If you are looking for a new home this summer, it’s a great time to start teaching your kids about why owning a home is so important. Real estate investing is the foundation of the American Dream, whether your family owns one home or many.

Teach Them to Save

Although there are loan programs to help buyers with small savings, it is almost inevitable that buying real estate will require a personal investment of cash. Teach kids the importance of setting a portion of whatever they earn aside. Allow them to divide their money into categories like giving, spending, saving, and investing. Habits made young will be reinforced as they age and begin to earn more.

Let Them Help Create a Budget

Real estate is moving fast in metro Atlanta. Homes are selling in record time, often on the first day listed. To navigate this fast-paced market, it’s more important than ever before to have an experienced, trusted listing agent on your side.

Getting the Right Price

Your listing agent will start with a current market analysis, using other homes in the area, your home’s unique features, and the latest market trends to determine what your home is worth. Because demand for homes has risen so quickly in 2021, it’s not uncommon to receive multiple offers far over asking price. But the baseline is still important. Setting an accurate starting point will determine how much money is in the seller’s pocket at closing.
