Tips for Buyers
CHOOSING A REALTOR
It’s important that you choose an experienced Realtor who is there for you. He / She should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.
HOT, NORMAL & COLD MARKETS
This is an extremely competitive market, one that is advantageous to the seller. Typically, during a hot market, multiple offers will be made on each home and more often than not, homes will sell for more than the asking price. It can be easy to get caught up in the bid for a home, but if you are prepared, it is easier to remain focused on your housing needs and price range.
During a normal market, the chances to negotiate are higher than in a hot market. As a buyer, you can expect to make offers at lower than the asking price and negotiate a price at least somewhat less than what the sellers are asking.
In a cold market, houses may be listed for more than a year and the prices of houses listed may drop considerably. This market is advantageous to the buyer. Keep in mind that even though this market is a great time for buyers, you do not want to lose your dream home
by being unrealistic. Your goal is to get your dream home at the best possible price.
IMPORTANCE OF INSPECTION
As a buyer, you are entitled to know exactly what you are getting.
Don’t take for granted what you see and what the seller or the listing agent tells you. An inspection is an opportunity to have an expert look closely at the property you are considering purchasing and getting both an oral and written opinion as to its condition.
