Once you start thinking about buying a home, numerous friends and family will give you advice. But are they talking about the current real estate market? Or is it outdated real estate advice from the market years ago?
Some of the common pieces of outdated real estate advice are:
– Wait for Spring – This is outdated real estate advice because there may be more homes for sale in the spring, but there are also more buyers to compete with. And sellers expect to get top dollar in the spring market so you may not have a strong negotiating position.
– Wait for Home Prices to Come Down – This is outdated real estate advice because you might look back in 2-3 years and wish you had purchased when the prices were lower. Also, as purchase prices go up so do rental prices. Are you really better off to wait?
– Make a Lower Offer so you’ll have room to negotiate – This is outdated real estate advice because sellers are less inclined to engage in a back and forth negotiation – especially if they have other offers to choose from.
