Meet Kristy Baugh!

Broker, Mother, Wife, Teacher

Classy and sophisticated, Mrs. Kristy Baugh brings energy, dedication, and a passion for customer service to Nathan Fitts & Team. With an unbelievable work ethic, Kristy is up before the rooster crows and once her feet hit the ground running, she’s ready to take on all the various challenges of the day with grace, humor, and compassion.

Kristy began her career in the real estate industry back in the early 90’s alongside her husband, Charlie, when they formed Baugh Homebuilders. A passion was sparked in her and she began to make a name for herself as an agent with Hutson Realty. The couple’s passion for real estate brought their family of three through Cherokee, Cobb, Forsyth, & Paulding Counties, just to name a few, prior to their transition to the beautiful North Georgia Mountains.

With a desire to always learn, Mrs. Baugh earned her real estate broker’s license and for fifteen years, studied all aspects of real estate law, increasing her experience and perfecting her knowledge. Through the years, Kristy has seen a lot of changes in the industry, but it’s just a cycle. What’s most important is service to her customers, because even if sales go up or down, her care for clients is never-ending. Kristy loves that every day is different especially because each day holds the opportunity to help others accomplish their goals. Her favorite challenge is a client that everyone else has given up on. Kristy pulls up her boot straps and goes the extra mile to think outside of the box and make their dreams come to fruition.

Kristy’s husband, Charlie, of 27 years and their daughter, Kimberly, are both in the real estate industry as well. In fact, Kimberly serves as a licensed assistant and marketing coordinator for Nathan Fitts & Team. This isn’t the first time that Kristy and Kimberly worked together though. The family of 3 transformed their family farm into Wolf Creek Estates & Stables Wedding & Special Events Venue while Kimberly was in college. The family loved working together to make countless couples’ dreams come true; however, their passion for real estate ultimately led them to real estate full time, and the farm went back to just housing their four-legged family members – 9 Saddlebred horses, 2 dogs, & a cat… and it will soon be available for your consideration. Stay tuned to an MLS near you!

When Mrs. Baugh is not working, mucking stalls, landscaping, repairing farm tools, or cooking family meals, she serves her heart strings with the youth and children ministries at their church. It’s important to Kristy to be able to make a difference in the lives of children by leading by example and she accomplishes that mission in spades. While this honest, dependable go-getter never lets the grass grow under her feet, she delights in time spent with family & friends, fun in the sun, and exploring new places.

We Moved Downtown!

Moving on up…to the East side

Whether we are located in the North, South, East, or West, Nathan Fitts & Team loves being a part of the Blue Ridge community! Our new office, located at 3354 East First Street in Downtown Blue Ridge, couldn’t be more perfect. What were the determining factors for our move? There were three big reasons:

1. Space – Because we are the top producing real estate team, we needed more space to accommodate our stellar team members and more importantly for our customers. An open concept work area complete with a large conference room allows for regular communication on available listings between the team and privacy for clients during their real estate transactions.

2. Visibility – Although our previous space was easily accessible from Hwy 515, we were tucked in the back of the plaza and it was challenging for people to find us. Our new location puts us right in the downtown proximity allowing us to be easily seen, easily accessed, and extremely well positioned to show you what an amazing community Blue Ridge is to live, work, and play.

3. Location – As they say, “location, location, location” and we couldn’t agree more. While we were fortunate to have several fast food restaurants close by previously, our new location allows us to be within walking distance to downtown shops and a variety of dine-in restaurants like Blue Smoke BBQ and Chester Brunnenmeyer’s Bar & Grill! The options are endless and we even have the opportunity to work off our meals on the short walk back to the office!

The inside offices are now complete, and you’ll see changes to our exterior soon. We have really enjoyed being a part of Re/Max Town & Country for the last four years, and our whole team is looking forward to a bright future assisting our customers with the care and attention they deserve. We receive new listings every day, so keep checking back with us or let us list your property today!

