Without a doubt, there has never been a better time to hit the jackpot in the Atlanta real estate market. A combination of low interest rates that extend your buying power and a tidal wave of foreclosures and short sales makes it highly likely your going to be taking a victory lap around the closing table.
But to get there you are going to need a plan. So, here’s what I would recommend:
1. Get Focused
2. Stay Focused
3. Be Prepared to Spring Into Action
4. Take Action
5. Follow Through
6. Celebrate Your Victory
Economists and other real estate industry experts say the worst is over. But they still expect slight declines and flat pricing for the metro Atlanta area in the near future. Of course, each neighborhood is a micro-economy, so be sure to ask me what’s happening in the ITP (inside the perimeter) community you’re most interested in.
By far, the most important step toward reaching your goal is to clearly identify exactly what you want. Now, this is tougher than it sounds. But with the right consultant in your corner, this can be done quickly and painlessly. Trying to skip this step and follow the, “I’ll know it when I see it” approach will only lead to headache and heartache.
That approach worked OK before the economic meltdown. But when you are unable to focus on what’s most important, you end up wasting a lot of time and energy on things that don’t come close to meeting your ultimate dream.
Real estate isn’t rocket science. But there are way too many choices to choose from in metro Atlanta right now. Take a moment, take a deep breath and ask yourself who can best help you accomplish your goals?
Now, go get the help you need from a professional you trust.
If you’re buying – or about to buy – real estate in metro Atlanta right now, you should feel like a kid in a candy store. If you don’t, Why don’t you? And if you want to, call 678-595-4448.
