Setting Yourself Up for Success in Today's Market
These three tips will set you up for success in our market.
Whether you’re planning to buy or sell, here are a few tips to set yourself up for success in today’s real estate market:
1. Make a plan. Let’s form a plan that accommodates your current situation. You can achieve this by working closely in conjunction with your trusted real estate advisor.
2. Get your financing in order. This can also be accomplished by working with a lender; if you don’t have one selected, now is the time to shop rates and gain a deep understanding of your purchasing power. For sellers, this is when you can sit down with your real estate advisor and compare notes on your net sheet, which will show your expected net proceeds and better prepare you to meet with a lender.
3. Move quickly. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, you need to be ready to act quickly in this market. Sellers need to be prepared to show their homes at a moment’s notice, so the inside of the house needs to be in show-ready condition while it’s on the market. For buyers, once you have your pre-approval letter, now is the time to have a custom home search created by your real estate advisor so that you can visit a property when it becomes available and make an offer as quickly as possible.
