Buying a Home in Atlanta

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 Atlanta mortgage broker to see which program will best fit your needs and comfort level.

Selling Your Atlanta Home

Congratulations! You have already realized the dream of home ownership! Here are 5 things to do to help sell your Atlanta 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 Atlanta 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 Atlanta home doesn't have to be a complicated experience. We can help.
