Homebuyers in a tough market!

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! If you’re a buyer looking for a home or possibly thinking of purchasing a home soon, than this is a post for you! Today’s real estate market is in favor of the sellers. Inventory is low and buyers have to be aggressive. Use these few tips to make sure house shopping is a success for you! 

Pre-Approval – The first step for you is to get pre-approved. Reach out to a local real estate expert and they will help you get in contact with a local lender that is experienced and also knows the importance of being aggressive in todays market. 

Love Letter – This may sound like a crazy idea, but I’ve seen it work! Write a letter to the sellers explaining why you love their home and your goals for the property (raising a family, remodeling, etc.) 

Be flexible – Understand right now that you’re not going to get everything you want. Be flexible, give and take and listen to what your real estate professional is telling you. 

Not so popular listings – Consider a listing that has been on the market a while or may not be as attractive as a new listing. Often if you can find a property that has been on the market a while, it will help keep you out of bidding wars and you may end up getting a better deal in the long run. 

I hope you find these tips helpful! As always, please contact Rountree Realty for all of your Marion and Putnam County real estate needs! (352) 577-9171 or Info@Search352Homes.com
