How Important is School District When Buying a Home?

Whether or not you have children, the school district should be essential for your home search. Knowing the quality of the local school district should be a factor you consider, in addition to the home criteria, location, walkability, access to highways and public transportation, plus any other criteria that is important to you. A home in an excellent school district can protect your house from market fluctuation and aid in resale value. If you’re embarking on a home search, here are some reasons why you should always consider the school district during your home search and what to look for.

Determine What’s Important to You in a School

Pros and Cons of Selling During Summer

The most common time to list a home is during the spring selling season. However, timing doesn’t always work out as expected. If you’re considering selling your home during the summer instead, it comes with its own pros and cons. Explore the benefits and drawbacks of selling your home during the summertime.

Pros of Selling Your Home During the Summer:
Capitalize on a Low Inventory Market
The current market is still a seller’s market with low inventory. By listing your home this summer, you can take advantage of this market as a seller and likely get your asking price or higher.
Summer Buyers Often Have a Sense of Urgency
Whether potential buyers have already sold their home during the spring selling season and need to move into a new house or have school-aged children and need to be in the new school district by the start of the school year, summertime buyers often have a higher sense of urgency.

Expenses to Expect When You Close in Atlanta, Georgia

If you’re a first-time buyer or if you’ve lived in the last home you bought for a long time and it’s been a while since you’ve gone through the buying process, I’ve got a checklist for you of what expenses to expect.

Surprise! It’s not just the down payment! You’ll need to bring more cash to the closing table than your down payment alone.

This can differ from state to state, but I’m a realtor in north metro Atlanta, so here’s a breakdown for Georgia:

First, right after you get an accepted offer on your new home, you’ll want to schedule an inspection. There are many professional inspection companies across metro Atlanta. You and your family many already know of one or I have several I can refer to you.
