March Madness is not just for sports lovers, in real estate, March Madness and Home Buying on The Main Line really heats up! March is one of the biggest buying times of the year! Are thinking about buying? I am a Main Line buyers agent and expert on all seasons of buying. Let’s talk strategies for you to score the biggest points with the seller of the home of your dreams. If you are new to The Main Line market, you will want to familiarize yourself with all of the neighborhoods and their unique character, school districts, amenities, and commute time, if you make one. I have great resources and neighborhood guides that are absolutely free on my youtube channel and on my website. Next, start a list of your absolute necessities for a home. Beds and baths, configuration, square footage, amenities, and the “it would be great if it had” type of amenities. We have abundant homes on The Main Line, but they will be selling fast. Then, get prequalified. This takes the guess work out of all the looking. There are many financing options right now and financial products if you are a first time buyer or are looking to borrow in other ways. I have resources that support first time buyers particularly on my website, so be sure to check there for more in depth resources. Finally, prepare your line up! Transacting in real estate, requires an A-team of professionals from inspectors to lawyers. Be sure that you have vetted the right people to work on your behalf. One thing that people forget when hiring realtors and other professionals to assist in this transaction is that this is the biggest financial move you will likely make in your life. It is imperative that you have the right team working for you to win. In the spring we see a lot of sellers enter the market and while prices are stabilizing in many areas, The Main Line housing market is still very competitive. We see homes selling in a matter of days still, so it is important to be on the lookout and be prepared when homes go on the market, to move on them.
