Now that we've officially entered the second week in March, the buying and selling peak season is kicking off. We have several first time buyers that we are working with and we find it very helpful to provide them with a detailed step-by-step explanation of the home buying process.
Be prepared...there is limited inventory right now, which means multiple offers and more often than not, as a first time buyer you won't get the first place you put an offer on. There are still a fair amount of investors in the market with all cash, so if a starter home/condo comes on the market at a very hot price, it will most likely have a lot of offers to go along with it and some being all cash. Be prepared as a buyer to move quickly and get yourself pre-qualified with a lender before starting your search! Try to pinpoint the areas you want to focus your search on and stick with it. Trust our recommendations as your agents regarding areas to consider. Our goal is that you are not only happy with the home that you purchase, but even happier with the ROI 5 years from now!!
