I agree with Bill. I am a Lakes Region agent and have noticed since the beginning of the year there is a sense of urgency with my buyer clients to purchase as the market is trending upward. This is a great time to buy as prices are still low. Are you working with an agent to start searching for properties? I would recommend that you schedule to view the properties to narrow down to the one you may want to put an offer on. Also, if you are financing, before previewing the properties, get a pre-approval ready to submit with your offer, or proof of funds if paying cash.
Feel free to contact me with any further questions.
