Consider the LOCAL search engine at the link below that also captures MLS listings of real estate and homes for sale in Atlanta. It uses both Metro Atlanta MLS listing services to provide all of the listings available that meet your specific criteria, so you don't miss anything and can act quickly. Set up and save your own personal profile using zip codes 30101 and 30102 to get email notifications of new listings in Acworth.

Want a more specific area of Acworth, say in Cobb County? Why not narrow your search down to the high school cluster? You can click the school tab and search by Allatoona, Kell, North Cobb or Harrison High School. Or search homes for sale in the Paulding County area of Acworth using North Paulding or Paulding County, There's even a choice for new homes for sale, townhomes and more.

Search freely without registration or hassle and unsubscribe at any time. So please search away and let me know if I can help.

If I can't, then all my best for a successful home search!

Typically, builders really want you to use their preferred lender. But, you have the opportunity to use who you like. They may offer more closing costs or other perks for using their preferred lender. They may require that you pre-qualify with the preferred lender to feel confident that you are a qualified buyer.

I suggest speaking with your buyers agent (yes it is important to have a buyers agent representing you even when buying new construction), as they may be able to shed some light on the situation.

Good luck in getting the home you want!

Trulia pulls data from the tax data in Cobb County. If you update the tax digest showing your home has 6 bedrooms and 3 full baths that should correct the data. Trulia and Zillow provides estimates and not actual values, the only one in Georgia that can provide the value of real property is an appraiser. If you wish to update your tax data, be warned that Cobb County will most likely increase your tax bill though. Hope that helps. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore inform yourself well in advance of your search, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate before considering the idea and or before signing any agreement. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

The key is to work with a very experienced lender, that has a track record for cleaning up credit issues. There are lenders out there that will put a plan in place for their clients, to ensure that their loan will go through underwriting and be approved. I work with several lenders who specialize in helping buyers become credit ready. Would you like me to refer you to them?

Please feel free to contact me, I am happy to help.

Kirsten Wellborn answered:
Anything in real estate is negotiable.

With that said, there are some tricks to negotiating with builders. Also, buying a spec home, will typically allow for slightly more negotiation than "custom" building one.

I always recommend that you use a buyer's agent for new home construction. It does not cost you anything, and the subdivision agents ALWAYS work for the builder with his/her best interest at heart.

Please let me know if I can answer further questions, or be of assistance.
