Let's Trade Places!



We make the move to a brand new Ball Home as easy as possibly by taking your current home in trade for a new construction home. Trading a home eliminates the hassles and expense of showings, advertising, and contract negotiations, as well as the uncertainty of finding a buyer at the right price.
How does the trade process work?

To initiate a trade, a Milestone Realty Consultants agent will assess your current property’s market value condition and check the eligibility standards. If your home is determined to be eligible for a trade, Ball Homes will make an offer for the property. If you agree with the offer, a trade contract will be completed. What’s great about this offer is that it functions as a back-up offer, which leaves you free to consider other offers for a period of time, so long as that does not delay the closing on your new Ball home.
Eligibility Requirements

Homes in Fayette County must have an estimated market value of $180,000 or less to be eligible for trade consideration. We also consider trades of properties in Georgetown, Nicholasville, and Versailles, with an estimated market value of $150,000 or less. Your new Ball home being purchased must also meet certain price criteria, assuring that the price of your new home is a minimum of $50,000 more than the traded property. Contact a Ball Homes Specialist for more information on eligibility requirements.
It’s all about convenience!

Moving is stressful enough without adding a hurried timeline into the mix! We make the moving process as easy a transition as possible! The closing on your traded home and your new home take place at the same time, which will allow you to stay in your current home until your new home is ready to move in. You won’t have to worry about moving twice or trying to negotiate occupancy with the purchasers of your current home.
At Ball Homes, we strive to make every part of the home buying process as easy and as stress-free as we can. To see if your current home is eligible for trade for a new Ball home, contact a Ball Homes specialist today!

Realtor Profile: Greg Back

Ball Homes is proud to have a group of Realtors who specialize in making the Ball Homes experience one that is smooth and worry-free. Each month, we will be highlighting one of our top real estate agents in the Lexington, Louisville, or Knoxville areas; recognizing the hard work they do for our company and the people we serve.
 
Realtor Greg Back was the top producing real estate agent for the Lexington area for November 2012. Greg is a Ball Homes Specialist for the Lexington area and has extensive experience with new construction and existing residential properties. We were able to talk to Greg about his successes in his real estate career as well as other areas in his life.
 
Having a 26 year track record, Greg attributes much of his success to listening to his client’s needs and wants, then formulating a plan to help them achieve their goals. He feels that the more you know, the better connection you have with your client and the trust grows from there. It is a nuts-and-bolts formula that has served him well.   He has grown his network from this basic concept and has become known locally as “the Hard Working Nice Guy”. Helping his clients achieve their goals is paramount to Greg. “Their success is my success.”   He also says that he continually strives to improve and stay on top of the cutting edge with trending issues and topics through training classes offered by LBAR (Lexington Bluegrass Association of Realtors)
 
Goals are something that Greg uses, not only for his clients, but also himself. “I start each year with a road map and results plan. I review them every two weeks to make sure I’m on-course. If I need to make changes or revisions, I can do that easily because I know what I’m working toward.” He also gives credit for his successes to his wife, Deborah. She is also a local Realtor with Milestone Realty Consultants. “My wife and I talk a lot about how we can better serve our clients by working smarter and using time management. We collaborate on many issues to better serve our clients, but as with most married couples, we also edit each other. Deborah is a little more creative with her ‘why not?’ mindset and I have a little more ‘if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it’ mentality. I think other married couples can relate, especially our clients!”

 
Motivation is something that is hard to maintain in the real estate business, but Greg has a secret for keeping his sights high while the market is still recovering. “I’ve always played sports, so I definitely like to win, but I’ve come to realize that it’s okay to be #2 every once in a while. I try to find people that are very good at what they do and I try to shadow them. I want to be the best I can be, so I try to ‘chase the rabbits’ and emulate the skills and procedures that work best.”
 
Greg is a wonderful asset and we’re glad to have him on the Ball Homes team. If you’d like to talk to Greg, you can contact him at Milestone Realty Consultants.
