New Year, New Group #AskTheSouthernGirls

Happy 2017, friends! With a new year comes new ventures & a revamped series. No longer will I have #AskAllise, it's now officially #AskTheSouthernGirls. Over the fall of 2016, Allise teamed up with her good friend, barre buddy & now business partner, Carrie. I'm SO excited for these ladies! Over the holidays, they threw an amazing #BusinessShower at Bartaco in Buckhead. To see how the blog has brought all these amazing women into my life, leaves me grateful beyond words. If you haven't followed this fab duo yet, head over to their Insta. *WARNING* You may start to suffer from major house envy!

Since everyone is in full on resolution/goal making/resetting mode, now is the time to start planning this month out! Whether you're a home owner or a house hunter (you've got this), Allise & Carrie have come up with 5 tips that both can & should be doing this month!

5 Things You Should Be Doing in January

Home Owners

1. Watch the weather to make sure that when the temp drops below freezing you need to keep water running at night so the pipes will not burst! Better safe than sorry!
2. File for homestead exemption. Taxes are due soon!
3. Make sure you fur babies are warm! This is not the time to leave your animals out at night!
4. Keep your pest control company on the reg, this is the time where creatures want to share your domain!
5. Call us now if you are thinking of selling in the spring! Spring market is less than 60 days away, and it's time to start preparations!!

House Hunters

1. Buy now! Don't wait until the spring to buy! Some housing markets increase upwards of 6-9% during spring and summer, so save money and buy now!
2. Interest rates are going up, so it's important to talk to your lender. If you need contacts for lenders just reach out to us and we can provide you with two or three of the top lenders in the ATL!
3. Inventory is low, so be patient!! You will find "the one!" If you find the perfect home though, act fast...like we always tell our clients "if you love it so do 100 other people!"
4. It's never too early to start your search! Why not start now?!?
5. Have fun!!! Stop for Starbucks on your hunts, turn on the fireplace while you are looking at the house, and if you're lucky enough to be our clients we will even turn our seat warmers for you!

You're welcome for adding to your already lengthily to-do list (or is that just me)! So excited for this new series! As always, feel free to comment below or send me an email. Love to hear what you need help with or questions you may have!
