The real estate market in Metro Atlanta is sizzling this spring, and competition for homes in desirable areas is fierce.

  1. LEAVE!  This is, perhaps, the most important rule of “Selling 101.” Real estate agents the world over will tell you that buyers are more comfortable and more able to picture themselves in the home when the current owners are nowhere in sight.  Although you might be tempted to stay to hear feedback, it’s better to clear out,
