Mistakes Buyers Make in a Seller’s Market
The home buying process moves quickly in a Seller’s Market. With sellers asking top dollar, getting multiple offers on their homes and available inventory shrinking, it’s easy for a home buyer to become frustrated. Here are some common mistakes buyers make in a Seller’s Market:
Not being pre-approved for a mortgage. Mortgage pre-approval is crucial in a seller’s market. It shows sellers that you are serious about purchasing their home.
Waiting too long to make an offer. Be prepared! If you wait too long, you’re likely to lose out.
Not making your best offer. Offering lower than asking price is commonly done, but don’t do it in a Seller’s Market.
Not being prepared for negotiations or a bidding war. Again, be prepared, because negotiations and bidding wars are likely to occur in a Seller’s Market.
Not hiring a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® will offer you advice, save you time, save you stress, and save you money.