We invite you to come visit us at our new office. If you are traveling North on Hwy 515 towards Blue Ridge, make a right on East First Street (Bill Holt Chevrolet is on the corner). Travel 1.6 miles and our office will be on the right. If you are traveling west on Hwy 76 from the Hiawassee or Blairsville area, head towards Blue Ridge and make a left on the Old US76 Connector (near Checkers). Then take a right onto Old US76 (near Pizza Hut) and you’ll come right to us. See you soon!

8 Things Every Retiree Should Have in a Home

You’ve worked hard your entire life, raised your family, and now it’s time for you to retire and enjoy the finer things in life. The North Georgia Mountains are an ideal location to find your retirement dream home and Nathan Fitts & Team are here to help! Let’s take a look at some features you should consider adding to your wish list when you begin house hunting:

1. Location, location, location!

The age-old adage is true, location is everything. The beauty of small town living is that you are close to delicious restaurants, grocery stores, retail shops, and medical services. Not only do you get to enjoy the quaintness of the mountains, but a quick run into town will provide you with city conveniences.

2. Can you hear me now?

When looking for a mountain home, you want to be sure that you will be able to receive cellular reception and high-speed internet. Wi-Fi is a definite necessity for our smart tv’s and smart homes offering conveniences and security features for this day and age. Many North Georgia communities are now part of the North Georgia Network which provides a state-of-the-art fiber-optic network offering high-speed broadband.

3. Let there be light!

Bring the outdoors in with large windows and tons of natural lighting. Not only will this lift your spirits, but you’ll be more active and able to get more tasks accomplished. Not to mention that as we age, it becomes more difficult to see so the lighter the better! Task lighting, dimmable switches, and ambient lighting are also considerations for lighting your new home.

4. No fuss, no stress!

Now that you’ve retired in style, who wants to spend all their time fussing with maintaining your home’s exterior and landscaping? Look for homes with vinyl or brick siding to ensure minimal upkeep. Consider a metal roof. Not only are they low maintenance, but you’ll love the sound of the rain coming down! Wooded lots are ideal options to keep your outdoor workload light. If you do have large grassy areas, consider removing it by paving, graveling or adding a deck to the space.

5. Just say no!

If you were to ask our knees and hips if they want to walk up and down stairs to get to and from the bedroom, they would give you a resounding no! Search for homes with master bedrooms on the main floor to keep those aches to a minimum. While single story living is most desirable, multi-levels work great as long as the master is on the main and your guest rooms are upstairs!

6. Walk on in!

As we mature, traditional tubs become cumbersome to step into and can be dangerous when getting out. Look for walk-in showers with no step or a small step to reduce the risks of slipping. Fortunately, walk-in showers are easier to clean and they look great too!

7. Take it for granite!

Yes, we really meant granite! Granite countertops are the ideal hard surface countertops. Easy to clean and maintain, these durable counters are resistant to heat, scratches, and stains. Not only do they increase the value of your home, but the earthy look and variety of color options will complement both the rustic and modern home styles.

8. Go, go energy!

Select energy efficient appliances not just because of the tax break, but because you will reduce your carbon footprint. Energy efficient appliances use less energy, cuts utility costs, and help to protect our environment.

Whose Market Is It?

Real estate is a cyclical business. For months, or even years, conditions may favor the buyer. Then, over time, the pendulum will swing the other way and circumstances will favor the seller. The market forces of supply and demand help determine whether it is a buyer’s or seller’s market. When the supply of homes is high, the sense of urgency for buyers lessens. Because there are more homes to choose from buyers can be more selective and may wield more power during the negotiations. In turn, sellers may need to lower their asking prices to attract consumer interest. Conversely, in a seller’s market, inventory is lower. Buyers have fewer options and the sense of immediacy is heightened. As a result, the number of bids on any given listing may increase, asking prices might rise, and buying terms may become more stringent. A second factor that influences the market is mortgage interest rates. High rates mean it costs buyers more money to borrow from a bank or lender. Higher rates can lessen consumer demand. On the other hand, when rates are lower and buyers feel they can get more for their money it can propel them into the real estate market. If you are considering buying a home it is critical that you determine whether it is a buyer’s or seller’s market. Equally important is to remember that real estate is local. Different factors could make it a seller’s market in one city and a buyer’s in another. To help you determine which conditions prevail examine how long listings are staying on the market, compare that rate to six months ago, and look at whether homes are selling above or below asking price.

