When you’re searching for Port Aransas homes for sale, especially if you’ve been to see your favorites, you’re warming up to actually making an offer.
But are you ready to do that?
Many people are so excited to dive into home ownership that they’re ready to make an offer immediately. While that’s great, you need to know a few things before you jump in with both feet.
3 Things to Know Before You Make an Offer
Your Realtor’s® job is to make sure you’re getting the best possible price on a home, and part of that includes doing plenty of market research.
Before you make an offer on any home, sit down and talk about your options with your Realtor.
Some of the things your agent is going to review so you can make the best possible decision include:
- How much the seller paid
- Why the seller is selling
- What the last 6 months have looked like as far as sales
How Much the Seller Paid
You may not know exactly how much the seller paid for the home (and in some cases, it doesn’t matter)—but if the sale was recent enough, it may make a difference in how much you offer for the house.
Why the Seller is Selling
If the home’s current owners are in a big rush to move, whether it’s because of a corporate relocation or something else, you may be able to adjust your offer accordingly.
What the Past 6 Months on the Port Aransas Real Estate Market Have Looked Like
Your Realtor’s job is to keep tabs on the Port Aransas real estate market, so she’ll know whether homes have been selling below list price. If they have, that’s often an indicator that the seller will accept a small percentage less than what he or she is currently asking.
