Home can mean many things to different people. Sure, it’s the place where you sleep a night. But home is much more than just a house. It’s also the neighborhood you live in and the people who live in the houses around you – people who often become life long friends.
There’s a saying among Realtors these days that goes like this: The last generation looked forward to the day they could pay off their mortgage, but this generation looks forward to the day they can get one. There is a lot of truth in this. And that is why it is key for Sellers to understand just how important that home loan is to Buyers.
Reading through this Carter and Associates annual Decatur market report, you’ll notice we repeatedly mention how the most successful homes sales in the area are homes that are “move-in ready”. This is because today’s homes shoppers are buying the absolute most house that they can afford. They are treating their home as an investment, not just a place to live.
