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
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.
