Walkable Neighborhoods, Atlanta Living!

Urban living and walkable neighborhoods are trending and popular among homeowners! Many see this as a better quality of life with much less exposure to traffic and commute times. There is also an increasing recognition of value in ready access to offices, boutique shops, tasty eateries, fun coffee stops, centers of culture, art and history, entertainment, metro area parks, and convenience services from the drycleaner to the fitness center – all just a short walk from home!

As you’re browsing the CONDOATLANTA Photo Galleries, we hope you enjoy the updated map and Walk Score features in addition to expanded community descriptions and photos! Watch for more updates to come… CONDOATLANTA is working in earnest on a total site overhaul. We’re growing, growing, growing!

Homeowner’s Insurance Coverage – A Great Time to Check In!

It’s a great time of year to check your homeowner’s insurance coverage… Compare rates and options, shop insurance products for value, and be sure to review your owner’s policy against community or HOA coverage so you can secure the most seamless coverage possible with the help of your insurance agent. From time to time, communities make changes to their policies (carriers and/or coverage). Some communities will shop carriers, adjust deductibles or scope of coverage or accept first loss provisions to try to reduce the cost of community coverage.

Your personal coverage needs may also have changed. It’s a good idea to review the question of “riders” to your policy once a year as well (or any time there is a change to your circumstances that would need an evaluation).  Among other items, you may want to ask about coverage for expensive jewelry, fine art, family heirlooms, camera equipment and computers, water beds, aquaria and even some kinds of pets from exotic animals to four legged buddies including dogs.

Periodic review of the master policy declarations with the guidance of your insurance agent will help you secure the best policy for your needs and budget!

For those homeowners who have financing on their homes… When there is any change to coverage (community or owner’s policy), be sure to notify your mortgage company. Mortgage statements vary from one company to the next, but often you’ll find instructions on the reverse side of the monthly statement which include contact information for insurance. Be sure to relay updates or changes or corrections with a reference to your property address and mortgage account number and send with proof or confirmation of delivery.  Always follow up to be sure your communications have been received and to answer any questions your mortgage lender may have about your insurance account.

One additional thought for now… Be sure payment is timely made and you have confirmation that your policy remains in continuous effect.

We hope you’ll remember us when you’re ready to take the next steps toward owning a first home or transitioning from one home to another!

The Buzz about Property Taxes in Greater Metro Atlanta

Property taxes have become the topic of a lot of conversation throughout Greater Atlanta!

Be sure to check in with your property tax office, and monitor your property tax valuations and billings. Many parts of Atlanta have seen strong property value appreciation, and property taxes are reflecting those value adjustments. Local news outlets are reporting stories of homeowners who have been taken by unpleasant surprises as a result since some of the adjustments (not all) are coming in as increases at or above 50%.

For homeowners who escrow their taxes, this may mean having to “make up payments” in coming billing cycles to cover any deficits.

For homeowners who pay their taxes directly, this may mean a budgeting shortfall which may not be recognized until the tax billings come due.

If you have any questions or concerns, you will want to address those with your property tax office. If you believe your property taxes have been billed at too high a rate, you’ll want to understand the appeals process including any deadlines.
