Looking for a New Place to Live? Don't put it off till Saturday!
Over the last year, house searching has turned into a contact sport. The imagined notion of a leisurely Saturday morning spent perusing open homes and planning the day's excursions over coffee and croissants is a thing of the past. While attending a neighborhood open house may be enjoyable for the casual observer, if you are serious about locating your future home, this atmosphere necessitates planning.
To begin, and most crucially, choose precisely what you want and desire in a new house.
Then, in detail, communicate this concept to your agency. Not only should you determine what you need in a house, but also which neighborhoods will best suit your lifestyle. With a smaller pool of available goods, you must also be clear about whatever concessions you are prepared to make—if any.
Once you've determined what you're searching for, the next step is to schedule some home shopping time throughout the week. That is correct, it is mid-week.
Indeed, Thursdays are the greatest days to explore a neighborhood for individuals looking for open houses. Thursdays have historically been the day for agent open houses. This is the time for real estate professionals to tour new properties, but they are also available to buyers. This enables serious buyers to see and submit bids on new properties prior to the weekend rush.
In a seller's market, strategy is key. Serious purchasers must focus their searches in order to stay one step ahead of the competition. Being accessible to see new listings as soon as they become available is one method to avoid missing out on a chance to put an offer on the perfect house.
