Atlanta GA Buying a Home During the Holidays
If you've spent month after month checking out Atlanta homes for sale, you're probably ready for an end-of-the-year break. House hunting takes a lot of time and energy, but there are many reasons to continue your search during the holidays. As the city comes alive with holiday cheer, Atlanta homes seem even more beautiful. If you get tired of your search, you'll have Christmas festivities to keep you in a jolly mood.

Our real estate agents understand that many home buyers and sellers take a holiday break, but that makes home-shopping easier for you. Continuing your home search during the holidays is smart. Here are five reasons why.

  1. Inspired Sellers
    While some home sellers abandon their marketing efforts during the holidays, others feel highly motivated to continue. As homeowners deactivate their listings, only the truly inspired home sellers try to connect with serious buyers. Their reasons vary. They could have a job in another city. The family could be downsizing because of a pending retirement or upsizing due to a family addition. Whatever their reason for opening up their home to strangers during the holidays, they'll be receptive to the buyers who show up.

Atlanta Holiday Home Safety Tips
The holiday season brings with it an air of excitement and warmth. Amid all of the hustle and bustle of shopping, making preparations for your family gathering, or even finalizing plans for your holiday trip, would-be thieves are also getting ready for the season too. Our real estate agents know the last thing you want this holiday season is for a break-in to happen and ruin your family's holiday and peace of mind. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to safeguard your home during the holidays so you can enjoy this time with your friends and family.

  1. Discourage Package Thieves
    With the rise of online shopping, packages delivered to your home are a target for thieves. Consider having your goods delivered to your office, a neighbor or other point of delivery if you won't be home to receive them. If you do have packages delivered to your home, be sure the front door and walkway are visible to your neighbors, and that home security cameras provide a view of the front door.
