Yes, it is true that we currently have a low inventory environment in the real estate industry. This topic has been discussed over and over again, with many buyers wondering if it is the wrong time to buy a home. If you want to move to a new property, should you wait a little while until the real estate market changes?

Finding a Competitive Edge to Improve Your Offer

Just because there is more competition for the homes that are on the real estate market, it doesn’t mean that you can’t buy the home of your dreams. Instead, you need to talk to a real estate professional to improve the competitive edge for your offer. Follow these tips if you are preparing to buy a home:

  • Make sure your pre-approval is up-to-date: This document shows that you are a serious buyer and there are minimal risks with the approval that is needed for financing. Sellers want the transaction to go through without issues, so you can put their mind at ease by showing the pre-approval information.
  • Include a personal letter for the seller that shares details about your family: Personalize the offer to show the seller that a loving family is looking forward to living in the home. People have memories and emotions tied up in their homes, so it is likely that they will choose a family buyer instead of an investor.
  • Paying above appraised value: If there is a possibility that the home may not appraise but you are willing to pay a higher price tag, then you can address this issue in the offer.

These strategies might seem small, but they are important details that will make your offer more competitive compared to the offers from other people. You need to gain every advantage that is available to ensure that you can buy the home of your dreams.
