Home Inventory Is Up… Where Are You Buyers???

how do i buy a house

Finally… home inventory is up! I just read a report that more homes went for sale in September then they did last year at this time. In fact, this is the most home inventory for sale during the Fall in 3 years! This is GREAT news for buyers… so where are they?

I think the crazy market during the beginning of 2018 has scared a lot of them away. Their loss is YOUR GAIN! Homes are not selling as fast and there is room for negotiation now. And my preferred lenders have told me that there is a possible mortgage rate increase looming in 2019. If rates go up 1 point that could mean 10-15% less in buying power for you! You can’t afford to wait, check out my quick video about today’s buyers market, 3 reasons why you NEED to by now, and check out my team of expert buyers agents who are eager to help you buy a home before the holidays….

Rosie’s Real Estate Reveal: What Does Contingent Mean?

Welcome to another edition of Rosie’s Real Estate Reveal! These are blogs where Rosie Rourke helps you understand real estate terms and what they mean to you, the buyer or seller! Today’s reveal is all about contingent offers! Believe it or not, a lot of newer agents don’t even understand what a contingent offer is. Honestly it’s been a while since listing agents have been accepting them. But now with the market slow down, massive amounts of homes for sale, and buyers that have cooled off, agents are entertaining the contingent offers again.

What is a contingent offer?

It simple terms, it’s when a home buyer makes an offer on a new home before selling their current home. The sale of the new home is contingent or dependent on the sale of the current home. The “official” definition is as such: It means an offer on a home has been made and the seller has accepted it, but the finalized sale is contingent upon certain criteria that have to be met. Usually the successful sale of the buyer’s current home.

What does this mean for you?

When a home is “Contingent” it doesn’t mean the house has SOLD and is off the market! Did you know that you can still tour and MAKE AN OFFER on a contingent home? Not a backup offer, but you can BUMP the contingent offer and the home is YOURS!

So if you are in the market, see a home you love, and the status says Contingent… you still have a chance! I actually have 2 homes listed right now that are contingent, both of these sellers are looking for new buyers to BUMP the current contingent offers!

Are We In Another Real Estate Bubble?

Hi everyone!!!

I’ve been hearing the same thing at a lot of my listing appointments from my clients, “Are we in another real estate bubble?” My buyers agents are hearing this too from people looking to purchase their first home or sell and buy a house, or second time buyers as we call them. I decided to roll up my sleeves and put my 20+ years of real estate knowledge to the test… I decided to write an article about it!

Here is the post card I just sent out to all my friends and clients:
