3 tips for real estate success in 2016

  • Start early. Spring and summer are the busiest seasons for home sales, so if you’re in the market to buy you’ll have a lot of competition for your dream home. Start house-hunting earlier in the year and you’ll still have plenty of homes to choose from with less risk of other buyers swooping in to snatch up a home you really want.
  • Consider new-construction. Home buyers, especially first time home buyers, are often wary of buying new homes due to perceived cost. However, new home construction is on the rise in 2016 and you may be amazed at just how affordable a new home can be. You’ll also likely have less competition. Take a look at Highland Park at Downtown Woodstock to learn more about these stunning new-construction homes for sale in Woodstock.
  • Do your research when arranging financing. Don’t just take the first quote you get when choosing a mortgage lender. Shop around, talk to multiple lenders, and see if you can find a better deal. Hunting down a fractionally lower interest rate may not seem like a big deal now, but over the life of your loan it could save you thousands of dollars. With mortgage rates expected to increase in 2016, it’s more important than ever to put in the legwork necessary to find the best financing.
