Greetings from Georgia’s Lake Country! With our great climate, convenient location and “worldclass” amenities, our area has become one of the hottest places to relocate to in the country. In my 20 years of real estate in the lake country, I have never seen more demand and escalating values in this market!

Today’s buyers are using technology heavily to purchase real estate. Typically they are doing a lot research and selection through the internet, but still have a need for guidance from a competent realtor. Many times, this includes virtual guidance as well as the traditional research and showings we are all familiar with. Handling a real estate transaction virtually can be even more stressful and more detailed than ever. From the initial questions, through the closing process, technology does not replace the need for a great realtor and in fact, may be even make having a realtor more important.

To accommodate the growing number of buyers on the market, the dynamic duo of Kim and Lin Logan and their team of 13 agents maintain two, 5-star, boutique offices for the convenience of their clients - one in Greensboro and one in Eatonton. While the Logan team of experts represents the best and brightest in the industry, they are also known for being among the most generous. The team donate portions of their paychecks to the Logan’s Brittney Cares nonprofit organization, with the brokerage matching donations. This results in Kim and Lin Logan Real Estate donating thousands each

month to helping local residents pay for medical expenses and financial strain often as a result of tragedy or medical hardship.

“In all my life, I have never been more proud of anything than I am of Brittney Cares,” says Kim. “It has helped so many people locally. There is an old saying we believe in, “when you give, you receive,” and we have received by giving.”

Lake Oconee and Lake Sinclair have seen many changes over the years and no doubt will see many more in the future. I have been through them all and can assure you our team has evolved with the community and technology to make sure we remain the most skilled team in this market. We are ready to show you our Southern Hospitality and put our expertise to work for you by land, lake or air!

See page 20 for more information on the Brittney Cares charity!

We have over 1000 5-star reviews. Why would you go with anyone else?

Don’t make a $100,000 mistake. Use Kim Logan to sell your home. Kim’s expert knowledge of the market is top notch. We interviewed other firms before we hired Kim. Kim’s estimation of what the offering price should be was $100,000 more than that which was recommended by the other firms. Once listed, we accepted an offer within 24 hours at the price Kim recommended. Huge win for us. I also can’t say enough about Kim’s personal and professional approach to selling the house. She was in constant communication throughout the entire process. It was obvious that she wanted the best for us. Kim and Lin Logan are the team to choose. — Mark Mallard

From our initial consultation to the closing, Kim and Lin were very professional and kept us informed of all aspects of the process. They are experts in the local market and got us a fair price for our home. We would use them again. — markchupp,

Maddie was fantastic to work with starting from day one. She understood our needs and what we were looking for in a house on the lake. And, although there has been limited inventory she stayed patient and continued to work until we found our home. This is our 5th home purchase in 3 different states and by far this was the best experience. — ruben flores8,

We chose Traci Nelson through careful research because she is a full-time realtor and is one of the top producers in this area.Her knowledge of the different communities, available amenities, and property values is unmatched. Her reviews working in the capacity of a buyer’s agent are all positive, supportive, and one might even say stellar. Our experience would support those existing reviews.

Christy Barbee of the Kim and Lin Logan Team was amazing to work with. We initially requested a realtor through Zillow and within minutes, we got a call from Christy and she showed us the house we requested and then had other one she thought we would be interested in. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the area her responsiveness, we asked her to be our realtor to help us find our perfect lake house. — Bruce Worre

After a year of sending us listings that helped us figure out what we wanted and could afford, Jennifer acted immediately when we finally found what we were looking for. She secured a contract and then walked us through all the paperwork and was encouraging and available whenever we had a question. She was awesome.

Laura Buttimer helped us find just the right place. We knew nothing about Lake Oconee, Laura was patient, listened to what or goals were in a lake home, what our price range was, and general location. Laura never pressured us or showed us property that was out of our budget range or didn’t have the characteristics we were looking for. Thank you Laura. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a place on Lake Oconee.

Sherry Kranick of Kim and Lin Logan Real Estate kept me informed throughout the process and always had my best interest in mind when dealing with seller and vendors. She provided recommendations for termite inspection and arranged for a home inspector at a reasonable cost. Sherry was always available to answer questions. I would highly recommend as a Realtor to help you meet your real estate needs. — rm11301949

Lisa Phillips w/ Kim & Lin Logan Real Estate was a great agent. She was super responsive, very knowledgeable and her recommendations were ALWAYS on point. We really enjoyed our experience with her and would highly recommend her and the firm to anyone wanting a smooth real estate transaction from start to finish! A++

Kailyn was absolutely five stars to work with throughout our Lake Oconee search and home buying process. She was super responsive, quickly understood what we were looking for, and so knowledgeable about the area! Truly a great partner and guide throughout the journey.

LAKE SINCLAIR Year-end market update

Happy Holidays! 2022 was also a busy year at Lake Sinclair. Demand continued to be good throughout the year with buyers still showing a lot of interest in our market. Inflation, rising prices and a shortage of inventory did slow sales compared to 2021. So, as you might expect, the Lake Sinclair market trends were very similar to the Lake Oconee market trends. The following market update is derived from the Lake Sinclair Multiple Listing Service and includes Residential Properties, Land/Lots & Commercial properties in Baldwin, Putnam and Hancock Counties.

