Who Says Buyers Are Not Buying?

Real Estate Agent with La Rosa Realty

If you want to know if there are buyers out there, you first need to make sure you have couple good properties on the market that are ready to sell at realonable price in todays' market.

You may also talk to several title companies, they are the ones doing the closing and they can tell you if they are busy or not.  One of the title company that one of my asset management company uses is extremely busy now.  They had to hire extra people to assist them this is certainly a good sign in todays market.

Personally, I've noticed that more and more investors are starting to buy.  One investor currently have three properties under contract, all within gated communities.  So now is the time to get your buyers off the fence and have them take advantage of many of these good deals that are out there.

I totally agree.  In my market, homes go into escrow every day.  The key is, it must be priced write, show well AND the sellers must be willing to negotiate.

I would agree with you. It seems that buyers are showing themselves....but you are right, the homes have to be priced right and ready to move in.

Netta, I absolutely agree.  Our company holds real estate auctions for FL and sometimes TN.. What I've seen lately are investment groups that have been "laying low" are now buying, typically in bulk, but I'm also getting a lot of calls from end-users from other states buying specifically in FL.  So I agree, the buyers are coming back.  Woo hoo!

I agree also.  Pricing is the key to getting homes sold in this market. Now is a great time in my area for investors to make a move. ANd more and more are starting to strike out.

The agents in my area that are working are really working.  Buyer activity is definitely increasing.
