Is a quick move-in home right for you? A “quick move-in” is a real estate term used to describe new construction that is complete or nearly complete, allowing for an accelerated closing date compared to building new from the ground, up. There are great benefits involved if you find one that checks off your must-have list.

No Waiting Period

There is no seller with a move-out time frame, and you will not wait the 6-10 months that it takes to build. The builder wants to sell as quickly as possible, and quick move-in homes allow for closing in as little as 30 days. For cash buyers, it could be even faster.  Some custom home builders may even allow buyers to make final design selections if the home is not yet fully complete.

The real estate market in Metro Atlanta is sizzling this spring, and competition for homes in desirable areas is fierce. Homes that stand out from the competition are bringing in multiple offers, often over the asking price. Before photos are taken and your home is officially listed, follow a few simple staging tips to make it stand out from the rest.

Clear away the clutter.

Always the first step when a home is listed, clearing clutter can also be the most difficult. We grow accustomed to seeing those bookshelves bursting and drawers overstuffed. It can be hard to see your own home from an objective point of view. Try to step back and see each room as a stranger would. Assume buyers will open every cabinet and every drawer. Then, make them tidy.
