Alright. Amy. We’re here for Tip 2:
Buyers Coming to NC Market Many Buyers Bidding Homes
Amy Shair of RE/MAX United Cary Apex NC, and Jim Enright of Corporate Investors Mortgage Group, Inc. share Tip #2 for buyers moving to the North Carolina area. With so many buyers buying homes, you will need to make a decision quickly.
Amy: So my second tip for buyers coming in is that there are a lot of buyers in the market, so you need to keep in mind that houses don’t stay on for very long, and that you need to be prepared to make a quick decision.
Jim: Yes. I see many offers coming in, multiple contracts. I see people losing houses all the time, so a quick offer is so important.
Amy: And some of them are going over asking price so you got to be prepared and, you know, for the right house to go above the list price.
Jim: Absolutely, I see that all the time, not unusual at all. My tip would be to really be totally prepared and be clear in your mind what you want life to look like after the fact, after you’ve closed on your home.
So what do you want your monthly payments like, what will your bill situation look like? How much cash will you have in the bank after all this is done? And what are upcoming, anticipated expenses?
Essentially, what is your life going to look like after? When you know that, then we are both in a situation to help you more.
