Real Estate Radio Atlanta is pleased to welcome Expert Contributor and Keller Williams Signature Partner Melissa Krudwig, “The Bear of Real Estate”, back to the show. She is joined by Angie Chavez, also with the Think Melissa Team, Randy McMullin, founder of AmStar Mortgage Network, and Lloyd Pro Group’s Karen Brown.
This week, Melissa and Angie discuss new construction in the metro Atlanta market. They discuss the importance of a buyer having their own representation, the different motivations the onsite agent and onsite lenders may have, and how homeowners can make sure they are working with a reputable builder. Randy shares the pros and cons of using in-house lenders, and explains when borrowers should start contacting lenders. Karen explains why new construction can be less expensive to insure, and outlines why an umbrella policy is so important.
