Pricing A Home to Sell in AtlantaWhy use Jim and Ellen Crawford to sell your home? “It’s the Experience!”  I takes more than a sign in the ground to sell a home in the Atlanta or Atlanta area these days! It takes a strategy! Neighborhoods are facing foreclosures, short sales, declining home values, sold prices are dropping, and the time needed to sell a home is increasing! There are now loads of homes just sitting on the market and they are not selling! It doesn’t make sense to list a home if the agent feels they cannot sell it! Pricing is a major component of home sales! That is where Jim and Ellen have an edge! We’ve worked the softer markets in the past, and have some strategies we use to get our homes sold.

PRICING YOUR ATLANTA HOME TO SELL!

Selling your home in Atlanta Georgia? Want to know what homes are selling for in your neighborhood? What they’ve actually sold for? How much your own home is worth compared to theirs? Then pricing your home correctly from the beginning represents one of the most important factors in the selling your home. Our experience has shown us that if you price your home TOO HIGH, it may remain on the market for a long period of time – and could ultimately sell for less money than if it were priced properly from the start.

If you price your home TOO LOW, you may sell it quickly, but for less money than it is worth. Clearly, determining the correct price in which to sell your home is very important in maximizing its value to you. For results that count, contact Jim and Ellen Now!

Where Should You Price Your Atlanta Home?

There are three main pricing strategies – pricing your home: above, at, or below its market value.

  1. Priced above market value: Sellers like to price their home high, thinking that someone just might pay it. That’s unlikely – buyers shopping for a home know exactly what the market is like, and won’t be fooled into paying more than it’s worth.
  2. Priced at market value: Always a good strategy – that’s what your home is worth!
  3. Below market value!  Anyone could give your home away if it is not priced correctly!

Worried about setting the wrong price when selling a home in the Atlanta area? Ask to see the “estimates of value” collected from agents visiting your home during the broker’s open house. These estimates come from agents who work with buyers every day, and who know what buyers are willing to pay for homes. When twenty or thirty values are plotted on graph paper (or simply averaged), your home’s true value to buyers will become quite clear. If your home isn’t within 5% of the average value, it’s overpriced, and the asking price should be dropped!  Don’t let your home become an old, tired listing. It will eventually sell for less than you would have received if you’d priced it properly!

Ellen & I Don’t play pricing games when listing a home. We list our homes at the right price. Everyone benefits! This ensures that our listings sell in the shortest time for the highest price! We feel this is the best approach! Unlike other agents that will “BUY YOUR LISTING!” (Listing your home at a higher price even if it unrealistic, because the agent knows that you need to sell.) They know that your personal needs will dictate the necessity to reduce later. Within a few weeks of listing your home at the higher price, the agent will start approaching you to reduce the price. How mean! We feel that this is emotional blackmail!

Our Goals

  • Get you the most money possible;
  • Sell your home as quickly as you can;
  • Make selling your home a pleasant and profitable experience.

If you are still interested in marketing your home, we feel we can offer you a fresh approach. We’ll provide you with a personalized and professional marketing plan in order to sell your home for the highest possible price in the least amount of time. Ellen and I are extremely successful in selling homes! We provide a FREE Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) that ensures success. It is good to have a CMA before listing your home for sale. As experienced local agents we can provide you with details of the current market valuation.

We Also Serve the Following Areas: Atlanta, Crabapple, Windward, Cumming, Milton, Roswell, Johns Creek, Woodstock, Acworth, Dunwoody, Peachtree Corners, North Fulton, Cherokee, DeKalb, and Forsyth counties.

What Do I Really Want to Buy, When I Buy A Home in Atlanta?

BUYING A HOME IN ATLANTA? MAKE A LIST FIRST!

