Our local real estate market is currently experiencing low inventory in certain price ranges and neighborhoods, requiring buyers to make quick decisions with less choices. This can be a very stressful situation, especially when in multiple offer situations!

inaccurate. Our local team is best resource in our

2.Commit to being on call and prepared for every
showing. Have your pre-approval letter and proof of
funds ready at a moment’s notice. Let us know if need some recommendations for the best lender for your situation.
3.Big changes can reflect negatively on your financial stability during a real estate transaction. A new job or marital status should wait until after closing if possible (but it’s not necessarily a deal -killer with the right lender!). Major purchases can jeopardize your financing, so save that new furniture and appliances for after your deal is done!
4.Cast a wide net as you search and don’t wait to hook the perfect house –
there is no such thing. We can help you figure out the must-haves! If your choices are limited, consider homes outside prime locations and we can help you find solutions to potential obstacles.
5.As you approach an agreement, reconsider the “ifs.” Especially in a multiple offer situation. Contingencies can make sellers inclined to consider other offers with fewer hurdles. Also, be wise
and aggressive in your negotiating. A seller’s market is no time to bring
in super low offers.
