Sandy Springs Homes: Buying, Living, and Selling in the Neighborhood
Buyers find Sandy Springs homes desirable for a number of reasons. The city, founded in 2005, is a large and active area in northern Fulton County. By being independent, residents have greater control over local expenditures, and they have used this position to create a vibrant community that's still within reach of Atlanta.
Sandy Springs is just north of the city and west of Dunwoody and Brookhaven. It benefits from a several corporate headquarters, a high per capita income, and great local amenities. City leaders have already established plans to make the community even more desirable with new retail, recreational, and cultural facilities.

Selling Sandy Springs Homes
Bill Ames and Ames Realty Group have years of experience selling homes in Sandy Springs. The general popularity of the area means that listings often generate a lot of interest. However, it's important to use good strategy in preparing, pricing, and marketing your property.
The range of home prices—from moderate to millions—means that a listing may attract both high-end buyers and those who want to establish a start in the area. Bill generally advises clients to price Sandy Springs homes in a way that moves them from listing to sale as quickly as possible. He works with clients to find the highest price that still achieves this goal.
Together, you will conduct a walk-through of your property to identify ways that you can enhance its value, earning at least a dollar-for-dollar return. Bill uses his experience as well as Atlanta real estate tools and software to conduct a historical analysis, evaluating your home against comparable properties that have sold. Once the home is ready, Bill will work with you to list the property for a price that gets the greatest value possible.
