Buyers during the fall season are highly motivated to find a home quickly. Most would prefer to be settled in before the busy holiday season arrives. This year is no different, and there are, perhaps, more buyers than in previous years looking to make a quick move. How can you make your home stand out from the rest? Check out these four easy tips sellers can use this fall to make their homes more welcoming that at any other time of year:

1.  Turn Up the Lights

As the days grow shorter, it becomes more important than ever to let your home’s light shine. Before each showing, turn on the lights in each room. Replace dingy bulbs and clean light fixtures so that soft, white light fills each space. Make your home a welcoming sanctuary on a dark

Autumn is officially here, but home sales are still sizzling in Metro Atlanta. We are experiencing one of the best real estate markets the area has seen in more than a decade. As the summer draws to a close, schools re-open and businesses rebound from Covid-19 losses, demand for homes across suburban areas is high. That’s great news if you’ve been waiting for the right time to sell!

Homes Are Spending Less Time on the Market

Amp Up Curb Appeal

As a general rule, homes look best from the street in the summer months, when trees are full of green leaves, flower beds are blooming, and the lawn is green and lush.  This does, however, require a bit of maintenance and care.  If your grass is overrun by weeds, now is the time to invest in do-it-yourself weed killer/fertilizer or call a

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.
  •  Drive your own vehicle to showings instead of ride sharing with your agent.

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.

Turn Up the Lights