Atlanta home buyers needs make a listAtlanta home buyers Needs – Before you start looking at homes for sale in Atlanta, the best way to start the home buying process in Atlanta is to call Jim and Ellen Crawford First!  That is the best home buying tip or advice we can give you.  Then you need to make an Atlanta Home Buyers Wish List!  On that home buyers list include each and every detail you want in your new home in Atlanta.  Include location of the home, where you want to live in the Atlanta area, the school district you want, the style, age of home, size, and any other exact details that would match your description of your perfect home in our Atlanta area.  Make sure you are certain that you have included everything. Put the list away for a while, and then take it out again.  Have you thought of anything else to add? It could probably be revised hundreds of times!  Why?  Because interests and priorities change, and nothing is perfect!

That’s why there is an eraser on the back of your pencil!  There is no one home in Atlanta that will ever meet all your expectations!  If you think there is, you’ll be disappointed, and will never purchase anything.  Compromise is a reality when searching for just the right home in Atlanta. There has to be trade-offs.  You may not get the whirlpool tub you wanted, however the kitchen may have more built-ins that you had expected, and a double oven!  The garage may not be a three-car garage, but the den may have a stacked stone fireplace!Discuss each item on the list with your Atlanta REALTORS and Atlanta home buyer agents Jim and Ellen Crawford Real estate agents and Realtors in Atlanta since 1993.  This way you can decide with your agents which items will be the most beneficial to you and  your family.  Be prepared to compromise a little on the rest.  Above all, be realistic!  Look for homes in Atlanta that have the greatest number of desired features and at the best price. When you find a home with some of the less important ones present also, consider it a bonus!  Don’t be surprised if it becomes necessary to compromise on one of the top priority items.  It does happen!  For an enjoyable home purchase experience, be flexible. Each Atlanta home and property you see will be somewhat unique. So locate the Atlanta home that offers your family the most comfort and security, then be prepared to buy it.

Paint Your Home to Sell It – Atlanta Home Sellers

Paint Your Home to Sell Atlanta Home Sellers Advice! New paint makes a big difference when selling a home. Before you list your home, paint your home inside and out to get the best possible price and terms.  Keep the colors clean and neutral!  Home selling tips by Atlanta’s best listing agents.

Paint Your Home to Sell it AtlantaIf you need to paint your home in Atlanta before selling take a trip to the local paint store or home improvement center, and you’ll be amazed at all the new formulations and improvements have resulted in a new class of paints for any need.  There are stain-resistant paints and some that are odor-free,  There are now energy-efficient paints, and kitchen and bath paints, that are mildew-and mold resistant paints, and as well as a plethora of paints for decorative purposes and special effects.  Think of it as a fine suit you can dress your home in to show it at its very best.  A fresh coat of paint can also hide a multitude of sins, masking the smell of a vacant stale home, pet odors and a smoker’s home.

A new coat of paint can make the difference of whether your home will sell or just sit on the market.  Paint has many purposes.  First a new coat of paint is pleasing to the eyes. If you paint the homes exterior and trim, you now have curb appeal!  It revitalizes the look of a tired and worn property and returns it to its former glory.  However we cannot stop on the outside and disappoint buyers when they enter the home.  A fresh coat of paint is pleasing to the senses.  Paint and also depersonalize a home, and makes it more appealing and inviting to all.  A strong personal color may turn some buyers away, and a neutral color may make your home more appealing to a wider audience.  Please remember most buyers are really looking for a home in turn key condition, and like your self they are too busy to stop and paint your home after they move in.  They want a home not a project!  Another item is that paint and caulking is part of regular home maintenance.  It actually protects your home from moisture intrusion, rot, and dry rot, mold and mildew and insect infiltration.

Before you place your home on the market the smartest investment you could make is in the appearance of your home.  Make it stand out in a clean fresh light that separates your home from your neighbors!  Yes it’s an added expense, but in this market is will make a major difference.

Atlanta Home Buying Process – Where to Begin Buying a Home?

Atlanta Home Buying Process.  Atlanta home buying is a complicated process that begins with getting the right advice from a very experienced Atlanta home buyer’s agent. Buying a home in Atlanta – Where to begin the home buying process? Home buyer advice from Atlanta best home buyers agents.  You’ll find the best Atlanta Home Buyers Assistance Here!

