Spring is the busiest time of year for new home purchases, but that doesn’t mean you can’t snag the perfect place. Use the following tips to help ensure your springtime home buying success...
1. Trust Your Gut
With more buyers competing for a limited number of homes, indecision can mean losing out on a great house. If you find the right property it’s best to make an offer as soon as you can. Before you can make a serious offer though, it's a good idea to be pre-approved for a home loan. We can help you with this step >>> www.sffmortgage.com/pre-approval
2. Borrow Locally
Sellers generally give preference to buyers with a pre-approval letter from a locally trusted institution, as opposed to an online or out-of-area lender.
3. Work with a Neighborhood Expert
Real estate is all about knowing the territory, and a realtor who is used to helping buyers in your desired area and has good relationships with other local professionals can give you a major step up. We'd be happy to refer you to some of Colorado's top real estate agents, just give us a call for more information >>> (303) 740-8300
4. Pay What You Can
It’s possible that you could get a better deal than the listing price for a home, but too much haggling can be risky when there are likely multiple interested parties. Starting with the strongest offer you can afford will reduce your chances of losing out.
5. Sweeten the Deal
There’s more to negotiation than just dollar amounts. Little things like flexibility on closing date can help make your offer stand out and increase the likelihood of a deal.
With the right guidance, now is the perfect time to start fresh with a new home.
