But my friend got a great deal 2 years ago!

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

The housing market changes quickly. Sometimes hour to hour. I have a client looking for a home where it will be tough to find something based on his needs and ability to buy. Not impossible, but tough.

During our first conversation we discussed what he was looking for, got him pre-approved by a lender, and I started looking. My new client told me he had a friend who got a great deal 2 years ago and that's what he wants. Me too.

The current local market is now in a sellers market. We have too few sellers being chased by too many buyers. This forces prices up. Most of the "Deals" were taken by investors several years ago, wiping out the low end of the available inventory. Many of the deals have moved to the higher price points.

The market is tight right now for buyers in the under $200,000 price points.

Wouldn't we all like the benefit of investing in the past!  lol

Perhaps your friend should consider the opportunity to but today may slip away too!

2 Years ago we had plenty of homes under 200k. Now the ones at 200k and less are quite often "lot value" only.

Good morning Peter. I read your title and laughed. Me three. No one ever comes and says I want to pay as much as I can. Have a good day.
