So, one of our MARKHAM REALTY AGENTS has been helping you look for the perfect piece of real estate and you’ve found it. But, since the inventory is very low in 2017, you need to act quickly so that you don’t miss the opportunity…other buyers are out looking too!
You need to be prepared, plan ahead and be ready to put your “best foot forward” and here are a few tips to help you do just that
1. GET READY…. If you’re going to be getting a loan, ask your MARKHAM REALTY AGENT to help you find a good lender. You might want to interview several lenders to make sure you’re getting the best financing possible. This takes a little time, so get started early. Choose your lender carefully and ask them to give you a preapproval letter that says you are preapproved to purchase a property. This document adds credibility to your offer and could tip things in your favor if the Seller is receiving multiple offers. Your lender needs to be credible too, so be wary of choosing a lender who is not familiar with the area market.
2. GET SET…. Do you need to sell an existing property before you can purchase a new one? This is something to discuss in detail with your MARKHAM REALTY AGENT. If you are trying to purchase a new property, but you cannot do so unless you have sold your existing real estate, you could be at a disadvantage when your offer is reviewed by the Seller. In a competitive market, most Sellers do not want to hold their property until the Buyer’s current property is sold. We know this is a little scary, so let your MARKHAM REALTY AGENT guide you through the selling and buying process.
3. GO…. Your MARKHAM REALTY AGENT is experienced in helping you submit an appealing offer and wants to represent you with the utmost loyalty and integrity. Don’t drag your feet. When you find the property that meets your needs, be prepared to act quickly. Some new listings are under contract with Buyers on the same day they come on the market. Your MARKHAM REALTY AGENT will help you from beginning to end (and then some). Guiding you to get your inspections done, restrictions determined, boundaries staked….the list goes on and on.