Nathan Fitts & Team have an in-depth knowledge of the market in Blue Ridge and the surrounding communities in the North Georgia mountains. By working with Nathan you can rest assured that you will be getting the information to help you make the best informed choice – whether you are a buyer or seller.

Buyer Beware – 5 Reasons Home Inspections Matter

CAVEAT EMPTOR

Latin for “let the buyer beware,” caveat emptor is a contract doctrine that puts the burden on the buyer to make a reasonable examination of a property prior to purchase to uncover any defects that may affect reasonable enjoyment of property, and further puts the onus on the buyer to take responsibility for its condition once the property has closed. In any real estate transaction, it is a given that a seller knows more than a buyer about the condition of a property. Because of this, the Georgia Association of Realtors requires all sellers to complete a seller’s disclosure that should identify any defects in a property that are known to the seller. The good news is that the overwhelming majority of sellers are completely forthcoming in the disclosures concerning any known defects. The tricky part comes in when the seller may not be aware of any defects or the fact that a situation may even constitute a defect. After all, they may have lived in a property for years with no problems at all blissfully ignorant of the fact that something may be in flagrant violation of current building standards. That is why a prudent buyer should always request a complete home inspection from a reputable home inspector, one who has taken formal training and has received certification from ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) or GAHI (Georgia Association of Home Inspectors, which incorporates all the ASHI standards).

A formal inspection should encompass the various home systems: HVAC, interior plumbing, electrical systems, as well as the roof, foundation, walls, ceilings, doors, floors, basement and other structural components. Think of it as similar to a complete physical check-up when you visit your personal physician. Once the inspection has been completed, the inspector should provide you with a complete report laying out in detail the condition of all the major components of the structure: what condition they are in, if any repairs are necessary and, if so, what they are. Better inspectors will give you a ‘triage’ list of the items, prioritizing those items that require the most urgent attention down to those that can reasonably wait until a later date to be ameliorated. A good inspector will also point out those items that were built or installed that exceed current building standards. Some buyers can be frightened off from a perfectly good home if all they get is the bad news, while the house may be overall in great condition it’s just that no one has taken the time to point that out to them. The cost of a good home inspection can vary depending on the inspector and the size and intricacy of a home’s components. An average is typically $350 – $400; but, again, the price is dependent on a multitude of factors.

Once you receive the inspectors report, it is up to you to decide which items, if any, you want the seller to repair/replace, and which ones you can comfortably live with for the time being. Once you have made that decision, your agent will let the seller know what items you wish to have addressed. At this point, it is up to the sellers to decide what they are willing to fix and that can range from everything to nothing. Usually, what a seller is willing to have repaired is in direct proportion to the sale price agreed on for the house. If the seller has accepted what they consider to be a very low offer, they will more than likely be less willing to make repairs. If, however, they feel that a price that is fair to both buyer and seller has been arrived at, they will typically be more reasonable in accepting the responsibility for repairing items. Throughout this process your Realtor® can be an invaluable asset, not just in supplying you with a list of reputable, reliable inspectors, but also in helping you navigate the process of going back to the seller with your wish list of repairs and getting the most cooperation out of the seller throughout the process.

Let the buyer beware, but let the buyer not be scared.

Blue Ridge Station

Here we grow again! Ground has been broken for Blue Ridge’s newest project: Blue Ridge Station. A mixed-use development, there will be retail space on the ground floor and loft living on the upper three floors. The building itself has one foot in the past and the other in the future. With a nod to Blue Ridge’s past, the building will look something along the lines of an old brick warehouse. Inside, however, you will find the most up-to-date amenities. The ground floor will consist of upscale retail spaces that offer open, light-filled shops with convenient parking. Located alongside the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, it will be easy to stop into one of the shops and eateries that fill the retail spaces.

