Tips for Buying a Home

Tips for Buying a Home in the Greater Athens, GA Area

  1. Read this blog and learn all about the process.
  2. Organize your finances, decide on a budget, and get pre-approved for a loan (ask Mackenzie for local Athens area lender recommendations below).
  3. Find a local REALTOR® to represent you as a buyer's agent. In a typical transaction this costs the buyer nothing and can be a huge help in finding properties, determining market value, negotiation strategies, and helping find other professionals, such as lenders and home inspectors. Be sure to choose an agent you get along with that knows your market area and communicates well.
  4. With your agent, narrow your home search by determining your wants and needs. Be realistic with your budget.
  5. Be prepared to act quickly when you find the perfect place. If you are adequately prepared beforehand, this can be done with confidence!
