Things Heating Up In The $150k And Under Price Range

Real Estate Agent with (Ballenger Realty) 27941

Here we are in early February, the tail end of the winter market, and we are seeing many buyers have to scramble to get offers in before the home of their choice is bought out from under them.

Yes, urgency has returned to the Beaufort, SC real-estate market, as more buyers are competing for a seemingly dwindling supply of homes in the $100,000 to $150,000 price range.

An old axom of real estate has been that "The home you looked at and liked today is probably the home someone else looked at and liked yesterday."

It seems like it was just recently that the glut of foreclosures and short sales meant long waits for sellers, and little urgency on behalf of buyers.

Friends, that has changed. So, be ready.

We suggest buyers call a lender to get pre-approval, so that when these buyers find a home they really like, they can offer on the property as quickly as possible.

Call your Realtor when you are ready to begin your search, but call your lender to. You'll be happy you did.

We are experiencing the same thing in Southern California. Homes in that price range are going pretty quickly and it does pay to have a preapproval letter. And find a realtor who will show you what is out there on the market.

Multiple offers on homes in this price range here in Northern Virginia. When they become available they are gone by the weekend and are on the outlying suburban counties outside of Washington DC.
