The market continues to improve. I don’t need data to know this. The last month’s offers have left me with only one offer that was not part of a multiple offer deal. Listing agents have reported back to me on a few of these and stated that we were one of 8 other offers on the same property.
People are buying and what they have to select from is limited and when a nice one comes around, it is likely gone before the day is out unless they are holding out for the best offer via multiple offers.
As a buyer you will find you will make an offer only to have your agent get back to you asking for your highest and best. They need this as you are part of a multiple offer deal and the seller wants to make the most money and the buyer has to decide just how much they really want the property. Often times someone else has a bit more money to spend, has a good qualification letter or is totally preapproved.
When you are ready to buy a home I highly suggest being pre approved and keep this letter updated so that it is always a good letter. Once you have your letter in hand you are ready to talk to your licensed real estate expert. We will help you to find the home that fits your budget and location criteria. Choose an agent who will ask what you need and then will listen and show you what you really wish to see. Use free MLS search sites like mine 🙂 to search on your own and then go see it for yourself.
Are you ready to make that move? Let’s talk!
