Warwick | Before You Make an Offer, Here Are 4 Tips for Success!

 

Did you know that you are legally obligated to tell the buyer about problems that could affect your home’s value, such as foundation damage or environmental hazards like a tendency for flooding or any other major problems with your house? ….in addition, if your home was built prior to 1978, federal law requires that you take several steps to protect the homebuyer from exposure to lead-based paint.

This is one of the areas where having the right representation to help you sell your home, can give you peace of mind by complying with all the rules and regulations around the home selling process in New York.

A real estate agent can help tremendously in understanding your liability and walking you through the disclosure procedures prior to putting your home on the market.

Today, I would like to address about Before You Make an Offer, Here Are 4 Tips for Success!

 

So, you’ve been searching for that perfect house to call a ‘home,’ and you finally found it! The price is right, and in such a competitive market, you want to make sure that you make a good offer so that you can guarantee that your dream of making this house yours comes true!

Freddie Mac covered “4 Tips for Making an Offer” in their Executive Perspective. Here are the 4 tips they covered along with some additional information for your consideration:

 

1. Understand How Much You Can Afford

“While it’s not nearly as fun as house hunting, fully understanding your finances is critical in making an offer.”

This ‘tip’ or ‘step’ should really take place before you start your home search process.

Getting pre-approved is one of many steps that will show home sellers that you are serious about buying, and will allow you to make your offer with the confidence of knowing that you have already been approved for a mortgage for that amount. You will also need to know if you are prepared to make any repairs that may need to be made to the house (ex: new roof, new furnace).

 

2. Act Fast

“Even though there are fewer investors, the inventory of homes for sale is also low and competition for housing continues to heat up in many parts of the country.” 

The inventory of homes listed for sale has remained well below the 6-month supply that is needed for a ‘normal’ market. Buyer demand has continued to outpace the supply of homes for sale, causing buyers to compete with each other for their dream homes.

Make sure that as soon as you decide that you want to make an offer, you work with your agent to present it as soon as possible.
