Buying takes skill. It's a lot like extreme couponing. You get your ducks in a row and wait for that perfect sale so everything falls into place. But what if you don't have the time? It all depends on what you want, where you want it and how much you are willing to pay for it.
Here are some vital tips to buying Sierra Vista real estate.
We love our area and having an agent that knows the area can make all the difference in the world. If you use an out of town agent that may not know the market trends and what homes should be priced at, you may end up paying a lot more for a home. If you can wait and be patient for the right home the payoff can be amazing.
Do you have a home sell before you buy a new one?
If so, don't wait to sell before looking. It's ok to look and if you speak to a lender ahead of time about a possible bridge loan if your home doesn't sell in time you may find yourself a great deal. Get everything ready to buy a home before you sell. I'm not saying that you're guaranteeing a double mortgage but if you're ready now, you won't miss a great deal on a great home if it comes and goes quickly on the market.
Do you have buy quickly?
If you don't have the time to sit and wait for the perfect home, the second best option is to find an experienced agent to do all the work for you. An experienced agent, like myself, knows almost all the listings on the market at a given time. My connections with other Sierra Vista Realtors in the area can help you find the right home before it even hits the market. This can save you time and money by finding the right home at a killer deal before anyone else can.
Are you an investor?
Investors sometime have the luxury of waiting out the market. If you're a first time homebuyer, and you only have to pay rent for your current home, you may have the luxury of sitting and waiting for the right home to become available. Investors typically have cash to put down and lenders like this type of sale because they know they won't have to deal with the home in foreclosure or loan default again. Many time first time home buyers get beat out by the cash buyer but most of the time investors have a waiting period once a home is listed to give actual owner occupied buyers a chance at a great home.
So can you buy the right house at the right price at the right time? Yes! It takes skill, patience and a great Realtor!
