6 Truths About Today's Marketplace That Will Help Any Buyer Be More Realistic

There is no perfect house......when you find a house/property that is consistent with your top few priorities -consider writing an offer. Seldom does a buyer find a property that has more than 85% of what they want/need.

The popular properties priced right go quickly-so be actively looking on places such as ryanvaught.com for the newest property listings in your area. 

Package yourself and your offer so that both look good to a seller. You may be in competition with one or more buyers for the same property. See post from September 26, 2008 "5 Keys To Making You & Your Offer Look Great in Chico".

The home buying process is complex, so consider using professional service providers such as real estate agents, attorneys, etc. Also, do your homework and research the home buying process so you have some knowledge of what is going on.

If value and price are important to you, have an appraisal or Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) done on the property BEFORE buying it. 

Don't be surprised if and when you get buyer's remorse...an uneasy feeling about your buying decision. Most people question their decision to purchase at some time during the process.
