Is a real estate agent necessary in today’s hot market?

FSBO vs Real Estate Agent

FSBO vs Real Estate Agent

With metro Atlanta homes selling faster than Gladys Knight’s chicken and waffles, purchasers thinking of buying and more notably, owners thinking of selling, might be wondering if hiring a real estate agent is a necessity. Nowadays, home buyers can find homes on the internet, set up their own appointments to preview properties and submit pre-printed offers that can be obtained online or at the local office supply store. Likewise, sellers can get a for sale by owner sign, post their property on a number of FSBO marketing web sites and negotiate directly with interested parties. On the face of it, it seems that both parties may benefit by excluding third party interlopers from the deal...

Short Sale Process

Short Sale Process

Ok, so now you know what a short sale is and you are probably wondering, “what’s the next step?” Well there are a couple of significant steps involved in the short sale process. Let’s discuss the six major steps to successfully conducting a short sale.

Now, you can’t just put your home on the ma...
