Interest rates are still incredibly low providing a great opportunity for purchasing your dream home or investment property. Home prices in many areas are still increasing. Especially in the lower price ranges, there are often multiple offers and overbidding.
A word of caution to the inexperienced buyer: Some of the vacant homes and rentals have not been maintained for quite a while. Unattended leaks can cause mold, mildew & dry rot problems that can be quite expensive to repair. Poor outside drainage can cause foundation cracks and moisture issues. The importance of hiring a good, qualified home inspector (and professionals with expertise in discovered problematic areas) can not be stressed enough. A perceived “good deal” could turn into a bad investment and a disappointing experience for the first time homebuyer or investor.
There is NO CHARGE to Buyers for me to represent them! I strongly recommend Buyers to have a licensed Realtor represent them. An experienced Realtor can guide Buyers through the process professionally, including recommending experienced professional lenders to use for financing, reputable home warranty companies to use for their purchase, reputable escrow and title companies to use in their transaction, reputable home inspection companies to inspect and report on the condition of the home they are purchasing, etc.
An experienced Realtor will make you aware of ALL homes that are available and show you the best homes that best fit your needs within your budget. A professional Realtor will point out the pluses and minuses of each property and run a market analysis of that property, enabling you to make the best decision possible.
