I’m sharing the three basic things buyers need to do to be successful.
At TruAdvantage Realty, we know what it’s like to be a buyer in a competitive marketplace. We’ve helped plenty of buyer clients get into the home of their dreams. Unfortunately, we also see plenty of buyers who fail to prepare and end up leaving the market (or lingering around on it for longer than they’d like) with a sour taste in their mouths. Here are three tips for buyers that we’ve observed to be indispensable:
1. Be available for showings. Right now, the market is red hot and homes are selling lightning quick. You need an agent who can get inside a home the same day—or, at the very latest, the day after—you stumble upon it.
2. Get an agent who wins multiple-offer situations. Even if yours is one of the lower offers on a home, an agent with a proven track record of success will still be able to provide you with enough leverage to win out against the other buyers. We’re happy to have a conversation with you detailing all of the methods we employ to make our buyers’ offers as attractive as possible. We’ll even show you successful past examples of our strategy.
3. Be able to communicate with your agent in a timely manner. Whether it’s an evening, weekend, or early morning, you need to be able to get a hold of your agent. Working with an accessible and timely agent is absolutely essential.
