If deadlines can’t be met, you can lose the home. We are seeing a lot of back-up offers so if someone overpromises but underperforms things can fall out of escrow.
Searching for the right home to buy might take a little longer. According to an annual survey by the National Association of Realtors, the typical buyer searched for a home for a median 12 weeks and visited 10 homes, down from 12 homes in the previous year’s survey.
It helps to find a real estate professional you can trust to help you in your search. We are going to be your eyes and ears and tell you what is going on. Use our free mobile app with information about homes for sale, and includes the ability to search within a particular school district.

Also be sure to scout out neighborhoods where you’d like to live so you are prepared to make an offer when a home you like becomes available. Most buyers are choosing a home based on the neighborhood. They want to be close to work or close to family and friends. If you are an entry level buyer you want to make sure you understand that neighborhood. Try it in rush hour, at night and in the morning.
