Hold up! Don’t get too excited about that house yet. Be sure to check for these items before putting in an offer…
🏡 Odors
🏡 The conditions of the walls and floors
🏡 Unpermitted additions
Also, be sure to keep comments to yourself while inside the home. You never know if the homeowners have security cameras. We don’t want them to hear your concerns or how excited you are about the house. It could hinder your chance of getting an offer accepted.

One of the biggest misconceptions when it comes to buying a home is consumers don’t realize they can shop around for their mortgage rate. Consider different options such as your bank, a local credit union, or an online lender. Be sure to ask each of them about their rates, loan terms, down payment requirements, property insurance, closing costs and fees of all kinds, and down payment assistance programs. Comparing these details will help you get a great rate so you can stick to your budget and help you feel more secure in your purchase. If you need me to recommend a great lender, I’ll be more than happy to connect you!

There’s so much more to being a real estate agent than just showing houses all day. It takes a special person to be in this business. There are days where I get to share the good news of telling my buyer that their offer was accepted, and then there are bad days when I have to tell a seller that a buyer backed out. Throughout the day, I’m a salesperson, an advocate, an analyst, a business manager, a consultant, a negotiator, a therapist, and a marketer. But do you want to know a secret? I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s an honor to be part of your real estate journey. If you want to know how I’m different from other agents, send me a DM.

A survey conducted by the National Associate of Home Builders (NAHB) showed that 40% of buyers have been outbid for a home that they submitted an offer on. This is more than double the percentage in 2019, which was 19%. What does this mean? Well, for sellers, it means that they’re in the driver’s seat and get to control a little more of the negotiations. If you’ve been planning to move up to a bigger home, or have been thinking about building your dream home, now is the perfect time to put your current house on the market. Contact me today to learn how much your home could be worth.

The real estate market is on 🔥! If you find a home you love, make an offer. Waiting in this market means missing out.

According to the latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), sales are up 23.7% from the same time last year, while the inventory of homes available for sale is down 25.7%. There are 360,000 fewer single-family homes for sale today than there were at this time last year. What does this mean for you? If you’re a buyer, be prepared to find ways to make your offer stand out from the others. In addition to offering more than the list price, consider paying the title, having a shorter option period, or putting more money down as a deposit. Be sure to contact me to learn all the ways I help my buyers stand out and win the contract on the home of their dreams in a competitive market.

When going through a real estate transaction, there’s going to be times when you hear a word you may not understand. A contingency in a real estate transaction is a list of conditions that have to be taken care of, such as a buyer receiving approval from the mortgage company or the seller taking care of repairs. Until these conditions are met, the sale of the home will not close.

We’re still experiencing historically low mortgage rates. The average mortgage rate on a Freddie Mac 30-year fixed-rate mortgage over the past 50 years has been 7.76%. Today, that rate is 2.81%. Over the past year, homebuyers have been taking advantage of these remarkably low rates, but they may not be available much longer.

Changing your filter is critical in maintaining the cleanliness of your family’s drinking water. The water filter acts in the same way respirators work to keep out dust and viruses in hostile and dirty environments, as it prevents unwanted molecules from entering the water and keeps your drinking water fresh and safe. On average, filters should be changed every 6 months.
