Looking for Listings

June 10th, 2015 | Posted by Rich in Blog Post - (0 Comments)

We recently sold two land parcels – one in Cherokee County and one in Murray County. We are once again looking for additional listings.  If you’re thinking of selling whether it’s an established horse farm or raw land, please give us a call. We cover most of North Georgia and would welcome the opportunity to view and make a recommendation for your property.  We’ve been selling horse farms and land in North Georgia for 12 years and haven’t tired of it yet. We love what we do.  Give us a call at 770-289-7272 or via email at rich@richvigue.com.

Looking for land?  If so, unless you’re paying cash, you first need to get up to speed on financing possibilities relative to your requirements.  While your credit worthiness is an important factor in getting a land loan from a financial institution, the amount of down payment is critical.  Unlike mortgages for subdivision homes land loans don’t come with 3%, 4%, or 5 % down.  Typically, these loans require a minimum of 25% down or more depending on the intended use of the parcel.  Elementary math shows that if the parcel costs $100,000, that’s $25,000 down; $200,000 = $50,000 down, and so on.  If you want land, but don’t have the liquidity to pay 25% up front, the answer may be to find a parcel that comes with owner financing. Typically, owners will do financing with less down, a lower interest rate, but want a shorter term.  Like everything else in life, loan terms including rate, amortization, down payment, etc, are all negotiable.  Be honest with yourself.  Look at your needs versus your available funds, review these with a professional lender and, if need be, limit your land search to those parcels with owner financing.  You’ll save yourself and your Realtor a lot of time.      

Like Arnold, I’m back.

My Associate, Melissa Freeman, kept the ship afloat while I sojourned in China and Thailand for 3 weeks.  I’m glad to be back.  We had a good time while visiting our kids and grandchildren, but the trip out there and back is a killer.  A couple thoughts;  I really, really like American food;  I’m particularly fond of the English language; My next trip will be out west – western U.S. that is.  We have a new 50 acre listing in Pickens County – check it out – and expect a couple more listings in the not too distant future.  In the next few weeks if I’m not doing real estate it’ll be because I’ll be riding my horse and thanking God that I live where I do.

Just listed a 50 acre parcel in North Georgia that will make a great recreational property or private estate. There’s some pasture on the property and lots of wooded area with a couple trails and a year-round creek. Click Here for details.

Just received a contract for the 72 acre parcel in Resaca on the Gordon/Murray County line.  This is a great property and the buyer will be using it for recreational purposes including horseback riding and hunting during seasons.  There are some great deals out there for this kind of property. Let me know if I can help you find your piece of heaven.  Call me on my cell at 770-289-7272.

Lakota Cove

January 29th, 2015 | Posted by Rich in Blog Post - (0 Comments)

Lakota Cove is a rustic furnishings gallery located in Jasper, GA. It is owned by my  good friend, Linda Magness, who loves  mountain living, rustic furnishings, western décor, and our four legged friends.  Here’s a Youtube video emphasizing western decor that was done a few years ago. The background music is Amazing Grace sung in the Cherokee language.   If you’re in the north Georgia Mountains you should make it a point to stop by the gallery.

A little over a year ago  I found myself looking for listings due to fourth quarter 2013 sales activity.  I find myself in the same position in January 2015.  I’m looking for listings in north Georgia again.  Whether you have an established farm or just land, if you’re interested in selling, call me at 770-289-7272 or email me at rich@RichVigue.com.  I’d welcome the opportunity to discuss the market and how I might help to sell your farm.
