Atlanta Parks to Ride an E-Scooter - JYB Realty

If you own an e-scooter, it's important to have fun and interesting places nearby where you can ride it. When looking for a home, parks in the area and their scooter access will likely be a concern. Fortunately, our real estate agents can connect you with homes in a variety of interesting areas, near parks with great views, wide-open spaces, and paths to ride your scooter freely. In fact, if you don't have a scooter of your own, many of these parks have them for rent through Bird, Atlanta's scooter rental service. Here are five of the best Atlanta parks for scooter enthusiasts.

  • Piedmont Park - 1320 Monroe Dr. NE, Atlanta, GA 30306
    About a mile northeast of Downtown Atlanta, Piedmont Park features a two-and-a-half-mile loop that's perfect for exploring on your e-scooter. It also has three acres of off-leash dog park and a walking history tour of the area's physical and historical evolution.

Sun Mapping - Homeowners - JYB Realty

If you've been looking at some of the beautiful landscaping surrounding many Atlanta homes for sale and wondering why some of them look so much nicer than yours, it may be a simple matter of sun mapping. That may sound like the latest hack, but it's actually a tried-and-true procedure used by the most successful gardeners. It's simply a method of identifying where to place each plant according to its sunlight needs. While there are gadgets available to do the job, most are a waste of money. They do measure the sunlight accurately, but they don't create the map that you will ultimately need. Why not enjoy your time outdoors and do the job right without spending a penny?

  • Sketch the area to be planted
    This may be a simple rectangle, but more than likely, there will be trees and walls that create shady spots throughout the day. These are the areas you will eventually identify and record. The map doesn't need to be exact or to scale as long as you can follow it later. One thing to consider is the shade that will be cast by the canopy of a tree without leaves. You may have to estimate.

Birria Tacos - Atlanta, GA - JYB Realty

It's Tuesday night, and you don't feel like cooking. Some Mexican food would be great, but not just any Mexican food. If you really want to make your Taco Tuesday a cut above, you'll want to find some birria tacos. Birria is a delicious meat stew (traditionally goat meat, but it can also be made with beef or lamb) that's sweet, sour, spicy, tender, and amazing. It's great on its own, and it's even better as a taco filling.

But you've just moved to a new house. Where are the good Mexican restaurants in your area, and which ones serve birria? Fear not. Our real estate agents know where all the best places for birria tacos in the Atlanta area and can help you find one near you. Here are some favorites, to take your Taco Tuesday to the next level.

  • DMT - 479-B Flat Shoals Ave., Atlanta, GA 30316
    Tuesday through Friday nights, as well as weekend afternoons, you can find this pop-up in front of We Suki Suki Vietnamese restaurant, in East Atlanta Village. The birria tacos from DMT have delicious braised beef on a corn tortilla, along with onion, cilantro, and avocado salsa. You can also get the birria-queso taco, which comes with cheese. In addition to tacos, they also have mulitas, tortas, and a host of other amazing menu options, including a few surprise offerings that they announce on their Instagram.

Getting Paint Right the First Time - JYB Realty

Few decorating moves can transform the ambiance of a room as easily and inexpensively as a fresh coat of paint. The shade we pick to adorn our interior walls provides a background on which the rest of our aesthetic choices are based on. Picking the right color, however, is no walk in the park. It's a boggling world of various shades, tints, and hues, each one just a little different from the last. Many just choose their favorite color or go all-out with the color of the day, only for it to look like a dud once it's up on the walls. To put this age-old problem to rest, our real estate agents have compiled a list of the best tips on how to find the perfect interior paint color the first time.

  • Do Your Homework Before Shopping
    Finding the perfect paint color starts at home. Before you make a trip to the paint store, gather inspiration from fabric swatches, magazines, and catalogs. Pinterest is also a great place to start, so login, make an inspiration board for your room, and pin designs that catch your eye. The inspirational ideas can help you visualize the perfect space and narrow down your paint color choices.
