As I mentioned in the last Market Trend Report, there are many buyers looking to purchase a home.  The low inventory is making it very challenging for many first time home buyers, especially dealing with multiple offer situations and competing with all cash buyers.  I recommend working with your Realtor in writing a strategically prepared offer.  Lastly, make sure you have a homebuyer’s consultation.  The education you obtain from the usually free, no obligation, consult will allow you to make smart decisions and eliminate surprises during the escrow period.
