Winter brings cold weather, but the real estate market is hot!
People have asked me if winter is a slow period for real estate. I’m speaking to buyers and sellers daily, setting appointments and showing homes. I don’t know about the global market but I’d say real estate is busy in my world! People may not prefer to move in the ☃️ snow but the fact is buyers are ready to buy (especially serious buyers at this cold time of year), so if you’re thinking of selling a home – let’s talk!
Here are a few tips if you’re thinking of buying a home:
– You do not need 20% to buy a home. So ❌ STOP dumping money into rent. Real estate is a great way to build wealth. I get renting if you’re in a transient state of life or not ready to settle down in a location, but other than that, the only thing stopping you from buying is you not contacting me. Text or call me: 781.864.7372.
– Get pre-approved before you start looking at houses. NO offer will be taken seriously without a pre-approval letter from a lender. Emphasis on the word “NO” as in zero, zilch, nadda.🙅♀️ I don’t encourage anyone to go house poor, but you may actually qualify for more than you think! Stop telling yourself you can’t afford a house. Have you considered all your options available to you? I’m happy to connect you to my favorite lenders if you don’t have a friend or family member in the mortgage business.
Does this all make sense? Let me know I’m not throwing verbal vomit into a black hole by commenting below if you find these real estate tips helpful, or if there are specific topics you’d like to see addressed in the future.
Okay, that’s all from me for now!
