In a competitive market, homebuyers must be strategic when making an offer on a home they hope to buy. Because buying a home is usually one of the biggest investments that a person makes, there are lots of emotions involved when determining how much they want to pay for their new home.
Submitting an offer on a home can be daunting for buyers who are worried about overpaying, or about submitting an offer that is so low that it’s not competitive with other buyers. With some guidance from a knowledgeable real estate agent, however, there are ways to avoid common pitfalls.
Selling a house is an inexact science. No matter how many market reports you read, or how many sites you visit, there is no finite answer for the average time to sell a house. However, the trick lies in trying to make the market work in your favor. There are variables you can control about the sale of your house, so while the timing might be out of your hands, the whole process doesn’t have to be. When it comes to listing your home for sale, be more prepared for the unexpected rather than the straight and narrow.

Q: What made you become interested in real estate?
A: The mortgage meltdown of the late 2000’s devastated the mortgage loan industry and led me to real estate. With my 14 years experience as a mortgage loan officer, becoming a realtor was a natural progression.
Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?
A: You never know who is going to walk through the door at an open house or what the outcome will be. On one spring morning at a new listing open house I had a half dozen neighbors walk through the door and met for the first time.The group of them ended up staying for well over an hour chatting and sharing neighborhood stories. I witnessed them become neighbors!
