Tips For Buying a Home in 2015

*Synced from Seattle and Real Estate
1910 NW 100th St-6Many homeowners will tell you that they entered and exited the real estate market several times before making the final offer and closing on their home. As a buyer, you’re not always tied down to a time frame, priorities might shift and unexpected things happen that could delay purchasing a home. The beginning of a new year is a great time to review your goals and resolutions for the year ahead, so if you’ve been thinking about buying a home, and want 2015 to be the year you take the plunge, here are a few tips to help you stay afloat in today’s marketplace.
Prospective buyers are usually shopping online, and reviewing several of their dream listings at home, researching the mortgage process, and trying to grasp the local market. Serious buyers partner up with a real estate agent well versed in the neighborhoods, and can walk them through the home buying process. Agents have completed many transactions, and will have the knowledge and experience to put you one step ahead. It also helps to stop thinking that you’re going to get a great deal on your dream home. The great Seattle marketplace is competitive, with low inventory and a growing number of serious buyers, so if you’re truly interested in buying you might want to stop hunting for a bargain. Making a low ball offer on a home when you’re first entering the buying process might seem ideal to test the waters, but it might also sabotage your offer, and lose you a home. Your agent can help you determine a fair offer, and ultimately help you find listings that match your criteria. Every buyer has a unique set of goals and needs, so contact your local real estate agent today to get started on the home buying process.
