Exterior Home Improvements-JYB Realty

It's every seller's dream for buyers to come see their home and instantly fall in love. But how do you know what buyers are really looking for? Our real estate agents have lots of experience with Atlanta homes for sale and there are just some things that buyers want to see again and again. If you're lucky enough to have these features already in your home, make sure buyers know about them. If you're looking to make some improvements before you sell, these exterior features are sure to get a buyer's attention.

  1. Exterior lighting. Exterior lights serve two purposes, so if you don't have any, adding some offers a lot of value for your home improvement dollar. Aesthetics and safety are top considerations for homeowners, and exterior lighting provides both. Lights can be part of the security system with motion sensors, they can highlight areas of the property, or provide illumination by entrances or along pathways or stairs for extra safety.

Early Mortgage Payoff-JYB Realty

Our real estate agents help people with all kinds of financial backgrounds to purchase Atlanta homes for sale. Many people have questions about the process of getting a loan—and most are concerned about what it means for their long-term financial health.

A common question we hear at Josey Young & Brady Realty has to do with pre-payment. Pre-payment is the term for paying off your loan before the anticipated date, typically 15 or 30 years from the time the loan is issued.

Some lenders specify that paying off a large loan early will cause the lender to incur a penalty. However, this practice has largely been done away within the world of home loans. In general, if you end up with a windfall of spare cash, you can pay off your mortgage whenever you wish.

It may seem intuitive that the sooner you pay off your mortgage, the better. It's a huge milestone in life and a weight off your mind. However, it's not always wise to take the plunge.

Even if you end up with a large lump sum such as an inheritance or contest winnings that could pay off your mortgage, you might be better off continuing monthly payments.
