How does it all work?
Below you’ll find several frequently asked questions and answers… We are continually improving and expanding our site with the goal of providing information that will help you in your search. You’ll enjoy the updated photos, expanded community descriptions, helpful internal links, area maps, a Newsreel, and more! We also hope to have the opportunity to help you in your home purchase or resale. If you are selling your home, we offer unparalleled service for marketing your home to the widest range of prospective buyers.
If I plan to finance my purchase, when should I begin my work with a mortgage lender?
We encourage home buyers interested in financing their purchases to speak with a lender as quickly as possible. This is an important first step.
Most important is your work with a lender to determine which mortgage loan program is best suited to your current financial picture and future goals. With your lender’s guidance and mortgage product information in hand, we’ll be best able to help you match your financing to the homes most likely to capture your interest!
If you have a lender in mind, that’s excellent. If not, you may want to secure the recommendation of a family member, close friend or trusted colleague. We are also happy to provide a list of loan officers known to our office. There is no obligation that any of our clients work with a lender suggested by our office, although we confess we think these loan officers are among Atlanta’s best! Most importantly, we encourage you to work with a lender who is affiliated with a reputable mortgage lender, experienced, and accessible to you throughout the process.
I’m a first time home buyer. Will you help me?
Absolutely! We will do our level best to assist you, and to offer our finest professional service whether you’re purchasing your first home or are a new or experienced homeowner in transition from one home to another. We delight in helping first time home buyers make the transition from paying rent to owning, and will take excellent care of you throughout your entire purchase process through and beyond closing. We’re here to help!
How does the buying process work?
Our career commitment is to the representation of buyers and sellers of real estate. Our goal is to facilitate this process…to make it flow as easily and smoothly as possible.
Working together, we can make all that happen…in the celebration of your decision to buy your first home or to transition from one property to another. We’ll begin with lender prequalification, work with you on the development of a home search wish list, schedule your first appointment out to preview the best candidate homes, present and negotiate an offer when you’re ready to take that step, assist with all the steps from contract to close, and help to facilitate a smooth closing when you’ll hear the wonderful exclamation: “CONGRATULATIONS! You’re a homeowner!”
