New Street Signs at Polo

The outdated 4×4 wooden post street signs are currently being replaced with a much better look.  The old signs, if you look at them closely, have a few staple holes in them where flyers have been placed over the years.  With the new metal signs, that won’t be possible.  In addition to looking great and helping the value of the homes in the community, these signs are also a little higher and more visible from a distance.

New Tennis Director

Dan Moscar, the General Manager of Polo Golf & Country Club, has named Kevin Moore as the new tennis director.  Kevin has 24 years of teaching experience, including at Country Club of Roswell.  He has been named GPTA Head Tennis Professional of the Year.  His associations are USPTA Certified Level 1, GPTA and USTA.

If you love tennis, whether you are a novice or a semi-pro, Polo is a great place to experience ALTA tennis at its best.  We have a number of hard courts, tennis pro shop and clay courts for your use.

Kevin may be reached at kdm410s@prodigy.net or 404-328-6100.

Distressed Sales in Polo

While looking over the current active listings, I noticed the following:

35 Active Listings

7 of them are short sales

3 of them are foreclosures

The short sales and foreclosures are categorized together as “distressed” properties.  If you look at the price range, it is extremely wide, especially for one community, ranging from the low $200,000’s to almost $1 Million.  Nearly a third of homes for sale being distressed properties is fairly normal for the higher-end subdivisions in the area.  When these numbers get back to traditional levels, we will see prices begin to level out and then possibly even rise seasonally according to demand.  Until then, we’ll keep bouncing along the bottom with a slight trend downward.

Dinner and Bridge at Polo

The first Friday evening of every month is for dinner and a good game of Bridge. Contact the club for details.
