This week I have the privilege of showing first time home buyers. They are adorable little love birds ready for their nest. I am happy to be a part of their relationship -- their Realtor!
What do I tell first time home buyers on a budget in February 2017 in North Central Texas besides,
Quite simply, as with any healthy relationship, I tell them the truth. Set the expectation. Communicate. Mostly, as the pro in this relationship, I have to educate them on the market and how that effects our house hunting endeavor, our course of action, and the process, in general.
1. Inventory in this price point is low -- watch my real-time market updates.
2. There is a high demand -- we have to act swiftly and make offers worthy of seller consideration.
3. Houses may be sold before we get the offer in or there may be multiple offers -- exercise patience!
4. Have fun! Don't let the above be a discouragement! Anything worth having takes some work!
Happy February 2017!
