    Over the years, we collected great questions from buyers and interviewed people to uncover how we can make the home buying process as smooth as possible. We’ve found that many buyers start searching online for homes three months, six months, or even a full year ahead of when they intended to buy.

    That’s why we created the SellsStrong 5-Step Buyer System. Here’s a brief overview of how it works:

    1. Dream Home Finder Quiz – 7 Key Criteria: There are seven key criteria we ask in order to find you the best home possible. Features, such as how many bedrooms and bathrooms are as important as what your commute looks like on a daily basis. As we all know, the commute in Metro Atlanta can be crazy. We ask questions like these to pinpoint what we need to find for you in a home.

    In today’s hot real estate market, crafting a personal letter to the seller can make a BIG difference when submitting an offer on a home.

    So what should this letter say? First, list what made you fall in love with their home. When you enter a home and notice certain features that you absolutely love, like the amount of light being let into the kitchen, don’t hesitate to tell the seller. Sellers ...

    Of all the steps that go into the process of buying a home, the pre-approval is one of the most important. 


    So, what does pre-approval actually mean? 



    For pre-approval , you first speak to a lender for a pre-qualification letter based on your finances—which will be indicative of your ability to buy a home. 



    Our current market holds a wealth of opportunities due to low interest rates, but before even starting your car to go look at homes you should thoroughly understand your buying power.
