Check back with us every Saturday for the real estate update. At the end of each month we will take a look back at 2021 and 2020 so you can compare how this year is going.
Call us at 63-503-6555 with all of your real estate questions. Your goal is our goal. We will do everything we can to help you reach your goal.
Request a home valuation if you are thinking about selling. Tell us a little bit about your home and what has been recently updated. We will let you know what it might sell for and give you an estimate of expenses to sell. This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms so you can make a good decision.
If you are thinking about buying a home this year get in touch with a loan officer.. Get them all your financial information so they can run you through underwriting and get you conditionally approved. You need to take this extra step if you need to get financing. As you can see above conventional financing is the one seller’s are most willing to accept at this time.
It is a great time to sell and can be frustrating to be a buyer right now. Persistent, patience and putting your best foot forward will help you.
