As I mentioned in my last “Times They Are a’Changin’” post, I am hopeful for a market correction (or the start of one) in the Boulder County, Broomfield and Westminster market, in the spring / summer 2019.
That said, it is easy for home buyers to quickly jump on and feel empowered…after all, it has been so very long since home buyers have had much of a say in the hot local real estate market. But I want to caution, change will most likely not come in like a wrecking ball! It will creep in slowly.
So what does that mean if you are looking to purchase a new home or a replacement home in 2019? It means that the expertise of your Realtor® is going to be more important than ever! What it means is:
As Realtors® we do not “make” the market, we simply interpret it. You hired your buyer’s agent, for their expertise and to help you navigate the purchase of your home, when determining how much to offer on a home and what terms to offer, trust in your good judgement about choosing a Realtor® and let him or her do their job to best advise you about writing a strong and competitive offer.
In closing, if you are in the market to purchase a home, hire an experienced and knowledgeable Realtor® to assist you, then keep an open mind when your Realtor® makes suggestions regarding offer price and terms.
If you are looking to buy or sell your home in 2019, I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your real estate needs!
