When it comes to helping our clients find the home that’s right for them, we have established buying parameters, and a proven formula that helps us help you. We look at location, footprint, light, and amenities. We acknowledge conditions and challenges and assess those risks. We are generally conservative in our approach. An emotional decision can lead to buyers remorse.
We predicted the recent rise in interest rates would create a cooling effect on home sales. As rates tick upward, we are seeing both clients who are cautious and want to take a wait-and-see approach, and clients eager to buy now before rates go any higher. Sales are still competitive, with multiple offers for each listing. While homes are still selling at premium prices, our job is to ensure our buyers never overpay. There are still good deals to be had on homes, and we pay close attention to market activity. If, for instance, we see a sale that falls out of escrow before closing, that presents a great opportunity to get a home at a good price.
Despite the current uncertainty, real estate continues to be a solid investment. We work hard to keep you in your comfort zone throughout the process, and will be there with you every step of the way.
