We have all heard it ...and the statistics don't lie. Spring is the time to sell. Most sellers put their home on the market in April, May, and June.
What can I do to be best prepared when buying a home?
First, speak with a lender. You need to know what you qualify for or if you need to take any steps to get you in the best financial situation possible to buy a home. We have great lenders that work hard (meaning, they don't keep regular office hours!) and specialize in many types of loans. We think you should speak to at least 2-3 lenders to ensure you are shopping for the loan that fits you best. Here is a list of lenders we enjoy working with.
What Does That Mean for you as a Buyer?
After speaking with a lender and knowing what you are qualified for money wise to buy, it is time to contact us. We are going to help you every step of the way. We will search for homes that fit your needs and discuss a plan. When you are ready to physically go look at homes...you should be ready to buy. We have taken buyers out to look, they may wait a day or two, then they tell us they have chosen "the one", but that house already has an offer on it. It stinks, but it happens. There are of course exceptions, but this market is hot!
As a Seller What Can I Do to Sell?
As a seller, having your home looking its best is key for a quick sale. Click here for ways to spruce up your home for spring.
One of the best reasons to use a Realtor is to receive important information on what price you should sell for. This is key to selling. If your home is priced right based off of more than just the comps, your home can sell quickly.
Spring is obviously a perfect season so sellers are ready to sell. If you are ready to sell or buy, give us a call and we can discuss options to best suit your needs.
