If you are a buyer who is looking for a deal, remember that you don't always need cash to get a great deal. There are some specific ways to do it.
Number 1, get a real estate agent who knows what they are doing, knows about on and off- market properties and knows a lot about the particular area you are looking for.
Number 2, look for listings that's been on the market for a little bit longer. This time of the year is the right time to look for motivated sellers who have properties that were listed during the Christmas Season.
Number 3, look for a property that really needs updating. There may be some little things that have a big impact in the totality of the property. Something like missing carpets, oddly colored rooms, and other things similar. These can actually give you a home priced for as low as $60,000 or more below the market value.
As always, if you are looking for an agent to help you with your home buying needs, you can call me, Gabrielle at 214-659-1890.
