Real Estate: A Buyers Market

When people think of the words, a buyer’s market, they may think that it means this is a good time to buy a home. This is actually right, but also wrong. A buyers market means that there are more sellers who are selling a home than there are people who are buying a home. A buyers market means that there are plenty of homes being sold, which makes it a buyer’s market, but not that many people are buying homes. A buyers market is the best time to buy a home because the prices are much lower during these times. Many houses have been sitting on the market for more days and weeks than most sellers would like. The best way to find the most up-to-date homes is by joining an email list that offers updates on dropping prices. These are the best times to negotiate on a good price for a great home. If a home is listed right away on an updated mailing list, it is better to wait for a month or more before trying to negotiate the price down on a home. A buyers market means that the prices of homes are dipping due to being on the market too long. This is a time for a person to take advantage of this type of market. Most sellers want to sell their home right away, and are not willing to budge on the price, unless the home has been sitting for many months.

Another advantage to a buyer’s market is that people have enough time to do their research to compare the prices for other homes in the same area as a home that they want. They want to make sure that they are getting the fairest price for their new home. If other homes are being sold for a lot less, but the one home that a person is interested in is being sold for a lot more, this can be an advantage for a buyer. A buyers market also gives buyers an advantage when it comes to requesting a contingency. A contingency can protect a buyer throughout the buying process. A contingency will allow a buyer to change their mind if they decide that a home is not right for them after all. It protects the buyer from the moment they negotiate on a price, and up until the closing. Allowance credits are also an advantage to a buyer during a buyer’s market. If a buyer does not like the look of something in the home they are about to purchase, they can ask their lender for a six percent credit allowance to allow them to fix the home.

The great thing about a buyer’s market, is that a buyer can be in complete control of the whole sale. When a buyer is about to close on a home, they can ask the seller to pay for the closing costs. This is completely legal and advantageous in a buyer’s market.
