Great news for homebuyers amid COVID-19
If you're getting cold feet about buying a home right now, here's a real-life story you need to read.
Just last Monday, Christie was in your shoes. She sent us a farewell email expressing that she wanted to wait a few months before continuing her search. She also couldn't afford to pay for her closing cost fees.
But what she didn't know was that...
💸 Now is the best time for me to negotiate sellers to give my buyers cash for closing costs
🏆 With fewer people on the roads, buyer competition is incredibly low
💲 Sellers are desperate to sell and are more likely to accept lower offers
📱 Virtual tours allow buyers to get detailed walkthroughs without leaving home
(Did you know 35% of homebuyers make offers on homes sight unseen, anyway?)
Christie listened to our advice and booked a virtual tour of a beautiful home in Clearwater.
By Friday, she was under contract. With our negotiations, her offer was accepted with an $8,000 price reduction PLUS she received $6,500 in cash from the seller to go toward her closing costs.
She instantly saved $14,500 for striking while the market is still hot.
If you haven't scheduled a virtual tour yet - don't wait!
