No Homes for Sale in the Area You Like? Here’s What to Do...

Imagine there’s a neighbourhood you’d love to live in someday, but, every

time you drive through, you rarely, if ever, see a For Sale sign. It’s as if

homes get gobbled up by buyers the moment they get listed.


It’s true, properties do tend to sell quickly in desirable, in-demand

neighbourhoods. Does that mean you’re destined to either hope for a lucky

break or miss out on ever living there?


Fortunately, no. There are practical things you can do to increase your

chances of getting into that neighbourhood.


Your first step is to find out the kind of new home you can afford. You want

to get your financial ducks in a row so when a listing does come up in the

area, you’re able to respond quickly. Find out the average price range of

homes in the neighbourhood. Then, if necessary, talk to your lender or

mortgage broker.


The second step is to get your current property ready for sale. You don’t

necessary need to list it now, but you want to be in a position to do so

quickly, if necessary. You may need to clean up and declutter, get repairs

done, and spruce up your home in other ways.


The third step is to talk to me.


You see, listings in popular neighbourhoods often move fast. By the time

you see them advertised on the internet, they may be gone. I can closely

monitor listings in that area for you, so the moment one comes up that

meets your criteria, you can be alerted. This greatly increases your chances

of getting that home.


So if there is a dream neighbourhood you’d love to get into, give me a call.
