FAQs about residential real estate in Winder and Barrow County, GA

If you’re starting the home buying or selling process in Winder and Barrow County, GA, you probably have a few questions about what to expect and how to prepare. There’s no need to feel overwhelmed about the process when you partner with David Steele & Associates LLC. Here are the answers to a few questions you might have:

Can I buy a home and sell my current one at the same time?

Yes. It can be a little scary if you put a home under contract before your home sells, but it’s done quite often. Most people prefer to start looking once they have a buyer lined up for their home, but it just depends on you.

Do I really need a real estate agent when buying a home?

Yes. Buying a home is not something most people do more than a few times in their lives. The seller is using a real estate agent to list their home and is paying for you to have an expert give you sound advice. In most cases, having a buyer’s agent costs you nothing because the seller has already built this into the cost of selling.

How long does the home buying process take?

This depends on many things, such as your taste and the availability of homes you like that are in your price range. Are you going to be paying cash for the home, or are you going to require a mortgage? Based on the answer to these questions and others, it can take as little as a few weeks to a few months to complete the process.

What steps should I take to prepare my home for sale?

We have a list of things we recommend you do to prepare your home for sale. Please contact your real estate agent, and we’ll provide it for you.

What are the two most important factors when looking for a new home?

The two most important factors when looking for a home are:

  • Affordability: A home in the right location must be affordable.
  • Location: It doesn’t matter how affordable a house is if it’s not in the right location.
