atlanta real estate buyer: Just Keep The Deal Afloat - 03/27/14 11:45 PM

Just keep the deal afloat!  That was what went through my mind during the last couple of weeks leading up to this closing.  Don't rock the boat, keep it balanced when others start to make it tip and patch any holes that sprang up along the way!
What do you do when you are the listing agent and the buyer's lender and the buyer's agent aren't getting along?  When the buyer is starting to get frustrated with her agent, the numbers are extremely tight and you are up against a very hard closing deadline?  You do whatever it takes. Don't … (4 comments)

Real Estate Investing takes a lot of learning before you can finally hit the right timing.  It takes a lot of effort to reap the rewards that you are targeting.  Buying, selling and renting out properties and profiting from it is achievable.  
When a buyer signed a contract to buy your home, do you think it’s time to go to cloud 9 and celebrate?  No. So many things can still happen.  You will encounter challenges like financing problems in the process, jittery buyers, and imbalance of power between a buyer and a seller and so on and so forth. … (0 comments)

atlanta real estate buyer: Shhh... You Know Who’s The Seller? - 05/22/13 01:48 AM

If you are a serious qualified buyer and you can’t find a seller or what you’re looking for posted on the internet, or in the local real estate agents window then you need to ask around about any “pocket listing” in your preferred neighborhood.
“Pocket Listings” are not included on the multiple listing services, where realtors can tap into other agent’s buyers and these properties are not openly advertised.  Instead it is marketed directly by the agent or broker – “it is in that person’s pocket”.  The seller keeps control about who knows the home is for sale, who may … (2 comments)

atlanta real estate buyer: Are you sure you want to sell the house? - 03/29/13 01:05 AM
Are you sure you want to sell the house?  That is what I thought recently on a counter I received for 40000 over list price recently.  That’s 40 thousand, not four thousand so there is no typo.  The story goes that we made an offer not far below what sales in the area were going for that needed a very large amount of work (approx. 120000).  This property was listed at 110000 and has been sitting vacant for two years.  So…we walked the property and while it needed work, we found out that the back third of the house is literally falling down.  Literally meaning there … (3 comments)

The Most Critical Number in Real Estate is…
Although profit is the most important thing to most businesses including Real Estate, but we need to determine what’s the most important single  number or measurement  that leads to making a profit or even more profit.
