I believe that! I look at the computer and see a lot of nice homes with that type of basement. We just have to make up our minds where we will land. Thanks for the heads up!

PS What is Loganville like and how far is it from Tucker, Ga? What is Lawrenceville like also and how far is it from Tucker? I put this out, but the person has not read it yet. Thanks for the information.

We have a daylight basement. I didn't want to buy a house without one. Our basement in stubbed for bath but unfinished. We had some realtors come out to
start the sales process who told us a basement is a big plus. They said sometime an unfinished is better than a finished basement if the finished is dated or done unattractively.

Tucker is about 20-30 minutes away from Lawrenceville. Lawrenceville is right next to me here in Buford.

What do you think of Lawrenceville in the sense of developing and shopping area? Thank you for you input.

Well Lawrenceville is right next to Buford (where we live is right on the border of the two) and that is where the Mall of Georgia is. It's the biggest, newest mall in GA.

There is every possibly shop and restaurant you can possibly think of within a mile of the mall. It's crazy. And it's not done yet. They keep putting up more and more and more. The area is still developing.

That sounds very inviting. My husband and I want to be near "the stuff" (as we call it -- shopping area). Thanks for that description. I told him when we come down this summer, that's where I want to go. Since this market in Michigan is slow, we are going to stop concentrating on a home and look for an area to narrow down to where we want to be. When we are ready, I am sure we will have to lower the price of our home even more. The foreclosures in our subdivision will probably bring the price down automatically. Unfair, but true! You know the system about "location, location, location", no matter what the value of your home is.

Is it east, west, north or south of Tucker? Are there in golf courses in Lawrenceville or close to it?

Lawrenceville is north of Tucker. I saw that you mentioned Loganville also, which is also close to "the Stuff". Loganville is close to Lawrenceville, Snellville, Grayson and Conyers. All nice areas.

Yeah unfortunately Fair Market Value is only what someone else will pay for it. And in this market it's rough on sellers sometimes.

A house is only worth as much as it's comparable properties have sold for a lot of the time. Being clean and having all the upgrades will definitely help bring people in and get offers but they don't raise the homes value as much as most people think they should.
