The Colorado real estate market has become synonymous with high prices, low inventory and great demand. “In a fast-paced market where homes are listed and under contract in record pace, it is very important to have an agent who represents you,” said Keller Williams Clients Choice Realtor Jodi Bohenna, who is among the top 10% of agents in the Pikes Peak region and a member of The Peak Producers.
In order to help buyers get their offers accepted,Bohenna, recipient of the Keller Williams Triple Gold award, lists the following three tips.
No. 1: Always speak to a lender beforehand. “This will provide you with a guide of what you can afford and if buying is the best option for you,” said Bohenna.
No. 2: Get prequalified. Prequalification for a mortgage proves to the seller that the buyer is serious about buying and is capable of affording their home. “The seller will favor an offer that leaves little to chance,” noted Bohenna.
No. 3: Keep the bid free of contingencies. This includes making the purchase conditional on the sale of your current home. “The key to saving money when purchasing a home is sticking to a plan,” concluded Bohenna.
“Buying a home can be emotional; negotiating the price shouldn’t be. Remember that buying a home is a business transaction, and treating it that way will help you save money. Great homes that are priced competitively can draw multiple offers in any market.”
