4 Tips for Home Buyers

The temperatures are blazing hot this summer and so is the housing market. If you are thinking of searching for a new home this season, note these four tips to help you win the offer:

  • Less Choices in Every Market There’s still low inventory and many buyings looking. Multiple offers and bidding wars continue to be the norm. When shopping for a home, keep this in mind for your budget and be prepared to offer over the asking price for the home you really want. 
  • Be Flexible and Patient You have to allow yourself some time to find a home. It could take a couple of months when you are in a tight market. You may miss out on a few offers before winning a deal. 
  • Go All In When you make an offer on a home, make it your best offer. A seller may have multiple offers and not come back to you with a counteroffer. 
  • Get Full Preapproval Before shopping for a home, if you are getting financing, make sure you submit all your documents that a lender asks for. By doing so,  you can go through the underwriting process for a full preapproval letter. Being fully preapproved, you can present your strongest offer to a seller.
