Spring Home Bidding Strategies-JYB Realty

Our real estate agents at Josey Young & Brady Realty have made it easier than ever to explore the best Atlanta homes for sale. No matter what time of year it is, we give you the winning advantage with accurate advice you can count on.

Real estate markets are built on cycles. There are small cycles that affect only one neighborhood or community, and bigger ones that impact the entire country. One of the most important is the cycle of transaction activity in real estate.

Spring is usually the busiest time of year for buying and selling a house in Atlanta. That means the competition is higher for the best properties. It's even more important than usual to make sure you have a bidding plan in mind before you contact a buyer.

As with any other purchase, lots of factors go into pricing. While price is never an exact science, a seller who has retained the services of a leading real estate agent is much more likely to price a property in a way that reflects its fair market value.

Connecting with sellers whose price point is already reasonable can help you avoid dealing with unrealistic price demands. Still, negotiating is an art. Psychology and persuasive powers play a role. So does strategy. Your real estate agent can help with all of the above!

Atlanta St. Patrick's Day Parade-Josey Young & Brady Realty

Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day, and nowhere is that more true than in Atlanta, home of one of the country's oldest and largest St. Patrick's Day parades. Want to partake in some luck o' the Irish as you tour Atlanta homes for sale? Here's what you should know to join in the fun and festivities on Saturday, March 16.

History of the St. Patrick's Day Parade

In 1858, the Hibernian Benevolent Society held Atlanta's first St. Patrick's Day parade to honor the rich heritage of Irish immigrants in the city. Specific recognition was given to Father Thomas O'Reilly and the Hibernian Rifles, who played an important role in Atlanta during the Civil War.

Father O'Reilly earned respect tending to the religious needs of both Union and Confederate soldiers. When General William Sherman captured Atlanta, O'Reilly led a group that ultimately convinced Sherman to spare City Hall, the courthouse, and five churches, including O'Reilly's own Immaculate Conception.

The Hibernian Rifles, named after a nationalist militia group in Ireland, also stood up against Sherman's "scorched earth" campaign. In gratitude, Oakland Cemetery set aside a plot dedicated to the Hibernian Rifles and members of the HBS.
