Before you even set out to buy a home, you may think that you need to look at a magic number of homes in order to find the house that’s right for you. There’s always a fear among buyers that they didn’t look at enough homes before settling on one. The number of homes that you look at is up to you. There is no magic number that will dictate finding the perfect home. The most important thing is to trust your own intuition. In A seller’s market, you also may not have much choice. When inventory is low, if you find a home you love, you’ll need to move to make an offer on it! 

The Average Buyer

People looking at condos take between 1 and 3 months to find the property that’s right for them. Those looking for single family homes tend to take a bit longer- between 3 and 6 months to find a home. Buying a traditional house seems to spark more questions and more uncertainty, which leads buyers to take their time to find what they’re looking for.

Know Where You Want To Live

Before you start your home search, you should have a good idea of where you want to live. Have a list of cities, towns, and neighborhoods narrowed down to make your search a bit easier from the start. Take a ride around potential neighborhoods and get a feel for them. See the stores, restaurants, and nearby parks to really understand the area. 

Match Your Lifestyles

Where you choose to live has a lot to do with your lifestyle. Think of the following:

  • Where your friends live
  • Where your family lives
  • Where you work
  • What you do for fun

Whatever you love and whatever you love to do should be a factor in your home search. If you love the beach, you don’t want to be a three hour drive away if you can help it. You also don’t want a 2-hour commute to work. Find the balance to make your life happier in the new space you choose.      

Make A List

It sounds simple, but making a list of what you must have, what you’d like, and what would be a bonus can really help you in your home search. This holds true whether you look at 2 homes or 50 homes. The number of homes that you look at isn’t as important as your needs and wants. Buying a home is a huge investment and you need to be happy with your decision. While it’s not completely advisable to buy the first house that you see, if you have a good idea of what you want in a tough market, it’s best to put an offer in.

The home selling market can be fierce, regardless of where you live. However, there are lots of things you can do to rise above the house selling competition, and these include:

1. Learn About the Local Housing Market

Take a look at some of the available houses in your city or town – you will be glad you did. If you analyze available houses in your area and see how they stack up against your residence, you may find ways to differentiate your home from the competition.

Also, it may be beneficial to assess recently sold houses in your area. If you find out how quickly houses are selling, you can determine if a buyer’s or seller’s market is in place. Then, you can map out your house selling journey to ensure you can showcase your residence to the right groups of buyers.

2. Perform a Home Inspection

A home inspection is a must if you want to gain a leg up on the house selling competition. If you understand your house’s strengths and weaknesses, you can prioritize home repairs. Next, you can take the necessary steps to transform assorted home weaknesses into strengths.

Following a home inspection, review your inspection report. If you have any questions about the report, reach out to the inspector who provided the report. Finally, when you determine how you want to upgrade your house, you can start to complete various home improvement projects.

3. Price Your Home Competitively

If your home is priced competitively, you should have no trouble stirring up interest in your residence as soon as it becomes available.

To establish a competitive price for your house, you may want to conduct a property appraisal. This evaluation enables you to receive a property valuation that you can use to determine the right initial asking price for your residence.

For those who want to streamline the house selling cycle, it may be a good idea to hire a real estate agent, too. This housing market professional can provide you with an immediate competitive advantage over rival home sellers. Best of all, a real estate agent can help you achieve your desired home selling results without delay.

A real estate agent won’t take shortcuts, and instead, devotes the necessary time and resources to teach you about the house selling journey. First, he or she will help you establish house selling goals and plan for the property selling journey. A real estate agent next will schedule home showings and open house events that allow buyers to view your residence any time they choose. Furthermore, if you have any home selling questions, a real estate agent can respond to them.

As you prepare to list your home, it helps to do everything possible to obtain a competitive advantage over rival house sellers. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can plan ahead for the house selling journey and boost the likelihood of enjoying a successful home selling experience.
