By Alex Griffin | Investment Associate | Beman Group
Blanchard and Calhoun Commercial

A new decade has begun, being led by what is certain to be an interesting year: 2020. The Roaring Twenties have begun again and this year will bring about uncertainty in politics (election year), the economy (longest expansion in US history and ongoing trade wars), and geopolitical concerns (Iran, Russia, China, etc.). With real estate, I expect there to be a lot of surprises as well, and I hope to highlight a lot of the news in real estate throughout the year. That being said, here are 3 news stories to kick start your 2020!

Downtown Augusta GA Restaurants

Downtown Augusta offers a variety of eclectic dining options. While we genuinely think every eatery downtown is great, here are ten dining spots that the locals have dubbed as a must visit.

New Moon Café:  You can’t go wrong with any of the trendy coffee shops downtown, but The New Moon Café is pretty cool!  This upbeat artistic café offers freshly roasted coffee beans, homemade pastries, smoothies, and an awesome breakfast menu. Not a breakfast person? Try a combo special on their lunch menu! Bonus: New Moon Café is pet-friendly; enjoy a specialty coffee on the patio with your favorite furry friend.

Prepare your Home for Winter

After an extremely long and hot Summer, most of us are more than happy to welcome Fall with open arms.  While Autumn is a cozy season with its peaceful scenery of mustard and orange leaves; the cheers of college football fans; and pumpkin spice everything- it’s also a time to prepare for the inevitable; Winter.  And even though it’s unlikely that a snow blizzard will occur here in the south, there are still some preparation tasks you will want to tackle before temperatures take a dip.

Inspect Your Heating Service:  

Don’t wait for it to get cold to discover your heating system is not working.   Once the cold weather hits, HVAC service providers will start to book up and it could take days before someone can come out to service your heater. Now

With the cyber wave beginning to grow, Augusta's apartment market is primed for growth, making our market attractive for investment. Buoyed by two stable industries, Military and Healthcare, Augusta has seen steady, albeit low rent growth for the past decade or so, but with conservative estimates showing Fort Gordon bringing an additional 14,000 employees and dependents to Augusta by 2023, rent growth should exceed the national average for the next few years. Also aiding rent growth is the lack of new development over the past decade, specifically in the luxury market.

There are a few reasons for limited development. First, land prices in the area have been low, keeping new home prices down, thereby making home ownership attractive relative to

Augusta Georgia

Each January, the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia traverses the state presenting their economic outlook for the upcoming year. The forecast for 2019 included national GDP growth of 2.5%, less than 2018 growth of 3% and below the 2.9% average growth of the last 50 years. High asset prices, tight labor markets, and high federal budget deficits contributed to the projected slowdown. The biggest risks for 2019 are: 1) overvalued equity prices, 2) political upheaval, and 3) restrictive monetary policy.

Even in the face of a slowing national economy, the outlook for Georgia looks strong, as Georgia's economy is projected to grow faster than the national economy for the sixth straight year (3% versus 2.5%). Georgia's economy is

Blanchard and Calhoun Rainmaker

As corporate relocation opportunities continue to become more expensive and scarce in comparison to a few years ago, our relocation team has increased its focus on home-grown opportunities.  Augusta, Ga. is home to Fort Gordon, a United States Army base, which houses critical missions including cyber command and the signal corp.  With more than 30,000 employees crossing into and out of Fort Gordon’s gates daily, our relocation team zeroed in on the giant opportunity right in front of us. 

Military on the Move® has been Blanchard and Calhoun’s go-to marketing program to serve military families in our area since we rolled it out in 2015.  Its popularity among our agents has grown annually since day one, and we’ve noticed it becoming an increasingly
