Woodstock GA Real Estate Happenings…

Georgia Real Estate Market is Good!

It has already been a great year for me in the Georgia real estate market!  My listings are getting activity, my websites are getting hits like crazy, I am getting many buyer calls as well as listing calls!  I have already sold 2 of my listings (listed under 90 days before contract), sold one buyer client and I am staying very busy! I know that the overall feel for the Georgia real estate market is that the economy is bad and that it is a bad time to buy or sell, but I am here to tell you differently.  2007 was my best year ever in Real Estate!  I sold MOST of my listings within the original 90 day listing period, helped MANY buyers locate, negotiate and close on their new homes. 

The interest rates are still good and there is a high volume of homes to choose from ~ so now is the time to buy!
Life is GOOD!

Homeowners, your home will sell! Find an experienced REALTOR® who:

  • will be honest with you about your home’s condition and give you suggestions to make your home more appealing to buyers
  • will be honest with you about your home’s market value and not overprice just to get the listing
  • will give you a reasonable commission rate
  • will market your home with a proven strategy
  • will give you updated weekly web statistics showing you how many people who are viewing your home on the internet
  • will give you monthly market updates showing real estate activity in your subdivision, community, county and more.
  • will stay in touch with you and provide feedback for all showings
  • explain all aspects of the transaction in detail
  • has excellent negotiation skills and knows the GA contracts inside and out
  • will look out for your best interest above all!

Buyers, don’t be afraid to buy a home!  Real Estate is still one of the best investments you can make!  Find an experienced REALTOR® who:

  • will explain all aspects of purchasing a home
  • will provide you with a list of reputable lenders (if necessary)
  • will actually listen to you in terms of what kind of home YOU are seeking
  • will happily show you properties that you wish to see
  • will provide you with all information available with regard to the home you select including tax information, schools, neighborhoods, etc.
  • will provide you with a detailed CMA (comparable market analysis) prior to making an offer so you don’t offer too much!
  • has excellent negotiation skills so as to get you the best deal possible!
  • will advise you with regard to different terms in the contract and which options are best for you
  • will look out for your best interest!

A great REALTOR® does much more than the aforementioned, but if you will find a Realtor who does the above – I feel that she/he will go over and above to do the best job for you.

Buyers, did you know that you can have your own Realtor and it won’t cost you a penny?  The buyer’s Realtor’s commission is built into the listing agreement and the listing agent splits his/her commission to get other agents to bring their buyers!

Sellers, I have found that there are so many homeowners that don’t realize that ALL agents licensed in Georgia can show your home when it is listed.  Remember that so many buyers already have a REALTOR® and that you would miss out on those buyers if your Realtor (listing agent) was the only one to show your home.  It is more likely for a Realtor (or agent) other than your listing agent to provide the buyer that will purchase your home in the Georgia market!  Since your home will be listed on the local multiple listing service, which is where Realtors find homes to show their clients (and so many buyers have access to search this database as well), it is likely that your buyer will find your property here!

I hope you have found my blog informative!  I also hope that you will contact me with your Georgia home buying or selling needs!  I will always work hard to make your real estate dreams and goals a reality! You can visit my website at: www.bestgahomes4sale.com for additional buying or selling information, to search thousands of Georgia property listings with photos and virtual tours (no registration/sign-up required!) or to find out more about my services areas & more!  I hope you have a great day!

Kind Regards,
Michelle Miller,
