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.
