    I’m a First-Time Buyer: Can I Still Buy During Coronavirus?

    If you are a first-time homebuyer and were in the process of shopping for a house before the coronavirus, the pandemic likely put a wrench in your plans. But should it? When you’ve never bought a house before, you don’t know what you don’t know about the process, and buying a house for the first time during a pandemic isn’t an experience you can ask your friends and family about —  these are uncharted waters.
    The truth is, many first-time buyers are still buying homes during this crisis, but things are different now than they were before the pandemic. Here is what you need to know as a first-time buyer during the coronavirus.

    First: Know the rules are different everywhere
    Before you begin shopping for a home, know that the rules about the industries deemed “essential” during the pandemic vary state-to-state and even city-to-city. If you’re buying a home in the sa ...

    How to Interview a Real Estate Agent

    While home sellers have become more market savvy than ever thanks to the wealth of information at their fingertips, knowing how to choose a real estate agent can still pose a challenge.

    Between recommendations from friends, a family member with a dusty license on the shelf offering to help, and a dizzying array of review websites, it’s difficult to know who to trust with one of the most complex financial decisions of your life.


    Smart consumers interview potential real estate agents before they decide which agent they want to hire. Just as you're sizing up the potential for a good fit, the real estate agent will likely be interviewing you, too. Be wary of agents who don't ask you questions and probe for your motivation. You wouldn't work with just any agent off the street, and good agents are selective about their clients, too.


    It is crucial to know which questions to ask so your real estate agent can meet your expectations in terms of pricing, timing, and overall exp ...

    11 Reasons to Sell during the Holidays

    You’ve heard it from real estate agents before. “The Winter season is slow.” Or, “No one is really buying or selling.” And even, “I’ll get started in the New Year, it’s a new start right?”
    ...Wrong. The truth is, it’s better to be ahead than behind. The winter months are the perfect opportunity for you to find the motivated buyers, with less competition of homes on the market and better opportunity to sell for more!


    11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring when there are traditionally more houses on the market which could ultimately drive prices down. This could mean you sell high and buy low.



    10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.



    9. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings on Holidays and when needed.
