The Struggles of Buying a Home in 2022 - And How to WIN!

Updated: Mar 10

2022 is already gearing up to be a crazy year. We believe that it's still a great time to buy/sell. We're noticing a large disparity gap between the buyers who achieve their goals - and those who fall short. In this blog, we're going to do our best to show you how to end up with the keys to your dream home.


Instead of viewing it as winners vs losers, we're labeling it as follows:

The Prepared


Buyers who take required steps and plans to achieve their goals of home ownership.

The Unprepared

Buyers who run into the market unprepared and uninformed, and expect some poor agent to magically make something happen.


Not fun and exhausting.




 

What Are The Steps to Success?

Step 1: Meet with Sean and Blanca to review the buying process.


During this meeting you'll learn the home buying process and learn all of the strategies to help you WIN!


How important do you think this step is? Like Gandalf VS The Balrog important!


Step 2. Get fully qualified with a good lender [Not with an XYZ online lender]

  • Review your loan estimate

  • Which program will you use? (FHA, Conventional, VA)

  • Understand your downpayment

  • Understand your closing costs

  • Have your credit and finances in order

  • We have great lenders - just ask

Step 3. Have clear goals:

  • Where do you want to live?

  • Your budget?

  • What's your timeline?

  • How flexible can you be?

  • How aggressive will you be?

  • How bad do you want this?

Step 4. Have an Aggressive Mindset


Can we be honest?

If your fear of overpaying is greater than your desire to own a home, this isn't the time for you to buy. We're here to give you all of the market knowledge, strategies and tools to win (and not overpay).


In the next section, you'll see how some of our buyers had to be aggressive to win in multiple offer situations.


 


How crazy is the market?

We'll show you the offers that have won since 2020.

What are the winning strategies?

Listed below are some of the strategies that we use. Each purchase is different so we employ these strategies as needed and when needed. We'll cover these in detail when we meet with you.


We have been building strategies for 16 years in real estate. I don't expect you to understand each of these, but we wanted to show you that's it's not as simple as running out and seeing homes and making offers.


Get Ready - Get set - GO!
