5 Reasons to Buy Now

Are you looking to buy a home?

1.     Leverage to negotiate prices

It's not something first-time buyers may think about, but the benefits of owning a home could really make your life easier. When you make an offer on a new place, you can negotiate the price and get more for your money. This is due to a higher demand for homes in general.

2.     Inspection Negotiations

This is a great benefit to have when buying any home. If there are issues with the home that have not been disclosed and they are found after closing, you can ask for them to be fixed or renegotiate the price based on the repairs needed. Make sure your agent knows what you want to look for during inspections and brings your buyer inspection form filled out based on what you have already discussed with them.

3.     Purchase with Contingency

When you put an offer in with contingencies, you don't have to worry about paying more than the asking price if you're trying to see what else is out there, as long as you have some way of going through with the purchase if you find your ideal house.

4.     Sellers may pay for improvements or repairs.

In some cases, sellers will agree to cover certain repairs or fixes that are needed before moving in. This includes having them fix the plumbing leaking around your dishwasher or fixing the roof that leaks while having it replaced by professionals. You get the idea that if something has been falling apart, it's best to ask right away before buying it.

5.     Less Homebuying Competition

During the pandemic, the housing market was in an all-out bidding war, with new prospective buyers willing to bid well above the asking price. Now the wars have died down to the point where the selling price dips below what the asking price was originally set to.
