When will the value of my home be changed?

Answer
I see this is an old question and hope your home has already sold for well above market value.  A licensed Realtor familiar within your market is always the best first step when ready to list.  Although I subscribe to Zillow and support many of its features the estimates will show huge swings in accuracy.  A comparative market analysis, local knowledge, and a ready & willing buyer will help determine value in today's market.

First Time home buyer - Where to start?

Answer
Make the first step and speak with a lender regarding pre-approval.  You might request they not pull credit scores until you are ready to move forward. 730 is a good score but multiple pulls wont help.

Is this the best time to buy a home ?

Response
Is this the best time…. No time better for purchasing a home most would consider out of their price range two years ago. In Atlanta suburbs the market has come back to the point of multiple offers on many foreclosure properties. My buyers understand this is a worst case scenario since they are now in a blind auction. The real question is can you afford to sit on the sidelines any longer? Find a couple homes that meet your requirements and start taking advantage of the "buyers market", it wont last forever.
