Home Buyers Face Multiple Contract Competition

Home buyers read about the bargains to be found in the national real estate market and are then shocked when they discover that they face multiple contract competition for the home they prefer.  This is the case with some properties in Montgomery County, Maryland. 

All prospective home buyers need to try to understand the local market as they enter the home purchase process.  An exclusive buyer agent that really knows the local market is a very important resource for a successful effort.  And, home buyers need to be prepared with a pre-approval letter in hand when they plan to use mortgage financing.

Stunned Home Buyers Find the Bidding Wars Are Back is the title of an article in today's issue of The Wall Street Journal.  It is good reading for home buyers and their agents.

Spring flowers are blooming.  Be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the special moments when you are out and about.

Roy -

I agree I'm dealing with several bidding wars myself.  Times are changing or already have should I say.  If one hasn't bought a home NOW is the time before looking back and saying what if. 

Thanks for the re-post of our exploding lighter.  Good to get the word out there how dangerous lighters are when left in the hot sun or near a hot grill or stove!

Have a great day in all you do my friend.

John

Roy, isn't it amazing how quickly our real estate market turned.  The inventory is SO low and, with the current interest rates being the lowest in history, it's no surprise - it just happened really fast.

Multiple offers are never much fun,  not many have come out with all parties being really happy...

Roy -- as I have been telling my buyers -- generally speaking, real estate is all local and not national.   Multiple offers and often overasking price is definitely back in many parts of our market.

Thanks, Michael, for your comments.  In Montgomery County, Maryland, home buyers need to be well prepared for multiple contract competition.  Cash purchasers with no conditions definitely have the advantage.
