While this is a great market for sellers, Gilbert and Queen Creek buyers are not to be forgotten. The team at Newman Realty is dedicated to finding the best home at the best price for you and your family.
In our article How to Choose a Queen Creek Real Estate Agent, we write about how it is a good idea to ask questions like how will market your home and what is their real experience.
Practical Advice for Queen Creek Buyers
As a buyer in today’s market, it can be a bit daunting and downright frustrating. That’s why we recommend working with a real estate team that understands the market and communicates with you on a regular basis.
Come to the real estate market prepared. Get financing approval first so you know exactly what you can spend and when your offer is accepted, that your budget is ready. It is best to have funds available for both down payment and closing costs. The less we ask for from the seller, the more attractive our offer will be.
Know your needs. Do you need a specific school district? Do you need property zoned for mixed-use? Are you prepared to do home improvement projects or must it be move-in ready? Do you need space for aging parents? Are you ready to downsize? Of course, having the basics of bedrooms and baths is helpful too.
Be responsive. New listings are selling FAST. When a property of interest hits the market, let your agent know right away. Hopefully, you choose Newman Realty! It is always best to see new listings as soon as they hit the market.
Get creative. We can help you craft creative terms to make your offer stronger so that you are the buyer and not someone else. Terms for a shorter inspection period, escalation clauses, flexibility on appraised value, and flexibility on closing date can impact how attractive your offer is to the seller and may stand you out over others.
Be personal. We strongly suggest personal letters to the sellers from the buyers to be submitted with their offers. Most sellers care about who buys the home and if considering two otherwise equal offers, a great personal letter will likely be the deciding factor.
Remember sellers can only sell their home to one Queen Creek buyer, so we have to stand out as the clear choice. Waiting isn’t an option in this housing market but we can help find the right home for you, with the best terms, and you can get started living the life of your dreams.
