Competing For A Home In A Sellers Market

Competing For A Home In A Sellers Market

Much of the country continues to face a real estate imbalance with more potential buyers than listing inventory. If you find yourself looking to buy in a hot seller's market, the following tips can help  with the process. 

OFFER YOUR HIGHEST PRICE FIRST - If homes in your market are regularly pulling in the multiple offers, now is not the time to offer a low bid. Starting with your best offer will give you a better chance of securing the house of your dreams. 

PRESENT AN APPEALING OFFER - Waive contingencies, offer a quick closing and avoid requesting minor repairs. Get a mortgage underwritten by a lender before touring homes t show sellers your offer won't fall through. 

TAKE A BREAK - If you're starting to feel overwhelmed, take a week or two off from your search. Regroup, re-evaluate your priorities and start your search again when you are in a better state of mind. 

WORK WITH A QULIFIED AGENT - A real estate professional will understand your local market and can provide the strategies you need to make your offer stand out from the crowd.
