Winter Baserva, Atlanta’s Real Estate Expert is the Only Agent to Be Featured On HGTV’s House Hunters Atlanta…Twice!

Shooting my first episode on HGTV’s House Hunters in 2010, “Pampered Poochwas such an amazing experience. My clients Kelly & Brian had set out to find their perfect Brookhaven Home and we were able to capture all of the good, bad and ugly of the home buying experience. It truly bonded us along the way as well. Here is a little scene from my first episode, Pampered Pooch:

 

    

If you aren’t familiar with “House Hunters” the popular show, which has an average of five million viewers per episode, takes viewers behind the scenes of the emotional experience of finding and purchasing a new home.

My most recent episode: Engaged Couple Buys First Home in Atlanta aired on Sept. 25, 2011 and all I can say was it was a hilarious time filled with lots of funny moments…I think HGTV’s description says it all:

Tyler and Sherry are getting married in a few months and want to buy their first home in Atlanta, Georgia. But, with Sherry picking apart every cosmetic detail in the homes they see, and Tyler rating the quality of each room on a scale of 1 to 5, their realtor, Winter Baserva, is being put to the test. Can she find a place that meets their high standards?

And, here is a sneak peak of the second episode

I felt so honored and humbled to be choosen to do another Atlanta episode. This officially makes me the only Atlanta Real Estate Agent to be featured on the show twice.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      

 

But, aside from the glitz and glamour of being on TV, there is actually A LOT more than meets the eye….

For one, Atlanta is receiving BIG International Media attention for the business Mecca that it is. Being home to some of the Nations TOP global corporations like Delta, Coca-Cola, Center for Disease Control and NCR to all of the growth projections for the city, its truly rewarding to see Atlanta being highlighted on the map.

In addition to Pietown Productions, lots of other production companies are bringing their business, just see how much Atlanta is on the MAP in terms of movie making and that is all helping to fuel our local enconomy.

But above all else, this popularity, the increasing number of home sales and the influx of business is hopefully helping home owners understand that the economy is picking up, things are NOT that bad and we will ALL get through this.

I can’t speak for other agents, but I can tell you that according to the National Association of Realtors your average agent sells 6 homes a year, and to date my team, Seasons Realty Group and I have sold over 60 homes. That is 10 times your average agent….How, you ask??

We’ll aside from working 28 hour days everyday, there are still people buying and selling homes and we provide them with the utmost service and advice to help them get into their home or get it sold quick ….So sellers be happy, things are turning around …buyers enjoy this wonderful opportunity you have at your hands, it won’t be here forever…..

If you don’t get a chance to watch the second episode, here are a few clips:

The episode will continue to air throughout the year, so check HGTV for the upcoming schedule. And, if you would like to start your own house hunt with me and possibly be on my next episode, please give me a call at 678-463-3173.

Roswell Homes For Sale ~ Some of Atlanta’s BEST Real Estate…But Why???

Furthermore, you can get a WHOLE lot of house  for the dollar too. And, with school out and buyers on the prowl, its easy to see why Roswell is one of the area’s HOTTEST real estate markets…But, Why???

The reason so many flock to this area is its plethora of Roswell Parks and Recreation such as Roswell Park, and the Chattahoochee Nature Center, Roswell Restaurants like Sugo, and Aqua Blue, STELLAR schools, and QUALITY CONSTRUCTION  for less than what you would expect to pay.

How to SELL During the Holidays! Top 10 Reasons to Sell Your Atlanta Home Now!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:24 pm by winterbaserva

How to SELL During the Holidays! The Top 10 Reasons to Sell Your Atlanta Home Now!

Many sellers have a misconception that the “Winter” months equals a NO SALE season. Allow me to debunk this common myth out there. While showings can be distressing during a time when there is family over or on a Sunday while you’re putting up a tree, there are substantial reasons why end of the year is one of the BEST times for sellers to sell their Atlanta Home. 

•1)      Low, Low Inventory-During the holidays, many sellers take their homes off the market, which means there are LESS homes available to prospective buyers. Low inventory increases the chance a seller can sell quickly and for more money.

•2)      More Serious Buyer Pool-If you are having showings on Christmas Day, or any of the weeks leading up to it, you can rest assured that these are not the “looky lous”. These are serious buyers who NEED to buy, so having your home on the market during this time means we are dealing with a SERIOUS buyer pool.

•3)      Relocation, Relocation, Relocation-Did you know Atlanta is home to the TOP 50 Global Corporations like Coca-Cola Company, NCR, Delta, Equifax, UPS and more?? These companies tend to staff their corporations right before the end of the year to get in their “calendar budgets” for the next year. Keeping your home on the market during this time means that you have a better chance of snagging up a high-powered executive.

