    We love and live the Active Adult lifestyle and have helped hundreds of buyer clients transition into the great NEXT chapter of their life.  Everyone’s situation is unique but typical steps in the process are:

    • Initial consultation- Kathy or Ben will discuss your goals, prices and timing for a potential move. With our 30+ years of experience each, we will put together a game plan with you to make sure that you have the knowledge to make a great decision when the timing is right.
    • Learn about 55+ Communities- Our team has knowledge of over 70 communities that are conducive to the Active Adult lifestyle and will share our knowledge to give you a great overview of those communities that may best fit your needs.
    • Tour Selected Communities- As your Realtor Consultant, we will show you communities, homes, amenities and nearby shopping and medical facilities that fit your criteria.
    • Prioritize Target Communities and Homes- We will help you sort thru your favorite communities and perhaps floorplans. If there is not a home currently on the market that works for you, we’ll put you on an instant notification list to be notified when your perfect home becomes available.
    • Negotiate Contract- We’ll use our years of negotiating experience and knowledge to help you get the best possible deal of your new home.
    • Provide Contract to Close Support- We have great local lenders with a variety of loan programs and competitive rates plus a vetted team of home inspectors, attorneys, movers and handymen to help you make a smooth move into your next home. If you are building, we will attend your design and builder meetings to provide knowledge and expertise and make the building process less stressful for you.

    We’re proud of the services we provide to help those 55 and better and hope you’ll let us be your trusted consultants to guide you as you learn about the Active Adult lifestyle!

    As buyer’s agents in Georgia, our services do not cost you anything; we are paid by either the builder if buying new or seller if buying a resale home.  You are potentially at a huge disadvantage by working with an on-site agent or seller’s agent without your own buyer’s agent working on your behalf.  We are able to advise you on negotiating and are there for you and to protect you if a problem should arise.

    Never.  We have turned down opportunities to work for builders because we want to provide unbiased information to our buyer clients.  You will get the unvarnished truth from us regarding communities and particular homes or homesites to build on.

    No. Builders know that Realtors bring them a significant amount of business that they would not get otherwise and have set aside a marketing budget accordingly.  As a result, builders would never give you a better price on a home by not having an agent represent you.  In fact, our constant presence in Active Adult communities can sometimes result in us knowing about incentives or new lot releases before they are even made public.  And in the resale home market, if you are working directly with the seller’s agent, they are working for the seller, not you.

    Building our website for our clients has required a huge investment of time and effort and is an ongoing process.  We’ve worked hard to get the best information to you on communities, but this is an ongoing process.  The good news is that we are aware of many more Active Adult communities than we have on our site and during our time working together, we’ll make sure that no stone is left unturned and that you have information about all communities that are relevant to your search.  And keep checking back on our site as we are adding new communities all the time.

    We realized several years ago that like us, our client base was aging and starting to look for ways to simplify, perhaps socialize more and enjoy retirement or their last years in the workforce.  As we started to research and learn about 55+ communities, we found that information was scarce and difficult to come by and we decided to become the local experts in this area of real estate.  RedHotAtlantaHomes.com is our effort to be your “One Stop” resource for the Active Adult lifestyle.
