For me, real estate is a personal experience; I believe that true success is only possible when you care about people, their needs and their goals. There is no greater feeling than matching my buyers with their dream home. In our current market, it is often challenging for buyers to compete for a home that fits all of their needs, but there are ways for buyers to find a home that is right for them even during a seller’s market.
If you’re currently looking to purchase a new home, here are a few of my favorite tips to help you find success in your search:
- Work with a reputable lender and agent. There is always uncertainty when it comes to buying or selling, but by surrounding yourself with real estate experts, you’ll be better equipped to navigate the ever-changing market. Having a strong team to support one of life’s biggest transactions can provide comfort and a sense of security to the buyers and their agent, which is the most important step to securing your new home.
- Price is important, but isn’t always the most important factor when making a decision. There are certain things about a property that cannot be overcome or can be difficult to workaround. Before my buyers purchase a home, I go through all the objections with them. Objections can be anything from steep driveways to busy roads to railroads. My main goal is to pair my clients with a home that gets them excited about the next chapter of their lives and will allow them to live in a way that fits their needs.
- Secure your dream home with a higher deposit and handwritten letter. Sometimes, a higher deposit can make all the difference. It shows the seller that the buyer is serious and is willing to go the extra mile to purchase their home. Pairing the deposit or offer with a letter is a great way for the sellers to learn more about the buyer and why they love the home. Relationships are important and when buyers make a connection with the seller, they increase their chance of securing their dream property.
I love partnering with buyers and sellers to help them reach their goals, and I understand the importance of home. My team and I strive to bring ease and confidence to the real estate process every step of the way. If you are currently searching for your dream home, I would love to hear from you!
