In our last post we discussed what creates a motivated buyer and a few ideas to help you be prepared if you are motivated buyer, today we want to continue that theme. 

Our last suggestion was about viewing homes virtually or online before to help you create your wants and needs list.

There is no substitute to viewing homes in person and exploring the neighborhoods at different times of the day, but as we all know there are only so many hours in the day!   And if you are on a short time frame you want to make the most of your time. 

One of the best ways to research homes online is to create and save a search that fits your personal criteria.  We offer this service here and it emails the homes that match your criteria directly to you! No more re-visiting sites again and again to see if there are new listings or price reductions in the homes and/or areas you are considering.   This service helps us as well as you before we hit the streets!   You can save homes that appeal to you, which makes it easier to tell us which ones you want to view in person, as well as making it easier to share the homes with your family.  Many of the homes offer virtual tours, multiple photos and often time you can use Google maps to see a “real” view of the neighborhood.  

We strongly recommend using this time saving and effective tool to accommodate your short time frame!   Just think you can view homes from the comfort of your easy chair at midnight and not disturb the current home owner!  

Call us and let us create a personalized search criteria for you!  

Helping you find your home is our goal

Getting you through the process is our expertise!

We hear a lot about motivated sellers but often times the needs of motivated buyers are overlooked.   Buyers can have a variety of reasons for buying and a time line that is just as important as a seller time frame.   So over the next couple of posts we will look at how to best prepare if you are a motivated buyer.

Reasons buyers are motivated vary as much as the type of homes on the market.  A few of the reasons that motivate buyers to be in the market are:

·         A job change

·         Wanting to move to a better school district before their kids start school

·         Family is growing – moving up

·         Family is shrinking – downsizing

Planning can make a big difference when you are a motivated buyer!  

Create your list of Priority Features

Every homebuyer has a list (on paper or in their mind) of what they must have, would like to have, and of course those items that are “deal breakers”.   The key is to having the list organized and thought out BEFORE looking at homes.  

There are the basics:

·        Number of bedrooms; bathrooms; and garage spaces

·        Area of town

·        Price range

After you have those items decided you can begin to think of the more “fun” items.   If your time frame is short then it is vital that you know the most core requirements that are absolutely vital.  Adaptability and planning is the name of the game if you don’t have the luxury of time.  

With time on your side you can view homes and create that list as you go along, but if you only have a few days in a market to make a decision then you must be prepared from the start. One of the easiest ways to become familiar with what is “out there” is to go on line and virtually view some homes and make notes of what you like and what you don’ t like.  Share your list with your Real Estate Professional – they know the market and are familiar with homes in different neighborhoods that may or may not match your criteria.   Trust them to weed out the ones that do not match your criteria.  

Reechia & Keith have been helping home buyers find their next Texas home for more than 13 years, they know the market, the floor plans, the features and the benefits of the neighborhoods and you will be glad you put their experience to work for you!   They understand motivated buyers and can help you find your home and get you through the process!
