4 Tips For Buying A Home In A Hot Market

When a market is hot, finding and buying a home can feel like an uphill battle. In a seller’s market, homes go quickly. They can be on the market one day and gone the next. And on top of the challenge of finding a home, most homes (especially the desirable ones) have multiple offers, making it harder to get into the home of your dreams.


But buying a home in a hot market isn’t impossible! You just have to approach it strategically and stack the deck in your favor to find – and successfully buy – the right home for you and your family.


Here are four tips for buying a home in a hot market that will put you a step ahead of the home-buying competition:

11 Ways to Sell Your Home Faster (WITHOUT Dropping the Price)

From leaving the house for showings and open houses to having to keep the place spotless at all times, having a home on the market can be a nerve-wracking endeavor. Once you’ve made the decision to sell, you want to know that you won’t be in this anxiety-filled limbo forever. You want to hand over those keys, collect your check and move on — literally!
So, without lowering your asking price, what can you do to sell your home in a hurry? The following are 11 strategies that will help your property sell quickly without your wallet taking a heavy hit.
1. Declutter.

Selling Your Home? These Are The Features Homeowners Are Looking For

When potential buyers hit the market, they typically have a list of things they want and need in their new home. As a seller, if you can anticipate those wants and needs, it puts you in a better position to successfully sell your home. And, thanks to a new survey, anticipating those wants and needs just got easier.


According to a recent survey from home services company Porch, home price (77%) and home size (60%) topped the list of features homebuyers look for in a new home. But those aren’t the only features potential buyers are looking for! There are a number of features homebuyers look for in a home that you can control as a seller, including home features (50%) and curb appeal (14%).




The Takeaway


As a seller, there’s a lot you can do to cater to potential buyers, like landscaping your yard to increase curb appeal or adding desirable features—and the more you cater to what homebuyers want, the faster and easier it will be to sell your home ...

Five Secrets to Buying a Home You'll Love

Most tips for buying a home start with figuring out how much you can afford. But what else is there? Are there other tips for buying a home that can make a big impact? Yes! From our own experiences and those of our real estate colleagues, here are the top little-known secrets for buying a home you’ll love. 

Know Your Borders 

There have been situations where the previous owners of the property “blurred” the legal property lines, taking a bit more space than was theirs. Rather than discover that you need to move your fence three feet inward or possibly remodel your garage because it extended too far past the property line, get a surveyor to map out the legal property lines. 

Bigger Isn’t Always Better 

It’s the American dream to own a big home. Indeed, we often measure our success by how big or expensive our home is, and it’s only natural to want the ...
