Buying and Selling a Home
Buying and selling a home in this real estate market is not for the faint of heart!
In today’s fluctuating financial climate, there are many areas that one needs to examine before they buy or sell a home.
For instance, if you’re thinking of buying a foreclosed house, you must ask not only the price, but about the financing that is offered, and what shape the property is in. Often, but not always, the most recent owner has left the home in disrepair. But it is a reality and you must make an intelligent decision as to whether or not the home is worth fixing up. Foreclosed homes can be a bargain or a burden.
Be aware of supply and demand whether buying or selling a home. Buyers are waiting to see if housing prices and interest rates have bottomed out. If you wish to sell your home, you must make decisions about what you have to offer as compared to other homes in your area. Creativity as well as price is the guiding force here as other sellers may be willing to hold a mortgage, pay closing costs, or include upgrades.
