The real estate market has heated up in Yardley, Newtown and all of Bucks County, PA. I was making appointments to show a buyer client of mine 6 houses tomorrow, and 5 of the 6 are under contract and no longer available. Several of my own listings have been on the market for several weeks, and have recently gone under agreement. For buyers, it is important to present the most attractive offer possible, given your particular circumstances. Here are a few tips to put your best foot forward to a seller and still give yourself a great home buying deal.
First Things First – The Offer Price
The first thing sellers will observe on an offer is the proposed sales price. Be realistic with your offer price Try and base your offer on the last six month sale prices in the neighborhood. Make sure your offer per square foot is in the ballpark. Homes do not necessarily sell based upon a common price per square foot, but it is a good idea to check and see if your offer generally matches the average selling price for the area.
Don’t forget to take into consideration the current market climate. Here in the Yardley, Newtown area, and in most of Bucks County, the spring market has been stronger this year than it has been in a number of years. You should keep this in mind, when making offers.....
An offer with all of these elements considered can provide the most enticing deal to your sellers. If you are looking to purchase a home in the Bucks County, PA area, I would be happy to work with you. Please contact me for more information on making the best offer in the current real estate market.