Upstairs, there are three floors of lofts – 15 in all—each offering two-bedrooms and two-baths. The 10-foot ceilings provide plenty of natural light and an overall burnished glow from the gleaming hardwood floors and natural color palette. Each has a balcony that overlooks the storybook city of Blue Ridge, helping you feel a connectedness to the city and its denizens. Each unit comes with two parking spaces in a well-lit, secure area to the rear of the building and there is no public access to the lofts. There is also a large area for dog-walking — or cat-walking if that’s your thing! The kitchens boast furniture-grade cabinetry, farm house-style sinks and quartz countertops. There are three different floor plans to suit a variety of tastes.

The lofts are perfect for full-time living, vacation rental/retreat, or a get-away from the pressures of city life. You are right in the center of beautiful downtown Blue Ridge so you can easily enjoy the many restaurants, shops, and galleries that are right in your front yard.. You are also oh-so-close to the many natural amenities in and around Blue Ridge, like trout fishing and kayaking on the Toccoa River, hiking and biking on the miles of trails that criss-cross Fannin County, paddle boarding on Lake Blue Ridge. Enjoy the best of all worlds at Blue Ridge Station. For more information and to keep up with the progress of the project, give Nathan a call. He will be glad to assist you in anyway possible to make your Blue Ridge dreams come true!

Cabins for Sale in Blue Ridge GA

Cabins for Sale in Blue Ridge GA

Are you looking to purchase a cabin for sale in Blue Ridge GA sometime in the future? This article covers a few key points associated with property searches in the North Georgia Mountains such as styles of home, types of views to look for, property sizes, and access to your future dream home.

Do you know what style you’re interested in?

Many buyers seeking to purchase cabins for sale in the mountains are unaware of the variety of styles that can be found.

Ranch

Ranch style cabins are noted for their rectangular, single level, and traditional layout. Many of the earlier cabins in the Blue Ridge mountains were constructed in this fashion due to the easier style of building and lower costs. While in recent years we have seen an revival of this type of building the demand is substantially higher than supply causing prices of smaller, ranch style homes to be higher per square foot than most others. All ranch style homes feature master bedroom and laundry on the main, as well as near 100% of living space. Some “sunken ranch” style homes feature a fully finished basement with walk-out access as a lower level living suite.

Chalet

Chalets originated in the Swiss Alps and are often seen in vacation homes and short term rental properties. Typical details include exposed timbers, wrap around decks, glass prow front facing long range views, high ceilings, open floor plans, and plentiful sleeping areas. The features of a chalet while making them the ideal vacation or rental property are often not best suited for long term living as they require a substantial amount of maintenance and cleaning. Many newer style chalet homes while still having the chalet features are built to be smaller more usable homes for full time living. The wrap around open deck style is the perfect place for an entertainment porch or to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with nature.

Traditional

The vast majority of mountain homes are constructed of a more traditional floor plan consisting of 2-4 levels and a variety of floor plans. If you’re looking for a cabin for sale in blue ridge have you considered the focus of your home and the features you would use most? An example is to think about how much you enjoy cooking which would lead you to purchase a cabin with a larger open kitchen and copious amounts of cooking & preparation space. Some might need to consider what types of items they own that would occupy large amounts of space such as a grand piano, or even kayaks and canoes. These factors often make or break decisions on purchasing a traditional style cabin as each is built with different features to suit different lifestyles.

Square footage different in the mountains

The area measurements of a home, typically listed in Square Feet (Sq Ft), are an important consideration when looking to buy a cabin in the North Georgia Mountains especially if you’re considering a permanent move. When buying a cabin in Blue Ridge there are a few notes regarding area measurements, specifically that of “Sq Ft Above Grade” and “Sq Ft Below Grade.” Most sites, such as Zillow and Trulia, will only list the Sq Ft Above Grade making some mansion-esque  cabins appear to be less than 2,000 Sq Ft when in reality they are closer to 6,000. Other sites, such as Realtor.com, will list 100% of the heated area in one number giving a more accurate picture of total size.

When searching for a cabin to purchase in the North Georgia Mountains, instead of relying on the Sq Ft measurements of various websites, use an estimate of room and livable space sizes, quantities, and locations. The reason for this is primarily due to custom built cabin styles and locations being perched on the side of a mountain requiring what would typically be considered the lower portions of a home (1st & 2nd floor) to be set below grade in a similar position of a traditional basement. The lower floors of most mountain cabins while in the position of a basement will often feature a view with deck or walk out access to a hot tub area.

