ARE YOU BUYING A HOME THIS SUMMER OR JUST LOOKING?

ARE YOU BUYING A HOME THIS SUMMER OR JUST LOOKING?

 

Are You Buying a Home This Summer or Just LookingI find many potential home buyers are really interested are just looking to see what home are For Sale in their neighbourhood before selling their home...Many homeowners planning on selling go house hunting first to see if there are homes in their price range they like. Many plan “it’s best to buy before selling their home”

 

Not so, most home seller  are serious about selling and not keen about entertaining an offer from  a buyer with a Subject to the Sale of their home offer. When an offer comes from a buyer... home seller make decisions to accept or reject the offer not just on price but is their home Sold. An offer from a buyer with a Subject to the Sale of another home in 30-60 days, isn’t usually well received by a seller because they don’t know when you’ll sell and if you’ll get your home Sold. So it’s not in the best interest of the Buyer to try and buy without having an unconditional offer on their home

 

When planning a move, invite your Realtor over to discuss the current real estate market of your home and the Realtor will also do a Current Market Analysis known as a CMA...Now List and Sell your home...you’ll have plenty of time to go house shopping once you have an unconditional offer to buy your home.

 

When you list your home For Sale it’s a timing issue. It may take 30-90 days to sell then another 30-60 days for completion and possession totaling 4-5 months before you can move......So even though looking at homes for sale before selling seems like a good idea, you’ll be frustrated if you see home you want to buy and you have not even listed or sold your home yet

 

Are You Buying a Home This Summer or just lookingGo shopping when you have a firm offer on your home, there will be a new selection homes to look at. Then negotiate the best price you can and buy your next home of your dreams knowing your home is Sold
