There are times in life to act quickly and times to act slowly.
When you're searching for a new home in a hot real estate market, not much good comes out of being slow and methodical.
Sure, it's a big purchase and you don't want to make a big mistake. That's why you SHOULD hire an experienced buyer's agent that knows the market, knows the trends, knows what sells and what doesn't.
As you look at houses, some segments of our market demand you act almost immediately. Homes may not last beyond a day or two before being under contract or in multiple offers. Act slowly and you might as well not act at all.
Other parts of our market move slower. There's a LITTLE time to think, but even there, you never know when the clock will run out and another buyer offer on the home you're thinking about.
So when you and your agent find the right home, why wait on writing the offer?
You're hoping the seller will drop price in the next few days? You can accomplish the same thing by negotiating an offer today if the seller is ready to move on price. And if you think a home is REALLY not worth anything close to what the seller is asking, offering now will either determine there is some flexibility after all, or if negotiations stay civil, you can come back later for another attempt.
But our advice is if you've found the right home, get the offer written ASAP. Don't sleep on it. Get it done and get it presented to the sellers. You don't want to find out you missed your shot because you took too much time to think about it.
