This spring’s real estate market is super competitive. It’s not unusual for a home to get offers the day it comes on the market or even before. Buyers wanting to be in their new home by mid-June need to have accepted contracts in their hands now.
7 steps to prepare for the spring market and beat the competition:
Don’t get discouraged! Not every offer will be in “multiple offers” competing with lots of buyers. And not every seller is willing to negotiate especially when the home just on the market. Don’t get discouraged and try not to get emotional. Realtors® know it’s hard to keep an optimistic view when you’re on the losing end of a couple of offers.
There is a house out there, somewhere waiting for you. Being prepared before you start house hunting doesn’t guarantee instant success but it gives you running start on the competition.
