Here are four of the most popular misconceptions concerning real estate:
#1. Why Hire and Agent, I Can Search For Homes Myself~
The general public only has access to a limited amount of listings and many of those homes are already under contract or sold! Your agent net works constantly with other top area agents and knows when homes are getting ready to be listed. Many homes never even hit the market place. Finally, having an agent searching for you saves you time and money. You won't have to drive around neighborhoods looking for signs. I will send you daily emails that have the listings you might be interested in.
#2. I Only Want The Agent Who Specializes Where I Want To Live~

We have represented Buyers and Sellers from Downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods to Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta, E. Cobb, Dallas, Vinings, Dallas, Peachtree Corners including all of Gwinnett County, Lake Rabun, Lanier, Burton, and everywhere in between!
#3. I Can Handle The Contract Details Myself~
Wrong! Unless you work with the Georgia Purchase and Sale on a daily basis you will not be aware of the constantly changing contingencies. Many times during the year the contract may change. Your professional will guide you through the most important details of the contract~
#4. I'll Buyer From That Friendly Onsite Agent At The Subdivision~
THE LISTING AGENT DOES NOT REPRESENT YOU! They represent the Seller and their loyalty is with the Builder. In addition, the contracts that many builders use are written by them. They are NOT the standard GAR contracts. You must have an agent representing you when dealing with a Builder.
