First Community Mortgage Group
When it comes to purchasing your home, regardless if it’s your first or your 5th, it’s important to have clear and sound guidance along the way.

Urban vs. Rural
You found it! You and Nathan Fitts & Team have searched for weeks to find that perfect North Georgia Mountain home and, alas the stars aligned, the angels sang, and you are ready to put down an offer. But wait, before you are dazzled by a perfectly manicured yard and the most perfect shade of pale orchid walls, you should consider the differences between urban and rural living before moving to the mountains and sign on that dotted line.
Well Water or City Water?
Many of the homes nestled within the beautiful ranges of North Georgia are often not tied into the municipal water, but instead on a deep well system. While city water is consistent and held to health safety standards, the water that ultimately comes out of your faucet has been treated and purified with chlorine and fluoride. While it is delightful to have fresh mountain water from your own property, you alone are responsible for any maintenance, repairs, and quality of your H20.

Apple Season is Upon Us!
It’s not at all clear why Johnny Appleseed, proud purveyor of produce, might have stopped sowing seeds somewhere just beyond Ellijay, on the southern side of the Blue Ridge region. Who knows? Maybe it was some menacing dogs at the county line, or maybe he didn’t get a conditional use permit, but it doesn’t really seem to have anything to do with jurisdictional boundaries.
It’s not like grapes, where certain types, vinifera, for example, grow best at particular elevations or proper ph. But somehow good ol’ Johnny either stopped for no reason or ran out of seed after a productive sojourn to the east of Ellijay, about 20 miles south of Blue Ridge. The good news is, there’s a high concentration of apple trees close by, and if you overshoot that’s not a bad thing. Maybe you land in Dahlonega, where the good grapes grow. But that’s another story, for another time.
An apple hunt foray is an easy day; ...
