Atlanta Homebuyers Realty Group take pride in informing our sellers of several options they can choose from when it comes to listing real estate in Georgia. Read below to see which option works best for you.
1. Sell Your Home AS IS
If you are low on money for repairs, do not fret. Sellers can still place their homes on the market AS IS and still make money.
2. List Your Home and Sell for Top Dollar
To get the highest price for your home, sellers will need to consider replacing the carpet or flooring throughout, painting the interior and exterior of the home, updating and installing stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, replacing outdated light fixtures, and replacing the roof, if necessary. Doing these repairs, and more, will almost always ensure you get top dollar for your home.
3. Sell Fast Because You are Facing Hardship
If you are facing hardship and need to sell your home quickly, your options may include a short sale, quit claim deed or deed in lieu of foreclosure. These three options require professional expertise from a real estate professional. Because there are many layers involved, in-depth dialogue is required to determine which option is in the best interest of the seller.
4. Have Someone Take Over Your Late Mortgage Payments
If you are behind on your mortgage, you can protect your credit by avoiding foreclosure and have someone take over your mortgage payments. This usually involves a buyer taking over your payments and/or catching up the arrears which, in turn, improves your credit score over time. Sellers using this option can walk away from the home knowing the mortgage payments will be paid on time and knowing they will avoid foreclosure, saving their credit.
5. Sell Your Rental Property
There is nothing like having a tenant that lives in your property, but never pays the rent. On the other hand, there are instances where landlords decide they can no longer manage their rental properties and are forced to sell. If you have bad tenants or your are an absentee owner, or a landlord who'd like to retire, right now is the idea time to sell your investment properties. Whether single family homes or commercial properties, AHRG can help. AHRG can also assist with the eviction process and help landlords liquidate their assets fast.
6. Sell Your Home "For Sale By Owner"
In some cases sellers feel like they would rather save the 6% commission paid to a Realtor and attempt to sell their home on their own. Due to it being a sellers market, some homeowners are choosing to pay our company a flat fee to enter their home in MLS only. Because of this growing trend, Atlanta Homebuyers Realty Group created a new division, GeorgiaMLSFlatFee.com where we provide a MLS listing service for sellers who desire to take the challenge of selling their homes "For Sale By Owner".