Atlanta Home Buying Process

Atlanta Home Buyer Process.  If you’re buying a home in the Atlanta, and want the best home…on the best possible terms… then call us!  We can help.  Your’ll need Atlanta’s best agents!  We have lots of experience, and we offer full service real estate assistance.  We are full time experienced Atlanta REALTORS®, and  dedicated real estate professionals in the  Atlanta area, we can handle all the details.  

Planning to purchase a home in the near future in the Atlanta area? Then you‘ve probably been browsing the AJC real estate ads, classifieds, going to own houses, and surfing the INTERNET every day. After each real estate ad you read, you get the feeling that each is more confusing than the previous one! Your head spins as you read, “Alpharetta / Roswell 3BR, 2.55BA, 2 HVAC, FP, BSMT. $179,750.”  Your palms sweat! It is all so convoluted.  The ads, and the INTERNET will give you enough information to drive yourself crazy! What does it all mean? What does the home really look like? Where is it located? How much will the home really cost? You finally find that one home in Atlanta that sounds just right for you… then you call! After several attempts, and voice messages, you finally get through. Then you find the home is already “SOLD!” Isn’t it so frustrating? You wonder if you will ever find the home that is just right for you.  So, where do you start? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

It is difficult to translate the abbreviated words and the hype sales jargon in a newspaper or .jpeg image into the home of your dreams!   It is all just marketing.  Also, printed ads and web listings tend to be stale.  Ad deadlines have to be met sometimes a month before, especially if they are in a magazine. Yet most buyers often begin their home search by looking through ads or surfing the web. They don’t even realize what a waste of time!  It’s a very time consuming and tedious process, and now they find it is many times non productive search.  The listings are probably already sold!  These good ones always sell quick, so perhaps you are looking  at the leftovers!  The truth of the matter is that even a seasoned real estate agent couldn’t find the homes they hope to sell through the ads or on the web. The reason is, there is not enough information! All the important information is missing, because you have to call the agent to get the rest of the information. So why not try another approach?

There is no need to wander aimlessly through an endless desert of unsuitable houses. Most of the classifieds seem to be handyman’s specials, and fixer-uppers. However, these properties are in such disrepair, even a handyman would find it overwhelming. Yet the owner of the classified expects you to buy it!  

You have the power to break out of this rut! By making a single phone call to us, we can open the door to a wide selection of homes that match your exact requirements. 

Before making that call about buying a home in Atlanta, ask yourself:

  • “Am I really committed to buying a home?”
  • When will I be ready to make this purchase?”

Once you have answered those two questions contact us! Whether this is your first purchase or thirtieth, explain your purchase plans, and then be prepared to answer questions about your preferred locations, styles, price, and financing. Once you are qualified, and you feel comfortable with your monthly payments, we can set up an appointment! Ellen and Jim will develop a buyer’s home profile that best matches available homes to the one you describe, and will arrange for you to view the most suitable homes at your earliest convenience.  

If you are not pre-approved or pre-qualified for your financing, ask us to arrange a “pre-qualification” interview with one of several mortgage loan officers. The lender will explain available mortgage options, ask for credit and employment information, then advise you of the maximum loan amount for which you qualify. Once you are pre-qualified, you can shop with confidence for the perfect home.  

Getting pre-qualified is a good idea when house hunting, because it is a way of determining your budget when purchasing a home and allows you to determine the amount of your down payment as well as your monthly payments. It is important to let your agent know what you’ve qualify to purchase. A pre-qualification letter is usually received after filling out a basic application. Pre-qualification can also strengthen your position when making an offer on the home of your dreams by giving you negotiation leverage.

Once you’ve committed to work exclusively with us as your Atlanta Buyer Agents, we’ll do all the MLS searches to match your preferences. We’ll preview a wide selection of homes, eliminating already sold or under contract homes, homes not up to your standards, or ones that are otherwise unsuitable. We can then make appointments for your first visit to the best homes, and your search will begin in earnest!
