for the future.

Canton Named One of Most Charming Towns in Georgia ...find your new home at Horizon at Laurel Canyon

Imagine living in Canton, Georgia, one of the state's most charming towns according to TravelMag which released its list this month.  Canton was chosen by 50 travel writers, photographers and other professionals as one of three favorite towns with populations between 3,000 and 5,000.

 

According to the article in TravelMag "Situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Canton’s high standard of living along with a bustling social and cultural scene has helped make it one of the region’s fastest growing cities. But much more than that, it is also a place of great beauty, with various hiking trails attracting nature lovers all year round. For man-made attractions, Canton’s historical downtown district is the place to be, thanks to numerous sites and landmarks of interest such as the Cherokee Country Historical Society and the Cherokee Arts Center."
