The spring and summer months are traditionally the busiest times of year for the residential real estate market.
Here in Franklin TN, it’s hoppin!! The weather is beautiful and many families are more open to moving at this time.
There are many homes on the MLS right now — more buyers and fierce competition with increase in home prices.
If you are in the market to buy or sell a home this year — here are a couple of things to have in place.
- Hire a realtor!! ME!
- Get pre-approved. This will give an advantage on several fronts. First, it’s DONE and out of the way. Second, you’ll know exactly how much the bank is willing to loan you — so you will know what your price point is. Third, it will show sellers that you are ready to buy and serious when making an offer.
- Have your down payment!! There are many loan programs that accept 3-5%, if you do not have more $$. Don’t forget closing costs — generally 2-6%
This is a stressful event in most peoples lives — I promise, I will be with you every step of the way! It will be smooth and a positive transition.