At this point in 2022, with just a few weeks to go, there have been 890 property sales for a total sales volume of $210,543,723. This is a decrease of 15-20% from this time in 2021. For transactions, (1,071 this time last year), and sales volume ($41 million more in 2021). Median days on market remained about the same for 2022 (30 days) compared to 2021 (27 days)

Lakefront property sales in particular remained strong in 2022. The average selling price in 2022 was $509,057, compared to $443,866 in 2021 (an increase of 13%). Median days on market for 2022 was 23 days, compared to 17 days for 2021.

It’s noteworthy to mention that Lake Sinclair continued to bring an increased demand for high end homes in 2022. Last

year, MORE THAN ANY OTHER YEAR, Lake Sinclair saw 16 homes sell for a price above 1 million dollars. On average these higher priced homes sold for $1.4 million with a highest listing price of $2.2 million. WOW! This is a definite increase from 2021 where there were 11 homes sold above $1 million dollars for an average selling price of $1.2 million, and a highest listing price of $1.4 million. Both years, these homes were not on the market long either - 32 days in 2021 and 57 days in 2022.

In summary, The Lake Sinclair 2022 real estate market had a decrease in units sold and volume sold with an increase in the average price of a home. Lakefront sales especially remained strong and the Lake Sinclair area experienced HISTORIC highend sales!

If you would like more information on the market or to pick our brain on where things are going in 2023, CALL the Kim and Lin Logan Team. We love to talk real estate! Selling the Lifestyle at Lake Sinclair & Lake Oconee is WHAT WE DO BEST!

LAKE OCONEE Year-end market update

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! We hope this 2022 market update finds you and your family in good health and spirit! As always at this time of year, we want to stop and give thanks for living in the greatest country on earth and for the sacrifices of our military personnel who make that possible. God bless them and their families this holiday season

A special shout out to our wonderful clients who we now consider friends. Thanks to your business, we were able to donate a portion of our commissions to our company charity

(BRITTNEY CARES) throughout 2022. Our charity focuses on helping local people and charities with much needed cash in their time of need. In addition to helping several local individuals who experienced heart breaking tragedy, Brittney Cares donated to the Pete Nance Boys and Girls Club, Greene County Humane Society, St. Marys Hospital, Sheppards Spinal Hospital, Wake for Warriors, Atlas scholarship fund, and we were able to provide some cheer and gifts to the 648th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade of the Georgia Army National Guard that were stationed


in the middle east. Hearing the stories of these folks and organizations warmed our hearts and was truly a highlight of our year!

The lake area continued to grow and expand in 2022. Several new business opened and several more announced they are coming soon. The golf course communities continued to thrive and expand. Construction and building continued at a high level. The year was filled with lots of exciting events including a national championship for the nearby Georgia Bulldog football team. With all this positive energy, we were not immune from problems other parts of the country saw including rising prices/ costs, a shortage of workers and an increase in traffic volume. All in all, 2022 was an exciting and busy year for what continues to be one of the fastest growing and best places in the country to live!

The Lake area real estate market, like the overall US economy, had mixed results in 2022. As we discussed in previous newsletters, COVID accelerated several demographic and market trends that were already in place: a shift to working at home as opposed to going to an office, people wanting to escape the city and all the associated problems, a shift to warmer climates and people choosing where the want to live based on lifestyle. On the positive side, all of these trends were still in place in 2022 and continued to lead buyers to our market throughout the year. On the negative side, the overall economy

struggled in 2022 with rising inflation, rising interest rates and a stagnant stock market. In our real estate market, home sales were down 15-20%, there continued to be a shortage of existing homes available and lot sales were down 30%. However, home prices continued to increase in 2022 with the average home price going up 16% to $725,000. The net result (declining sales and an increase in price) was an overall 7% drop in the total volume of real estate sales in 2022 ($936,686,227 as of 12/13/2022).

Of course, the big question is what is coming in 2023! There is nothing to indicate that the positive trends that have caused our market to go up will diminish in the short term. As a result, we think our market will continue to be attractive to buyers and keep demand up. What will happen with inflation, interest rates and the overall economy is anybody’s guess.

Bottom line for SELLERS = It is critical that you utilize an agent who KNOWS the market and KNOWS HOW TO GET YOUR HOME SOLD for top dollar! This includes accurate and realistic pricing, exceptional marketing and expert negotiating. Bottom line for BUYERS = It is critical you utilize an agent that will be pro-active in finding you property and an expert at getting you the best possible price for it. WE ARE THE BEST IN THE LAKE OCONEE MARKET with almost two decades as the top selling realtors and an unprecedented number of exceptional reviews. Don’t take my work for it, go on-line and see for yourself!

Everything went very quickly after the diagnosis. I was told I would have four rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and radiation. All of this was very overwhelming, but at the same time, I was grateful that I’d had my annual mammogram and that the cancer was found early. I will survive cancer and would like to say how grateful I am for all the love and support from my family, friends, church and community. All the love and support have really made this difficult time in my life so much easier.

When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Psalms, 94:19
