atlanta real estate seller: Be Prepared To Prepare Your Atlanta Home If You're Serious About Selling It - 06/23/14 03:11 AM

A serious Atlanta Real Estate Seller is one that is motivated to sell, perhaps the seller downsizing or been offered a promotion in another city.
If you are a motivated seller, then don’t expect your house to attract buyers if you don’t take the trouble to present it well enough.
OUTSIDE:
Take a walk down your street and look objectively at the garden.
What do you see?
If you see an untamed jungle surrounded by a busted fence leaning over instead of a well-manicured lawn and neatly pruned trees then you need to sort this out pronto. Then, check out … (1 comments)

Don’t we all love our kitchens? 
Kitchen is one of the most important parts of the house.  It is said to be the heart of the home. And I couldn’t agree more.  We simply can’t ignore our kitchen where all the good stuff is coming. We pour our hearts in the kitchen.  We share good memories countless times with our love ones during mealtime in our kitchen.  Naturally, we want our kitchen to look really nice.
In a survey published by the Houzz, it revealed the number one kitchen motivation where 79% responded to improve look and feel as … (4 comments)

atlanta real estate seller: 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)

Have you been in a situation where you enter into an unknown territory, and found that people have spoken a different language that you are not familiar with?  Or have you tried entering in a restaurant because you suddenly found yourself craving for a certain dish, wanting to order it but couldn’t do so because for some reason you cannot pronounce the name of the dish properly?
If your answers to my questions are yes then you are in danger of alienating yourself from what you really want.  So what you gotta do?  Simple, learn the lingo.
We have to … (8 comments)

This is cool.  Please read below.  This is from a manager at Microsoft after they resolved an issue I had recently.  It was a part of his follow up after the issue is resolved.  Notice they are following up after the problem is solved.  As we continuously strive to become efficiently effective in what we do we want to learn from every experience that we had in our everyday undertakings.  From this experience alone we can apply this on how we can interact better within the team as well as with people outside such as bloggers, contractors, real estate … (3 comments)

atlanta real estate seller: 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 seller: Is It Time To Sell Your Investment Property? - 04/12/13 09:37 AM
It is now well documented that inventories in markets that were rich with investment opportunities just one year ago have been drying up quite a bit. Hedge funds, private equity firms, and institutional backed organizations have been coming in and buying up inventory en masse. As a result, inventory has dried up! The result of all these is simple economics…less supply, higher demand, higher prices. And so we’ve seen some rather inflated inflation of prices in some parts of town. We have seen houses that sold for 50,000 one year ago now selling in the 70000-80000 dollar range. This is quite … (0 comments)

atlanta real estate seller: 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)
