For the first time in years the real estate market is heating up: Homes up to $250,000 fly off the shelves and more buyers are entering the real estate market looking for a home.
YES, contrary to nationwide news, last years Colorado Springs' buyers market has this year turned into a sellers market. Don't get me wrong: Homes that are NOT priced right and not kept up properly are still not selling - at least not at a premium. However, finally, if the seller (and his agent) has done everything right, success shows itself in form of multiple offers in the first week.
What does this mean for buyers who are ready to buy? It means, that you'll need a Buyers Agent in your corner to secure the home of your dreams when you find it.
Sure, drive the' the neighborhoods and see 'what's out there'.
- Take notes on the information sheet that your real estate professional sent to you and that you have printed out
- Look at the neighborhood
- Is the home close enough to schools, work etc.
No need to call on signs, though - your agent has already set you up with lots of information about all the properties that are available. This will speed up the home purchase selection process.
Are you afraid to chose an agent? Don't be, they are here to help. Read reviews, interview them, talk to your friends.
Just imagine: You'll have someone in your corner to help you find the home of your dreams! A Buyers Agent will assist you with all your questions, help you save time by providing you with homes that are still on the market or send you an instant alert when a home that fits your criteria hits the market, and finally, guide you through the buying process. For buyers this service is free.
If you have questions that you feel you need immediately answered, call your agent! He or she will be happy to help. Most likely, you will get a more detailed answer from your personal buyers agent than you would ever get from listing agent.
