Yes IT’S a good time to buy a home

Home are sold in all markets. Long term ownership of homes has always been financially beneficial. The current seller’s market is changing with sellers no longer receiving multiple offers and with terms that most buyers found challenging. The rates for home loans are still good. If you feel comfortable about your current finances and want to own a home, for the first time in years the terms and conditions are favoring buyers.  Use the changing market to your advantage for owning a home.

Good homes sell quickly, you NEED TO BE SAVVY

Savvy buyers are winning the home they want and at the right price. It starts with a hyper focused plan with an agent that knows the market where you want to live.  I believe because of the improving market  you can buy the house you want.  I also believe the online estimates are questionable and my local knowledge of home values can help you not overpay for the house you want.  My experience as a hyper local expert is to help buyers determine the value of not only the home but the neighborhood they want to live in.  When there is a candidate house from the custom search we’ve created, make sure you see the home the first weekend of I can do a virtual tour (Facetime/Zoom/Google Meet/Skype/WhatsApp). Currently I’m not seeing seller’s discounting off the list price the first weekend on market but there is no reason to overbid or overpay to win the house.  Making a fair offer negotiated with terms that work for both seller and buyers can win the home you want and my goal for every buyer I work with. 
 

Get Experience that matters

I spend almost half my time buying homes and know how it works to make an offers appealing to the seller especially in this changing market.  Even in a market that is changing, sellers have more motivation than just the price to sell. Understanding the market for seller’s and understanding seller’s motivations and needs for you to be in the running to get the home you want is based on over 18 years of home buying.

Let’s Connect and Discuss How I Can Help

  • Let’s discuss the house you want and your budget.  Using a loan to buy a home? Let’s talk to your lender about your financing. Need a lender. I can recommend several great local lending experts  if you need a home loan to buy a home.  

  • Together we will understand your wants and need for home— Need to move for a job? Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby? Need to upgrade or downsize? At this stage in the process, I’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re most likely to be excited about as soon as they are listed/for sale. You then can let me know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can take the next step and schedule a viewing.  

  • Local real estate agents are moving quickly to provide online and virtual platforms so buyers can better view homes. Now most online listings are providing virtual tours, 3D walkthroughs, picture galleries, virtual open houses, seller videos, etc. in addition to the usual property details and descriptions and a few pictures.

    Once you find a home you want to view in-person or virtually. Contact me and we will get it scheduled.

  • Good homes sell quickly but there are fewer buyers right now. When we find your dream home you want to buy, we still need to make your offer more appealing to the seller than other offers they may receive. As I mentioned before there is more than price but often terms that make your offer stand out. My goal is to “sell” you and the offer you made to purchase as the best buyer to the seller and listing agent.  

  • Once the offer has been accepted. The home is pending.  Here are some but all of the next steps to buy the home.  We need to get Seller disclosures, any reports and disclosures to complete the purchase, perform any buyer’s investigations, complete the financing, etc.  

    1. We will open escrow and title online. Your deposit can be dropped off in-person, mailed or couriered to the title company.
    2. We will complete any documents for the purchase online or in person.
    3. Any inspections on the property are allowed with the only restriction being maks in the home while on the property.
    4. We are seeing that most home purchases are being completed within the typical 30 days time frame after an offer is accepted.
  • Once all the contractual contingencies are met we will be able to complete the sale of the house. This is called the “Close of Escrow.” You will be signing documents to take ownership of the home according to the purchase agreement.

    Escrow companies are providing a safe process for the signing of all document related to completing the purchase. These documents that can be electronically signed will be done so. Any documents requiring an in-person signature will de done using safe practices at the title company. There are mobile notaries that can also provide signing services.