How a “million dollar view” can be less than a million dollars

If you’re looking for a cabin for sale in Blue Ridge GA and can’t figure out what type of view you want for your vacation home or full time residence there are a few key factors to consider.

Firstly, a year round mountain view is not always best. Many consider the year round mountain view to be the most important factor when purchasing a home yet fail to realize that excellent views can be seen even with partial or seasonal mountain views and not carry the 10-30% increase in property cost. Did you know that with most seasonal mountain views the mountains are actually visible year round, simply partially obstructed by trees?

Second, typically water features and year round mountain views cannot be combined. Streams and creeks typically run across flat or rolling land to a lake while stunning views of the Blue Ridge mountains are best seen perched atop a mountain, where there are little to no streams/creeks/rivers. If you’re looking for a combination of views your best option would be to include homes for sale on Lake Blue Ridge or homes for sale on Lake Nottely.

Third, be sure to consider the various environmental factors when searching for a view. For example, a year round mountain view means chillier temperatures and bigger wind gusts in the winter, as well as unobstructed solar exposure during the summer months. River, creek, and stream views while typically not a concern for flooding in the Blue Ridge mountains can sometimes raise insurance rates.

Not all parking and roads are the same like many suburban areas

Now that you’ve selected a style of home & view you’re searching for it is time to look at options for parking your vehicles and the quality of access to prospective properties.

Cabins in Blue Ridge with a garage

The full time living and vacation home or rental/investment property carry very different parking requirements. Full time residents would often prefer a garage for storing their vehicles during off hours and inclement weather primarily for the safety and security. This is not always the case with vacation homes or rental/investment purchases where the stay is of short duration and the occupants are not necessarily the same as the owners. A two car garage in Blue Ridge is not a standard feature as it is in most other communities because of complex building and permitting requirements associated with constructing the additional structure or attempting to adjoin with an existing structure. Another factor typically prohibiting the construction of a garage is lot size, shape, and access location. Some builders have found creative ways to add garaging space by either placing it in a basement garage with wrap around access or constructing it as a separate structure on a flat area near the home but without covered walkway between the two.

Four wheel drive access vs. all paved roads

There is not much more disappointing than to find your dream home and realize as you’re traveling there the only vehicle capable of getting there is a 4WD monster truck. One of the most frequent requests from buyers is to have all paved access because they are concerned about being able to get to the house. The honest truth is areas without all paved access are sometimes just as easily accessed as those with because the road maintenance contractors are familiar with the proper grading style and schedules.

The areas you should buy in

Blue Ridge

Searching for cabins for sale in Blue Ridge GA? Blue Ridge offers a wondrous amount of activities and a vibrant community best suited for vacation rental, up scale full time living, and investment properties. Though many properties are listed as Blue Ridge this does not necessarily mean they are within the city limits which can often be a good thing from many perspectives. Some great areas to consider are cabins for sale on Aska Rd, cabins for sale on Lake Blue Ridge, and cabins for sale in one of the many subdivisions.

Cherry Log

A commonly overlooked area during property searches yet one of the number one areas to purchase a reasonably priced mountain cabin is the Cherry Log area. Cherry Log is comprised of many different communities though the most notable area is Cherry Log Mountain.  Are you looking for a cabin for sale in Cherry Log? Start with searching in the Cherry Lake and Cherry Log Mountain properties. This area features prime examples of mountain top cabins and seclusion without being too removed from the Blue Ridge and Ellijay area.

Ellijay

A growing area primarily consisting of full time residential living makes cabins for sale in Ellijay an excellent location to purchase. The Ellijay community, in contrast to Blue Ridge, is focused more on full time residents and carries commercial shopping, chain restaurants, and easy access to larger cities. Though Ellijay is primarily catered toward full time living that does not mean there is a shortage of cabins for sale featuring the true mountain feel.

Why Vacant Land in Blue Ridge Is the Most Underrated, Finite Investment

When you think of a strong investment, your mind will likely jump to thinking about stocks or business purchases, but you might be surprised to learn that land ownership is one of the most underrated investments you can make. Vacant land is often misunderstood when it comes to financial benefits for the simple reason that a piece of land just is not that exciting. It sits there without doing anything, and to be honest, it’s just a really boring product — but that’s what makes it such an amazing purchase opportunity!

