Buyers in today's market have to have a game plan in place, especially for single family homes listed under $400,000. Well priced listings in this price range will sell in days, if not hours, and if a buyer is not properly positioned to react lightning fast someone else will. A new home hit the market about 5:00 last night that one of my clients has been properly positioned to react to and I am meeting them there at 8:00 this morning as that is when the lock box is being installed. If the home looks to be the opportunity it does on paper they will have a properly presented offer complete with a pre-approval letter from a direct letter before 9:00. Anyone waiting to find this hot new listing on the internet will be too late.
That home happens to have a very limited HOA and in Evergrene with the higher fees and some homes close to the railroad you usually have a little more time to react, but not always. As of this moment there are 10 single family homes available in the community and believe it or not only one of them is a short sale. The new listings on Nature Court and Mill Creek Drive look interesting and if you want to send me your e-mail address I would be happy to notify you immediately of anything new that meets your individual needs. Be very careful as much of the inventory is either over-priced or has condition or location issues and you need to be fully informed of the metrics surrounding each parcel you may be interested in.
The best thing you can do is locate a qualified Realtor who can assist you in clearly defining your goals, paying close attention to not only location but budget and condition you are willing to accept. In this market you have to be ready to act quickly when the right opportunities present themselves. I would enjoy the opportunity to be on the list of RealtorsÂ® you interview be very happy to work with you towards meeting your goals.
Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please let me know.
Always at Your Service,
