These days, everyone is looking to save money. According to taxfoundation.org, the average worker faces a 31.3% tax burden on earnings.  

 

That means that saving one dollar is like earning about $1.45 for the average US Worker.

JLA Services is confident that our 12 years of diverse experience in brokerage, land, new home construction and sales, rental, renovation, development, permitting, and cell tower siting can maximize the potential that you are seeking.  If you're wanting to answer the challenging questions, we can provide insight that comes from over a decade of experience.  

There are hundreds of questions in even the simplest of real estate transactions.  

Should I buy?

Should I sell?

What is my property worth if I sell/rent?

Am I paying a fair price?

Can I market this house/land/building myself, and if so, how?

How can I protect myself from potential pitfalls as a landlord?

What is the best way to position my house/land in the market?

I found the right property, and I don't want to use an agent, but I'm not comfortable going it alone.  How can I have the best of both worlds?

What can I expect to spend to build my home?

Can I do what I want to do on this property/in this house?

I'm thinking about a career in real estate.  Is this the right way to go?

Who can help me with pictures/descriptions/marketing materials?

Who should I call to help me with (insert problem here)?

HOW CAN I SAVE MONEY?

These days, everyone is looking to save money. According to taxfoundation.org, the average worker faces a 31.3% tax burden on earnings.  

That means that saving just one dollar is like earning about $1.45 for the average US Worker. 

The key to being wealthy over the long term has more to do with saving than with income. While we certainly must generate enough income to pay for the basic necessities of life, accumulation of wealth is more about playing a good defense and living below our means than it is about being a high income individual.

JLA Services offers real estate and construction consulting services by the hour, because we believe that the full service, traditional broker is not the right answer for everyone.

Much like a fee-only financial advisor who has no interest in pushing products that pay them more in commissions, we are only interested in saving you money, in helping you make the best determination for your situation. Factual analysis, as well as subjective intangibles, come together to help you make an informed decision.

Take, for example, the decision to build a house.  You've found the perfect lot for $100,000, and the price seems reasonable for your area, but not knowing the answer for a few key questions can really add up.  For example:

-Is the lot approved for septic, or will I be required to connect to sewer? If sewer is required, what is the cost to connect? How far will I need to run it? If not, is there enough appropriate soil to put in a septic system?  What about specimen tree ordinances?  When do I need to get an arborist involved?  How much will it cost me to mitigate the 36" caliper specimen oak in the back yard?  Am I likely to hit rock?  Have the water meter fees been paid? Is there an impact fee?  What about zoning? Is the lot big enough, and is there enough road frontage?  Are there title problems, and what are they?

These questions, and more, can turn a $100,000 lot into a $200,000 nightmare if you aren't prepared.

 

Knowledge, timing, discipline, and consistency are the keys to saving money.

We track and charge all consulting services to the nearest 15 minute increment.  Travel to a property is charged at $1 per mile rather than at an hourly rate.   The starting point is the intersection of Holly Springs Road and Davis Rd. in Marietta, GA 30062.
