The items listed above are a few of the many factors current

mortgage products, closing cost, rates, and terms that work to the advantage of
that buyer in that environment.
The Wells Team has a good relationship with many lenders in
the Atlanta area. As part of our customer service we require our buyers to sit
down with the lender of their choosing and work together to put in place a
comprehensive financial plan.
The result: A successful buyer experience!
