metro brokers: 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)

metro brokers: 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, could become quite nauseating.
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!!!, you'll still be responsible for a great portion of the above-mentioned costs, least you'll have … (0 comments)

metro brokers: Either Love It Or Leave It....Just Don't Lowball It!! - 09/22/14 01:06 AM
The concept seems pretty 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)

metro brokers: Before you protect the world....begin with your client's earnest money - 05/30/14 05:27 AM
It all starts the 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)

metro brokers: 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'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)

metro brokers: Spring is in the air.....and buyers are ready to pounce!!!! - 03/11/13 12:53 AM
This past Saturday was an absolutely wonderful day to meet with my buyers as they chose their lot and selections for their new construction home. The weather was perfect, the birds were humming, and Spring was definitely in the air.
I'd been talking with the On-Site Agent and she'd been telling me about how they've had an influx of buyers in the community wanting to either purchase their existing inventory or build a new home and they were all complaining of the same phenomena.....very little re-sale inventory from which to choose. Most had become fed up with being in multiple offer … (3 comments)

metro brokers: Without Knowledge...."Passing The Buck" Can Be Fatal For Your Client!! - 03/04/13 11:03 PM
First of all, please allow me to preface this blog post with the following statement...."I am NOT against the use of third party negotiators handling short sale transactions. There are many effective third party negotiators and some that I would even use....after a lengthy interview, of course. The actions of some third party negotiators DO NOT reflect the actions of ALL third party negotiators".
....No that I've gotten that out of the way, it's time for me to speak my mind.
We all know that the FHA PFS program (the best thing since sliced bread in my book) is first and … (0 comments)

metro brokers: 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 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)

metro brokers: 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)
