Why buy an Existing Home?
Established neighborhoods provide many advantages. Mature trees, familiar locations, parks, proximity to convenient shopping, are a few of the advantages of considering an existing home. Most homes for sale are existing, allowing for a variety of options when selecting your home.
Even though someone else’s taste in décor, paint colors, or wallpaper may not be your cup of tea, it is a great time to get an excellent deal on an existing home – you just need to be willing to pretty it up a bit. A little manual (or hired!) labor could be the key to achieving your ideal home in your preferred location and at a great price. 2015 was a great year for market improvements, and the trend continues.
With less inventory available to homebuyers, the trend is an increase in price for the first time in years. The number of days that a home was on the market decreased. In a market with less homes for sale, you need a seasoned agent who knows the real estate landscape well and can locate the best deals for you!
It is critical that you choose an experienced REALTOR® when buying a home. Handling negotiations on price, terms, inspection findings and appraisal issues without seasoned help can be a nightmare. Make sure you have a trusted REALTOR® in your corner!
“We purchased an existing home with Allen’s assistance. He was instrumental in negotiations and on items that needed repair. He was always available to us and was tough, yet professional, on our behalf. He made the process such a pleasure that we enlisted his services to help our daughter, Kristin, purchase one as well”.
