The Improved Albuquerque Market

by Sandi Pressley

Good Monday Morning!

Yes, the Real Estate market has improved in the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho areas. Statistics indicate that the value of homes has not changed much at this time as a result of the improved market. This means that even though there are more buyers out looking and there are fewer homes to choose from, the price that you can expect to obtain from a sale has not yet changed. If you have a home on the market or if you are considering the sale of your home, you still must be realistic about pricing your home. Well priced homes sell quickly right now, but the over priced homes still just sit. Sellers who price high to test the waters just might miss this market and the chance to sell. There is a great deal of opportunity right now if you are thinking about selling to purchase another home. To take advantage of this market and the low mortgage interest rates it is important to be realistic with pricing your home.

Have An Awesome Week!

It is Still a Great Time to Purchase a Home

by Sandi Pressley

Good Tuesday Morning!

Yes, the market is heating up and the inventory of homes available for purchase has decreased significantly over the past six months. In fact, homes that are in great condition and priced well don't stay on the market long. The Albuquerque and Rio Rancho market area is even seeing multiple offers again. It is still a great time to purchase a home. Mortgage interest rates remain at historic low levels and home prices have not increased significantly, although this is on the horizon if current market conditions continue.

If you're a home buyer, among the things you can do to be prepared is to have a plan of action. If you're an aggressive buyer eager to find a home, hire a real estate agent that can help you find what you're looking for and will act quickly when properties hit the market.

When a home is first listed it will get the most attention. In a hot real estate market that could mean not just viewings but multiple offers and even offers that are over the listing price (not something we're used to thinking about lately, but that's the nature of real estate - it cycles through ups and downs).

So, if you're really serious about finding a home in a market where the inventory has dropped and the prices have increased, be prepared to take action the minute homes come on the market. Don't delay and say, "I'll drop by this weekend when I get a free moment." In some of today's markets, procrastination could be the deal breaker.

The Sandi Pressley Real Estate Team has 5 Home Buyer Specialists. Our Specialists do not list homes, they only work and represent home buyers. Working with a Home Buyer Specialist can make a significant difference in a market like the one we are in today. A Buyer Specialist knows the market, keeps on top of the current home inventory and can help you be on top of the best home purchase opportunities as they come about. Having a real estate agent working for you in this capacity in this market can make a significant difference in what kind of home you find and how much you pay for it. Contact us if you are interested in being fully represented as a buyer. You will love this approach to purchasing a home.

Have An Awesome Week!