•4)      Many agents take time off during the holidays-so hire one who you know will be in town and can help filter all the calls and continue to market the home.

•5)      Tax Season-Some buyers NEED to buy before the end of the year due to the tax benefits. Don’t deny them the right to capitalize on this pivotal time.

•6)      Buyers Have the TIME-And, time is money. Buyers have more time to look during the holidays outside of work hours, so keep your home on the market to ensure every possible buyer is able to see your home.

•7)    Interest Rates-Interest rates are still at an all time low, so even more incentives for buyers to buy.

•8)      Competition-Today, your home is based on the valuation of your current competition, which is less due to low inventories. When the market picks back up in the Spring, sellers will be “competing” with each other to get theirs sold quicker. While we don’t have a crystal ball, we do know what we are working with RIGHT NOW.

•9)      Because I Said So-In my six years as a real estate agent, November and December marked my BEST months of the year. My proven track record confirms all my previous reasons.

•10)   Don’t Fail-You only FAIL if you fail to try. Test my theory and see the results for yourself.

 According to the National Association of Realtors, the average agent sells 8 homes a year. YES, 8 HOMES A YEAR. In a time of anxiety and hardship for many agents, I have sold 58 homes of which 8 were sold in the month of November 2010 alone.

 If you’re looking for an Atlanta real estate agent who WILL be in town for the holidays and has a proven track record of producing MASSIVE results and getting sellers TOP DOLLAR for their homes, call Winter Baserva at 678-463-3173. But, don’t take my word for it, just see LIVE testimonials here.

Roswell Homes Have a Way of Melting Your Heart!

Roswell Homes Have a Way of Melting Your Heart!

What is it about homes in Roswell, GA that make them so special? For one, Roswell is perfectly situated off of GA-400 about 7 miles north of Sandy Springs making it a very convenient and highly-desired location.

Furthermore, you can get a WHOLE lot of house for your dollar too. I recently just sold this stunning Roswell home for $329,900 in TWO DAYS!!

I also had three back up offers ready to go on it as well. The reason so many flock to this area is its plethora of Roswell Parks and Recreation, Roswell Restaurants, STELLAR schools and QUALITY CONSTRUCTION for less than what you would expect to pay.

I may be a little biased because I was raised in Roswell off of Holcomb Bridge Rd. in Martin’s Landing. When I was a kid, I loved having all my friends in my neighborhood. I went to Mountain Park Elementary when I used to live in Brookfield West and then went to Holcomb Bridge Middle followed by Chattahoochee High School. To say I know and love the area is an understatement.

I’ve carried that passion into my Roswell real estate business by helping Roswell home owners sell their homes QUICKLY and for TOP DOLLAR, as well as helping Roswell home buyers find their PERFECT home.

The last home I sold in Roswell was to an AMAZING couple who was buying up into the Huntington Estates or Grand Veridian neighborhoods. They just KNEW the neighborhoods they wanted to live. You will see this with many people who are just die-hard Roswell lovers.

They hired me to sell their home first and when I asked them why they chose me, they said that “searched for the agent who had done the most business and Roswell real estate and out of all the agents, I was that one.” I was humbled in their statement and can say that I have thoroughly enjoyed working with other Roswell realtors and would like to acknowledge them for their work.

So, if its not for the location, schools, shopping restaurants and social atmosphere, then it HAS to be Roswell’s great people who make this community one of the BEST in Atlanta.

best-frontShallowford Falls Elementary Brings More Than Just Great Schooling!!!

Shallowford Falls Elementaryis known for its stellar curriculum, top-notch teachers and perfect location. In 2007, Shallowford Falls was named one out of three Georgia Schools of Excellence by the Georgia Department of Education and parents have rated the schools as on of the best public elementary schools in the country.

The current home inventory in that school district right now is low and when homes do become available, they are quickly snatched up!

The reasons for this ongoing trend are endless:

  • Top-rated Schools
  • Quality Construction
  • Stable Neighborhoods Free from the Fear of Foreclosures

  • Simpson Middle School & Lassiter High School
  • And, the list goes on and on….

This Pottery Barn Perfect, GORGEOUS 3-side, brick Roswell home is perfectly-situated overlooking the treetops in a cul-de-sac of the highly-desired Hedgerow IV.

With TONS of upgrades to this posh abode, you’ll enjoy a completely renovated kitchen with granite counter tops, mocha-stained ceiling-to-floor cabinets, tile back splash, stainless steel appliances and a LARGE pantry.
