I’m a bit stressed. About what? The market, our zip code, mortgage fraud- it’s effects on us and the fact that the West End is constantly over looked as Atlanta’s HOT in-town city by magazines. If I pick up another Atlanta Newcomer and see only Grant Park, East Atlanta, Virgina Highlands listed…I’ll be forced to ask Carl Ness (the mastermind behind our Christmas party that had us on the front page of the AJC) to write one of profound letters on the West End to the editors…
I know this all will change, and the “Nay Sayers”, and those that over looked us will regret it- either they will regret it or try to jump on the band wagon at the end and claim to have known it all along- or have been apart of it’s growth and discovery.
I guess I shouldn’t be too upset about us being over looked. After all, this does allow those seriously and committed to being apart of the community to move in and afford to buy while working on many of our ‘grass roots’ projects. …and I guess I can’t be too mad because unlike other locations, at least our neighbors are not stressing over their mortgage payments in this declining market. …And I guess I should not be stressed, because what goes down will always come back up…right? Right? Especially in Real Estate. Sure it will. We know Real Estate- and this is just a snag that was going to happen sooner or later. At least I didn’t pay 1million dollars for my home and it’s now appraising at 500K….. then it would be time for me to head south…….or to Maine,(the only state that did not dip in value this quarter)
Staying positive… that’s the key.
This too shall pass…but in the mean time, while I’m venting let the record show that I really DISLIKE the new beta yahoo mailbox.
