 What is the Real Estate Market like Now?

 After the Metro Atlanta and nationwide Real Estate downturn beginning in 2007, I am happy to report that the worst is OVER!  We are currently heading into Summer 2014 and everything is looking up.  Property prices have increased over 18% throughout the Metro Atlanta real estate market over the past year and due to buyer's high demand and low seller inventory, prices are still ticking up.  While we have not recovered fully and in some areas that declined as much as 60+% in value may take a few more years, we can feel confident that the worst is over and we are now in full swing recovery mode!  What does this mean for buyers and sellers at this current point?  

If you are looking to buy a home you will have delighted to hear that home buyers can still purchase homes at prices we haven't seen in almost a decade and finance these purchases at incredibly low interest rates.  

If you are looking to sell a home there is good news as well!  While I can't promise a break even figure for those who purchased at the peak of the market pre-crash there still is positive news for you!  Due to the dramatic decrease in inventory throughout the metro Atlanta area and especially in my target markets of Cobb, Paulding, Douglas, Fulton and Cherokee counties you can expect higher buyer interest and more showings than any other time in the last 6+ years.  When your property is priced correctly, due to my massive marketing campaign, my clients often experience multiple offers (many exceeding your listing price) within days or even hours of the property going on the market.

 

Buying or Selling Foreclosures?

Due to the economic climate, we have compiled a Foreclosure FAQ.  Whether you are purchasing a REO foreclosure or hoping to avoid the bank foreclosing on your home, the Walker Derby Team can help!  Please read some of our Frequently Asked Questions and contact us for more information or assistance.

 What to expect during the Short Sale Process:

There is a lot of misleading information circulating on the web and in local real estate offices concerning Short Sales.  Everyone seems to be confused with what to expect during the Short Sale process, whether this is a binding contract, etc.  The Walker Derby Team has been successfully working short sales since the early 2000's (even before most lenders knew what a short sale was!)  Due to our vast experience, we have compiled information on what to expect on both the buying and selling side of a Short Sale.

 Are you still on the fence about buying a home?

If you are unsure whether you should purchase now then I feel you have miscalculated what an amazing position you are in!  Interest rates and property prices are rising!  The savvy buyer of today will find a competitive market to choose from coupled with the lowest mortgage interest rates throughout history alongside very motivated sellers!  Buying in the current state of today's market is not easy, due to the low inventory levels you really need an experienced agent by your side to assist you in navigating this market correctly.  Visiting other real estate websites will show outdated information and many of the properties you will have interest in will actually already be under contract by the time you find them online.  Only an experienced Realtor can guide you through this market in finding your dream home!

There is NO DOUBT that this is both a BUYER'S AND SELLER'S MARKET FOR DIFFERENT REASONS!

Real Estate has always been one of the smartest investments one will make in their lifetime, easily becoming your #1 savings for retirement!

Take a moment to read why Buying a Home is a Great Investment then ask us how you can take advantage of this market to purchase with little money down and walk into instant equity!

BUYERS:  If you have been riding fences waiting for the bottom of the market to arrive, you have missed your moment however you can still purchase your dream home in 2013 for what it may have sold for in 2002 not to mention your loan having an interest rate of almost HALF what it would have been a decade ago.

SELLERS:  Did you try to sell your property in the last 5-8 years only to find the value kept going down while your home was rarely shown?  Today is a new day!  Listing your home with a member of the Jennifer Walker Derby Team will be a whiplash experience of expert Realtor advice on staging and making your home the most presentable it can be at minimal or no cost, multiple showings, quick buyer feedback and a closing right around the corner!
