We are so often asked the same question, "when is a good time to buy?". Without a crystal ball, it's hard to give a definitive answer for that question, but what we like to say is that the best time to buy is simply when you are able to buy. With home values still on the rise, there is a lot of talk that there will be an increase in mortgage rates with the year - so if you were thinking of buying in the next year or so, you should try to do so sooner than later to avoid facing higher monthly payments!
* Pro Tip: Speak with a lender to help determine what monthly payments you are comfortable making.. Don't have a Lender? We have some great recommendations!
Sellers are seeing their homes sell with multiple offers in a very short amount of time, and for Top Dollar! We are in a HOT Sellers' Market - Sellers carry most of the control here. With more pressure on buyers to make the purchase, buyers might be willing to make more concessions to help you accept their offer and seal the deal. You may be able to ask to rent-back the home for a short period to give you more time for moving and/or make your home sale contingent upon you first finding a new place to live.
* Of course, the best approach to help optimize your home sales return is to simply have the right agent in your corner. Be sure to find an agent that is dedicated to you & deliver your best results!

Fall is Here! Weather is Finally Cooling Down ...When Will
"Joseph with the Arendsend Group was the Agent that helped us to buy our first home and we could not have been happier with the experience. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the industry. He was able to take the time to hear what our wants and needs were as well as give us insight on things that could be beneficial to us in the long run. He found us the perfect home for our lifestyle and budget, as well as a great investment for our future.
He made the process very easy and stress free cooridinating the loan as well as the notary. I was most inpressed with how he made himself available whenever we had questions (as I am the type to ask ALOT of questions). The seller of our home wanted to close very quickly and Joseph made it happen working hard to get all of our ducks in a row so that escow would be easy and quick.
I have nothing but good things to say about purchasing my first house. I expected it to be very difficult being a first time buyer, but I couldn't believe how easy it was. Thanks to our Agent.
Joseph also does Property Management, so when the time comes to use the purchase of our home as an income property...there is no one else I would trust to help us put that together.
Great experience! Thank you Joseph and the Arendsen Group!"
