Understand a credit score to buyour credit score is a little three-digit number that has a big impact. It can determine whether or not you are able to purchase a the house of luxury apartment of your dreams, or car or get a credit card or even a job. It not only determines your eligibility for major purchases, but also sets the favorability of your lending terms. The better your score, the lower interest rates you may receive on things like auto loans or home mortgages.

Scores typically range from 300 to 850, and the higher your score, the better. Your scores come from the credit reporting agencies, and there are three major ones (Equifax, Transunion and Experian). They receive information from your lenders and compile that information into your

credit report. Your score is a numerical representation of that information and lets lenders know how much of a risk an individual may be when it comes to lending; i.e., what is the chance that you will pay your bills. You can see what it is in your credit report for free — everyone is entitled to one free credit report from each of the three major credit agencies each year, so you can check your credit report three times per year. When you do, you can also view your credit score for an additional small fee. Read More→

Atlanta apartment industry

There was a time when homeownership was the American Dream and rentals were thought of as just a transitory option (like I just graduated from college and still eat ramen noodles every night for dinner, but enjoy being on my own). Then, the housing market crashed, seeming to solidify dream of owning a home with many inexpensive homes suddenly available.

With the housing market inundated with inexpensive homes, foreclosures and short sales after its crash, many in the apartment business were wondering what it meant for them (and at first, it wasn’t looking too good). But now, it seems that things are taking a turn for the better according to a
Wall Street Journal article.

Among the companies reporting good news for the apartment industry is Atlanta-based Post Properties, Inc. The company asserts that the average occupancy rate is up from the previous year and now sits at 95.5 percent. Read More→

One of the benefits of living at the

Marietta apartments at Rockledge is being near all of the exciting events that Marietta has to offer. If you’re looking for a fun summer activity, then you’ll appreciate the community’s close proximity to the Chattahoochee River, Chattahoochee National Preserve and the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) where you can take a canoe trip down the river.

Each trip is led by a CNC naturalist. Your guide will introduce you to the ecology of the river and explain the cultural and natural history of the Chattahoochee, all while you enjoy the peaceful setting.

Trips are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays throughout August. You can choose to take a morning canoe ride on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. Or, if you’d prefer you can take an evening trip on Saturday or Sunday at 6 p.m. Admission is $25 for CNC members and $30 for non-members.

For more information about taking a canoe trip down the Chattahoochee River, visit the

Chattahoochee Nature Center website or call 770-992-2055. Read More→

There are so many things you can do at Rockledge while you enjoy the summer months. Residents don’t have to go far from their

Marietta apartments to enjoy swimming, tennis, sand volleyball, walking trails and more. But, if you find that the summer heat is too much to handle, you can cool off at the community movie theater located in the clubhouse.

Rockledge still has two movies left for the month including a family friendly film and one for when you want a night away from the kids:

  • Rango on Saturday, July 23 at noon
  • Limitless on Thursday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m.

While you’re at the clubhouse, don’t forget to check out all of the other amenities including the party room with billiards table, indoor basketball court and running track, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio.

And, when the weather finally begins to cool, take a hike on the Chattahoochee River Nature Trails or cookout on one of the community’s outdoor grills.

Do you want to take a tour of these homes or amenities? Rockledge would love to have you. For more information about

Rockledge or to schedule your visit, check out the website.

apartments in AtlantaAfter recent events leading to the current slump in the housing market, real estate markets are seeing more and more renters entering them. This has been the case in the Atlanta real estate market, as our city has been named the 16th-best market for rental properties.

The cities with the best rental climate generally have markets in which home prices have fallen substantially. Though it is apartments that are widely accepted as rentals, it is estimated by HomeVestors of America Inc. that 14 percent of America’s single-family homes are maintained as rental properties.

From January through May, about half of all home closings in Atlanta were under $100,000, and a further 23 percent were under $50,000, as reported by Steve Palm of Smart Numbers. Because home prices are below their previously seen average, these otherwise empty homes are easily turned into competitive rental properties. This is great news for those seeking to rent properties.

free photoThere will be a new addition to the city skyline soon enough. Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. are planning Midtown’s first high-rise multifamily project in nearly ten years.

The development, called “77 12th Street,” is to be a 22-story apartment tower located at 12th Street and Crescent Avenue. This tower is being designed by local Atlanta architects Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio LLC.

Upon completion, the new tower of high rise homes will be located across from Ri Ra, an Irish pub in the Midtown area.

In a recent interview with Atlanta Business Chronicle, Steve Selig, the president of Selig Entreprises, has dubbed the Midtown area the perfect place for such an apartment project due to its location in the heart of Atlanta, traffic grid, park, arts and educational opportunities.

In terms of Atlanta real estate, the midtown area has not seen development of a substantial new tower since the 2002 Metropolis project built by Wood Partners LLC and Novare Group Inc. Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. actually pushed this project to the top of its priority list after deciding to hold off on a project that would have created a new tower of offices in the Atlanta area.
