It’s Spring!

It’s Spring!

March 11, 2014

You may have heard about the dramatics of real estate in the Spring, but I’ve always looked at the season as the most exciting time in my industry. Homes are sold before you have a chance to view them on MLS, your Realtor is calling you at all times of day or night with the hottest new listing & you’ve added the Century 21 app to your home page; it’s buying & selling season.

A few things to consider as we march into the industry of buying and selling homes during this time:

1. Is your home priced properly?
2. Are you willing to enter into a multiple offer situation?
3. Must you wait until the weekend to check out that ‘hot new listing’?
4. When hunting and you come across a fantastic home, but continue to look, how upset will you be if you find out someone else has put in an accepted offer?

A few things to get you organized & ease any anxieties you may have about this wonderful process:

1. Get pre-approved with a Mortgage Broker. They will need certain documents such as pay stubs, NOA’s, employment letters etc. so get these things together and you’ll be ahead of the game!
2. Ensure your Realtor sets you up on a Personal Clients System so you’re being e-mailed listings immediately as they pop up on MLS, not reading about them in the paper later that week.
3. Make sure your Realtor knows just what to look for and is clear on your wants & needs in a home.

I don’t write this article to get you anxious and lose sleep at night but the complete opposite, to get yourself prepared and organized so you’ll learn to fall in love with real estate in the Spring as I have. Happy Buying & Selling!
