Homes Are Selling Faster–Be Prepared!
In 2013, on average homes sold in 8.5 weeks! This is the shortest time on market since 2005. By comparison, homes were on the market for 26 weeks one year earlier in 2012. Today’s quick sales are largely a reflection of low inventory and high demand. The takeaway here is that if you are in the market to buy, you need to be ready to move. Get pre-approved for a loan, set aside time to search for and to view properties that have potential, and work with your agent. Your agent can help with your search and save you time by narrowing the choices, and is an excellent source for the information you need. If you are a buyer or are considering buying, I can help you! I can connect you to a lender to discuss pre-approval, setup custom searches, show properties, and network with the real estate community to help you find just the right home. Call, text, email, face-to-face–just let me know how I can help!
