Buying an Older Home - JYB Realty

Buying an older home can be a one-of-a-kind experience. Our real estate agents understand the sentimental appeal of a home whose walls are filled with history and character. If you're thinking about purchasing older Atlanta homes for sale, there's a lot to consider. We've laid out the pros and cons to help you decide if it's worth it.

The Pros

  • Charm and Craftsmanship
    These days, homes are somewhat cookie-cutter in style- they tend to have the same features and feel. Older houses come with plenty of character and charm. From the wide-plank wood floors, balustrades, and ornate stone fireplaces to vintage door knockers, sloping ceilings, and crown moldings in the corners, there are so many fun details to love in an older home.

Pet Fire Safety Tips - Homeowners - JYB Realty

Today, the majority of American families own pets. As important members of your household, it's vital to make pets feel at home and take the necessary measures to protect them. If you're finding it difficult to find a pet-friendly house in a safe and welcoming neighborhood, our real estate agents can help you out.

In honor of National Pet Fire Safety Day, on July 15th, here are some ways you can make your home safer for your furry friends.

  • Prevent Your Pets From Starting Fires
    Pets start nearly 1,000 home fires every year, making it necessary to pet-proof your home and eliminate any potential hazards, such as loose wires. Other tips include:
    • Lock or cover stove knobs. Your pet may nudge the knobs just enough to ignite the burners.
    • Do not leave candles unattended. It's a good idea to extinguish all open flames so a stray tail or paw doesn't tip them over.
    • Beware of glass water bowls on wooden decks, especially on hot summer days. Hot rays from the sun can ignite wood when filtered through glass.

Atlanta Road Races - JYB Realty

August and September are prime time for road races in Atlanta, as the schedule fills with various runs/walks in local parks and other scenic locations. They're frequently accompanied by music and other entertainment, and many help raise money for local or national non-profits, so you're helping out a good cause when you run.

Our real estate agents hope you can hit the road running at these races around Atlanta.

  • Atlanta Dogwood Festival Mimosa 5K – Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021 – Piedmont Park, 400 Park Dr., Atlanta, GA 30309
