Posted on August 9, 2016

Less homes on the market means more competition, fewer options, and quick decisions. Here are a few tips to discuss with your agent when you are buying a house in a seller’s market.

Know what you want.  Be sure to know exactly what you want in a home. Do research online, save pictures of homes you love, and make a list of “must haves.”

Don’t settle.  Just because it’s a seller’s market doesn’t mean you can’t find and buy the home of your dreams. Know what you want and don’t settle for less.

Find a great agent – like Brad Shoults. Be sure that you are working with an agent that makes you feel at ease and works in the area you are interested in. We specialize in real estate in Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and surrounding areas of the Gulf Coast.

Know your budget. It’s important that you have an idea of how much you can afford. Having your mortgage prequalification or a preapproval can be very beneficial.

Be ready. This means that you know what you want, you have done your research, you have a great agent, and you are ready to make some important decisions.  In a seller’s market, you might have to move quickly once you find the perfect home.

We hope these tips help you in your search for your next home. If you are looking for real estate in Destin, please contact us today. We would love to help you every step of the way.
