I just showed a house last night at 8 pm, has been on the market for 4 days, submitted an offer this morning and it was accepted this evening. There were 20 offers on this particular home, but the way my purchase contract was written up and the documentation that was provided showed that we were more than qualified and we were not a risk. The property is a 2 bedroom, with a permitted bonus room, which makes it a 3 bedroom, 2 baths, a swimming pool and another gated area where the kids can play; this property is located in a great part of Norwalk.
There are homes, your agent has to be good at his/her job in order to get you in to your dream home. Now having said that, sometimes you are going to be out bid and that's okay, it happens. There are many buyers in these particular areas and the competition is rough.
If you need some guidance in these areas please call me at 323.359.7992 or e-mail me email@example.com.