 

You may have never realized it, but owning vacant land is a great way to make money, and because you can do so much with it, it’s an investment that can become very versatile. Owning a piece of land, in a location that can best meet your needs, will benefit you financially for decades to come.

 

So what’s the secret to land investment? It’s knowing how to make your purchase be one of the best decisions for you and your family, earning you money without taking up too much time or effort. Flipping houses or buying properties to rent out could be worthy investments, but why should you put energy into a project when you can just benefit from something that doesn’t need any additional work?

Purchase property in Blue Ridge GA that best meets your needs

There’s no house to flip, nothing to renovate, no plumbing to fix, no codes to keep, and no inspections to deal with. If you love simplicity and efficiency, land purchasing is for you. Not to mention, you won’t have much emotional attachment to your investment, making it easy when it’s time to sell or rent the property for someone else to build on. This anti-sentimental quality also makes it much painless for you as a buyer to find a seller willing to pass along their vacant property to you.

 

When a land owner doesn’t spend time there and has no construction with which to attach themselves, it makes it effortless to let go. Just because someone didn’t know how to make the best use of the land and earn a substantial profit from it, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to benefit greatly from the same investment. Location is everything, and just as long as someone else or another company can come in and build on your land, you’ll be set to see the growth of your investment.

Be in control of your investment in Blue Ridge GA

 

If you’ve been looking in the market to buy a home, chances are you’ve been warned about tight competition or the need for quick decision making in order to beat out any other interested clients. With vacant land however, there is often little to no competition whatsoever. Even for investors who are experts at purchasing and reselling houses, or even residential lots, the idea of buying land doesn’t often cross one’s mind. It doesn’t seem like a great move because you can’t see the concrete product that you’ve purchased. But that’s just it — the land itself if the tangible item you’re buying — and it’s worth is not to be underestimated. Having this inside knowledge gives you a great start over other real estate competitors who don’t realize that they too should have tried to acquire the land.

 

Unlike stocks or buildings, purchasing land in Blue Ridge GA means that you are in total control of what happens to your investment. The way your make your purchase even provides its own kind of independence. In some cases, you’ll be able to buy without having to communicate with third party financial institutions like mortgage companies or banks. Thanks to modern technology, you could buy an attractive lot without actually having to travel there in person, which also cuts back on your personal expenses and time involved. Virtual purchasing and selling? Yes, you read that correctly. You can manage your property investment from your couch.

Investing your money can be stress-free in Blue Ridge GA

As far as long-term investments go, owning land is the best and most sound option available. Not only will land always stay in the same place and never change, owners are also free from having to pay bills, fix repairs, upgrade structures, or investigate the conditions of the property in person. It doesn’t diminish in size or value, and you’re not relying on a certain time frame in which you’ll need to sell or rent your purchase. There’s also a limited quantity available — no one is making more land out of thin air to sell — which increases its value just by existing in the first place.

 

If you’re concerned about property taxes, that’s something to research depending upon where you’re looking to acquire land, but comparatively, taxes on vacant land are very low. Land investment is a simple, concrete opportunity that all but guarantees future income, so as long as the land can be used by other buyers down the road, there’s a sense of security for your purchase.

 

Money is not something we spend without consideration, and when we do decide to make a long-term investment, it should be something that’s easy to navigate and even easier to make a profit from. With economic change and uncertainty happening in domestic and foreign stock markets, putting money into stocks, bonds and companies is less reassuring, especially since we don’t have control over what happens to our money once it’s been invested.

 

All factors considered, the safest and most likely place to see financial growth is through the purchasing and selling of land. Land agents, real estate sellers, and virtual property managers agree, when you’re able to secure a plot of land that could be the slightest bit useful to another person, you’re able to increase its value and earn revenue from the property. Land is permanent, resourceful, useful, and a necessary part of any new structure, business or production. It may seem out-of-the-box, but gain a sense of security by choosing vacant land as your next long-term investment strategy.
