Why You Need To Pick The Right Real Estate Agent…FOR YOU!

The real estate business can be a harsh reality. From endless days with your house on the market to losing your dream home to another buyer, there are a million and one things that can go wrong. For these reasons, it is exceptionally important that you have representation that has your best interest in mind, and is experienced enough to handle the pressure of anything thrown their way. Believe me, the last thing you want in an agent is a weak negotiator, whether you are purchasing or selling.

Remax Realtor Alpharetta Deborah Weiner
First things first, you need to choose an agent who does not do this as a hobby or part-time gig. They will only leave you feeling disappointed and angry. Full-time agents are devoted to this career and know all the in’s and out’s of the business. While the rest of the real estate world only closes on an average of 4 properties a year, RE/MAX agents close on over 16 listings and generate a little over $115,000 in annual commission sales. Also, those in the RE/MAX business typically have around 15 years of experience in real estate, which leads to happier and more satisfied customers.

Not only should your agent have experience in the industry and prime negotiating skills, they should also be constantly aware of what is going on in the market. As we all know, the real estate market can change on the dime, so agents need to be as educated as possible and quick on their feet. Remember, knowledge really is power!

Read Some Recent Testimonials About Us

Finally, marketing is a huge factor in this business. For sellers, you need to see how this agent is going to present and showcase your property to potential buyers. Do they have any materials they specially do for listings, like flyers or brochures? Will they post on social media? Will they refer their other buying clients to your property? How will they choose to stage your house and will they be honest with you about its current value? These are all extremely important points and it is wise to go over them before signing on with a specific real estate agent.

Remember, the North Atlanta Home Team will be able to provide all these for you and will always keep your best interest in mind.

We would love to help you find your dream home!

Pre-Qualified Versus / Pre-Approved, When Purchasing A Home In North Atlanta

 Getting Pre Approved For A Home LoanLooking for a home without being pre-approved?

As a potential buyer putting an offer in on a property, you’ll have a better chance of getting your offer accepted by being as prepared as possible.

The benefits of being pre-qualified and/or pre-approved can be easily understood when viewed from the seller’s perspective. Imagine you’re a seller in receipt of 2 offers to purchase your property. A complete stranger (buyer) is asking you to take your property off the market for at least the next two to three weeks while they apply for a loan.

As the seller, lets consider the type of buyer you’d prefer to deal with:

1-Neither pre-qualified nor pre-approved – This buyer provides no evidence that they can afford to purchase your property. You may wonder how serious they are since they’re not at least pre-qualified.

2-Pre-qualified – This buyer has met with a mortgage broker (or lender) and discussed their situation. The buyer has informed the broker regarding their income, expenses, assets and liabilities. The broker may also have seen their credit report. The buyer provided you with a letter from the broker stating an opinion of what the buyer can afford.

Getting The Ok On A Pre Approval Loan3-Pre-approved – This buyer has provided a broker written evidence of income, expenses, assets, liabilities and credit. A lender has verified all information. As a result, much of the paperwork for this buyer’s loan has been completed. This buyer will probably be able to close quickly. They provide you with a letter (pre-approval certificate) from the lender. You’re as certain as possible that this buyer can close.

As a potential buyer, you can see that being pre-approved will give you the best chance of getting your offer accepted. This is critical in a competitive situation. As a buyer, you never want to lose “The One” simply due to the fact, ducks were not in a row.

Update On Government Shut Down And How Banks Are Requiring The IRS 4506 Document

Banks have adjusted their policies and will not close purchases without the IRS 4506. Some banks will require a signed document from you (buyer) indicating you understand a 4506 will be required after closing. Recall the 4506 is the document the IRS provides banks confirming that the tax returns provided to the bank by you actually match what was filed with the IRS. Below are generic rules banks are following depending on your specific situation…

IRS Required 4506 Document

Conventional, FHA and VA W-2 Borrowers
Banks will underwrite and close Conventional, FHA and VA W-2 borrower loans prior to receiving the 4506 transcripts.

