At Peggy Slappey Properties, the health and well being of our clients and customers is always important to us, and now more than ever we are taking extra precautions to ensure we all stay safe while the business of real estate continues.

  •  Disinfect/wash your hands before entering a home AND after each showing.

Looking to buy a home in the near future? Listen up! These are the top five money mistakes that can jeopardize your purchase:

New Loans

Once you have secured financing, do NOT open any new lines of credit.  This means no new store credit cards, car loans, or financed purchases of any kind. If your new home needs new furniture, either use cash or wait until 30 days after closing so your debt-to-income ratio does not change.  After all, the furniture won’t do you any good if you can’t buy the house to put it in.

Missed Payments

Make all your standard monthly payments on time.  Just before closing is not the time to be forgetful about that credit card bill you’ve had since college.  Keep your credit score impeccable and unchanged in the

This past weekend brought an unexpected blast of winter to North Georgia, reminding us all that no matter what happened on Groundhog Day, Spring is still many weeks away. Maybe you’ve heard that the best time to buy or sell a home is during the busy spring market, traditionally the hottest time of year in real estate. However, in 2020 that old “rule” has been upended.

January 2020 was one of the busiest on record for Peggy Slappey Properties agents. Traffic in new home communities is way up from previous years at the same time, and resale properties – especially in Gwinnett County – are hot. This is great news for the metro Atlanta real estate market, and even better news for both buyers and sellers.

Fall is a fantastic time to sell your home. Buyers at this time of year are highly motivated to find a home quickly, before the holiday season arrives. Autumn foliage gives a timely, colorful boost to your home’s curb appeal, and there are some easy staging tips to make your home more welcoming than at any other time of year.

Turn Up the Lights

As the days grow shorter, it becomes more important than ever to let your home’s light shine. Literally, turn on the lights in each room before showings, as well as outdoor lights. Replace dingy bulbs and clean light fixtures so that soft, white light fills each space. Make your home a welcoming sanctuary on a dark evening, and home shoppers will remember it as a brightly lit, friendly place they could
