Many critics of the $8,000 homebuyer tax credit say that it doesn’t really help motivate individuals to buy a home because there still exists job insecurity in the workforce. This is a pretty valid claim as many would-be homebuyers I’ve talked to have said that due to layoffs and poor company performance they are afraid to purchase a home in fear that they could be jobless within the next year. Brock Built understands these concerns which is why they are introducing “Stormy Weather” coverage.
Stormy Weather coverage helps protect against two primary reasons for default and foreclosure. These include involuntary job loss and extended financial hardship requiring negotiation with your mortgage servicer. The major components include: mortgage payment relief, homebuyer education, advocacy and counseling and loss mitigation.
Brock Built focus on creating warm and welcoming neighborhoods in the city and surrounding area of Atlanta. Steve Brock, founder and CEO of Brock Built, has been building for over 25 years. Visit a Brock Built community and you will likely find neighbors chatting at the mailbox, children riding bikes on sidewalks, at pool parties, home owners walking dogs and socializing at the community club house or community outdoor fireplaces/fire pits.
The Brock Built homes are intriguing themselves, but since the community is placed in unique locations the areas offer much more. The Smyrna Collection is located just next to the Smyrna Market Village which offers shopping, dining and entertainment. Smyrna is perfect for all ages and offers something for everyone. Few inventory homes remain priced from $300,000 and are priced up to over $100,000 off which make them unbeatable prices! Looking for something smaller in the Smyrna area at an affordable price? Watch for details on new Smyrna homes that will be available. Be sure to stop by and visit the Smyrna Collection homes and visit the fabulous Smyrna Market Village for a bite to eat as well as entertainment.

The Tributary will be getting a little extra publicity this year. Ashton Kutcher, Katherine Heigl and Tom Selleck star in Five Killers, a feature film set and filmed in part at Tributary.
Described as a light-hearted action comedy, Five Killers features Ashton Kutcher as a CIA assassin who meets and falls in love with Katherine Heigl in France (where the photo above was taken). Afterwards, he gives up his assassin “business” to become a family man.
The couple moves to an idyllic, suburban Georgia neighborhood (Tributary) to be near her parents. After several years of wedded bliss, Ashton Kutcher’s character realizes there are several contracts out on him, and chaos ensues. Action sequences and a block party will be filmed at Tributary in May and June.
So if you’re looking for your own piece of Hollywood right here in Georgia, you may want to consider doing a little house hunting in Tributary. And if you hear gun shots while looking for homes, don’t worry, they’re just blanks.
Tributary is a large neighborhood in Douglasville. With Sweetwater Creek State Park next door, the ideal location for nature based activities is minutes away. And at 20 minutes to Midtown (down speedy Interstate 20), all that Atlanta has to offer is in your backyard. Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead, Vinings and Georgia Tech offer more clubbing, dining and shopping than any human should tackle in a weekend.
Tributary embraces all the best qualities of America’s classic neighborhoods and places them 20 minutes from downtown, Vinings/Galleria and the airport, and right next to a 2,500-acre nature preserve.
Here you can walk from your home to a park in seven minutes or less, even if you pause a couple of times to greet your neighbors. There are parks by the dozens – playgrounds, social parks, a skate park, off-leash dog parks and even a bocce park. And at the heart of it all, there’s Founders Park – where you are likely to find residents laying on blankets, playing flag football, checking e-mail (it’s a WiFi hotspot), and gathering for concerts, movies, and other community functions.
There are also neighborhood activity centers with swimming pools, a fitness center, a basketball court, tennis center, an athletic field complex, and even our own private mountain biking trail.
Woodbridge Crossing is located on the East West Connector and Cooper Lake Road in Smyrna. The Providence Group recently began development of the neighborhood. The neighborhood will be built out in two phases, with the first being 135 single family homes and phase two consisting of 29 homes. The two phases will be joined by a covered wooden bridge, the neighborhood namesake.
Woodbridge Crossing will feature both traditional front entry garages as well as rear entry garages via alley access. The community will also feature a swiming pool and clubhouse. Prices will be ranging from the mid-$400’s to the mid-$500’s. Expect to see a model home open in the early spring of 2007.
Adjacent to Avignon at Vinings and the Aberdeen and within walking distance to the Vinings Village, Vinings Main will be a mixed-use development featuring condominiums ranging from the $200s to the $600s and townhomes priced from the $600s to $1.2 million with some retail and office space.
Vinings Main, Avignon and Aberdeen projects are underway, so stay tuned for more information as the developments progress.
