Why buy existing?
Established neighborhoods provide many advantages. Mature trees, familiar locations, parks, proximity to convenient shopping, are a few of the advantages of considering an existing home. Most homes for sale are existing, allowing for a variety of options when selecting your home.
Even though someone else’s taste in décor, paint colors, or wallpaper may not be your cup of tea, it is a great time to get an excellent deal on an existing home – you just need to be willing to pretty it up a bit. A little manual (or hired!) labor could be the key to achieving your ideal home in your preferred location and at a great price.
With less inventory available to homebuyers, the trend is an increase in sales prices. The number of days that a home is on the market has decreased. In a market with less homes for sale, you need a seasoned agent who knows the real estate landscape well and can locate the best deals for you!
It is critical that you choose an experienced REALTOR® when buying a home. Handling negotiations on price, terms, inspection findings and appraisal issues without seasoned agent can be a nightmare. Make sure you have a trusted REALTOR® in your corner!
