May 2009- Mulitple offers are the name of the game.  Almost every new listing will have 3-5 offers within hours of being put on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

So what's a Buyer to do?  Well, my suggestion to one of my Buyers is to write a "Blind" offer.  This means the Buyer likes what he sees listed online and authorizes me to write an offer, email it to him, he in turns signs it and returns it to me preferably by email.  I then forward the offer to the listing agent.  It usually takes a day or two to hear back from the listing agent so that gives us time to go and look at the home and decide if it is worth pursuing further.  I'm not sure but this might be the solution for now.  Time will tell.

April 2009- So you heard last night on the news that now is "The Time to Buy".  You've been renting and thinking that maybe you should Buy a Home!  You start the conversation with your significant other and decide that tomorrow you will check into it.

The next morning you login to your computer and start looking at homes in your area.  You call a few Realtors, get some information about the homes you like and ask if you can see them.

But Wait.....Are you forgetting something?  Have you spoken to a Bank or Lender to see what price home you can afford?

A Buyer's agent is going to ask you if you have been approved for a loan.  Get used to being asked that question.  This market requires that you not only have been approved for a loan but that you have resources ($$) for a down payment and closing costs.  Gone are the days of 100% financing - thank goodness! 

My best advice - Get approved with a bank or lender first.  That way when you go online to look for homes you will know what you can afford!






I have been a Realtor with Tarbell for 13 years. I enjoy working with first time buyers and find it rewarding helping them obtain the American Dream of home ownership
