Surviving a seller’s market

Surviving a seller’s market, the buyer’s preparedness kit.

  • Rely on your REALTOR® for information.
    Online information can be out of date, your REALTOR® is your best resource in a fast moving market!
  • Waiting for the perfect home?
    There is no such thing.
  • Commit to being on call.
    New listings can sell in one day.  Make sure you are as available as possible.
  • Believing what you see on home shows?
    It’s never that perfect.
  • Come prepared.
    Get pre-qualified and come prepared with a pre-approval letter and proof of funds from your bank.
  • Planning to make major purchases?
    This can change your credit and blow your financing.
  • Ditch the “if’s”
    Limit your contingencies as much as you can.
  • Are you making major life changes?
    New jobs or changing marital status can be good things, but no in this case.
  • Negotiate wisely.
    A seller’s market is not the time to bring in low offers.
  • You shouldn’t settle on something you will regret.
    You have to act fast in a seller’s market, but when you know something isn’t right for you, listen to yourself.
