Turbulence and Real Estate!!!???

A Real Estate transaction can be like an Airplane ride…Your Oregon Airport Belle!!!

You’ve probably experienced it…you are on airplane flight and just want to get home. And then turbulence happens. Fasten your seatbelts and be prepared for the unknown…but that pilot is planning on landing safely and getting you home.

Real Estate sale processes can be similar to airplane turbulence. Today’s real estate market isn’t easy to figure out. Our industry has hit some unknown turbulence and new patterns. More than ever, working with a full time, professional Realtor to get you into your home is critical.

30 years of experience in working in the real estate industry has taught me, that for the most part, sales were typically matching a piece of property with a buyer that has a desire. That’s true still, but things have changed.

This changing market has some of us scratching our heads, honestly. But here are some things I know….

· Historically, low interest rates and high inventory make it a great time to buy.  Right now…our inventory is a little low.  But I’m looking for airport listings all the time!  If you know a pilot that wants to sell…well, you know what to do!  Give them my name!!
· If you want to buy a home, get Pre-qualified right away.
· If you see a home that you like come on the market, don’t be afraid to make an offer right away. Sometimes hesitating can make you lose the house to another buyer.
· If you don’t have to sell your home, don’t. Good time to upgrade!
· If you have mortgage payments that are sending you reeling, just remember, you have some options.
· If you choose not to sell “low” and not move up now, it may cause you to miss a great deal on your new, bigger home (since rates & prices are so attractive).

This often turbulent market takes an agent who is knowledgeable, isn’t afraid of hard work, who is willing to push up her sleeves and get the job done. Knowing what to do when the turbulence of the process causes some stress… is key. There’s almost always an answer, almost always a solution or an idea.

Creative thinking and being willing to go the extra mile and help to navigate your real estate future is what you’ll get when working with Connie Knittel.
