Buyers are buying up homes for sale in Lincoln quickly! It's been a crazy several weeks for buyers in this housing market. Well maintained homes priced in the $100,000 to $250,000 range are really moving fast. According to the MLS 24 hour market watch as of this writing there were twelve houses in this price range that went under contract. Nine of those homes went under contract in less than five days. In fact, only one went under contract at the five day mark. The rest of them went under contract in three days for less!
What does this mean for buyers wanting to buy a home for sale in Lincoln? You must come into this housing market prepared and ready to make an offer. Unless your a cash buyer, the biggest hurdle of most home purchases involve getting your finances in order and getting pre-qualified to purchase a home with a local lender. There are many home buyers out there that are already pre-qualified and ready to make an offer this minute. If you're shopping for a home and you haven't talked with a lender yet, you might miss out on that dream home you've always wanted. That extra day or two you needed, to schedule and meet with a lender, before putting an offer on the house could mean a missed opportunity!
First things first, talk to a local lender about purchasing a home. Once pre-qualified, contact The Millers with BHHS Ambassador Real Estate and let us help you find your new home.
