Know The Market
Download apps that will alert you the moment a home hits the market. Most reality websites and apps will have an option for this, USE IT. It was put there for a reason. Email alerts, app alerts, anyway to be sure that you are notified within minutes of a new home becoming available.
Find An Aggressive/Quick Agent
In a fast paced market, you want an agent on your side and who puts in the work. Don’t be afraid to spend a little extra money on someone who will do their job right! Make sure they not only are quick with the market, but can simplify it all for you as well. Seems like a tall order, but really if you are paying, you order it!
In a market that is fast, you have to be prepared to make an aggressive offer on a home you are interested in. In a market like this, there is no time to be picky, because before you know it, that home will be under contract with someone else.
Hopefully these tips help you with your home purchase!
