With summer officially here, Metro Atlanta home sales are continuing to heat up. With inventory still low, new mortgage programs available, and plenty of buyers in the market, summer might be the best time to list your house this year. While other sellers wait for the spring market, you can gain the advantage with a summer listing.

With long, sunny days there is no reason not to let the natural light shine in listing photos. Summer photos are brilliant with light, which will grab buyers’ attention in those online listing services where every buyer starts their home search.

Are you thinking of selling your home but worry that your kids could ruin the process before it even starts?  It’s summer, so the kids are home more often, and they like to leave their mark. Cheerios under the couch, giant toy boxes in the living room, and messy kids’ bedrooms can indeed be turn-offs to buyers, so here are a few tips to help parents sell quickly without all the stress:

Invite Kids to Help De-Clutter

Cleaning up and packing the clutter is the first step in any plan to sell a home, but with kids involved, it gets a little tricky.  A great way to avoid the tantrums caused by packing their favorite stuffed friends is to let them choose what stays and what gets packed and put into storage.  Explain that their things are not

Just one week ago, Peggy Slappey Properties visited Mountain View High School in Lawrenceville to provide lunch to the teachers and staff on the final day of school.  We handed out a few prizes and celebrated the end of another successful school year with these amazing people who prepare our kids for so much of what the future might hold.
