According to a survey taken by Trulia.com, it seems that there are a few wills, won’ts, and worries buyers have in common when in the market for a new home. As trusted Flower Mound real estate agents, we found this information very interesting – and thought some of the points may help take some of the stress out of buying your dream North Texas home.
Here are a few of the most common worries, won’ts, and will’s among home buyers:
You won’t be able to find a home you like, which worries you. Some people are persnickety, but others have a legitimate concern. Some buyers are genuinely concerned that they won’t be able to find a home they will fall in love with within their price range. To combat these fears, be aggressive in your home buying efforts. Make reality-based offers, be aggressive about being shown properties within your price range as soon as they hit the market, and work with a trusted Dallas area agent who gives you sound guidance in regards to offer pricing.
You will be aggressive. Sometimes it can make a buyer feel out of control when others feel that their “ideal” home is also the ideal home in the mind of other potential buyers. The competition can be stiff – but keep in mind they’re facing the same challenges you are. Write a letter to the seller, bid above the asking price, keep in mind you can be as aggressive as you want to be. In the survey, a full 66% said they would resort to aggressive tactics in order to get that dream home!
What won’t home buyers do? Most won’t bid substantially more than the asking price. The survey found that only 9% of potential buyers would bid up to 10% over the seller’s asking price for a home or property. This should give you a tip – ask your Flower Mound realtor exactly how much over the asking price properties are selling for in the area!
Now that you know other potential home buyers go through the same worries and frustration you do, it makes the process feel a little bit easier knowing you’re not alone.
