Market Pulse

Buyers


Louis DiBella, The Cheney Group
“There is a big difference in a buyer being prequalified and a buyer who is preapproved for a mortgage. With preapproval, a lender has looked at all your financial documents and they have shared how much you can afford. It saves a lot of time so you aren’t looking at homes you aren’t able to afford. Honestly, that is the best first step when considering purchasing a home.”



Renters


Brian Kapprel, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
“Sellers use this market to upsize or downsize from their current home. Hire a photographer to take photos, and stage your home to maximize the space. If buyers are viewing your home, they have likely seen other homes in the neighborhood. When priced correctly, buyers will see the value in your home when they walk in. If this is the case, it will drive the offers over list price.”
