How to Buy in a Sellers’ Market

When you’re preparing to purchase a property in a sellers’ market, you must have all your ducks in a row. Understanding your maximum budget, having financial preapprovals if required, and if the purchase of your next property is contingent on the sale of an existing property, you will need to consider selling that ahead of writing an offer on your next home.

  •      Know your budget, and consider searching below your budget. This isn’t the time you’re going to negotiate with a lowball offer. Properties are priced to sell, and they will sell at asking or possibly above.
  •      Don’t tempt your self by previewing homes that are out of financial reach for you.
  •      Be prepared to go up against multiple offers. It’s important to have experienced representation when you enter into a multiple offer situation. The Kamenka & McArdle team has extensive experience in these situations and will provide you with their expertise to help you get the house of your dreams.
  •      Don’t become overly invested in the property you’re offering on. In every multiple offer situation, there’s only one winner!
