7 Essential Tips for Home Buyers in a Tight Market

Updated: Jun 28

Navigating today’s competitive housing market can be challenging, but with the right approach, you can find your dream home. Here are seven essential tips to help you succeed:

  1. Hire a Reputable Agent: Work with an experienced realtor (like me!) who knows the market and can guide you through the process.

  2. Set a Budget and Stick to Your Limits: Determine what you can afford and avoid the temptation to overspend.

  3. Minimize Contingencies: Discuss with your agent how to streamline your offer by reducing contingencies.

  4. Get Pre-Approved for a Loan or Use a Cash Offer: Strengthen your position with a pre-approval or, if possible, a cash offer.

  5. Bid Competitively and Act Quickly: Make a strong initial offer, have a backup plan, and be ready to decide promptly.

  6. Increase Your Earnest Money: Show your commitment by offering more earnest money, making your bid more attractive.

  7. Shop Online to Narrow Down Choices: Begin your search online to understand the market better and focus on specific neighborhoods and homes.
