Competitive Housing Market - JYB Realty

The 2021 housing market is a royal flush for sellers – inventory is low, buyer demand is high, and mortgage rates are at historical lows. If you're buying in an extreme seller's market, you're bound to experience stiff competition, and you'll be expected to make quick decisions. In sought-after areas, houses like these Atlanta homes for sale are going under contract in just a matter of days due to competitive bidding.

So here's the question, is this a good time to buy? Yes, if you're ready. The best time to buy a home is when you're ready. Don't let the competition scare you from closing on your dream home.

Extremely low housing inventory has made it difficult for most buyers to lock in a deal. But fret not; with these tips, you'll be able to secure the right home for you.

Picnic in the Park - Atlanta, GA - JYB Realty

Get your checkered blanket, pack your favorite food, grab your favorite people, head to the park, and enjoy an al fresco lunch, because June 18 is International Picnic Day. This unofficial holiday is all about enjoying good food and good company in a beautiful setting. Our real estate agents hope you get a chance to soak up some sun and have fun in a park around Atlanta. Here are some of the parks that offer a grassy spot, as well as scenic and active settings.

  • Historic Fourth Ward Park - 680 Dallas St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
    Located just a few blocks from Atlanta homes for sale, the Historic Fourth Ward Park is one of the highest-rated in the area. It offers 17 acres of green space, a skate park, a 2-acre lake, and athletic fields. The kid-friendly spot has a splash pad, slides, and climbing structures. You can grab a picnic bench, but there are lots of wide-open spaces where you can set up a picnic if the area is busy.

Listing Photos - Sell a Home - JYB Realty

Times have changed. From birthday presents to a new pair of shoes, shoppers seek the items they desire online, avoiding brick-and-mortar stores. The same holds true of home sales, shifting the focus from driving through the neighborhood to looking at houses online. Our real estate agents will assure you that if you want to sell your home quickly and easily, you'll invest in a series of listing photographs that will show your house to its greatest advantage. Here are a few things to keep in mind before your house is photographed.

  • Make it sparkle!
    The camera lens is far more critical than the human eye, allowing viewers to enlarge a photo with the swipe of a finger. And you can be assured that they will do exactly that. Every streak on the baseboards will stand out. Smart sellers won't just clean the house the best they can. They will hire a service to deep clean all of the places they didn't think about. Make sure all windows are cleaned and drapes pulled open to show off both the view and the natural light.

Wood-Fired Pizza - Atlanta, GA - JYB Realty

Even scientists agree that pizza's "holy trinity" of crust, sauce, and cheese makes it a truly satisfying food. So how do you improve on perfection? Our real estate agents agree there's nothing better than Neapolitan-style, wood-fired pizza served at these top restaurants around Atlanta. 

  • Antico Pizza Napoletana - 1093 Hemphill Ave., Atlanta, GA 30318
    Established in 2009, Antico Pizza Napoletana is so good that a neighborhood grew around it. Inspired by the long lines of people waiting to order his sensational wood-fired pizza, founder Giovanni Di Palma developed Little Italia, channeling the spirit of town centers in his native country.  Be sure to try the Sophia, Antico's signature pie, featuring buffalo mozzarella, cipollini onions, roasted mushrooms, and white truffle oil. Hours are 11:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. weekdays, noon - 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon - 9 p.m. Sunday.
