Buying now? What a strange spring market. Our economy is driven by real estate and although it has been somewhat disrupted, the market is still strong.

What to do if you’re looking to enter the market now as a buyer:

Be safe, not only for yourself and your family but also for your real estate professionals and your seller. Looking into vacant homes or new construction? Great. But if you’re looking for property with people living there, be super safe and understanding.

Limit in-person interaction with the seller as much as you can. Make sure your first offer is a good offer. This is no time to be low-balling; there is still high demand for long-term properties. You don’t want your offer to look foolish.

Trust your real estate professional. This is not a do-it-yourself type of situation, especially now. It’s a volatile and difficult time to navigate the market alone.

Be respectful and reasonable. Don’t expect perfection in the negotiation and balance of the transaction. Present your offer and behave as if you were the seller.
