Atlanta Home Buyers - Are You Working with a Realtor?

Atlanta Home Buyers - Are You Working with a Realtor? Yes Several!

By Jim Crawford

Everyday we receive phone calls and inquiries on Atlanta real estate regarding Atlanta homes for sale or real estate. First of all there is more to buying and searching for homes for sale in Atlanta then just calling and asking to see homes that you've been looking at online at a minutes notice!  What normally occurs in our business is that someone invariably has something on our website or on our Atlanta real estate blog that they want to know more about or even see the property! Other times a person only wants an address so they can drive by a property! When a person calls in as experienced full time Atlanta real estate agents and professionals we will ask several questions. Some of which can be viewed below:

1. What are you looking at?
2. What is your timeframe?
3. Do you have to sell first? (If you are already own a home)
4. Are you in a lease? If so, when does it expire?
5. Have you been prequalified and pre-approved with a lender?
6. Are you working with a real estate agent?
7. Have you entered into a buyer agency agreement with another real estate agent?

These are all valid questions that need to be asked before you get into a car and start looking at Atlanta homes for sale. In the State of GA all buyers have the choice to be represented by a buyer’s agent. State law says that unless you have a signed buyer’s agency agreement in writing – you are not being represented. If fact if an agent says they are representing you as a buyers agent and do not have a signed buyers agent agreement signed with you – it is a misdemeanor – and fraud! All buyer agent agreements (contracts) must be in writing, dated, and signed by both parties!

The next item is that buying a home in Atlanta these days is a complicated process sometimes taking several months of hard work, gasoline, contract negotiations, and work to close a deal. The only way agents get paid is when a deal closes they are compensated with a commission from the sale of that home or real estate property after it closes. Keep in mind that real estate agents are not employees, and receive no benefits from the real estate broker they are licensed with!

We cannot work with buyers that will not commit to working with us without a signed buyers agency agreement. To do so would be foolish because a buyer could easily walk off after al the leg work is done and get another agent to close the deal for them. In the meantime the time allotted to buyers that are unwilling to work with us takes away time from loyal clients and other that are working with us, and amounts to lost opportunities and wasted time.

 

For more information about working with us feel free to call us or contact us for more information! It will be our pleasure to assist you! 

*STATE OF GEORGIA law prohibits Broker from representing Buyer (or Seller) as a client without first entering into a written agreement with Buyer (or Seller) under O.C.G.A. §10-6A-1 et.seq

Free CMA for Atlanta Home Values

Atlanta GA FREE CMA. Atlanta GA Home Values and Prices. Now Atlanta GA home owners and sellers if they are planning to sell a home or real estate in Atlanta GA can get a free CMA and find your homes values!  This is a great way to determine the list price for your home before you put it on the market.  As experienced Atlanta GA listing agents, we offer a FREE CMA to Atlanta homeowners that are considering listing their home with us - a Competative Market Analysis to find the best possible Atlanta GA list price of your home or real estate property.

[ Buying A Home ] [ Selling a Home ] [ Relocating ]

A Free Comparative Market Analysis or Free CMA is a great tool not only for Atlanta home sellers, but for home buyers also.
A Free CMA is just an estimate of your home or properties values based upon a local comparison in your immediate neighborhood. It will include information such as:

  • Sold Prices of Comparative Properties

  • How Long on The Market or Days on Market (DOM)

  • A Comparison of Property Features of Homes Sold and Currently Listed

  • Comparison of Ages of Home, Features and Upgrades

  • An Estimate of Price and Timeframe to Sell Based upon Current Market Conditions, and Inventory.

  • Absorption Rate - An Estimate of How Long it will Take to Sell Your Home based upon Current Market Inventory

  • Identify Current Market Competition to Your Property that is Currently on The Market.

  • Identify Appreciation Rates or Depreciation Rates in Your Immediate Area

    With the results from the CMA's SOLD homes or similar properties found in the MLS search, they will be reconciled to your home and current condition, we can arrive at a selling price. Keep in mind that the price derived from a CMA is subjective. A FREE CMA is not an appraisal. You need to hire a licensed appraiser to complete an appraisal.

Moving Tips

Atlanta GA Local and Long Distance MoversWhen a person lists their home for sale Atlanta in this market all too often they are not prepared what to do when it gets a contract and sells!  Move! That is a great problem to have these days.  However planning a move is always a smart idea for a smooth transition.  It is always good to have a plan.  So prior to a move, you should know what your total moving costs are going to be.  There is no need for surprises.   When you list your home, it is a smart idea to contact several moving companies for estimates,  and free moving quotes.  Don't forget to check out what is included in their estimate.  Have them put it in writing.  Do they include boxes and materials?  Cost of labor per hour?  Insurance?  The same is true about renting temporary storage space.  The best time to check them out is months before you actually need to use them, and not at the last minute.  Also it is a smart idea to gather together your utilities, cable TV and have all of the information you will need at your fingertips when moving day arrives and you have
