Signs are beginning to show that the Colorado housing market might be swinging back to favor buyers after a long seller’s market run. The Denver Post reported that inventories are rising and although there is still heavy demand, there are certain factors that lead some experts to believe that this is the time for serious home buyers to enter the market.
The article points to the buyer’s ability to borrow. The average home price has risen to a level that is causing mortgage lenders to worry that not enough people will qualify for the home loan amount necessary to purchase these “average priced” homes. Nutter Home Loans, a national mortgage lender, has been an advocate of qualifying home buyers before they enter the real estate market. Having a preapproval letter from a respected lender such as Nutter Home Loans, can be the difference between presenting a winning offer and losing out on your dream home.
While being preapproved for a home loan can put you on third base with your seller, there are other small things that you can do to drive your offer all the way home. According to The Trinity Team, you should present a letter to the seller with your offer. One that shows how excited you are to call this your first home, how you can’t wait for the many family gatherings you will host in the upcoming years and watching your kids grow up in that spacious back yard so close to their schools, and so many other occasions. Selling a home can be an emotional experience and this approach has a way of softening the handoff to someone new who will be occupying the home they have spent years making their own.
Nutter Home Loans can help make your home buying experience as easy and as can be.
Since 1951, we’ve helped people save hundreds, or even thousands of dollars a month, when they purchase or refinance their mortgage with Nutter.
