How to Get Your Dream House

Ever find out that charming house you’ve always admired has changed hands — and you didn’t even know it was on the market?

I’ll let you in on a secret: Maybe it never was.

Many Atlanta-area houses sell before they’re ever entered into an MLS database or otherwise advertised publicly, even in the city’s best neighborhoods. There are several tips for finding these properties, but it can be a lot of work. Some people suggest that you have to roll up your sleeves and direct-mail residents of the neighborhood in which you’re trying to buy. Or talk to handymen to see if they’re prepping a house that’s winding its way to a “for sale” sign. Or — egad! — pull courthouse records looking for divorcing couples. Understandably, you may not want to be that person.

But let me let you in on another secret: You don’t have to get your hands that dirty. We can help you find that place.

Or we can help you build a custom house on a lot you’ve been eyeing.

Or, on the flip side, we can help you make improvements to your house and sell it quickly and with less hassle to that family who’s been dying to get into your neighborhood right as you’re leaving.

My Perfect Home

Carter and Associates proudly offers the My Perfect Home program, which can assist in your search for the new construction or recent renovation nestled in your favorite neighborhood in Atlanta, often bypassing competition in the process.

It may surprise you to hear a Realtor suggest coming to an agency for renovation help, but it really shouldn’t. In our business, we have a network of hundreds of contacts for qualified, quality tradespeople, including architects, builders, general contractors, plumbers, electricians, or whoever else you might need.

And that’s the same network that gives us a leg up on new properties, available lots, and newly renovated spaces in your favorite neighborhoods.

We can also help you acquire land. We can link you up to experts to help finance your new construction or renovation. For builders and investors, the program includes perks like having us stage the construction for you and attend all showings of your property.

So, if you’re eyeing a project — any project, be it new, or renovated, an empty lot of not-yet-empty house — and it’s in in-town Atlanta, please get in touch with us directly.

At Carter and Associates, we never forget that the real estate in the area is more than just inventory. It’s people’s future homes. It’s quite possibly your perfect home. It’s the stuff of dreams.

And we’re ready to help make those dreams come true.
