The real estate market in much of the country has seen a shortage of homes on the market. Eastern Massachusetts is no exception.
Combine that with the astronomical costs of renting and you have a recipe for massive demand at the entry level price point as renters clamor to get in to their first home.
Well, that's exactly how the market has been behaving for the last few years. With home ownership costing LESS than renting in many cases, there are bidding wars breaking out all over.
In fact, I personally saw one case where a buyer offered $27,000 over asking price - and he was out bid!
One key is that our system will alert you within 15 minutes of properties coming on the market. If you can react quickly, I'll get you in to see a newly listed property anywhere from 1-3 days before Zillow buyers and ther like even know the property is for sale.
If we like the home, we'll get the offer in on the spot.
Once we have that offer submitted, we do use strategies that that are designed to short circuit bidding wars. We use specific timing, terms and positioning of your offer to get your offer the best chance of getting accepted quickly.
If you've known the pain of being out bid on a property you really wanted, call me. I know how to help!
