If you’ve been searching for a new home (even just browsing), you’ve probably noticed how quickly the status changes from Active to Pending. Buying a home in a hot market can be really stressful! Times like these are the best ones to work with a realtor and here’s why.
Realtors are tied into the local network and immediately know when new inventory hits the market. They can keep an eye out for you. This way, you’ll get notified immediately and can schedule a showing to see if you’re interested. The sooner you view a new listing, the quicker you can submit your offer.
If you’re working with a realtor, they won’t waste your time with listings you just aren’t interested in. They will act as your filter and only pass on those properties that fit your criteria.
Doing the Deal
If you’ve got a good agent, they can advise you on the best offer to submit. They will know your situation and what you’re comfortable paying. They can also gauge the house you’re bidding on and will know if there are other offers coming in. This will help you put your best foot (offer) forward.
Once your offer gets accepted there are other items that need to be navigated. A seasoned real estate agent will be able to explain everything that is happening and ensure you don’t miss any of the deadlines. Even if there are delays.
