Dusty Talbert, marketing manager with Smith Douglas Homes, and Randi Krasnoff, senior mortgage loan consultant with The American Eagle Mortgage Company, join hosts Todd Schnick and Carol Morgan on today’s All About Real Estate edition of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio.

Smith Douglas Homes was founded in 2008 with the goal of cutting out inefficiencies in the construction process to save money, passing those savings on to buyers. Less than eight years later, this company has grown to three divisions with a goal of 700 home sales in 2016!

Buyers will find Smith Douglas communities located throughout metro Atlanta, including at River Park, which is close to downtown Woodstock. A master-planned community with fantastic amenities, Smith Douglas has more than 80 home sites available with prices ranging from the high $100,000s through the high $200,000s at River Park. Buyers northeast of Atlanta can be one of the last three homeowners at Woodward Crossing in Buford, a community that has become the builder’s fastest-selling! Buyers in Hoschton and Alpharetta also have an opportunity to become a Smith Douglas homeowner as the builder gets ready to open its first community in each of those areas. Finally, Dusty was pleased to announce Smith Douglas’ expansion south of Atlanta with new communities in Newnan, Morrow and Hampton.

To help buyers achieve the dream of homeownership around Atlanta, Smith Douglas Homes has partnered with The American Eagle Mortgage Company, which is known for doing whatever it takes to help worthy would-be homeowners find the first home of their dreams. When working with Smith Douglas, Randi and American Eagle Mortgage helps set the expectation about the buying and building process, and sees loans through from start to finish, as the handling of every part of the loan process is done in-house. Randi says American Eagle Mortgage’s specialty is working harder and smarter to get more people into a home with a conventional mortgage.

Smith Douglas is also showing its dedication to first-time home buyers in another unique way. The builder has created a new e-book that allows potential buyers to get information about the mortgage and buying process without having to feel embarrassed or unqualified. The book aims to help potential buyers feel comfortable with the whole process and help them understand they really are eligible to purchase a home.

However, Randi notes that it’s important to remember that she and the Smith Douglas team are there to answer any additional questions that buyers may have, or provide specifics on loan information and what they’re eligible for. Buyers should consider going to the mortgage company first to ensure their finances are in order, figure out what they qualify for and decide what they can truly afford.
