Wednesday Mornings at Ponce


Every week, Ponce Realty sends out an enewsletter with updates, stories, and general info about the real estate industry in Atlanta and across the nation. If you would like to receive this weekly, please email wednesdays@poncerealty.biz!

Wednesday Mornings at Ponce is expanding to facebook! That's right, thanks to the support we've received from our dear readers, we've decided to spread the love to facebook. Check us out here!

Wells Fargo fined. This story came out last week after we had sent out Wednesday Mornings on Ponce, so we wanted to share it with you now. Wells Fargo will be paying an $85 million fine to the Federal Reserve and thousands more to homeowners affected by Wells putting them into subprime loans. In addition, 16 former employees are now banned from ever working in the banking industry again.

Zillow goes public. Zillow's stock hit the market last week and the share price tripled before settling back down. Investors are embracing this as part of several internet-based IPOs to drop recently.

Best value cities. Kiplinger teamed up to explore the financial prosperity of cities across the nation. They incorporated a number of factors such as unemployment, low housing costs, and nurturing business environment.

Joke of the week. The last word in an argument is what a wife has. Anything a husband says after that is the beginning of another argument. 

Homeowners skeptical. 33 percent of homeowners polled last week said that they feel that their house is worth less than they owe. 49 percent are more confident in the value of their home and 18 percent are unser.

Coach's Corner. Dirk Zeller shows champions how to develop your pricing philosophy in this week's edition of his weekly newsletter.

"What you can't get out of, get into wholeheartedly." - writer Mignon McLaughlin

Home prices up slightly. The Case Shiller Index reported that home prices rose one percent in their 20-city index over the month of April, but that they are still down 4.5 percent from one year ago.

Packing tips for your Atlanta move

by The Zac Team at Ponce Realty

Below are a few packing tips to help make your Atlanta move smooth and easy (or easier at least - moving takes some energy!). You will save a great deal by packing yourself, so here are some guidelines:

  • Use strong containers that are in good condition and that can be secured tightly with twine or strapping tape. These can usually be purchased from your moving company. Purchase special boxes for dishes, clothing, and other special items.
  • Label each box with its content, which room it should go in, whether it is fragile, and whether it should be loaded last so as to be unloaded first.
  • Don't load more than 50 pounds into any one box, and make sure the weight is evenly distributed.
  • Cushion contents with newspaper or other packaging material to prevent breakage. Use newsprint or tissue paper for items that might be soiled by newspaper.
  • Pack books tightly on end in small boxes. Alternate bindings and wrap valuable books separately.
  • Have your rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in their wrappings for easier handling.
  • Remove all breakables and liquids from drawers and pack them separately. Seal medicines and other containers to prevent leaking and pack in a leak-proof bag or container.
  • Pack linen and cloting in drawers, but don't overload them.
  • Carry all valuables with you. Don't pack jewelry, documents, coin or stamp collections, or anything that will be difficult to replace. Contents of a safety deposit box can be moved for you by your bank. 

Hopefully these tips help! If you want to move, but have a house to sell first, give Zac a call at 404.564.7200 - we'll take good care of you!

Suggestions for packing and moving your house plants

by The Zac Team at Ponce Realty

Got a green thumb? Want to make sure your house plants make it through your next big move intact? You can take them with you without harming them - here are some tips!

  • Call your local U.S. Department of Agriculture to check on regulations if moving from one state to another. Many states have restrictions on certain kinds of plants to prevent importing bugs or pests that can destroy valuable cash crops in that state.
  • A couple of weeks before you move, prune plants to facilitate packing. Consult a florist or plant book for instructions.
  • A week before your move, put your plants in a black plastic bag with a bug / pest strip, conventional flea collar, or bug powder in the bag before you put the plant in. Close the bag and place in a cool area overnight. This will kill any pests on the plant or in the soil.
  • The day before your move, set the boxes aside and mark "DO NOT LOAD" so they won't be taken with the moving van.
  • On the day you leave, close boxes, punch air holes in the top, and load in your car.
  • When on the road, be careful where you park your car. Look for a shaded area in summer and a sunny spot in winter.
  • Unpack the plants as soon as you can after arriving. Remove plants through the bottom of the box in order to avoid breaking the stems. Do not expose the plants to too much sunlight at first. Let them get accustomed to more light gradually.
  • If you must leave your plants behind, then take cuttings. Put them in a plastic bag with wet paper towels around them.

If you ever have questions about moving (or buying a house to move into or selling a house to move out of), please give Zac a call at 404.564.7200!
