The facts are the facts. The facts are that in some areas there is simply NO inventory. What does that have to do with buying a home? Well, imagine if you just wanted a simple loaf of bread. You had the $3.00 in your hand, and you had the “fixins” for a great sandwich at home but you were out of bread. You can afford the bread, and you like bread, and there are lots of bread choices , or at least there used to be, right? But the day you finally are ready to make a super sandwich and share with your family, well, they are out of bread.
NO BREAD ? You ask! Well, we have bread, but now that you have the fixins and you have the $3.00 to purchase, you discover you must now pay $5.00 for the bread…
What gives? Well you are back to work to make the extra $2.00 you now need to buy the bread
. Then you discover when you finally have the $5.00 that your bread now costs, they are flat out of the $5.00 bread too….and that’s the facts. Prices can rise that fast, and generally do in a quick real estate market.
So what do you do in this case? Well you get to know the person who stocks the bread on the shelf and you wait for them to arrive to stock ,you learn what their hours are and YOU WAIT FOR THEM…and you are the first in line, ready with your money and YOU get the bread FIRST! YOU WAIT AND YOU ARE READY TO JUMP ON THAT BREAD!!! Before the next bread customer.
OH! and you ask a great agent to help you apply this bread principle to buying a home. The Facts will set you free!
