NH SunsetsSouthern NH Real Estate and NH Sunsets

What do NH sunsets have to do with southern NH Real Estate?  Everything, and just like catching that perfect sunset which takes advance planning, the right timing, the right equipment so does buying a NH home.  Especially if you want to buy at the right price with the best interest rate available.

The Southern NH real estate market is moving

The southern NH real estate market is moving into a strong sellers market and being prepared is crucial. There is no tomorrow when waiting to make an offer on that prefect house.  You snooze – you lose!   Working with a REALTOR who has worked in a sellers market before and one who can offer solid advice on how to help make your offer be accepted in a highly competitive market is so very important.  Remember, waiting until tomorrow might be okay when chasing the gorgeous NH sunsets but not when buying your dream home.

First Time Home Buyer Tips for New Hampshire buyers

The Path to Home Ownership Yes, now is the time to buy.

We have been seeing inventory levels here in New Hampshire shrinking for the last 3-6 months and prices are starting to inch up as well.  We have a lot of REALTOR® friends in all corners of the country and they are all saying the same thing. Inventories are at their lowest levels in many real estate markets and New Hampshire is no exception. We are also experiencing multiple offers on certain properties as well.

This is the time to buy especially if you are a first time home buyer. Why you ask? Interest rates are still at historic lows and prices are still very affordable.

Get with a reputable lender

You will need to have good credit and if you can put 20% down that will prevent you from having to pay PMI, Private Mortgage Insurance. There are still programs out there where you can put little to no money down. If you are a veteran and you have your VA certificate you can finance 100% of the sales price. If you decide to go FHA you can put down 3.5%. There are a few other programs out there as well and one of our mortgage specialists,  whom we have worked with over the last twenty years can help guide you through the process.

If you are serious enough about purchasing a new home we suggest that you get  pre-qualified. This way you will actually know home much you can afford for a new home.

A Buyer Agent will look out for you and your best interests

Once you’ve done that then you can go online and search for a new home but the best advice is to find a real estate agent that you feel comfortable working with. After all, This will probably be the most expensive investment you will ever make in your lifetime and if it’s your first home that can be a little scary and stressful. Once you have found that agent that you like and trust we suggest you sign a buyer’s brokerage agreement with them. Why you ask? Because, that agent will invest a lot of time and effort in finding you the right home. You need to have someone that listens and understands your wants, needs and desires in a new home, someone that will look out for you and your best interests. Sort of like one of your family would do.

Avoid Broker Hopping

We suggest you work with one agent because once you bounce around to different agents it’s almost like starting over and over again each time you switch. Once your agent knows exactly what you are looking for the process should become easier. They won’t be wasting your time looking at homes you have no interest in at all. A good agent will not only find you the right home but will protect your interests and help you navigate what can often be a bumpy road to home ownership.

You just put a Home Under Agreement what happens next | Home buying tips

The Path to Home OwnershipWhat can go wrong now

The Home buying process can be stressful and the path can often be confusing but a good agent can help guide you through the rough waters and get you to the point of home ownership. Once you’ve found your dream home, negotiated the price and had your home inspection… the tough part begins.  The waiting process, where much can still go wrong, can be extremely stressful.

Don’t buy a new car or furniture

It’s important that you don’t do anything to change your financial picture…don’t go out and buy a new car or furniture!  Keep in touch with your lender and agent and be prepared to submit a ton of paperwork! Ultimately you will get to the closing and get the keys to your new home!

Southern NH and the Seacoast area home prices on the way up

NH Real EstateAre the Southern NH and the Seacoast area home prices on the way up?

It’s hard to believe that another summer is almost over! But that goes a long way to showing us just how fast time goes by. It’s same with house hunting, sometimes it’s on the back burner, sometime we totally spin our wheels looking at all the wrong stuff, wasting our time, gas and getting discouraged with the whole process.

One thing that is for sure is that prices are starting to climb and activity is increasing in the Southern NH and Seacoast area. Now is not the time put house hunting on the back burner or be discouraged.

 

I should have bought back in 2012

Many people say that 3-5 years from now people will be saying “I should have bought in 2012” don’t be one of those. We see changes happening in the real estate market but right now we are still in a Buyer Market, however the shift is happening. That means before we know it, it will be a Sellers Market…. good news for sellers but not for buyers!

According to the National Association of REALTORS prices are rising

The National Association of Realtors Research data shows that the median price of single family homes rose 9.4 percent compared to one year ago. Yes, more sales of pricier homes this year compared to last year is partially responsible for that result. Still, the trend for home values is up according to NAR’s data.

 

If you’re ready to buy and want to take advantage of the market without spinning your wheels and wasting your time…give us a call at 603-944-9172 of just e-mail us at Jayandmonika [at] gmail [dot] com we would be more than happy to help you find that perfect place to call home.

Have a great “rest of the summer” and we hope we hear from you soon.
