Buyer Tips and Advice graphic

We still have almost 3 weeks until the 1st day of Fall, but if you are considering buying a home, my Fall 2021 Home Buyer Guide is ready now, and you can download it for FREE.

Planning to sell a home, too? Why not check out my 2021 Fall Home Seller Guide!

It’s important to be educated about the home search and buying process, especially in our very competitive sellers’ market, as a home buyer in Carlsbad, or elsewhere in our North San Diego County communities.

Even if you are an experienced home buyer you will find there are new things to learn, especially if you have not bought a home for a while! The real estate business, and the housing market conditions, keep shifting and you should be as prepared as you can be, in order to navigate the home search and buying process successfully and achieve your real estate goals.

Fall 2021 Home Buyer Guide

While the 2021 FALL HOME BUYER GUIDE does not cover everything you should know, it will help you understand the following, and more, and perhaps raise some questions we should discuss:

1. Buying a Home This Fall

2. Key Terms to Know in the Homebuying Process – real estate has lots of its own vocabulary, and there are some important terms to understand in the buying and mortgage approval process.

3. Patience is key in a Competitive Marketbecause there is plenty of buyer competition for our limited inventory

4. Why Listing Prices are like an Auction’s Reserve Priceit’s a competitive market these days!

5. 5 Tips for Making an Offerit’s not as simple as you think when multiple buyers want the same house!

6. Are We in a Housing Bubble? Experts Say No.

If we work together I will explain everything you need to know, and answer your questions, including some questions you might not even realize you have!

Have you gotten pre-approved for a loan? It’s an essential step in order to tour homes (some listings require a pre-approval letter before a showing can be confirmed) and make offers, but certainly wise to do so you know your true buying power. I can provide several recommendations of lenders to speak with…just give me a call or text me at (760) 840-1360 and let’s talk about what you need!
