Buying a home can be a long, complicated and frightening process, and it is important to be prepared. Knowledge is power when it comes to negotiating the difficult world of home prices, interest rates and mortgage loans. For a first time home buyer, the more information you can gather before you start shopping, the better off you will be.  Talking with a professional Realtor can help you separate fact from fiction.

As reality programming continues to dominate the television world, real estate shows have proven to be a real hit among viewers. Shows such as Million Dollar Listing, Love It or List It, House Hunters and Property Virgins all depict the experiences of real people looking for real homes.

As it turns out, however, those experiences aren’t always so real. The process of buying a home – in real life – isn’t quite as simple, and the houses aren’t as well designed, so television must find a way to exaggerate, sugarcoat and package the story so viewers will want to watch.

 

Here are some examples of what you and your Real Estate Agent should now about today’s Sellers’ Market:

  • Inventory (homes for sale) is at its lowest in years (this causes the prices to rise)
    • Not as many homes for sale
    • Builders are struggling to produce enough homes to keep up with the market
  • Despite multiple offers, appraisal values are not always equal to what buyers are willing to pay
    • This only matters when the buyers are financing their purchase
    • Might mean that the buyer’s financing falls through or has to pay the difference out of their pocket
  • Due to multiple offers, sellers are not always willing to negotiate on the following.
    • Overall purchase price
    • Closing costs
    • Inspection Report Repairs (unless a major issue)
  • Interest rates are no longer at records lows; however, the restrictions to qualify are still at their highest in years. This means that deals may fall through anytime throughout the process.
