coweta real estate: Is Your Lack Of A Downpayment Preventing You From Purchasing A Home?? - 08/25/15 01:47 AM
Well....it's no secret that our current real estate market is on FIRE!!! Especially in our markets in Coweta, Fayette, Fulton, and Henry County, well priced homes are selling faster than the hotcakes at IHOP on a beautiful Saturday morning. Smart buyers are noticing exceptional deals and taking every opportunity to capitalize on them.
 
WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE YOU??
 
Have you been considering purchasing a home, but are worried that your income isn't substantial enough to qualify? Or maybe you have very little funds for a down payment?
Well...there are viable options for homeownership for families such as yours!

coweta real estate: An ounce of prevention is ALWAYS worth a pound of cure!! - 09/30/14 04:20 AM
It's no secret that our current real estate market in Newnan is fast and furious....even now, during the "slow" months, properly priced homes are selling at record pace. Now...given this information, it's important that Buyer agents are diligent in representing their client's interest to the fullest.
 
Here's the scenario....
 
I have an absolutely HAUTE short sale listing in a VERY fast paced market that recently came back on the market. As expected, we've had a FLURRY of activity and it wasn't long before a full-priced offer was submitted. Prior to sending the offer, I emailed the buyer's agent with … (2 comments)

coweta real estate: USDA Rural Development Financing.....A diamond in the rough!! - 09/23/14 12:47 AM
There are SOOOOO many costs involved with actually purchasing a home that it sometimes tend to be quite disturbing. Closing costs alone can cost a buyer up to 6% of the purchase price of the home! Not to mention earnest money deposits, home inspection fees, appraisal fees, etc....it could become quite nauseating.
 
HOWEVER......
 
There's rest for the weary....hope for the hopeless....a rainbow at the end of the storm!!! USDA Rural Development has a loan product that provides 100% financing to its buyers!!! Yes....now, you'll still be responsible for a great portion of the above-mentioned costs, BUT....at least you'll have … (0 comments)

coweta real estate: Either Love It Or Leave It....Just Don't Lowball It!! - 09/22/14 01:06 AM
The concept seems pretty simple.....in theory. You're in the market for a home, find one that you ABSOLUTELY fall in love with, and make every attempt in the world to try to get it for as little as humanly possible by submitting an offer considerably less than the list price and its market value.
 
Here's the reality...
1) Unless you're dealing with an Institutional Seller (Banks, Credit Unions, Investors, Etc) and the person on the other end is just some number cruncher whose simply waiting to go home at 5:00, then you're most likely going to completely upset the Seller, … (2 comments)

coweta real estate: Before you protect the world....begin with your client's earnest money - 05/30/14 05:27 AM
It all starts the same....you list a "haute" property in great condition that's price just right and you receive a FLOOD of phone calls.
This is exactly what happened to me, but one particular call stood out from the others...this agent spoke of her client who has a disabled child and they'd already looked at about 50 properties...and missed out on about 20 of those. Instantly, I felt her pain. She showed the home and quickly submitted an offer....A GREAT OFFER, might I add. She quickly explained that all of her client's financials and paperwork had been turned in to the … (2 comments)

They're NOW allowing short sale agents to view valuation reports!!!!
YEP!!!
What's more??? We may request a reassessment of value if we believe that the appraiser/bpo agent literally pulled a comp from the depths of hell in an effort to save time and finish the report before having a margarita (not that I've ever done that as a bpo agent!)
Now, of course, I'm totally not sure of just how effective this new process will be. However, I will be … (0 comments)

coweta real estate: Overpriced Listings.....the age old dilemma with a new twist! - 08/01/13 12:28 AM
Picture it....Georgia 2013......
The real estate market across the State is experiencing some major transformations. Buyers are scrambling to find homes and Sellers are once again in the driving seat! We're seeing lower Seller paid closing costs contributions and home prices are steadily increasing. Multiple offer situations on well priced normal market sales are becoming the norm....it's definitely a change from two years ago.
Now....please don't mistake me for someone whose too afraid to push the envelope when it comes to pricing. In fact, I think that this market is PERFECT to test the waters a bit....for properties that are WELL … (4 comments)

coweta real estate: Looking to purchase a Georgia home, but are a little low on funds??? - 07/31/13 02:36 AM
It's the age old dilemma coming back to bite you in the tookas....you've worked hard to maintain good credit and have become weary of renting. You decide that you're finally ready to make the commitment to purchasing a home, and......WAIT A MINUTE..... You need HOW MUCH money for down payment, earnest money deposit, inspections, appraisals, closing costs.....WHEW!!!! It can be quite overwhelming!!!THE GOOD NEWS IS....... there are STILL viable down payment assistance programs available to first time homebuyers in Georgia! YES!!! These programs are designed to help defray some of the associated costs involved with purchasing a new home. Some of tYES!!!! … (0 comments)

coweta real estate: Can't afford a home inspection??? Then you can't afford to buy a home! - 07/09/13 01:04 AM
It seems that we've weathered the storm of the foreclosure craze and have experienced a massive pendulum shift in which home seller's can pretty much dictate what they want for a change. Multiple offer and calls for highest and best on NORMAL market sales have become the norm for some markets. All of this is absolutely outstanding.....if you're looking to sell your home.
HOWEVER......
If you're a buyer trying to purchase a home and keep being disappointed by losing out to some cash buyer whose offering $10,000 over the listed price, then it becomes a different story......
I've noticed an increasing … (2 comments)

coweta real estate: Short Selling a Tenant Occupied Home????? Are you ready for DRAMA??? - 03/01/13 03:02 AM

As short sale agents, we have to endure the craziest scenarios. If it's not the most asinine requests from some banks/servicers, then surely it's the unusual repair requests from buyers (yeah right....my Seller's selling his home via short sale, hasn't paid squat towards a mortgage in over three months...HOWEVER, he/she certainly has $10,000 to pay for new carpet and paint). My all time favorite has always involved selling a tenant occupied home.

It always starts out the same.....Seller contacts me about selling a tenant occupied home and my first question is ALWAYS whether or not there's a current lease. In my latest escapade, the tenant was on a … (2 comments)

coweta real estate: Due Diligence.......It's not just for breakfast anymore!!!! - 02/26/13 11:19 PM
Here's the scenario.......Listing Agent has a million dollar listing in a high end community. The property is still owner occupied and is filled with extravagant and expensive furnishings. An unrepresented Buyer approaches the listing agent and gives her an exciting story about winning the Colorado lottery. She also mentions how she has made it her life mission to adopt homeless children and give them a lifestyle that supercedes the one that they're currently living. She needed an opulently spacious home and this property fit the bill. The listing agent was delirious at the prospect of selling this property at FULL PRICE … (6 comments)
