Atlanta to Get Major League Soccer Team

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
Back in December of last year, Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber talked about expanding MLS into Atlanta. Fast forward to April 16, 2014, you now have him awarding the League's 22nd team to the city. 
 
Under the wing of Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the MLS franchise will find its home at the Falcon's new stadium.
 
The team has yet to get a name and a logo, both of which will be announced later. They are, however, asking for suggestions on the name so feel free to reach the League if you have any ideas.

Eventbrite came up with a list of "America's Most Carpe Diem Cities," which details places where people like to go out there, live life, and have fun, and Atlanta made it in at #1. It has the most number of event-going people relative to its population.

Atlanta
Washington, D.C.
San Francisco
Austin
Seattle
Portland, Oregon
Minneapolis

"Hollywood of the South"...Not too Shabby, Atlanta!

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
 
When green screens and giant film sets just won’t cut it, you film on location–and Atlanta is starting to become a Mecca for this kind of activity here in the South. The 2002 legislation passed by the State of Georgia that granted tax incentives to the film industry certainly helped set the stage.

The 80s were when Little Darlings and Driving Miss Daisy put the city firmly on screen, if only just for a while. Fast forward to the present day and you see Fast & Furious 7The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, and Term Life setting up shop here. Heck, even TV wants a piece of the pie with Halt and Catch Fire making its presence known.
 
Cue increased sightings of many famous people.

Garage Sale Helpful Hints

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

1. Allow plenty of time – three to four weeks – to prepare for the sale.

2. Choose a date that will not conflict with holidays or other special events that might lure prospective customers away.

3. Weekends are more convenient for more people than weekdays.

4. Your sale is likely to attract more customers if you join together with neighbors in a larger effort with more merchandise. Some home owners groups are sponsoring neighborhood sales that are proving popular.

5. Practical household goods, bicycles, children’s toys and clothes, sports equipment, and garden tools are popular items; adult clothing has less appeal and should be priced accordingly. Ideally, a place for trying clothes on should be provided.

6. Merchandise your items attractively in neat, clean surroundings. Paper tablecloths offer a pretty setting for glass and ornamental items. Cluster things in categories; place most desirable items in the back of the garage so browsers are urged to look at other merchandise on their way to the most popular items.

7. Have a 25 cent miscellaneous table for youthful shoppers.

8. All items should be clean, polished, and in good repair. Clothes should be sized accurately and hung on a temporary rack using two ladders and a pole.

9. Locate your appliance table near an outlet so customers may try before they buy.

10. Be sure there is adequate parking space and a place to load large items.

11. Have plenty of paper bags and boxes for packing and newspapers for wrapping glass items.

12. Place a classified ad in the local papers, including three or four specific items for sale, directions, and other pertinent details.

13. Take advantage of free publicity provided by bulletin boards in grocery stores and other public places.

14. Provide directional signs to your property if needed using an indelible felt tip pen.

15. If your house is listed for sale, have your Realtor hold an open house on the same day as the garage sale, thus increasing interest in both the house and the sale.

16. Visit other sales to form an idea on how to price things, but remember that garage sale shoppers are looking for “bargains”. Be prepared to bargain and lower your prices.

17. Really valuable items such as antiques should not be sold at a garage sale, because it is unlikely they will bring the desired price from bargain-minded shoppers. On the other hand, nothing is too worthless to be valuable to someone. Have a giveaway box for old magazines and other assorted odds and ends.

18. Post a notice that all sales are final and payment must be in cash.

19. Have plenty of change in a cash box kept in a protected spot. Keep a record of sales, especially when there are several sellers. One recording device that is simple and efficient is to use small white stickers to price items and when the item is purchased, remove the sticker and place it next to the name of the seller.

After holding one or two garage sales, you can probably add some newly discovered tips of your own. A bit of organization will make for a successful sale and an uncluttered house.
