The 2021 market is off to an amazing start. Open houses with literally 100 plus people showing up. What does this mean in terms of booking a showing? Well there are a few things we want to point out to you so you can find success in getting an appointment at a time that works for you.
Timing is everything so as soon as you know you want a showing reach out to your agent and set the showing up. If you do not have an agent reach out to us here at Movementum we can show any and all properties. The sooner you reach out the better chance you have of getting the appointment you want.
Be prepared for a fast showing. If needed, bring a camera and some not paper. Most showings are limited to mere minutes and offer deadlines are looming. It is important when you get the chance to see it to take it all in. Make sure to video for notes if you feel it is going too fast.
Pre-approvals have and will always be the first step to buying a home. Now more so than ever with COVID restrictions. Lots of homes are not even allowing a showing if you do not have a pre-approval so make sure to take care of that right away. Keep in mind just cause you get a preapproval from someone it does not lock you down to that bank.
Lastly remember on the day of the showing it may not go as scheduled. Dress warm and be prepared to wait. With the huge crowds and COVID limits showings are not always on time. We will do our best to make these waits as short as possible.
If you are looking for someone to help buy or sell a home, reach out to us. We would be happy to connect you with one of our Realtors.
