Today’s Real Estate Market – Home Buyers and Home Sellers

After the economic downturn in 2008, the real estate market was a challenge for REALTOR as well as buyers and sellers.

Home Buyers: What Are They Looking For In Today's Real Estate Market?

Since buyers are already a select group with many choices, they can be selective about the properties they buy. Today I discovered that many of my buyers are eager to bring capital into the home they have purchased. 

Homebuyers who want to get "instant capital" when buying a home must prepare in two ways. First, an initial instalment of 5-20% is required depending on the type of your loan. Homebuyers also need to ensure that their credit score is high enough to qualify for loan approval.

Buyers who prefer to purchase property that is not owned by the bank will want to make those purchases based on their estimated current value. Experienced homebuyers will be looking for a virgin property. This type of buyer will most likely wish to move away and won't have to do any work on the property. This type of expectation is especially true for home purchases where people are shrinking from larger to smaller homes.
