Buyers...are you sweating the little things?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

In today's hot Real Estate market Available homes are in short supple.

Even in the dead of winter a nice home can get multiple offers in just a few days.

A couple things to think about.


1. When looking at an existing home, are you worried about small things?  Does that scratch in the door bother you.  Don' like the color of paint?

2. If you want a perfect  home do you have time to wait for it to be built?


Making an offer with a laundry list of small items may not get you very far.  and if you need to move right away a new home may not be possible, Not a single new home for sale in North Branch for 1st time buyers.


Now is the time to talk with an agent and figure out just how you want to proceed.

It is a lot harder to buy a home today than it was 3 years ago!


This may qualify for some negotiations!

Good advice but buyers are always going to sweat the little things. And, they deserve to if they want. It's their potential new home.

Good morning, William Feela if I were a buyer and saw that basement, I'd be hauling my butt out the front door...

In a seller's market you can't afford to get picky. I have seen more buyers lose houses over small do-it-yourself projects then I have ever seen in my 19 years of Real Estate William Feela

Most cosmetic things don't seem to bother the buyers. Those structural problems found by the home inspector do bother them.

In todays buyers market you can't be picky at all. There are too many other buyers that are willing to overlook small, cosmetic problems & will scoop up the home in a minute.
