When we find the right home in a market like we are in today, we might have to make an offer quickly. We want to have everything prepared on that side so that there’s no waiting, as someone might come in and take the home from us.
REXBURG, Idaho (PRWEB) September 26, 2018
Things have changed dramatically in the housing market for buyers since a decade ago. “Fortunately, there are still ways to ensure you find your dream home,” said Realtor Rory Kunz, of Edge Real Estate.
To help buyers navigate today’s market, Kunz lists the following four tips:
No. 1: Talk to a lender. “It is crucial to have your finances in order and talk to a mortgage lender,” stressed Kunz. “When we find the right home in a market like we are in today, we might have to make an offer quickly. We want to have everything prepared on that side so that there’s no waiting, as someone might come in and take the home from us.”
No. 2: Make a well-informed decision. Buying a home is an emotional decision. “You’re going to live in this home and you probably have been dreaming of it for a long time,” added Kunz. “Although it is an emotional decision, you have to take as much emotion out of it that you possibly can so that you can make a well-informed decision when moving forward on a house. Try to be analytical in the process so you know exactly what type of house you are looking for, what you can afford and what you are getting into when finding that house.”
No. 3: Think about it … but not too long. Making a well informed decision means going over the pros an cons. However, do not wait too long before making an offer on a house. “We put homes under contract every day and every hour and the house that might be the one for you might pass you by,” noted Kunz. “So again, analyze it, think about it and be ready to act when the time is right.”
No. 4: Be patient. Once a home is found and the offer made, the process from offer to closing might be belaboring. “We have to do an appraisal and an inspection and your lender is going to want a bunch of documents,” concluded Kunz. “So don’t get overly stressed; just know it’s part of the process.”
