Inventory in our market right now is very tight. There are not many homes for sale and by the time you find a home you like, there are probably a lot of other buyers interested in it already. That’s because almost every buyer in the market is simply chasing down the next house that hits Zillow, Redfin, or Trulia. You’re competing with everyone else because you are looking at the same thing everyone else is. You’re just part of the mob.
In this environment, if you’re a buyer and you want to win, you need to align yourself with a buyer specialist who can get you out ahead of a property before it’s on the market. Give the buyer specialist your parameters, and they should be able to run a full needs analysis. A good buyer specialist will then go and chase that property down, whether it’s on the market already or not.
You don’t want to work with a real estate agent who is trying to keep 10 plates spinning. Typical real estate agents handle buyers, listing appointments, marketing, and hundreds of other little details that detract their attention from your home search.
A buyer specialist only has one focus: finding you a home. They know what’s essential to getting you the right property. They will create inventory for you by calling expired listings, people who rented their home but may want to buy now, or homeowners.
Some buyer specialists will even call the listing agent of a property that is already under escrow to find out how things are going. If it looks like the escrow might fall through, your buyer specialist will allow you to slide right into that deal. This allows you to avoid the onslaught of buyers that property would face if it went back on the market.
As a buyer, the main thing you have to worry about is aligning yourself with the right buyer specialist. If you’re selling a home in this environment, there is a way to really take advantage of the current market and maximize your profit. That’s part of our 5 Day Blitz™ marketing strategy.
