You’ve heard the rumors; it’s a “Seller’s Market.” Well, if you are actively searching for a new home, you know it’s true.

The low inventory of homes for sale has made things difficult for buyers. There just aren’t many homes for sale out there and when a nice listing does come to market, it’s met with multiple offers…..often with offer prices over asking.

If you’re a buyer in this market, you might feel overwhelmed but remember, with a solid strategy, you can still find your dream home, even when inventory is low.

The highest offer price in the world is worthless if the transaction doesn’t close. That’s why having a great team on your side is ideal.

Meet ours! HERE is a link to our team bios, where you can read all about our owners and agents!

Here are a few tips for buyers looking in a tight market:

• Talk to a lender before you shop so you’re prepared

• Be prepared to pull the trigger

• Write a competitive offer

• Keep contingencies to a minimum

• Write a clean offer; Make it easy for the sellers to just say yes!

When inventory is low, it’s easy to feel like the best homes are already gone, but by working with your agent, you can put yourself in the best position to have your offer accepted.

Call our team today so we can help you get into YOUR dream home (yes, even in this market!) 503-502-3330.
