Agents and staff at Peggy Slappey Properties (PSP) recently celebrated BIG accomplishments with an elegant evening at 1818 Club in Duluth, GA. Each year, the North Atlanta Metro Association of Realtors (NAMAR) names top producers and recognizes long term achievements by members in the region. The official Million Dollar Club (MDC) awards were given in a virtual event, but PSP took the extra step to hold a small event honoring all the PSP agents who received awards this year. It was a night of delicious food, live music, and laughter as Broker and Owner Peggy Slappey along with Sales Manager Mary Kelley handed out each award along with a special gift.

Join us in celebrating these outstanding successes one more time. 2020 was undoubtedly one of the

The real estate market in Metro Atlanta is on fire this spring. Homes are selling at a record pace. Multiple offer situations happen every day. There is a shortage of homes for sale, which means competition is fierce. How can you, as the buyer, be a top contender and hopefully the winner when it comes to the home of your dreams?

Rule No. 1 – Don’t Wait

In today’s fast-moving market, the buyer that waits is often the buyer who misses out. We understand how big the decision to buy is, but thinking it over for 24 hours gives all the other buyers (and there are a lot of them) time to move before you do. Believe it or not, homes today are selling even before they are officially listed, which makes working with a qualified PSP Realtor even more

Buyer’s agents are a huge asset to your home buying experience. They make your search, negotiation, and final transaction more professional and less stressful, especially if you’ve never previously bought a home. They are an indispensable ally in your search for the perfect home. 

Local Knowledge

Realtors understand the importance of local knowledge. Maybe the local school was one of the lowest ranked in the state last year. Maybe a commercial building is slated to move in across the street.  Local information affects price, the length of time a home might sit on the market, and, perhaps, your willingness to buy a particular home. A buyer's agent's goal is to help you make the right decision with all the information available.

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.

What Buyers Can Do

  • If you don’t feel well, please stay home.
  •  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
