Storage Unit Solutions for Sellers - JY&B Realty

Are you planning on selling your home and moving on to a new one in the near future? If so, you should know that making good use of a storage unit can help. As our real estate agents often advise home sellers, clearing out at least a third of what is now in your home can make it more appealing to buyers, helping you sell faster and possibly at a better price.

So how exactly should you use a storage unit to help you make your best sale on your home? Here are five ways storage units can help you make your home stand out from the crowd of Atlanta homes for sale:

  1. Use it to store personal items
    Personal items, like family pictures, trophies, toys, knick-knacks, and books, are the things that make a house your home. While this is a good thing in everyday life, a homey look can make selling your home more difficult. Getting such items out of the house and into a storage unit helps depersonalize the home, giving potential buyers the opportunity to picture it as their new home.

Doggie Daycares in Atlanta - JY&B Realty

Your beloved dog may be your best friend, but unfortunately, the two of you can't be together 24/7. Whether you're headed to work or leaving for vacation, trust Fido to these quality doggie daycare facilities recommended by our real estate agents.

  1. Bark Avenue Pet Resort - 2961 Olympic Industrial Drive
    Just like their humans, dogs have their own individual personalities, and they can have different responses to social activities. Bark Avenue Pet Resort specializes in non-social and senior dog care, and clients rave about the staff's knack for keeping their pets in small groups with compatible dogs. Staff members will even have one-on-one walks and playtime with dogs who are too timid to be around other animals. Hours at Bark Avenue are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

Self-Employed Mortgage Approval - JY&B Realty

Our real estate agents show Atlanta homes for sale to self-employed buyers all the time! Yes, the mortgage approval process is more stringent for people who are self-employed. But no, it's not impossible to achieve your goals. It just requires a little bit more preparation. Mortgage lenders take a wide variety of factors into account when making a decision. In the long run, their focus is on ensuring buyers are financially stable and can repay loans with no issue. Some of the key factors they look at include:

  • Employment history
  • Length of residence at current address
  • Credit history
  • Current debt
  • Monthly income

Self-employed people have all of these things, naturally. However, some of the information might be harder to pull together and present in a way lenders are willing to accept. Likewise, they may have questions about long-term financial stability, depending on occupation.

Luckily, there are steps self-employed buyers can take to make things easier. Let's look at them now.
