' tis the season to be jolly...

We all love being creative during the holidays---wrapping gifts, preparing food, and decorating the house. And nothing is more fulfilling than making DIY gifts :)

You can showcase your creative side on everything from personalized gift tags to a mini bar in a jar...the options are endless.

Nearly 28% of homes listed in Atlanta experienced a price drop in the four weeks ending September 16—up 9 percentage points from last year.

Second, prices keep going up, while the number of sales falls.
