What should buyers consider when they’re
00:07
thinking about buying a new home? We
00:09
think there are 3 important things to
00:12
consider when thinking about buying a
00:13
home and that’s; location, condition and
00:17
price. Location is maybe a little bit
00:26
more complex than just what city are we
00:28
looking to move to. Would we like to be
00:32
close to parks, would we like to be in a
00:35
certain school district, is there a
00:37
particular neighborhood vibe that we’re
00:39
trying to capture? With location comes
00:43
different pricing you know so we kind of
00:46
have to weigh the pros and the cons or
00:49
our wants and our needs. Oftentimes when
00:57
we ask clients about condition they’ll
01:00
mention that they wouldn’t mind putting
01:01
in a little bit of elbow grease maybe
01:03
doing some carpet and some paint. Then we
01:07
go look at a couple of houses and one
01:09
will be freshly updated with all-new
01:12
countertops and appliances and flooring
01:14
and then we’ll walk into a home that
01:16
hasn’t been updated and they’ll
01:18
say something like, “I don’t know I just
01:20
like that first one a lot better”. Start
01:22
thinking about what kind of condition
01:24
you’d be okay with when you make your
01:26
home purchase.
01:27
Price is going to be very important. In
01:34
the market that we’re currently in we’re
01:37
seeing oftentimes homes that are getting
01:41
multiple bids and the pricing is being
01:44
brought up a little bit. There are
01:46
strategies for trying to get a better
01:50
price in the market that we’re currently
01:52
in such as looking for homes that have been on
01:55
the market a little bit longer than four
01:58
to seven days. Negotiation is a big part
02:01
of what we bring as a real estate team
02:03
so Joe and I will make it a priority to
02:07
negotiate the very best price for the
02:10
home that you choose.
