    What will the Easter bunny bring you in your basket?

    Easter weekend is here and the Easter bunny is bringing us some incredible Spring weather temperatures in the low to upper 70s. I don't know about you but I am ready to say goodbye to winter!


    Since this is one of the biggest weekends for home shopping, I want to make sure that you are prepared. 

    1. Have your financing and letters of approval or proof of funds in hand; they are required when submitting an offer

    2. Appointments need to made ahead of time! Many sellers require anywhere from 2-24 hours of notice to see a home so please let me know at least the day before if you would like to see a property so that I can get the appointment scheduled.

    3. Have your checkbook with you. If you do decide that you would like to make an offer, the due diligence deposit is due to the seller within 24 hours of offer acceptance so you will need to have that payment ready. You can pay by check, Venmo, Zelle, or wire.

    4. Properties in the most popular neighborhoods will be in high demand so be prepared for multiple offer situations. That means that it is to your best advantage to be the first one to the offer table. Don't wait overnight to make your offer as a seller can decide to accept another at any time, they do not have to wait out the multiple offer time period!

    5. Homes that are on the market today will, most likely, not be on the market next month or even next week. We have the 4th fastest moving market in the nation! If you schedule showings, you need to be ready to buy. Looking when you still have a property to sell will only make you frustrated. Contingency offers are generally not accepted (though they are in some cases) but there are other methods that we can use to help you get into a home. You might want to consider a bridge loan or HELOC if you truly find your dream property but still need to sell. Call me and we can discuss your options!

    I am here to provide you solutions and to help you gain the home of your dreams, no matter what the situation. I am your real estate expert and a native to this area. It is my sincere pleasure to help you find the right property that fits your needs and makes your heart sing!
