September... the month football begins, families settle into the school year, and we all look forward to relief from the heat and humidity.
This month's real estate section offers tools and resources based on lifestyle and transitions. In light of rising interest rates and home values, if you are considering a change of residence based on current or future needs, now is the time to invest. First-time home buyers, growing families with a need to upsize, and those looking to simplify and downsize - all will find advice and ideas to help you achieve your goals.
Other topics this month include:
Staying Ahead of the Curb: Value-driven curb appeal with a high ROI and fall decor for your porch.
Home Design Elements: Trends in lighting, window treatments and flooring.
Between Seasons in Atlanta: Georgia football schedules, REI's best hikes, free jazz concert series, the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants, art festivals, Georgia State Fair, Rosh Hashanah Ranger Day, and the Atlanta Greek Festival!
As we transition into a new season, you might know of someone who wants to make a transition of their own. Please keep me in mind if you or someone you know is considering a Fall move!
