Search Online Before You Reach Out
One of the luxuries of the 21st century is easy access to information whenever we want it. Searching online for property to buy was unheard of 20 years ago. Now, you can search online before you reach out to a REALTOR® - while in your pajamas, from your desk at work on on your tablet at your kid's soccer game. We think this is great! In fact, I encourage you to gather as much information as you can about the kinds of homes you like, neighborhoods that interest you and favorable financing options.
You're not alone, everybody does it!
The National Association of REALTORS has studied buyer and seller trends (see infographic at right) and found that buyers of all ages search for homes for 2 weeks before contacting a real estate agent. This is because, you can only gather so much data before you need an expert to help you sort out the wheat from the chaff. We hope you are just about to hit the 2 week mark and contact Alphonso to get professional assistance and advice.
