Real Estate Radio Atlanta welcomes to this week’s show Jerome Smith, the number one agent with Keller Williams Realty Signature Partners for 2011 and 20122, Ian Falcone, senior bankruptcy attorney with The Falcone Law Firm, and Cynthia Lucas, a top loan originator with Silverton Mortgage Specialists.
Jerome will let listeners know if it is a buyer’s or seller’s market ad what a buyer should do to prepare to buy a home. For sellers, he will go into whether or not it is a good time to sell, how quickly one can expect a home to sell, and how to get prepared to sell a home. Ian breaks down how bankruptcy can help someone facing foreclosure, the last date to file to prevent a foreclosure and what happens if an owner just walks away from the home. He will explain the difference between a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and outline the benefits to each one. Cynthia will describe a home-ownership preparation plan and explain what people need to do to qualify to buy a home, as well as what down payment assistance options are available. For listeners who have gone through a foreclosure or bankruptcy, Cynthia will discuss how long the borrow needs to wait before buying a new home.
