Ben Ginther - Wednesday, May 24, 2017

The city of Carrollton has been in the spotlight recently through various media outlets, highlighting several draws to the town located about 45 minutes west of Atlanta. Most recently, Curbed Atlanta author Josh Green listed Carrollton as one of the top “10 Small Towns Near Atlanta You Need to Visit Soon.” Once again focusing on the completion of the 18-mile long Green Belt, he also mentions the downtown scene. Carrollton’s square offers plenty of local food, fun, and events throughout the year at the amphitheater, known as “The Amp.”  Read More

Ben Ginther - Tuesday, May 23, 2017

In a previous blog, we gave statistics showing that Carroll County is a sweet spot for investors, with rental properties in high demand, and the yield those properties are bringing (see blog post “Carroll and Paulding Among Top National Markets for Rental Demands and Yields”)  . Last week, Atlanta’s CBS 46 News featured the city of Carrollton in a story boasting more of what Carrollton has to offer – the town’s superlatives.   Read More

Upgrades and Replacements Not to Overlook in Your Rental Property

Ben Ginther - Friday, April 21, 2017

Landlords are faced with a lot of decisions when it comes to their rental properties. In which area should I purchase a home? How much should I spend? How much rent should I charge? How do I find good tenants? The list goes on and on. Something that every landlord will be faced with, at one time or another, is deciding which items to replace or upgrade in the home. Often the answer is obvious: fresh paint, new flooring, new appliances, HVAC units, roofs, etc. However, other items can be overlooked but can be equally as important.  Read More

The Importance of Renters Insurance, and What to Tell Your Tenants

Ben Ginther - Friday, April 14, 2017

We are a society that likes to insure things. We insure our homes, our car, the diamonds we wear on our fingers, our health, and even our phones. A  tenant living in a rental home is no different. Just as landlords carry an insurance policy on their investment properties, tenants can carry a renters insurance policy to cover their personal items. And although relatively cheap in cost, many tenants don’t carry it. While many landlords don’t require their tenants to carry insurance, most stress the importance of carrying such a policy, as they can be mutually beneficial to both parties. Other landlords, however, do require a policy be in place prior to a tenant taking occupancy.   Read More

Pets, or No Pets? That is the Question to Property Managers

Ben Ginther - Friday, March 31, 2017

One of the questions we get a lot in property management is whether homeowners should allow pets in their home. There is no simple answer; at the end of the day, it is the homeowner’s decision based on their past experiences, or comfort level, with tenants having pets in their home.    Read More

Carroll and Paulding Among Top National Markets for Rental Demand and Yields

Ben Ginther - Friday, January 20, 2017

Real estate investors want to know the markets in which they can get the most bang for their buck. It is important to know which markets are strong for rentals, and where they can obtain a good return; a recipe for success. In a national study, Georgia counties took six out of the top eighteen spots when it came to markets across the US that had a combination of high rental demand, and high rental yields. Two of those counties are right here in West Georgia: Carroll County and Paulding County.  Read More

New Approaches to Old Strip Malls: Part 1

Adam Hinman - Friday, December 09, 2016

After reading the opinion piece "Providing incentives to rehab old shopping centers"
in the Newnan-Times Herald, I realized similar conversations are happening in Carrollton, Douglasville, Newnan, and throughout the West Georgia region.  State-wide.  And probably throughout the country.  Every community has commercial corridors that have seen better days.  Similar stories exist.  The anchor tenants, perhaps the tenants that the buildings were built for in the first place, have left....long ago.  Over the term of their 10, 15, 20-year lease agreement, changes may have occurred in their industry, their business structure, or maybe they just wanted a new building somewhere else.  Regardless of what change occurred, the business has left but the building remains.    Read More
