Every so often, a story pops up in the news about someone “discovering” something in their attic that ends up being very valuable. Sometimes it is an item that was tucked away in an old trunk or suitcase that was part of a family estate. Other times it could be things that were left behind by the previous owner. In some cases, these discoveries were also hidden and forgotten. Any time there is a story like this, you probably take a trip up to your attic to see what’s up there. You might discover your own family treasures. They might not bring in a lot of money but they certainly can have sentimental value. Maybe it is time to bring those treasures down from the attic and put on display. As for everything else, Junk King Atlanta can help with that.

Atlanta has a rich history. Some of that history involves ghosts. At this time of year, the many ghost tours offer up throughout the city kick into overdrive. Do you live close to a “haunted house?” Maybe there are some things that go “bump in the night” around your home?

The Junk King teams aren’t afraid of going down into basements or up into attics. If that is where you’ve got stuff to be removed, then that is where they’re going to go. All you need to do is show them all the things you want hauled away. One look is all it will take for the Junk King squad to know how everything will fit onto the truck. That is very important because it is also how your final fee will be determined. The more they can pack into a tight space, the less you’ll be paying.

You don’t have to be haunted by junk in your home for one day longer as long as Junk King Atlanta is just a phone call away.

Going back-to-school is a very exciting and challenging time for kids and parents alike. The parents have to get everyone back on the school schedule program. Regardless of the grade, this is an exciting time for kids and parents as new challenges are met. One way to stay engaged is to ask questions about each day. Instead the basic, “How was school?” consider asking your kids variations on these questions:

Did you feel disrespected by anyone today?
What happened that made you proud of yourself?
What was the most challenging part of today?
What did you learn about overcoming that challenge?
Is there something you’re worried about?
What are you looking forward to tomorrow?

Nothing is more exciting and anxiety inducing than buying your first home. Home ownership is one of those things that every single person dreams of. And those dream homes can take many forms from a rural location to a condo in the city. If this is your first time buying a home, then you’ll want to put these tips into action:
Set a Budget and Stick To It
There are plenty of online real estate sites that can help you with your home shopping. Before you dive in, you need to be realistic about your price range and this can only happen if you set a budget and stick with it. The obvious goal would be to find a loan that would have you paying equal to what you’re paying to rent right now. But you also have to factor in costs for homeowner’s insurance and property taxes. That is just what you’ll be spending on a regular basis. There are also all kinds of deposits and closing costs that need to be factored into this budget as well. Once you’ve locked down the numbers, then you can know what kind of home you can afford.
Make a “Must Have” List
Will there be compromises when buying a home? Of course but there are also some features that shouldn’t be up for negotiation. Those can include the number of bathrooms, bedrooms and yard space. Remember, anything cosmetic can be fixed but you don’t want to move into a home and continue sharing a bathroom if that is on your “must have” list.
That list should also include the location. Do you want to be closer to work or to schools?
Use an Experienced Realtor
As mentioned, there are plenty of listing sites online that can help with your search but those sites probably don’t have as much updated information as an experienced realtor would have. It is crucial that you work with a realtor who knows the territory. They’ll know what homes are coming onto the market before anyone else. They’ll also know about realistic pricing. Most importantly, they’ll be in the best position to negotiate a favorable deal.
Once you’ve locked down your home and are waiting for closing to wrap up, you’ll want to start to get ready for the big move and that should begin with a session with Junk King Atlanta. You’ve probably accumulated a lot of unwanted junk over the years and none of that should be dragged to your new home. Instead, turn it all over to Junk King. One junk removal session with Junk King Atlanta will help make sure you’re not bring old junk to a new home.
Smart realtors know they can’t just sell a home on it’s features but also the features of the surrounding neighborhood. Yes, some folks might want to “get away from it all” and live out in the country where your nearest neighbor is several miles away. But most folks prefer to be around amenities like restaurants, shops, schools and churches. It also helps to sell a home in a neighborhood where reliable service professionals are available. That is certainly true for most of Atlanta. When it comes to finding quality junk haulers, the only call you need to make is to Junk King Atlanta.

That sets them apart from other types of day laborers who might not be as responsible with your property.
As for the truck, it’s big and red. You’ll know it belongs to Junk King for sure! That truck plays an important part in how you’ll be charged for the session. It doesn’t come with a built-in scale. Instead, it is the amount of space that your stuff uses up that will determine what you’ll be paying. That fee can be based off of one-third, one-half or the full truck. You’ll know what that fee is before the work begins. If for some reason this isn’t a price you’re happy with, then the Junk King team will more onto their next assignment. No problem.

Do you have a good relationship with your neighbors? We all should. One of the ways to foster those good relationships is to throw a good old-fashioned block party. This is where literally everyone on your block participates in a day of fun, food and friendship. Here’s how to throw your block party:
Every block party needs someone to take charge but that does mean someone does all the work. You’ll have to form a planning committee to work out the basics. The committee would have just a few neighbors who will be going out throughout the block to get everyone else on board. The first order of business is to pick a day that works best for the majority. You might want to consider the upcoming Labor Day Weekend as the pick for your block party as it’s a good chance everyone will be around and off from work.
A sign up sheet can be taken around to the homeowners and get them to commit to the party. It will also help to know how many kids will attend and what are their ages. This signup sheet will also be the start of the menu of the day as folks can volunteer for their potluck dishes. Yes, potluck is the best approach for feeding everyone at a block party.
If you’re going to shut down the block for the party, then you might need a permit from the city. You’ll be surprised at how easy these are to obtain. If everyone on the block is cooperating, then you can literally set up your tables and chairs in the middle of the street for the duration of the party. But if there are some hold outs, then you need to make accommodations for them to access to their property. In other words, don’t block their driveway.
If kids are coming to your block party, then you’ll want to set up some activities for them to have fun with. You could have bike decorating contests, scavenger hunts and other races. It will also help to arrange for music to be part of your block party. There will probably be someone who can bring out some speakers and get a playlist going.
Everyone who pitches in for the block party will be pitching in for the cleanup. Before the party kicks off, you might want to get your yards clean as well. That’s where Junk King Atlanta can be of assistance. One session with these junk hauling pros will have all the rubbish from the front and back yard gone for good. Let Junk King Atlanta help get your home ready for a block party by getting rid of yard rubbish fast.
