Helen Ga Real Estate "When is a good time to buy? Am I ready to BUY??"

By
Real Estate Agent with No. Georgia Mountain Realty

Now.  Now is a good time to buy real estate in northeast Georgia.  Why?  Because you don't have as much competition for the home you like and want to purchase.  Because everyone else is shying away from making a decision until after the election.  Because people who have to relocate are willing to take less if you have a good offer.  What is a good offer?  One that does not have strings attached.  One that comes with a letter from the buyers' lender stating the buyers have their loan in place and are ready to close.  One that comes WITHOUT a house to sell before the buyer can purchase.   Then a Seller is more excited about an offer to purchase and don't feel as threatened.  A Seller feels threatened when they are not sure their house will close, because the Buyers house may not close.  It is a terrible feeling to be packed up to move and have a closing fall through.  Moving Vans have been scheduled, utilities have been cut off, people have taken off work to help you move...and then it does not happen on schedule. 

So you can see the value of being able to negotiate price when you are ready willing and ABLE to close on the house you want within a short period of time.  Wouldn't you take a lower price if you knew the chances of closing were dramatically increased?  Most people would.

Do your homework when you start to buy, know your negotiating leverage comes from a clean offer!

The more contingencies your offer contains, the less likely the Seller is to negotiate price.
