Atlanta’s Best New Homes Show recently welcomed Kelly Allison with New American Funding and Samantha with Piedmont Residential. The two women joined this Mortgage Minute segment, sponsored by New American Funding, to discuss several safety measures taken to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and how to keep potential homebuyers safe. The group also discusses preapprovals on today’s segment.
“We are following all CDC guidelines on regular cleanings and additional cleanings throughout the week, plus their guidelines for social distancing,” said Samantha. “The safety of our clients, agents and staff is very important to us, so we are making sure to follow all of their protocols.”
Additional safety measures are being provided by Piedmont Residential, including drive-through closings via its attorney’s office and virtual open houses. Any potential new homeowners are now able to schedule a virtual tour with one of Piedmont Residential’s trusted agents. This allows for everyone to practice social distancing while also searching for the perfect new home.
One way Kelly and Samantha suggest continuing the home buying process seamlessly through the current environment is to get preapproved. By getting preapproved, buyers know exactly how much they are able to spend and help move the entire home buying process along. At New American Funding, this pre-approval process looks a little different.
“At New American Funding, we involve the underwriter,” said Kelly. “The underwriter provides a full approval on the loan so our customers are empowered and feel very comfortable. When they go out to a community, they know how much they can afford and can go ahead and make that offer. It also helps to make the loan process go a lot smoother.