1. A written VOE in addition to standard documentation and verbal VOE will be required. VOE is a verification of employment. The bank will contact your employer to verify certain information in writing as well as verbally.

2. The 4506 IRS transcripts will be obtained after closing.

Self-Employed Borrowers
Banks will underwrite and close self-employed borrower loans after receiving 2012 and 2011 complete personal tax returns signed by self-employed borrower(s).

1. Underwriting may require additional documentation to support tax returns (i.e. business tax returns, cancelled check made payable to the IRS for taxes paid or proof of refund).

2. Proof the self-employed business currently exists and is in operation will be required.

3. If the borrower filed a 2012 extension, a copy of the extension and a signed Profit and Loss statement for 2012 and YTD 2013 will be required.

4. For salaried borrowers, the most recent two years personal tax returns may be required.

What Is Pre-Approval And Why Is It An Important Place For The Buyer To Begin

Pre-approval allows a lender to get a high level picture of your financial world. The loan application is the starting point. There should NEVER be any cost or obligation to apply with a lender! If a lender is trying to charge you ANYTHING to apply…find another lender!

The loan application covers everything from income to assets as well as past credit history. Loan application allows the lender to pull your credit. Banks today look to meet 3 criteria…

1. Income: is income at a sufficient level to qualify for the loan?
2. Assets: do you have the required assets to purchase a home?
3. Credit: do your scores meet minimum guidelines?

The Pre-Approval Process In GA

You must meet all 3 in today’s environment to qualify for a loan. The loan application covers all 3 items. The pre-approval makes the presumption that data provided by you is accurate. This means that we presume your income, etc is what you state on the loan application. Typically income and assets are verified AFTER pre-approval as confirmation of the information you supplied on the loan application. If you are self employed OR in sales (commissioned income) the pre-approval may require tax returns up front so that income can be confirmed. This is because often times self employed and sales people take massive tax deductions which effectively lowers their adjusted gross income.

A loan application typically takes 5-10 minutes to complete. Pre-approval typically takes less than 1 business day. More often than not the process can be completed within a few hours. IE if you send in the completed application at noon…we’ll typically have you pre-approved same business day. Once pre-approved lenders will typically ask for you to start sending in data; tax returns, W2, bank statements, etc. A question we often get is: “should we pull my credit now even though I haven’t looked at homes yet?” The answer…YES! You want a lender to look at your credit well in advance of buying.

Credit reports are notorious for having errors on them. If something turns up that you weren’t aware of, now we have plenty of time to correct it. If you wait until you sign a 30 day contract you may be in for some big surprises. Trying to correct credit issues quickly is tough to do especially if you will need a credit re-score. You can also have multiple lenders pull credit within a few weeks of each other. What you DO NOT want to do is apply with different lenders every 30-45 days over the course of 4+ months. That can damage your credit scores potentially.

The bottom line is a pre-approval should be free and with no obligation to the lender. It should also be quick and painless. Pre-approval is important as it will help you understand what you qualify to buy, options that exist, and the terms associated with the payments.

Avalon Alpharetta-Multi Use Development By North American Properties

The projected opening of this $600 million dollar project is scheduled to open Aug. 22, 2014 so there is sure to be a lot of action in the area on this 86-acre piece of land with expected 500,000 square feet of retail space.

Besides shops, restaurants, a 14-screen theater, four-star boutique hotel, and high end luxury rentals, there will be the opportunity to “Live In Avalon” by Monte Hewett Homes. This Builder Group  has been building in the area since 1988 and plans have begun to build 25 Custom Homes and more than 75 Courtyard Townhomes.

Adjacent to the Avalon are plans for a sub campus for Gwinnett Tech as well.

In my opinion, this is a great plan. Education, Movie Theatres, New Homes, Eateries, and even a planned Ice Skating Rink will give the City of Alpharetta more tax dollars while providing the residences and visitors, so many options for dinner as well as great shopping and outdoor experiences.
