How to Sell a House

Selling a home can be stressful, even with the right resources. While the amount of anxiety involved needn't be at the level often described by some of those TV advertisers (many of whom with their own self-serving objectives), proper guidance will contribute well toward the smooth sale of what may be your single-largest asset, a rare experience for many of us. That is why a strong partnership with those who are committed to your needs is among the highest importance in the safe sale of your home.

The past clients from all over Metro Atlanta with whom I, Solomon Greene, have had the honor to serve appreciated the work done over the years, partnering with them from start-to-finish in the sale of their homes and closing smoothly within their specified time periods so that they could move on to their next chapters in peace.

We attracted the right buyer through collaboration by

  • getting their houses ready to sell for more

  • arriving at the right list price, and

  • promoting it in various places.

I worked with those buyers and their agents to ensure the most reasonable outcome, offering a variety of mortgage options, home inspectors, insurance providers and carefully managing the transaction timelines put forth in the paperwork to bring about a timely settlement that conformed to seller requirements.

"Solomon listed and sold my Metro Atlanta home in 50 days for the highest price in the neighborhood since at least 2012! He was very knowledgeable and diligent in the process. Lastly, I will definitely continue to utilize his expertise in the near future."

Probate Sale

Some of my past clients who were managing through a difficult season had already been approached by local investors offering fast cash for their inherited property. Fortunately, those owners knew or suspected that those offers were well below the real property value. Before engaging with them any further on the sale of real property from the estate, they called me at (770) 271-2156 for a cooperative market analysis and received an objective opinion about what their estate property may have been worth at that time. They then discussed their discovery with the estate attorney and family members on next steps for the property, some choosing to hold while others sold and liquidated the estate. Contact Me


Having represented both buyers and sellers in such transactions, I have resources that help with selling the goods in the property via an estate sale, cleaning the property and preparing it to sell for the highest dollar amount that the market will bear. But unlike with most self-centered, profit-minded investors, my past clients were protected by a commitment to the highest ethical business standards in dealing with the public, the rules and precepts put forth by the Georgia Real Estate Commission.

Short Sale

You decided to sell your home, but the mortgage balances are higher than the property may be worth and you don’t have the funds required to bridge the difference. You may still be able to sell your home for less than the balance owed on the mortgages with some cooperation from your mortgage lenders. Here are a few steps to start things off.

  1. Obtain the mortgage balance payoff from your lenders.

  2. Call (770) 271-2156 or write Solomon for information on local market activity and an estimated selling price.

  3. Gather the requested documents so that the process can begin.

  4. If you are comfortable with what you are hearing, you should plan to get the property on the market right away.

You’ll also grant permission to interact directly with your lenders on your behalf to keep things moving along toward an approval. Please keep communications with the lender open, responding to all letters and phone calls in a timely manner throughout the process. A short sale will adversely affect your credit score temporarily, but you may be able to sell. With your cooperation, we'll find a buyer and get the property sold, protecting your interests as much as possible all along the way. Contact Me
