Home Search Woes: Why Can't You Find the Right House?

Some people find the right home the first time they go out on showings... but some people look for months and just don't see the right one.  This can happen for a couple reasons.

  1. Inventory is Low: There is just not a large number of homes to choose from. This can be seasonal or due to the market climate... sometimes specific to an area that doesn't have much turn over.
  2. It Doesn't Match Up: Sometimes, the style/price and area you are looking don't match up making it nearly impossible to find a home you desire.For example, some cities or neighborhood primarily comprise of homes built in a certain era.  If you are not interested in a home of that age/style but you are set on that area, you may have a very hard time finding a home that you are interested in.

How can we get past this?
Give me a call and we will go over your criteria and compare it to the recent sales, inventory levels and home demographics for that area and see if we need to make any adjustments to your search.
