Struggling With Buying A Home in 2021?

Are you struggling with trying to buy a home in 2021? So is everyone! Here at Astor Lane Realty, we educate our buyers before they step foot in a home to ensure they are educated on the entire home buying process. With that said, here are 3 things that you need to make sure are happening to help get your offer accepted.

1) Your realtor is working with your mortgage professional to ensure you are fielding the best possible offer. Knowing how much you can afford and the appropriate loan program will help you compete with other buyers.

2) Your realtor has educated you on the buying process to ensure you understand everything from beginning to end? Just because you bought a house 5 years ago or in another state does not mean you have up to date info on how things operate in our area.

3) Your realtor is communicating with the listing agent to ensure your offers are aligning as much as possible with the seller's goals? Not all realtors will prioritize building rapport with the listing agent. This can often lead to missing out on information that can help you and the seller. If these things are NOT happening then you need to reassess your approach.

Help Our Veterans, Homeowners!

Best Way Homeowners Can Help Veterans

 

In a market where there is so much competition, there is one group of homeowners that are finding it even more difficult to purchase a home in the Hudson Valley, NY. Parts of the region like Westchester County NY, Rockland County NY, Putnam County NY, and Dutchess County NY are seeing significant increases in demand for home buyers looking to move up north from New York City. The pandemic has caused a spike in demand for extra space and, more importantly, outdoor space to assist those that are home a majority of the time due to remote situations.  This has caused a supply issue since demand increases daily. The byproduct of a massive buyer pool means those that are using VA and FHA financing are losing out in multiple offer situations due to being at the bottom of the hierarchy. The graphic below (obtained from MY KCM Page) displays the small percentage of homes that are being sold where buyers are using VA loans.

Home Sellers: There Is an Extra Way To Welcome Home Our Veterans | MyKCM

As a homeowner fielding multiple offers, you owe it to yourself to ensure you are educated on all the different types of loan programs that are available to buyers. This way, you will feel good knowing you are not relying solely on your local real estate agent to advise you which offer is best.

Selling Your House On Your Own In Westchester County

Why Selling Your House On Your Own In Westchester County Can Be A Huge Mistake!

 

There is no denying how HOT the real estate market is in Westchester County and other parts of the Lower Hudson Valley, NY. However, selling in the time frame you want AND for the price you want is not automatic. Most successful realtors have a marketing and internet strategy that will ensure your home gets the maximum exposure it needs. In this age of technology, 51% of buyers are using the internet with 28% using a realtor. That adds up to 79% of buyers leveraging technology or a professional.  In addition, homes that sell with an agent end up selling 6% higher than those that sold on their own. This may be why the percentage of homeowners selling on their own have dropped significantly since the mid 80's.

If you are curious about our firm's marketing strategy that enables us to sell homes quickly through our stress free listing program then schedule a call below:
