Many purchasers of homes base their decision, at least in part, on the schools their children will attend. Really savvy buyers know that even if they do not have children, being in the right school district can make the difference in price and time on market when it comes time to sell their home. This is a very good website that we use to Compare Georgia Schools.

Mortgage Money

Most people finance their home purchases through Mortgage Lenders. We have written a page about Lenders called Mortgages Now which can get you started and introduce you to a few Lenders. Click here to use our Mortgage Calculator.

Local Businesses

Many people find it helpful, when buying a home, to have a list of referred local businesses to take care of everything from home repair to who do I call to get information about electrical and natural gas services. Check out this list and if you give a care, help it grow with personal referrals.

Current Information for Buyers

Did you know that the current market is showing signs of picking up? People are beginning to enter back into this market! It's a good time to buy, with attractive existing homes in good condition showing off their beautiful landscaping, fashionable new homes in new developments, beautiful upscale condos downtown, and well-planned subdivisions with family residences that will grow in value over the years.

Searching for a home

Despite (and perhaps because of) the great selections of homes in Cobb County and the Atlanta Metro, buyers are challenged with narrowing their search and finding the home or property that is uniquely appropriate for their needs. I am well qualified to help you do exactly that.

Home Search

One way to find your new home is to browse the listings (the ones you can find) for months to search out your best deal. There are still some people who drive around looking themselves - and looking at "Open Houses" is definitely out - but gauging whether the homes you find for their investment potential can be difficult and most people welcome expert assistance.

The Home Buying Process

When you think about buying a home, you're probably aware that this will possibly be your greatest investment ever (short of a good marriage and children), and you might be wondering about what it is you don’t know as you go into this process. This is where a real estate professional like Cathy Meder comes in. With the help of an experienced Realtor®, you can come out on top at a closing that might otherwise have pushed your retirement back another decade! This happens occasionally to buyers who are left thinking that if they had paid the relatively small commission that would have brought a real estate agent into the transaction to help them, they would be dollars down the road to their good.

Just call us and we’ll tell you about the home buying process if you’d like; we'd love to tell you all about it. Contact us!
