If an agent tells you there are more buyers than homes for sale in San Diego especially Chula Vista... they are right. Cash, Conventional, FHA and VA in that order are the desired loans. Most times, with no closing costs to be paid by the seller for the buyer. You and your agent have to be proactive and ready to jump on a new listing. I often keep in close contact with agents on homes my clients wanted but weren't accepted on. Some of those do come back and we close escrow successfully. I never give up trying to find my clients their home.
Trust is the first foundation to be looked at, without that... the agent and client are spinning their wheels. The agent has been in the trenches everyday. Countless hours behind their computers, looking for that perfect property they want you to call home. Viewing hundreds of homes and writing numerous offers. If you're serious about purchasing a new home, please listen to your agent's thoughts. Let them gather all the information and present it to you, to help you decide on the offer price and terms. Myself and many other REALTORS have experienced that offers at listing prices just won't be accepted. In this market buyers need to give it their best shot from the beginning. Pre approval or better yet full loan commitment, to be presented with the offer. Highest and best, because you just might not get another chance at the property. A fair offering price is what is needed these days. The inventory is very low, many homes have 6-12+ offers. REO (real estate owned) properties can have as many as 60. Your agent has a goal... to find a great home you will be happy in for many years, negotiate the best possible price and terms for you. Keeping you well informed and having a pulse on the ever changing marketplace is my job...and I love it. I do tell the reality of the market., the good the bad and the ugly.
My office is located in Chula Vista - Eastlake and I would be happy to help you find the home you're looking for.
