Buying a Home in Georgia

Welcome to the exciting world of home ownership! Here are 4 things you will definitely want to do before starting your home buying journey:

  1. Be sure that your very first move is to request your credit report from all three credit bureaus to see if there may be any unforeseen issues.
  2. Start getting all revolving lines of credit below the 30% mark to ensure you get the most out of your credit report.
  3. Be sure that you stay current on all your payments.
  4. Reach out to a local Georgia mortgage broker to see which program will best fit your needs and comfort level.

Keep in mind, you likely will not have to have a 20% down payment to become a homeowner in Georgia. So don't postpone your dream! We have options with as little as 0% down.

Selling Your Georgia Home

Congratulations! You have already realized the dream of home ownership! Here are 5 things to do to help sell your Georgia home:

  1. Connect with a local Realtor® to discuss the market, the condition of your home and what you can do to increase the marketability and get you the biggest return.
  2. Request a market Analysis. DO NOT rely solely on online algorithms to determine your home's value! Not only are these estimates frequently incorrect, but by trusting them you could be leaving valuable equity on the table.
  3. Determine your goals and timeline. Simply put, where do you want to go and how quickly do you want to get there?
  4. Connect with a local Georgia lender to determine which mortgage will fit your goals best.
  5. Have a discussion with your accountant or financial advisor. This is somethng that is often not considered (or even suggested for that matter) but can help you determine if you will face any tax consequences for selling. And they may also help you make the best use of your equity.

Selling your Georgia home doesn't have to be a complicated experience. We can help.

Investing in Real Estate in Georgia

I am a firm believer that real estate is an incredible vehicle to generate, not only personal wealth, but generational wealth. Here are 3 simple things you can do to begin investing in Georgia real estate.

  1. Speak with your financial advisor or accountant to determine the overall advantage of a positive cash flowing property.
  2. Call an investor-minded Realtor that understands ROI, multi-family, commercial and is in tune with the wholesale market.
  3. At this point you need to determine what vehicle best suits you to acquire a property. Your options may include cash, conventional lending, self-directed IRA, hard money, 1031 exchange or HELOC. Also, how to title the property.

Investing in Georgia real estate is possible. See how we can help.
