Home owners preparing to sell their home in today's current real estate atmosphere can find the idea less than inviting and a bit daunting. However, the contrary should be true with the proper preparation. Most home owners try to determine their home's market value based on what they still owe or the improvements they have made to the house during their ownership. Unfortunately, in most instances, neither have anything to do with your home's market value. This has always been true; but, now more than ever, it is important to price your house properly from the moment it hits the real estate market. Home values can be determined through several different methods: Appraisals, CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) as well as analyzing current market reports for your geographic area along with current market trends. As an experienced, well trained Realtor®, Janice prides herself on being able to help you make sure you position yourself for success in selling...even in today's current real estate climate.
Today's Market Requires A New Approach
Choosing the right partner to market and sell your home is an important decision. The real estate world has changed dramatically and selling your property in the current environment takes a different approach. That is why we created the Advanced Property Marketing System. This powerful methodology is based upon best practices from real estate plus other relevant industries. Implementing the Advanced Property Marketing System takes more time and costs us more money – but the results speak for themselves. Since introducing this innovative system, our company has sold more properties than any other brokerage. Trendgraphix and RealValuator rank Berkshire Hathway HomeServices Georgia Properties as the #1 company in homes sold for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. The Atlanta Business Chronicle ranked our company as the #1 residential real estate company in 2010 and 2011 based upon homes sold.

Right now is one of those historic "windows of opportunity" to move to the home of your dreams. Mortgage financing options are at all-time lows and home prices remain very affordable. These conditions will not last and many potential move-up buyers will look back and regret not taking advantage of these conditions. There are options to sell or rent your current property and make these dreams come true.
If you or someone you know is facing foreclosure, a short sale may be the best solution. A "short sale" is when the lenders agree to sell the property for less than the outstanding loan amounts. By choosing this option, you can move forward to the next chapter in your life. A short sale can be a very complicated process so you need real expertise. That is why we developed a special program called Short Sale ASAP.
