Tip Tuesday: Don’t Lose Your Dream Home In A Hot Market

spring wreathSpring has sprung!  That also means so has the real estate market!  Houses are not staying on the market long especially over a weekend.  What homes you see on the market on Thursday will not be the same homes on the market on Monday.  So how can you be sure that you don’t lose out on your dream home in this fast moving market?






  1. Get pre-approved.  Your offer will not be reviewed or accepted by a seller unless a pre-approval letter accompanies it.  Why?  They don’t want to take their home off of the market for someone that can’t afford it. Have that pre-approval letter ready.
  2. Find an app/website that’s accurate.  In this digital age, there are websites upon websites where you can find homes for sale.  But are they accurate?  Many times clients call us telling us they found a home on a website and we look it up only to break the news that its been under deposit for weeks.  Not every website is accurate so be sure that you’re not wasting your time looking on inaccurate websites.  Our website is 100% accurate and up-to-date.  Even better?  Set up a search, download an app and get push notices every time a home gets listed that matches what you’re looking for.  Try this app out.  You can even make showing requests directly on the app.
  3. Find the right Realtor.  Why find just one Realtor?  How about 2? With Harrison Realty Team you get 2 agents working for you, which means that the strong majority of the time, 1 of us is always available to help you.  This ensures that you never lose out on a home just because your Realtor couldn’t see it with you one day.  We’ll make sure you see homes when you want.  Also, many agents don’t utilize electronic signatures.  That means that you always have to find a time in their schedule to meet with them to physically sign documents.  Harrison Realty Team utilizes electronic signatures so that we can submit an offer the second you want to.  No need to wait to meet up.  Your offer gets in front of the seller’s eyes fast!
  4. See homes.  Finally, go look at homes.  Figure out what you want and don’t want.  That way you are certain when you find your ideal home.
