Now I want to remind you that the most attractive, best priced homes always go under contract first. Do I have your attention?

If you are serious about finding a new home in this market you will not be successful with a “wait and see” strategy. No more waiting until the weekend to go look at a new listing. No more watching to “see what it does”.

I’m advising my clients how to successfully respond to this market. They know I am ready to spring into action as soon as they ring the alarm. Like a fireman, I am primed and ready to go as soon as they request a showing. Quick response is critical if you are a serious buyer.

The market is tight. Inventory is low. Interest rates are low. Sales volume is rising. The best way to educate yourself is to look at homes as soon as they come on the market. This will give you a solid understanding of the market conditions. Then when you find “the one” you’ll be able to confidently and quickly make a smart decision.
