Today’s real estate market explained by Diana Stone, Realtor
Diana Stone explains, “If Home Prices are Right, they fly off the Market in Colorado Springs”.
I have been an active full-time Real Estate Professional for over 30 years and I have weathered many a storm: foreclosures, up markets, down markets, peaks and valleys and I can honestly say I have never experienced a market as we have today. If homes are priced right, they fly off the shelf – usually with multiple offers.
I personally had one property that my Buyers were trying to purchase and there were 38 offers – 6 cash for a minimum of $40K over list price! So it is more important than ever to do your homework:
- Be pre-approved (not just pre-qualified) with a local, highly respected Lender.
- Position yourself with knowledge, check out neighborhoods – talk to the people actually living there, they will tell you more than you really want to know.
- In other words ZERO in on what you are looking for and communicate that to your agent.
- Be open to suggestions, hopefully you will find an agent that cares about YOUR needs and not just interested in selling you a house but a HOME.
