Atlanta’s 1st Quarter Market Update
Tips For Sellers
Even in this strong Sellers’ Market, the condition of your home and pricing it right is crucial to getting the highest possible price. Recent industry studies show that pricing at market value will more likely result in a bidding war and a sales price over list. If you focus on the condition of your home by keeping up with maintenance, and staging it when it’s time to sell, it will sell much faster. Don’t sell yourself short by cutting corners in this market!

Tips For Buyers
In today’s environment, chances are good that your offer will be competing against other buyers. To win, it’s imperative that you bring your best offer to the table. To do that, you must know what you can afford, get pre-approved versus pre-qualified, be flexible with timing, and think outside-the-box in regard to the contingencies. The bottom line is that you need to be strategic and move quickly!
