We’re coming to the end of the summer for 2017. As a Realtor® and Real Estate Broker in the Raleigh, NC area, I have recently been a part of one of the most interesting market in recent years. Buyers are out in force and there are not enough properties on the market to meet the demand. Some properties, depending on the area and condition, are selling for above asking price. Loan programs are ever changing to meet the demand for new buyers and the previous credit issues are leveling out for all involved. The interest rate is steady for the moment and still quite affordable. In most cases, lenders also have a variety of options available to take care of buyers, whether they are first time purchasers or not. The term, first time home buyer, can also be confusing since its definition is not as straight forward as you may think and can apply to you even if you have bought a home before. All in all, we are fighting to keep enough homes on the market to match the demand and it can be a win-win situation for both buyers and sellers.
My question to you is, “What are you waiting for before you Buy or Sell?”
Buyers: Are you waiting for interest rates to change? Are you waiting for more homes to be available? Do you have a lower credit score and think you will not qualify for a loan?
Sellers: Are you waiting for your home to reach its greatest value? Are you waiting for more buyers to come out? Are you waiting for more homes to become available?
My answer to you is to ASK ME! That is what I am here for. I make sure that I have the answers you need and surround myself with those who know about the various niches that relate to the real estate world. I’m not here to push you into action. I’m here to answer those questions so you can know whether this is the best time for you. Everyone, whether they fall into the category of buyer or seller, is at a different place. You are all individuals with different needs and require a contact with the specific knowledge to guide you. That is where I come in. I constantly have my finger on the pulse of what is going on in my industry.
Buyers: If you have questions about interest rates, where you stand with your credit and potential loans or if you need credit repair, I can put you in touch with lenders that I trust to answer those questions fully and honestly. These lenders are people that I have worked with in the past and have proven their worth to me and my clients. I will not put you in touch with someone who I would not use myself. The same goes for any vendors (attorneys/ inspectors/ handymen/ etc.) that I use. They are in my trusted circle as well. If you have someone you already use and trust, please alert me! I am always looking for good people for my trusted circle and my clients. As a Buyer, my services are FREE TO YOU!
Sellers: If you have questions about your homes value and the history trends that are following your property, again, I am here to answer that. Do you feel that a certain time of year is better to sell your home? I can answer that as well. The answers may surprise you… If you’re waiting for more homes to become available (looking to buy AFTER selling), putting yours on the market may be just what is needed to show other sellers the same thing. I understand the importance of staging, photography and marketing your home to get it sold for the most amount of money in the least amount of time. As a Seller, my fee is NEGOTIABLE!
