Step Three In Our Home-Buying Process: Search For Homes
The fun part! You’ve likely been searching online for homes that meet your needs. Disclaimer: not all real estate websites are the same. Unfortunately, many people often search the larger warehouse-style real estate websites which seem to provide a large amount of information, but the problem we often hear about is that many of the homes listed on these large sites are not available any more. The Tomlin Team’s home search page is patched directly into the MLS and is an accurate, up-to-date source for those searching for Real Estate in the North Texas area. Utilizing the right tools and systems ensures you see every available home that meets your criteria. Your agent will schedule showings and help you find the perfect home.
Time to see properties!
Once your top homes have been identified, it’s time for your Realtor to schedule appointments and preview the homes with you. If your strategy is to find a “deal”, then it’s wise to strategically search for homes that have been on the market beyond the average DOM (days on market) for homes in your area. Those Sellers will be more likely to negotiate more aggressively than Sellers whose homes have only been on the market for a few days or less than a month. If you and your Realtor have prepared correctly, it should only take seeing several homes before you’re ready to make an offer.
