A B C's of buying in our market today
A B C’s of Buying a Home Today
In all my years this is the strongest sellers market I have ever seen. What does this mean to buyers - You have to be ready to move quickly. Good Homes are going under contract in just a few days oftentimes with multiple offers. So here is my A B C’s of buying a home today.
Approved. You must get approved for a home loan now. Offers with approval letters are far more able to be accepted. Even if you are a cash buyer get us your proof of funds so we can present that with your offer. Even if you are months away we have several lenders we trust who can get you approved so when the time comes you are ready. Also, you will know what your payments will be.
Be Looking. We can set you up so that the newest listing gets to you as soon as they are listed. This market will not wait for you - you (with our help) have to be looking everyday for the home you want, in the area you want, with the amenities you want and in the price range you need.
Contract Now. If a home you want shows up you have to do a contract as soon as possible. When a listing agent gets offers for a home they let the agents know they usually have 12 hours to get them the last and best offer. You must make an offer as soon as you find the home you are looking for.
Many times homes are selling for more than list price. Remember this. At 3% interest $10,000 higher price is only $42 a month. Don’t lose the home you love over a few Thousand Dollars.
