Holiday Mailing Tips

by Paula McDaniel, Chattanooga Realtor.

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the last thing you need to worry about is mailing your gifts. Follow these United States Postal Service (USPS) tips to make sure your packages arrive intact and on time:

Packaging: Choose a strong box and make sure to insulate your gift with bubble wrap, newspaper, Styrofoam peanuts or plain popcorn. Seal your package with shipping tape, and don't use any string or wrapping paper. Packages that weigh over 1 pound should be taken to the post office for shipping. The post office also carries certain envelopes and tubes that are free with mailing services.

Addressing Packages: Make sure both "TO" and "FROM" addresses are printed clearly, and include apartment numbers and direction information for streets. If you don't know the zip code, do not guess. You can locate correct zip codes at http://www.usps.com. Place your addresses on only one side of the package.

Delivery Speed: The general rule when mailing letters and packages is that if you wait too long, you'll have to pay more. However, for those last-minute mailers, the USPS offers 1-2 day delivery, 365 days a year.

For more information, visit the USPS's web site at http://www.usps.com

Chattanooga home prices rise as sales rebound

by Dave Flessner The Chattanooga Times Free Press

Buoyed by a 15 percent jump in third quarter home sales this year, the median price of existing homes sold this summer rose more in Chattanooga than any Mid-South market, according to a report today from the National Association of Realtors.

The typical existing single-family home in metropolitan Chattanooga sold in the third quarter for $128,700, or $13,200 more than in the same period a year ago.

The gain in Chattanooga home prices came despite a nationwide decline of 4.7 percent in the past year.

The median price of homes sold in the third quarter of this year was still 24 percent below the U.S. average of $169,500 for existing single-family homes, NAR figures show.

In a separate report released today, the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors said area Realtors sold 1,623 residential units during July, August and September this year, up 15 percent from the same quarter in 2010.

North Pole Train Ride - Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum

by Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum

Since 1999, the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum has been carrying all the good boys and girls of Chattanooga and surrounding areas to the North Pole for a visit with Santa Claus. This year, TVRM is proud to announce that Jolly Old St. Nicholas has once again asked that we extend our services and take everybody back to the North Pole again!

Santa’s elves have been busy preparing the tracks and we hear that they’ll be routed through locations such as Santa’s Workshop! Storytellers are buying fresh copies of The Polar Express to read to everybody and elves are busy getting Yoo-Hoo chocolate drinks and cookies ready so that all the children will have something to eat and drink on the trip!

Santa has even arranged for our station to keep everyone warm and dry while waiting for the North Pole Limited to arrive, complete with a dining area for those with an appetite. (See our Depot Deli menu HERE)

Note: All activities take place on the train during your 75 minute trip. Passengers will not detrain at the North Pole, but Santa boards and greets the children as the train travels back to Grand Junction Station.
