With our seller’s market, there’s a lot of home buying competition.  When the right home hits the market, be ready to act quickly.  The good ones go under contract fast!   

Be Prepared:   Find a local lender and get pre-qualified. Do your homework.  Know the pricing and details of homes in the areas you in which you have interest. Your agent should provide a professional market analysis and go over statistics such as the list price to sold price ratio and go over the comparable homes to see what similar homes have recently sold.  Get the Keller Williams Mobile App for the  details and prices of available homes you see out and about.   

Get Notified First:  Sign on to be alerted when a home hits the market in real time. You should be setup for the specific criteria you are looking for in a home.  The search is directly from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which is more accurate than syndicated sites such as Zillow.

Be Ready:  When you see a listing that matches your criteria, go and view promptly. Make a good offer when you find the right home.  There is a lot of competition in the Austin area.  Make sure you will stand out favorably to the seller. Your agent should go over the contract with you and talk about the items that will make for a competitive offer in a multiple offer situation. Write an introductory letter about you and your family and what made you fall in love with this house.

Be Realistic: The market sets the price.  Get a professional market analysis.  A good value will receive multiple offers.  Low offers will severely limit your opportunities.
